His hard face was emotionless. "Yes ... as luck would have it, you've been impaled by a piece of junk right in a vital point. You're bleeding to death."

When you decide to die, remember to give the enemy the same honour.

At the Battle of Harz, the Order’s last, climactic struggle with the Infernalist Tezghul the Insane, Hoffmann not only commands the Artisan contingent, he personally supervises a battery of very powerful rapid-firing cannon. Tezghul, seeing his vilest allies ripped to shreds by these guns, desperately sends a screaming horde of followers against them. Surrounded when the fourth wave of assailants finally gets through, Hoffmann and his crews calmly detonate their entire powder-stores, leaving that entire flank of the field empty of life (and undead).

Even in the book of lies, sometimes you find truth. There is indeed a season for all things. And now that I see you flesh-to-flesh and blood-to-blood, I know I cannot raise my hand against you. But know this: you are my greatest disappointment.
Does your master hear me? Atlas! You can kill me, but you will never have my city! My strength is not in steel and fire, that is what the parasites will never understand. A season for all things, a time to live, and a time to die. A time to build... AND A TIME... TO DESTROY!
Andrew Ryan, after rigging Rapture to self-destruct, BioShock

Urzur: Wake up, Belial. [the dragon slowly gets to his feet] You don't have time to die. [Belial is silent] What's wrong? Obey me!

"I pity Dwight. It's as though every action he takes brings the opposite of what he intends. Trying to help his fellow employees from an abuser he ends up shutting down the entire operation, leaving many in a far worse situation than they ever were in. Granted, spiking a narcissist's drink and watching him unravel was worth the price of admission. The many memories of Survivors struggling with narcissists have led me to the conclusion that there are only three possibilities when relating to a narcissist. Enable them. Run away from them. Or... destroy them. But beware, narcissists take everyone with them when they go down."
The Observer, Dead by Daylight
