ok so for english i was told to pick someone from a movie, tv show, book, or history that i would like to be and act out my favorite scene or speech. i chose to do alphonse elric! the presentation has to be at least five minutes long. so far i'm gonna do the monologue al does at the end of the series while riding on the train with izumi.
"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. In those days, we really believed that to be the world's one, and only, truth.
But the world isn't perfect, and the law is incomplete. Equivalent Exchange does not encompass everything that goes on here,
but I still chose to believe in its principle: that all things do come at a price, that there's an end and a way,
that the pain we work through did have a reward, and that anyone who's determined and perseveres will get something of value in return, even if it's not what they're expecting. I don't think of Equivalent Exchange as a law of the world any more.
I think of it as a promise between my brother and me. A promise that someday we'll see each other again."
well thatz about a minute or minute and a half. does anyone know any other good monologues or longish quotes or something by al that i can use? thanks oodles!
