"The living... may not hear them. Their voices... may fall upon deaf ears. But make no mistake. The dead... are not silent."
― The Sorrow, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
"You think what Avatar Wan did was good? Driving almost all the spirits from this world? The Avatar hasn't brought balance, only chaos. You call yourself the bridge between the two worlds, but there shouldn't be a bridge; we should live together as one"
― Unalaq (Avatar the Legend of Korra)
