Hide weakness in deftness. Use both darkness and light. Reveal clarity in obscurity. In surrender become strong. Those 4 moves can beat your water shedding sword. You will be killed.

===
According to the rules of the martial arts universe, it is finders, keepers.

===
I am willing to turn into a stone bridge and endure 500 years of wind and rain.

===
Drizzle's 41 stroke Water-Shedding Sword maneuver is incredibly fast. It showers the victim with a barrage slashes so they look as if they've been cut by drizzling rain.

===
Life isn't necessarily happy. Death isn't necessarily painful. That was the first time I saw wisdom.

What does "I would turn into a bridge for 500 years and endure the wind and rain mean?
-Before one of the Buddha's disciples became a monk he met a beautiful girl and fell in love with her. Buddha asked him: "How much do you love her?" And he answered he would turn into a stone bridge and endure 500 years of wind 500 years of sunlight and 500 years of rain. He only asked that the girl would walk over the bridge.

===
Four strokes of your sword are incomplete … I worry that one day you meet the real master and be cut to pieces.
===

After we part today, I will recite to prayers for you day and night, and ask Buddha to forgive you and make you awaken and let go. Let go of all the paths to dharma. Let go of all the suffering in the world. And sail across the bitter sea until you reach nirvana.

First I will take some poisonous insects and place them in your mouth. This medicine will lead them to your cheek bones where they will eat part of the bone. 3 months later the operation will be complete.

===
I am Delusion. When wisdom was 6 he listened to me read mantras. When he was 10 he went to shaolin and studied martial arts. That was 27 years ago. All of the monks in the temple said he was their number one master in both Buddhist and martial arts. Master. Before he died he said the window of opportunity has arrived. Buddha can only help those seeking enlightenment. When the window passes, the chance is lost. And if the window has not yet arrived, then the effort is wasted.

===
Strike! The window of opportunity arrived. If you can put down the sword in your hand and leave this path, I am happy to be the last person you kill.

So, you don't like the butcher Zhu. How about bamboo digger Zhou? Coolie Su? What about farmer Fang?

===
From this day forward, I am your father and the Dark Stone is your mother. I will teach you kung fu and swordplay. You've already died once. You can either join us or die again.

===
Forgive me if I'm being too direct. For women, the most important thing is to find a man.

===
The dead shall open the eyes of the living. The heart yearning for the past is unattainable. The heart yearning for the present is unattainable. The heart yearning for the future is unattainable. The future becomes the present. The present becomes the past. Seek not the heart that connects the three!

==
First, bow to heaven and earth. Second, bow to your parents. … Since all of your parents are dead, we can skip this step. Now, bow to each other. Now, together you go, into the bridal chamber

If you had 800,000 taels of silver, what would you do with it?
-If I had 800,000 taels of silver, you wouldn't be here with me.
Why?
-Because you would be afraid that I would think that you were marrying me for the money.

===
Even if you were a big bandit before, you're still my wife now.
===

So, the woman fought empty handed?
-She did that on purpose.
What was your last move … Did she take your sword like this?
-How did you know?

===

People lay out cloths to dry, not noodles.
-This time it will work. Air dried noodles don't get mushy, no matter how long you boil them.

===
Is that her?
-She can change her face, but she can't change her aura.
Aura? I only see an average housewife repairing shoes. What aura?

The Kongdong Purple and Teal swords are known for their skill, but not their character. They were master and disciple, but now they're husband and wife. What a joke. If everyone followed their path, then we would be married.

===
I really don't understand. Why would a woman, whose name make the martial world tremble, marry an ugly, poor good-for-nothing? … I followed him for three days. Every day, he's cleaning horses and cleaning up their dung. The only interesting thing he did, was to buy a whetting stone this morning.

===
The blind can see again. The deaf and hear again! And the crippled can re-grow their legs! As long as I can walk again, it's worth all of my family's wealth!

===
I've been a Dark Stone assassin for decades. Now I am old and sick. If these remains can really restore your health, Why don't I take them for myself?

Dark Stoners never fight each other.
-But it looks like we'll break the rules today.
Wheel King. If you and I fight, we don't know who the winner will be. But if the three of us fight against you, there’s no way you can win.

===
I could have killed you.
-I know.
But you didn't. Because you're no longer Drizzle.

===
I told you a long time ago, if you want to do tricks, then do tricks. If you want to practice kung fu, then practice kung fu. But you always mixed them together. It's amazing that you've lived this long.

Lei Bin! Kill Turquoise and help me finish the Wheel King! Flying Rope! Go! Your magic failed this time. None of you can beat Drizzle.

Should I kill you first? Or her?
-It's hard to say who will die first.
You call that a sword?

Most people can't survive a chest wound like this, but your internal organs are reversed. Most people's heart are on the left, but yours on the right.

===
Ah-Sheng, before you kill me, I want to ask you something. Did you ever love me?
-Not at all. I have no feelings for you at all! I don't care that you thought you killed me, but you killed my father! There is no way I can forgive you! … Go! If my father knew I killed a woman, he would never forgive me. I don't ever want to see you again. … Just go.
===
-I just need to sharpen it a bit.
Don't you think it's a bit late?
-It's not late. Not at all.

I will be. When Bodhi came to China to live in the palace, he would have been castrated. But the remains show that Bodhi was not a eunuch, but a real man.
-Why?
This is Bodhi's secret kung fu. I see. The flow goes through the main meridians of his body. He could regenerate organs, even if they have been cut off. I entered the palace when I was twelve. After fifty years, I am just a eunuch of the ninth rank. I hate eunuchs! I hate the way I talk! I hate that I can't grow mustache! I hate... I've had to hide my kung fu skills. Once I understand the secret of Bodhi's remains and restore myself, we can retire from this world. We can live freely. Just the two of us.
-You really think it will grow back? We've all been fighting over the remains, and when we get them, they turn out to be a big joke. Do you know why I killed my first husband? Because he was just like you. Impotent. No, you're not impotent. There's just nothing there.

Do you know why I am burying you under the bridge? I like you too much! This way I can see you every time I cross the bridge.

===

The 10th Yamma Palace, the Wheel King lives alone in the 10th Palace putting souls on trial and determining life spans. Dividing the rich and the poor, and sending out souls for reincarnation. Before wisdom died, he told me the reason Bodhi's remains are so renowned is because of his high level of spiritual salvation. Your heart overflows with violence. Even if you learn how he moved energy, what's the use? In this life, you will always be an eunuch. You can start over.
-Why not me? I just want to be a real man. Is that too much to ask?

===
After I die, take the money and leave the Capital. Get married and raise a family.
-Your heart will not stop beating. Come on, let's go home.
After we get home, draw up the divorce papers.
-Don't be silly. We have years ahead of us.

(This is a region 3 disc but available in Blu-Ray & region 1 DVD in Amazon.) One of those classic mythical Chinese wuxia story of greed, vengeance, assassins, love, lust and above all Zen chivalry. Enjoyed the complicated plot, twists, actions and camera works tailored to the exquisite fight scenes. ***Added "Quotes" from English Captions on 3/21/17*** From wiki: Reign of Assassins is a 2010 wuxia film directed by Su Chao-pin and co-directed by John Woo.
