We have no need for the past. All we need are the present and the future.
There's nothing more deceiving than an obvious truth.
To hate something that you used to love is such a painful feeling.
Love means money these days.
Those bound by superficial rules who do not use their pawns to the utmost are fools.
Don't cry; it's pathetic. Crying won't change anything. The world is never kind to anyone.
Words are cheap. There's no guarantee she won't tell anyone. Humans lie without a second thought. Including me, of course.
I have long forgotten how to laugh as if I were having fun.
If we are to die one day, wouldn't it be better to have no regrets?
We mock their desperate wishes, and trample them like insects! Cowardly, base - we're more demonic than demons are! I'm just like them. I'm full of the same ugliness they were. This is how humans are. It's how we are, Sebastian!
If you stick to a "lie", it'll eventually become the "truth".
Only two kinds of people exist in this world, those who steal and those who are stolen from.
I am not so noble that I would stake my life for someone else. Nor am I so forgiving that I would sit by and allow someone to trample me. I am selfish... and self righteous human being! That's why! I... to clear my own shame... I used your power. Not for anyone else! But for myself!
After all, justice in this world is just a bunch of principles, made by those with power to suit themselves.
Moping around with sadness and sorrow... what will come of it? Even dead people can do that. However, I'll live and stand on my own two legs. If we are going to die one day, wouldn't it be better to have no regrets?
You should keep your distance from me if you want to live. My place is in the shadows, yours in the light. We walk opposite paths, Aberline. It's best that you remember that.
Is there truly any human who is not arrogant?
We as humans have the power to do such, but whether we grab on to the thread or not is a choice we make.
I'm afraid when something is truly lost, one can never get it back again.
Yes, Children can be quite demanding about their games.
Unfortunately, in reality there is no situation where one can win merely by following the rules. There will be knights that break the rules, and even chess pieces that betray him.
Pain tends to heal as time passes, but personally, I don't want time to heal my wounds. You may think you've escaped the pain and forgotten it, but that's nothing more than stagnation. You can't move forward without the pain.
Forget about revenge, and live on.
I was born to end up alone.
You can only disgrace the dead so much.
Sebastian, you know what to do.
Do not-arrogant people exist?
I ... humiliated as a pet ... my house was burnt, my family was killed. I was such a... powerless kid. Therefore, I returned to this place in order to make those people who put me through such fate taste the same humiliation. The successors of the generations killed three years prior would come to me as long as I am the head of the Phantomhive family that stands in their way. I'm waiting ...for them to come and try to kill me here.
So what? You're another person, so of course you look different. What do you need to be ashamed for? Besides, I'm free to be with whoever I want. No one has the right to say anything about it.
Listen when people are talking to you!!!
He is nothing more than one of my pawns. However, he is not a normal pawn. He is a pawn that can get across the whole board in one move.
What are you lazily standing around for? You obtained me my revenge. This is an order! Come and eat my soul already! Until the very moment when you eat all my soul you are my butler - Sebastian Michaelis!
*to Sebastian* Let's go, you cat-obsessed moron.
I'm sorry. Seeing Sebastian's corpse so many times... is just too much for me...
I'm a human being, Sebastian!
I'm arrogant, but not so much that I'd irresponsibly save someone just to brag about it.
*to Sebastian* I don't need your "fawning". It's disgusting.
*to Prince Sohma* Who's my best friend? Don't say such ridiculous things.
It's in bad taste to play games that make me feel like throwing up, Demon!
Enough already! I'm going to feel queer if I continue to live like this!
Father, Mother, God, please... Why? Why is there no one? No one comes to our rescue.
*to Sebastian* You shall never betray me. You shall never leave my side. No matter what!
I'm afraid today's game was quite uninteresting.
To smile happily, I've... forgotten.
*to Sebastian* You idiot!! Do you think I'd dance with a big, male partner like you?!
It's not like I became her fiancée. I was forced to do it.
Yes, "kids" have a great greed for games.
If you are crying, fight against it! If you're regretting, walk forward! Only complaining on your misfortune, you're nothing but a common pig!
Make it hurt. Carve the pain of my life into my soul.
I thought that even if you died, somehow you would protect me.
*Ciel to Prince Sohma* There are some things you can never get back, no matter how much effort you put in. And there are some feelings of despair, that you can never ever shake off.
No, I won't abandon hate. If I did, then nothing would be left of me.
It's coming out~~~ *during the corset scene*
You aren't wrong. You fought to protect your world. What's wrong with that? In the end, "justice" is just an official line taken by those in power to serve their own ends. No one's looking out for others. If you're careless, you'll be robbed. There are only two kinds of people in this world. Those who steal, and those who are stolen from. And today, I steal your futures. That's all this is.
When something is gone, it will never return.
Kneel like a worm and beg the demon to do it.
