->'''Asuka''':''ďThatís... another thing thatís hard to deal with. I keep feeling like itís too good to be true, like I canít deserve something that feels that good so easily. Or itís some kind of trick. Or I get worried that heís in love with the mask I always tried to project and not the real me.Ē''\\ '''Daniel''':''ďWho, the brave, vibrant, indomitable genius he knew? He knows the real you more than anyone else. Or at least can feel the things he doesnít fully understand are in there. He knows you have pains inside you try to hide from everyone. He wants to help you, to take away those pains, or at least bear them together. Donít worry about what ĎAsukaí heís in love with. The answer is still Ďyesí. You can make yourself into that mask. Free will is the ne plus ultra in my realm. You can be who you want to be. And you have amazing will, Asuka. Just defeat your doubts and remember who you are; the girl who even death canít stop. I didnít choose the motto for your ship idly. The past defines you but does not determine you. Put it aside and decide who you are. Act as you would want to be. Or to put it a more vernacular way; fake it Ďtil you make it.Ē'' -->--''Fanfic/ACrownOfStars'', ''[[http://forums.sufficientvelocity.com/threads/a-crown-of-stars-nge-ou.11766/page-10#post-2491498 chapter 34]]''

->Although Bobby [Kennedy] had been very much involved in [[UsefulNotes/VietnamWar getting us into Vietnam]] ó he once said we had '[[AmericaSavesTheDay every moral right]]' to be there ó toward the end, he saw the light, or the votes, and became a peace candidate. Also, though I donít believe in character changes, I do have a theory that if you keep giving a conservative politician liberal speeches to read, he will eventually become a liberal, and vice versa. Friends of mine who were close to Kennedy tell me that in the last months of his life, he really seemed to believe his own rhetoric, had come to identify with the poor and the dispossessed. If so, good.

cIt's too late--I have cast myself into my mould. I wore vice like clothing, now it is stuck to my skin. I am truly a ruffian, and when I joke about people like me, I feel serious as Death in the middle of my gaiety. To kill Tarquin, Brutus played the madman, and what surprises me now is, he didn't lose his mind at that game. Learn from me, Philippe, here's what I have to say to you--don't work for your country.
