Ashes of Time (1994)
Ou-yang Feng: People say, when you can't have what you want, the best you can do is not to forget.
Ou-yang Feng: The harder you try to forget something, the more it will stick in your memory. Once I heard someone say that if you have to lose something, the best way to keep it in your memory.
Ou-yang Feng: If you don't want to be turned down by people, the best way is to turn them down first.
Ou-yang Feng: Before I took him to the villagers, I bought him a pair of shoes. It's because there's quite a difference in the fee paid to a shoeless swordsman and one with shoes.
Blind Swordsman: Do you know the difference between drinking wine and drinking water? The more wine you drink, the warmer you'll get. Water will only make you feel cold.
The Woman: Why didn't you let him know I live here?
Huang Yao-shi: You didn't ask me to.
The Woman: [sobbing] You are too honest!
Ou-yang Feng: [On Hung Chi and his wife leaving White Camel Mountain together] When I am seeing them off, my heart aches in jealousy. Once I had a chance to do the same. But somehow I passed it up.
Ou-yang Feng: [to a potential customer] For all these years, there must be some people who you don't want to mention or you don't want to meet again. Because they did something really awful to you. Maybe you want to kill them. But you dare not. In fact, it's really easy to kill a person. Not difficult at all. I have a friend who is great at solving problems. But he has been a little short lately. If you can give him some money, he must be able to solve your problems. Indeed you can think my proposal over. But be quick!
Blind Swordsman: My doctor said I will go completely blind when I reach 30.
Ou-yang Feng: So how old are you?
Blind Swordsman: Almost 30.
Ou-yang Feng: [smiling sarcastically at Hing Chi] Was it worth it to lose a finger for a basket of eggs?
Ou-yang Feng: [to Young Girl] You can sell yourself for a better price than a mule. You understand what I am saying?
Ou-yang Feng: Where are you going?
Hung Chi: Places I've never been. With luck, I'll be famous. If one day you hear of a nine-fingered hero, that'll be me.
Hung Chi: I've known how to protect myself since young, the best way to avoid being rejected is to reject others first.
Ou-yang Feng: I heard someone said, when you cannot have something, the only thing you can do is to not forget.
Hung Chi: [to Ou-yang Feng] If I get killed in a fight, don't take people to see my body. I don't want to be talking corpse!
Huang Yao-shi: If you have a sister looking just like you, I will take her as my wife.
Mu-rong Yin: Good. But if you back out, I will kill you.
Blind Swordsman: Looks as if I shouldn't have come for this duel at all. Is it all right just to leave a hand?
Duellist: By 'leave', it must be a life!
Blind Swordsman: [after killing the duellist at one stroke] When I asked, becuase I knew you were no match to me. But you insisted on giving me your life.
