    • Yuzan Morikawa (to Conan Edogawa):

    Money leads people astray, both those who have it and those who don't. Those who have money build walls to protect it, while those who don't easily break laws and hurt people to get their hands on it.
    (金は人を惑わせる、持つ者も持たざる者もな。持つ者はそれを守らんと壁を作り、持たざる者はそれを無理にでも得ようと、いとも簡単に法を破り、人を傷つける。)
