There are so many awesome quotes that could be made ...
 For me, there's one that stayed in my head: "When you look at Darkness, it looks back at you"

If I recall correctly, it was Schierke's thinking.

Friedrich Nietzsche inspired.  "Wer mit Ungeheuern kämpft, mag zusehn, dass er nicht dabei zum Ungeheuer wird. Und wenn du lange in einen Abgrund blickst, blickt der Abgrund auch in dich hinein."

He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster. And when you gaze long into an abyss the abyss also gazes into you.

Awesome, thanks for the insight. That's clearly Guts' situation with the growing Darkness inside him and demons tempting so that he makes a sacrifice. After all, with all that painful living, it'd be so much easier.

There's also Guts "When was the last time she smiled?". Just too many quotes.

"A good sword, even if it rusts and dulls, has good steel that never rusts left over in the wick. That steel's the ultimate steel. Even if it cracks, if you return it to the fire, it's sure to be reborn." ~ Godo, Volume 17.

I love this quote. It applies as much to Guts himself as it does the Dragon Slayer. Then there is his entire speech to Guts earlier in the volume, which was a damn fine speech.

That was from the DH translation.
