Most profound L (Lawliet) quote from Death Note?

I had a favourite quote of his...
But I can't remember.
I just remember that it was extremely profound...
I've been browsing through lots of L quotes, but mostly people only like the really funny ones, like about cake and stuff xD

Please, if you could, tell me some of the best, and most profound quotes of his?
Also...It MIGHT have been Near that said it...so Near quotes are welcome too :D

Imanza said:

My favourite quote by L would have to be this:

"There are many types of monsters that scare me: Monsters who cause trouble without showing themselves, monsters who abduct children, monsters who devour dreams, monsters who suck blood... and then, monsters who tell nothing but lies. Lying monsters are a real nuisance: They are much more cunning than others. They pose as humans even though they have no understanding of the human heart; they eat even though they've never experienced hunger; they study even though they have no interest in academics; they seek friendship even though they do not know how to love. If I were to encounter such monsters, I would likely be eaten by them... because in truth, I am that monster."- L, Death Note Rewrite

It gives us good insight as to how he thinks of himself. My favourite quote describing L though, is definitely this one:

"The century's greatest detective, advertised as solving every case imaginable. How great his burden must be, how much pain must he go through every single moment: past, present and future...a burden so great it would leave you hunched over. A bitter taste in your mouth that would leave you longing for sweets." - M, Death Note: Another Note

Ryuk- Light said he could be a God with that. Doesn't that interest you?
L- The way Light died, was that godly?

(manga)

L- This isn't divine jugdement. It's the work of some childish killer who's playing at divine retribution. That's all.

L- Risking your life and doing something that could easily rob you of your life are exact opposites.

L- No matter how gifted, you alone cannot change the world.

Near- It's not whether it's feasible or not – it's what I'm doing.

Near- You said she's smart, but it only means she got high marks, and she's actually a stupid woman.

Going from the manga... L never really gets philosophical, does he. It would entail taking all the details and generalizing about the World Truth. But L's role is more nitty-gritty - though he does cohesify details into a greater truth, he's mostly engaged with solving a case. His ideas of goodness and justice are mostly unspoken, taken for granted.
