Once again, thanks to Angelica for tagging me for this exciting little challenge!
• Thank the person who nominated you.
• Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote for each day, can be a super short post).
• Nominate three new bloggers each day.
“Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost. That is alchemy’s first law of Equivalent Exchange”
I kid you not, I suffered through two years of IB HL Chemistry in high school thanks to Fullmetal Alchemist. I barely knew anything about sciences back when I was making the choice between chemistry, biology, and physics (you need one to fulfill the requirements of the IB program), and I chose chem because…hey, balancing equations! Isn’t that just like equivalent exchange? How naive…(and yes, I might just have taken physics if the last anime I watched had been Steins;Gate or something). Chem wasn’t that bad in the end. I got through it by relying on pure memorization rather than understanding. The knowledge is kind of useless to me today, but then how many high school subjects are all that relevant to your life in the end?
About the quote though, I can very much agree with what it claims. I mentioned in yesterday’s quote post that I don’t believe in optimism. Life is full of sacrifices, and I think that’s something to recognize – without acknowledging this loss, your gain is a lot less valuable. There’s something poignant about this quote that I really like.
Again, only if you have the time~
And like last time, here’s a bonus I found:
No idea where it came from (probably not an actual Gluttony quote), but this is oddly depressing…
