Quotes and inspiracional sources

Post by Cèsar de Quart on Thu May 23, 2013 1:01 am

Watching Lawrence Olivier's Richard III I have found several quotes that can be useful in order to give flavour to text boxes. For example, when a kid becomes a psychopath:

“Why, I can smile and murder whiles I smile,
And cry 'content' to that which grieves my heart,
And wet my cheeks with artificial tears,
And frame my face for all occasions”

“And thus I clothe my naked villainy
With odd old ends stol'n out of holy writ;
And seem a saint, when most I play the devil.”

When a kid is set as hateful of some manner:

“And therefore, — since I cannot prove a lover,
To entertain these fair well-spoken days, —
I am determined to prove a villain,
And hate the idle pleasures of these days.”

When someone becomes ambitious:

"Forgive me, my Lord, for I desire a Crown, a Kingdom, a State
to master my people, my kinship, my pride."

And when he becomes cynical or un-romantic in some way:

“Conscience is but a word that cowards use,
Devis'd at first to keep the strong in awe:
Our strong arms be our conscience, swords our law.
March on, join bravely, let us to't pell-mell;
If not to heaven, then hand in hand to hell.”

Talking about quotes: would it be possible to include the source of the quotes on the loading screen of TPatT? Some are really awesome and would like to use them for other purposes Smile

It's all Shakespeare's plays.

Yes, although I though I recognised one from the Parsifal. But no, it was Shakespeare too.
