"For a few to be immortal, many must die."
― Henry Hamilton (In Time)
"All the time [people] save, they lose to us. We drain it off, we hoard it, we thirst for it. Human beings have no conception of the value of their time, but we do. We suck them dry, and we need more and more time every day, because there are more and more of us. More and more and more. . ."
― A member of the Grey Gentlemen to Momo (Momo)
