In the end the shadow was only a small and passing thing: there was light and high beauty forever beyond its reach.
Have hope, my friend
"Monsters are tragic beings. They are born too tall, too strong, too heavy. They are not evil by choice. That is their tragedy. They do not attack people because they want to, but because of their size and strength, mankind has no other choice but to defend himself. After several stories such as this, people end up having a kind of affection for the monsters. They end up caring about them."
Ishiro Honda (via ironiconion)
