|“||Welcome... to a real man's world.||„|
|~ Ringo Roadagain's last words, and his most famous quote.|
|“||I want you to attempt to kill me. A fair duel will allow me to grow as a human being. Devoid of pettiness... a murder attempt for the darkest of intentions will raise me toward sacred heights. I am yet incomplete, as a human. These are things that I must overcome. Divinity is pursuit.||„|
|~ Ringo Roadagain|
|“||Find the path of light! The shining path that one must tread... these are societal values and also a real man's values. They used to be synonymous in the past but currently... the two are not necessarily one and the same. The man and society are completely different ideals now, but the true road to victory requires embracing a real man's values... and you should be able to see it now.... Continue the race and find out for yourself the path of light. That is what I will pray for. And I thank you.||„|
