"I will kill Cell. This world is a good place. Cell wishes to destroy it. I will not let that happen."

"Yes, we keep saying we are neutral and keep our distance from things that should not concern us. But sometimes a witcher faces ordinary, down-to-earth evil, the type of genuine grievance, injustice, or plain old iniquity so grand that even one of us will find it hard to pass calmly by. At times like these, said witcher should think twice before doing something foolish.

And when he is done, he had better not be expecting any praise or thanks, for he won't receive any. He must simply turn, walk away, and never come back."

To be blunt... it makes it kind of hard to give it my all. ...Or is that just a poor excuse for being lazy...? Hell if I know. All I know is... seeing what comes next... I can't afford not to care anymore."
