"Now listen closely, because this bit is very important. Existence, in all its forms and splendor, functions solely on one principle: God is infallible. To prove Him wrong would undo reality and everything that is. Up would become down, black would become white, existence would become nothingness. In essence, if they are allowed to enter that church, they'll unmake the world."
― Metatron, Dogma
"This, my silent friend, is an Engine. Lovely, isn't it? It's not often you get to see one up close, or at all. The gods themselves would love to get their hands on one of these pretty things. They keep the world turning, quite literally. But they also do other things. You'll see what I mean..."
― Freddy Beaumont/Loki (The Secret World)
"Without the Soul King, Soul Society would fall apart. The King is the cornerstone. Without the cornerstone, the entire structure would crumble. That is simply... the way of this world."
― Kisuke Urahara (Bleach)
