““Do you live your life for the moments when you’re happy? Do you live your life to feel good? To experience joy and to indulge the senses that give you pleasure? Good food. Good drink. Good sex. Good shit. Good piss. Rest when you’re tired. Why do people live their lives? “When you look at a cripple, begging for alms in the street, do you feel sorry for him? Does that mean that you think your life is better? This is presumptuous and arrogant. Would it be irony if they were happier in their life that you are in yours? Would you envy them then? Beloved children and pets are to be envied. They live their lives without responsibility, for their food and shelter is provided. They are shown affection and are cared for.””Ursus bitterly questions life: Chapter 19 - Promise of Life Rewarded
“When he looked at John and Yoko – though especially Yoko – Kosta was beside himself. Their message of “Give peace a chance,” didn’t ring true to the majority of the population; they were busy, trying to earn a living, and didn’t have time to spend worrying about peace. “Fuck both of you!” Kosta exploded as he watched them on the news, arguing their moronic points. “Say it in music; stop talking about it, fucking morons!” He went on a tear that night and kept shouting at the TV, like it was the physical manifestation of John and Yoko, themselves. What the hell did these overly affluent and self-indulgent millionaires know about the daily worries with which most people had to deal?The bed-ins became less of an issue after the Stanley Cup playoffs ended in May, with Montreal beating St. Louis in four games. Abortion and contraception were legalized in Canada, and after watching Midnight Cowboy in Vancouver, Kosta was forced to have a very uncomfortable conversation with Adam. John and Yo”Kosta relating to the news & entertainment he & Adam were enamoured with: Chapter 19 - Life Rewarded
“Adam’s Beatles were still in the news, even though they were no longer a group. During the Manson trial in Los Angeles, a lesser-known song, Helter Skelter, had been used in the proceedings. The claim was that Manson believed he had been following orders he heard in the songs. Charlie was a wily guy, Adam thought. He told Kosta that all he had to do was look at Manson’s eyes and listen to him to know he had been born an elite liar. He was very good, Adam continued. Though he was very good, he had gotten caught, and that was when even the best lose their credibility. Kosta listened to Adam’s new philosophy of lying and the intricacies involved – the reliance on formidable memory, as well as a concentrated effort to care enough about the fabrication to pull it off and remember how crucial it was to never be discovered.”Adam getting more in touch with his heritage: Chapter 20 - Allotted Existence
““Yes, Seneschal Quentin, we do have control over the Catholics, and the Luciferians believe that they have control over them through our Mason brothers,” Bernhardt continued. “It’s an area on which we don’t need to concentrate full attention. The situation we need to look after is one that has been plaguing us for ten years now. Since 1962, when they lost their Messiah and Supreme Tribunal, the Luciferians have been useless. “We have been able to determine what happened and to rectify the situation,” Russell continued. “A member of an old family wanted the power the boy had. He relocated his birth to a different location and took him from there.” “Kostadino Paleologos will be dealt with. He turned on the Engineer’s Plan. Though this boy is another matter upon which we’ll need to decide,” Bernhardt added. “He is the prophesied savior of evil: their Christ. Do we use him, or is he too dangerous to be allowed to live? The Knights of Malta and the Nobility will reach a decision soon enou”Quentin finding out the awful truth about his Templar Brotherhood: Chapter 21 - Hell in a Handbasket on Wheels
“Kosta, who had been silent until then, finally answered. “The Architects of the Great Work know why I did this. They know how all the worshiped deities came to be,” Kosta stated succinctly. “Adam doesn’t deserve the blame for the end of the world. Now he can make his own choices about what to do, without following a path determined by human fantasy.”“Human fantasy, imagination, novelty, it’s all been done, Kosta. All of our gods and devils are a rehashing of forgotten terrors and delights. We salvage and reconstruct past deities to accommodate our own unique beliefs.” Pike let the cigarette dangle from his lips as he pulled the slide-group of his pistol back, filling the chamber. “I’ll tell the Builders your answer.””Pike debating the reasons Kosta kidnapped the Antichrist, Adam: Chapter 22 - Collision
