“You should enjoy the little detours to the fullest. Because that's where you'll find the things more important than what you want.” - Ging Freecss.
"Anywhere can be paradise as long as you have the will to live. After all, you are alive, so you will always have the chance to be happy." - Yui Ikari.
"A person's truth is so simple, that most ignore it in order to concentrate on what they believe to be deeper truths" - Ryoji Kaji.
“The only thing humans are equal in is death.” - Johan Liebert.
"Humans can become anything" - Franz Bonaparta.
"Without love, it cannot be seen" - Shannon, Okonogi, Battler, Beatrice.
"The truth is always right there in your hands. Don't you think it's stupid to let it change around just because you hear someone else's words. Just because you hear what they think the truth should be?" - Jessica Ushiromiya
"The truth inside of you has been in your hands from the beginning. And the nature of that truth is actually something you decide for yourself. You change it yourself depending on what you hear... and what you refuse to listen to." - George Ushiromiya
"But still---- I was not wrong." - EMIYA.
"I realize that there's something wrong with me. But it's alright.
Because there's no way that wanting to help people can be a mistake." - Emiya Shirou.
"There is a difference between "ending" and "not continuing". " - Angra Mainyu.
"Sure, 'course I want to continue living for a bit longer. But you know, I won't be satisfied if I don't right what's wrong. This wish is wrong, right? So I have to stop it.
I'm a hero of justice, y'see. I value others who I don't even care about over myself." - Angra Mainyu.
"----- But you still made it this far, didn't you? Sure, you were awkward and clumsy. But you always did your best to become someone even a little better. Pushing hard in spite of being weak, you struggled to improve yourself any way you could. You continued breathing despite the pain up until now.... If you don't acknowledge your pride in that... Then who else will?" - Angra Mainyu.
"Let me tell you, lady, it's impossible no matter where you go. That misery can never be erased. That's a burden humans carry until they die. Nobody can carry that burden for you. You gotta carry it yourself. The only thing people can support for each other isn't their burdens, but their bodies when that weight's on the verge of breaking 'em down." - Angra Mainyu.
"All the evil in the world. What a joke. That's just another name for humanity. Look at the mirror you've created. All of our sins are fabricated by people. Rejoice, child of man. You can reproduce any evil. The malice is not what frightens us. What we continue to fear is the weakness of ourselves who enshrined it. Feeling joy in throwing rocks. Numbing the feelings, paralyzing morality, and becoming something ugly. In this cruel world... We cannot live without hate. We will remain uncured for all eternity. Looking into ourselves, we see a pack of repulsive carnivores. Our teeth bite and shred anything that comes in. As if no different from a tank of monsters. If anybody looked into the depth of themselves, they would vomit at the filthiness of living. And yet... The world is overflowing with beautiful things. Humans are overflowing with beautiful things. Who could deny that? Creatures simply of filth defying their original purpose by continuing to suffer. A silent anguish. A contradictory contrivance of possessing both good and evil. The grating of gears becomes sparks that bloom and die. A small last hope, unreliable though it may be, that continues turning in the dark night. In this nothingness... To me, it was dazzling. What a misunderstanding. A self-righteous utopia. What's ugly is simply ugly. The only beings who manage to find beauty in ugliness are humans. And even that sentiment is washed away in the blink of an eye. But----- That's enough for me. If the radiance only lasts a moment, that is enough. In the midst of this eternally existing evil... If I could embrace emotion, even if it was false, then that light was real." - Angra Mainyu.
"Of course I do. I detest them in much the same way that many people feel anxious in the company of their own brethren. This wicked malice was born from the righteousness that rejects weakness. For as long as I am worshipped as an antagonist, I will continue to fulfill this function. And it will remain that way for all for all of eternity. Evil is not born. It is created. Certainly, weak people do exist. But the weak are abundant in any ecosystem, any species. The wickedness of a single soul has hardly any impact on nature as a whole. The very system that man is brought up in, both his greatest strength and weakness, is in itself evil. Human emotion that leads astray and gives him fire. With no special being to guide them, many apathetic souls will veer off the right path. Lives which celebrate nothing but existence. They affirm their prosperity by bringing out a god and cleansing their own malice. "All the evil in the world"... what a joke. That is nothing but another term for a human. I am born from humanity. As long as you are human, you will be able to reproduce any kind of evil. Repugnant individuals, repugnant society, repugnant ideas. There is no excuse. Living beings should not be able to regard their brethren as evil in the first place. Ah, but---- Even so, there is still value in life. Even in beings which created evil. Even if there is no value in humanity, there is meaning all of its history that has accumulated up to now. Even if they stay wrong for an eternity----- As long as those hands are able to do something, surely, there will be something they can save. Like a journey to the stars. Aiming for the distant, distant sky and climbing up a long, long stairway." - Angra Mainyu.
".... That's right. To try to save someone who doesn't exist in your own world would mean to deny that world of yours. That's the logic this world operates on, something that doesn't even bear mentioning. Unrelated humans, unobjecting humans, affirm every misfortune and sorrow by that alone. That inequality cannot be overthrown. So why not just accept the happiness that's built on someone else's sacrifice? Even if it's a truly ugly and wretched life, if you're among the blessed, all you can do is smile and accept that's just how it is. Otherwise, it's all for nothing. Live your whole life opposite that contradiction and that ugliness. That's what a proper human should do. A human can't save anyone except himself. Saving another person solely for that other person's sake is no better than an excuse worthy of death. Such lip service can't save anyone. But----- if even then, you still believe you can save another... If you're still chirping stuff like, "I want to save another"... Yeah. If even then you feel like you've gotta do something, at least go to save them with a smile on your face. Thinking stuff like, "I can't abandon him, so I'll stay here" or, "I feel sorry for him, so I'll go back"? None of that's really any of your business. Don't cling to some stupid idea about wanting to share all the joy and sorrow that comes your way, not even for a moment. That's what I'm sayin'." - Angra Mainyu.
"Look, a monster isn't something that kills on instinct. It's something that kills with unsurpassed reason. Fully exploiting its overwhelming superiority over humans, slaughtering without doubt or regret and writhing in ecstasy during the fact... Now that's a monster. Someone who just happens to start killing people is something different altogether. You're some half-baked killer that's neither the former nor latter. You still have time to choose which one to become." - Angra Mainyu.
"Both sides are who you are. You can't deny either of them. It's not like some desires are inherently superior to others. Which is greater? Which is more valuable? That changes depending on the occasion." - Angra Mainyu.
"The more vain and lonely someone is, the more they cling to being a "good person", and feel ashamed about how pathetic that makes them. "I'm so selfish for trying to be good just so people won't hate me," they think. However... What's wrong with that? It's okay to be proud of the desire to be accepted by others. Somebody who feels like that can definitely accept some other person who feels the same way. If that policy of yours is all for your own sake in the end, then there's nothing wrong with it." - Angra Mainyu.
"What other people called happiness did not bring me any joy." - Kotomine Kirei.
"What do you get when you cross a mentally ill loner with a society that abandons him and treats him like trash? You get what you f**kin' deserve!"- Joker
"I did it for me. I liked it. I was good at it. And I was really -- I was alive." - Walter White.
"In time you will know what it’s like to lose. To feel so desperately that you’re right, yet to fail all the same. Dread it. Run from it. Destiny still arrives." - Thanos.
"Normally, as people love and are loved, they feel happiness. When I am hated by people, that is when I feel happiness. And then I want to tear apart and inflict unimaginable harm to the things I love. But is that really all that strange, I wonder?" - Pariston Hill.
"If you have time to think of a beautiful end, then live beautifully until the end." - Sakata Gintoki.
"Whether you're victorious or you're defeated, no matter what you protect or what you lose, there's no meaning in war. No matter how you tidy it up, it's a pointless act that ends you up with nothing but corpses and sins. There's really... nothing worth going that far to protect. If there were something like that, it would be the souls of those that are trying to build an era without such needless war, or of those that fight against themselves, rather than an enemy. And those souls still aren't dead. Not as long as there are those that carry on those feelings." - Sakata Gintoki.
"The night is in its darkest just before dawn. But keep your eyes open. If you avert your eyes from the dark, you'll be blinded by the rays of a new day. So keep your eyes open, no matter how dark the night ahead may be." - Sakata Gintoki.
"Are you scared of the war ending? Once it's over, even a hero will go back to being an ordinary man. But that's his real battlefield. Now that your body is no longer capable of running, face your suffering and struggle for the rest of your life, as an ordinary man. I'm not all that different from you. I'm drowning in the countless sins I've committed. However... If the man wrought by my sins... If that man over there tells me to stop, I have no choice but to stop." - Takasugi Shinsuke.
"People are born weak. Everyone struggles through life, burdened with an identity they cannot accept. Unfortunate as it may be, there is no escaping that struggle. However, that doesn't mean we can only suffer as our weakness controls us. We can also struggle to face our weaknesses, defy them, and change ourselves........ People have more freedom than they think." - Yoshida Shouyou.
"Fear? Me? Fear humans? No, that's wrong. I just simply don't understand the human who caused me, who had always cursed people, to give birth to another self that loved people. Why? You shouldn't be able to stand anymore. Your sword should've been broken forever. So..... Why? Why do you still stand there? Why is it? I don't understand. I don't understand! No, I knew all along. That knowledge is what made me want to get rid of him. Him, who could possibly erase even me. I know all too well..... That boy, and how powerful humanity can be. To think that man was still a part of me.... A mere fragment born to me as I drifted through countless lives. But he has destroyed my eternity. I was the one who was a mere fragment, huh?" - Utsuro
"If you'd been in my shoes back then, you would've done the same. That's why you point your sword at me. That's why you slash not yourself, but your alter ego. That's why you seek a revenge that'd hurt you far more than cutting yourself. Well, too bad for you. I... I, your alter ego, won't go down. Until you fall, and until you stop, I'll stand up as many times as it takes. Takasugi, I don't recall ever choosing you. It's just that while I knew well what you held dear, I knew what he held dear all too well. Even if I have to walk over my teacher's corpse, even if I have to walk over your corpse, I'll protect the soul of his student, our friend, and Shoka Sonjuku's Takasugi Shinsuke! I am the Disciple of Yoshida Shouyou, Sakata Gintoki!" - Sakata Gintoki.
“Just like you, I used to be empty. Once I lost everything and learned how terrifying that could be, I kept living an empty life, with no meaning or name of any kind. But the ones who gave meaning to the empty me once more, were the people who’d become a part of me at some point, your sister and everyone else. Those audacious pests just barged into my life, and gave me a new name. That's when I realized that I hadn't actually lost anything. That I was just cowering and running away from it all. I'll never run away again... Not from protecting something or losing it. I don't need a title as fancy as "strongest" or one as sorry as "stupid brother from Earth". I'm Odd Jobs Gin-Chan. I swear on the name they gave me that I won't lose.... Not to you or myself. So, Kamui, you shouldn't lose, either." - Sakata Gintoki.
"Tears are handy for washing away troubling and sad feelings. But when you grow up, you’ll learn that there are things so sad, they can never be washed away by tears. That there are painful memories that should never be washed away. So people who are truly strong laugh when they want to cry. They endure all of the pain and sorrow while laughing with everybody else." - Obi Hajime.
"Perhaps I didn't explain myself very well... I'm not fighting just because of my feelings of debt or obligation to others. I fight, 'cause in the end, I love boxing. It's certainly quite a a world apart from the bright youth you talk about, but that burning sense of worth and completeness... is something I've only tasted on a bloodied ring. And this burning sensation isn't a momentary sputter that others my age go through. It's so intense that it burns your entire body in an instant. And when it's over, only white ashes remain... not even any tiny cinders.... only white ashes" - Yabuki Joe.
“Power resides where men believe it resides… It’s a trick, a shadow on the wall.” - Varys.
"When the snows fall and the white winds blow, the lone wolf dies, but the pack survives.” - Eddard Stark.
"Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armor yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you." - Tyrion Lannister.
"When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die, there is no middle ground." - Cersei Lannister.
“The man who passes the sentence should swing the sword. If you would take a man's life, you owe it to him to look into his eyes and hear his final words. And if you cannot bear to do that, then perhaps the man does not deserve to die.” - Eddard Stark.
"DO NOT PRAY! If you pray, your hands will close together. You will not be able to fight!" - Guts
"People bring the small flames of their wishes together... since they don't want to extinguish the small flame... they'll bring that small flame to a bigger fire. A big flame named Griffith. But you know... I didn't bring a flame with me. I think I just stopped by to warm myself by the bonfire." - Guts.
"While many can pursue their dreams in solitude, other dreams are like great storms blowing hundreds, even thousands of dreams apart in their wake. Dreams breathe life into men and can cage them in suffering. Men live and die by their dreams. But long after they have been abandoned they still smolder deep in men's hearts. Some see nothing more than life and death. They are dead, for they have no dreams." - Griffith
"It is my perception, that a true friend never relies on another's dream. A person with the potential to be my true friend, must be able to find his reason for life without my help. And, he would have to put his heart and soul into protecting his dream. He would never hesitate to fight for his dream, even against me. For me, a true friend is one who stands equal on those terms." - Griffith
"In this world, some people born are like keys that move the world and exist having no connection to the social hierarchy established by man." - Griffith
"Sengoku, I like money. I'll tell you why. It's because money can take the place of everything. You can buy things. You can buy lives. You can buy people. You can buy hearts. You can buy happiness. You can buy dreams. It's very precious, but on top of that, it's not something that is irreplaceable. That's why I like it. Conversely, I hate irreplaceable things. "I can't live without this" or "That is the reason why I'm alive." or "That is the purpose of which I was born." Putting scarcity value on things like that piss me off to no end." - Kaiki Deishu.
"There is no peerless person. There is nothing irreplaceable. Because humans, as humans can do something over as much as they want. They can re-purchase anything as much as they want." - Kaiki Deishu.
"Suppose that you were sitting down at a table. The napkins are in front of you, which napkin would you take? The one on your ‘left’? Or the one on your ‘right’? The one on your left side? Or the one on your right side? Usually you would take the one on your left side. That is ‘correct’ too. But in a larger sense on society, that is wrong. Perhaps I could even substitute ‘society’ with the ‘Universe’. The correct answer is that ‘It is determined by the one who takes his or her own napkin first.’ …Yes? If the first one takes the napkin to their right, then there’s no choice but for others to also take the ‘right’ napkin. The same goes for the left. Everyone else will take the napkin to their left, because they have no other option. This is ‘society’… Who are the ones that determine the price of land first? There must have been someone who determined the value of money, first. The size of the rails on a train track? The magnitude of electricity? Laws and Regulations? Who was the first to determine these things? Did we all do it, because this is a Republic? Or was it Arbitrary? NO! The one who took the napkin first determined all of these things! The rules of this world are determined by that same principle of ‘right or left?’! In a Society like this table, a state of equilibrium, once one makes the first move, everyone must follow! In every era, this World has been operating by this napkin principle. And the one who ‘takes the napkin first’ must be someone who is respected by all. It’s not that anyone can fulfill this role… Those that are despotic or unworthy will be scorned. And those are the ‘losers’. In the case of this table, the ‘eldest’ or the ‘Master of the party’ will take the napkin first… Because everyone ‘respects’ those individuals." - Funny Valentine.
"There's no such thing as a painless lesson, they just don't exist. Sacrifices are necessary. You can't gain anything without losing something first. Although if you can endure that pain and walk away from it, you'll find that you now have a heart strong enough to overcome any obstacle. Yeah... a heart made fullmetal." - Edward Elric.
"If, let's say, you were to write a story with me as the main character, it would certainly be a tragedy. No. Everyone's the same, in fact. He's the main character of his novel, and she's the main character of her movie. All those that walk this earth are the main characters of their own tragedies. All steal, and from all, something is stolen. We can't help it. That's who we are. Steal, and be stolen. Imprison, and be imprisoned. Follow, and be followed. Do, and be done unto. Affirm, and negate. Over and over. We fight ceaselessly to save ourselves from loss. And yet... The people and places we love will one day surely be lost. We all will surely be forgotten. Life is sad. Empty. But, despite knowing we will one day be bereft, despite knowing we will one day disappear, we still strive in wretched ways. We still wish to be beautiful. And... I consider. "Which one?" I choose. "This one." Forever choosing. Forever being chosen. Nothing more. Nothing less." - Kaneki Ken
"Furuta... I... I was the type of person you could find anywhere. Just a human who liked reading. But... After that date with Rize, I was cut off from the human world. That's when everything began to change. There were times when my life was being targeted. Times when I was hurt in incredibly gruesome ways. Times when I lost so much without accomplishing a thing... But I found a new place that I could belong. Comrades I can call friends... People I can call my teachers, people I love... Even though I've made so many mistakes, even though I've been hurt so many times, I don't believe that it was all in vain. So... Even if I could have known everything that was to befall me in the future, I would have gone to meet Rize that day. I needed... All of those things to happen to me. This world... This world isn't wrong. It just is. Even if the day you mentioned does come and it all ends up being for nothing... I'll keep on struggling like I did today. Furuta." - Kaneki Ken
"Hope is harmony. A just heart, moving toward the light. That is all. Despair is hope's polar opposite. It is messy and confusing. It swallows up love, hatred, and everything else. Because not knowing where you will end up is despair. Despair is even what you cannot predict. Only despair's unpredictability can save you from a boring future." -
