If I stop here, I feel like it would break... My soul will break.

But, even so, with heart and soul you try to brake through. There will be a day, that even dirt will dry and fall off. (Gintoki to Catherine "Gintama chapter 24, page 19")

Gintama: A prison, you say? You think you'll be free if you go to the world above? A girl like you can never be free no matter where you go. After all, we humans are apes put in a cage called Earth.
