  • Commoner  

    Man just wants to forget the bad stuff, and believe in the made-up good stuff. It's easier that way.

  • Priest  

    If men don't trust each other, this earth might as well be hell.

  • Commoner  

    Right. The world's a kind of hell.

  • Priest  

    No! I don't want to believe that!

  • Commoner  

    No one will hear you, no matter how loud you shout. Just think. Which one of these stories do you believe?

  • Woodcutter  

    None makes any sense.

  • Commoner  

    Don't worry about it. It isn't as if men were reasonable.

  • Commoner  

    It's human to lie. Most of the time we can't even be honest with ourselves.

  • Priest  

    I don't want to hear it. No more horror stories.

  • Commoner  

    They are common stories these days. I even heard that the demon living here in Rashomon fled in fear of the ferocity of man.
