Regardless of all that, you have chosen November 1930 as the start of the story..."

    • "So what if I'd spare him? In my mind it's the certainty in myself that I possess which allows me to have that kind of mercy or compassion. There's no wavering on that point.

    • "This world is mine. I think this world may even just be a long, long dream I'm watching. You guys may just be illusions, and it can't be proven whether or not you really exist either. In other words, this world was created with me at the center. So what will happen if I die? I don't know. My imagination isn't very creative; I just can't imagine myself dying. In other words, there is no way this world can completely disappear. But if I die, then everyone will disappear. I am the only one in this world who won't disappear. The rest are just people I see as if in a dream."

    • "Let me show you! I REALLY don't like you! Since I don't, I'll CLOBBER you! I'm gonna beat you as much as I want to, you hear me? I'm gonna hurt you OVER AND OVER AGAIN!
