  • Quotes (5)

    • Kiba: They say there's no such place as Paradise. Even if you search to the ends of the Earth there's nothing there. No matter how far you walk it's always the same road. It just goes on and on. But in spite of that, why am I so driven to find it?... A voice calls to me. It says, search for Paradise.

    • Quent: The thing about fairytales is there's always some truth in them.

    • Hige: I can smell a dog taking a dump 10 kilometers away.
      Kiba: Oh yeah? That must really stink.
      Hige: You're telling me!

    • Kiba: So why'd you follow me? Hige: I dunno, it smelled like something interesting was gonna happen so I just followed my nose...besides, you seem kinda interesting.

    • Hige: Having your pride doesn't count for much if your dead, you know?
