"You sure can talk the talk, but you're not quite ready to
walk the walk. Time's up, it's my turn."
(To Luffy) "That is a captain's burden. Don't hesitate.
Who are we going to rely on if you falter?"
"There comes a time when a man has to stand and fight.
That time is when his friends or dreams are laughed at.
Luffy won't die... I know he'll become the Pirate King one day.
I won't let you laugh at that!
"Fear is your best friend or your worst enemy. It's like fire.
If you can control it, it can cook for you, it can heat your house.
If you can't control it, it will burn everything and destroy you." (cr: Mike Tyson)
"If an angelic being fell from the sky and tried to live in this
world of ours, I think even they would commit many wrongs."
"What you are afraid of is what is different from yourselves.
So if you become the same, it's not scary.
If you become what you are afraid of, fear will fade."
"A real rain will come and wash every inch of my suffering away...
And if the rain will never fall, then I shall make it rain."
"People live their lives bound by what they accept as correct and true.
That's how they define "reality". But what does it mean to be "correct" or "true"?
Merely vague concepts ... their "reality" may all be a mirage. Can we consider
them to simply be living in their own world, shaped by their beliefs?"
my fave ever from my hubby
"I was his enemy, yet he wept for me! I hurt him, yet he called me his friend!
He saved me! My enemy, my fellow Jinchuuriki... He suffered the same pain as me,
yet bore no ill will!"
