"I wake up every morning, get ready for work when I'd rather sleep in, deal with annoying clients, try and keep my finances in order, eat shitty food because I'm on the job, sometimes get stiffed for my services, stay overtime because something has to be done immediately, and come home to find that my husband managed to burn dinner again.

— Riven, speaking to a clone he is about to kill.
- "Something cannot be beautiful unless it means something. Whether music, words, monuments, or even life itself. You cannot see what others look like, only what they are meant to be. That is why you are important to me. You look past the lies and the pointless aesthetics of the world, and tell me what it all really is."
— Erika, to her servant.
- "For hundreds of years, she told me 'Go,' and I went. She told me 'Fight,' and I fought. She told me 'Give everything for my ambition,' and I gave everything I was. Now she has given me her last order, 'Live as a man, not a tool,' and so I say that as a man, I choose to freely love and protect you, until the very ends of time itself."
— Riven, speaking to Sakuya after Erika's death.
