    Opening quote by Alphonse Elric

    An opening quote by Alphonse Elric in Fullmetal Alchemist:
    "Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return."
    What a cool quote! If you want something in life, you first must learn to give this something. If you want love, you must give love. If you want money, you must give money. I think this is a fundamental law of nature used even today.

    But sometimes even you don't give anything, something comes accidentally... For example, even you don't give love... Love from someone enters to you, even though you don't love her, then hate comes back to this person... But that quote from Alphonse is real true, cause if you gave hate from some person, hate comes to you too but its not coming from the person you've made hatred, but from someone you love too... This hurts...

    Yeh, whilst you may not do anything and good things do come to you, but generally these things then aren't long lasting.

    Basically it comes down to the more you give in life, the more you get in return.

    then what about the poo pplz whose luck sucks so much that even when they spend their entire life trying they never succed?

    Dante and Hoenhiem had it right in FMA, there is no equivalent exchange in the "larger picture"; it only applies within yourself, not without.

    thanks to zyta for the sick sig and avy!

    Isn't that a greek saying by the way? That's a powerful quote because it makes you wonder what it means. if you give something you get something in return and viseversa that's what this quote basically means.

    Re: Opening quote by Alphonse Elric

    I am quite fond of Al's quote. However, there is nothing equal about it. It's hard to imagine gaining anything no matter how grand it is for not doing anything. For example, you win $1 million in the lottery, most would often say you did nothing to win that $1 million. But you did, you drove/walked to the store, purchased the ticket and paid attention to the lottery. Thats why I prefer the saying "Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return," over their idea of equivelant exchange as it does not specify of anything being of equal value.
