I hate rain. Ichigo… When you are sad, the rain comes down… when you are moody, it becomes cloudy. It rains in here, too. I can’t stand it. Can you understand? How horrible it is to get rained on when you are all alone in an empty world? I’ll lend you whatever power you need! In order to prevent that from happening… I won’t let one drop of rain fall from that sky!! If you can trust me… Trust me… you are not alone in battle… Ichigo!
That’s more like it, Kurosaki! You said you came here to save that woman, I’ll explain the situation to you, since you don’t seem to get it. You’re wrong, you came here to fight! Can’t you see the path your instincts have made you take? You’re a Shinigami and I’m a Hollow, whichever side loses will be massacred. The last man standing will get to go home alive – that’s all there is to it.

You want a reason… for fighting? Why don’t you just accept it already, Ichigo?! You seek out fights. You desire power. Isn’t that right, Ichigo? Everyone who searches for power, without exception, searches for battle! Do you fight in order to become more powerful? Or do you want more power so you can fight? I can’t tell you that. The only thing I know for sure is guys like us were born this way! We were born to fight, Ichigo! Your instincts will keep leading you toward new battles. It’s the only way you have. The only way to become stronger. Fight, Ichigo! If you want the power to control your enemy, take that sword in your hand and cut him down! That’s your only option! That’s the road that continues in front of you and remains behind you! Ichigo.

How I envy the feeble and frail… If I were inept, I could simply blend in, not stand out, and get lost in the crowd… I yearned to be just another sheep… And if that was asking too much i’d settle for … walking amongst the lions.Coyote Starrk, Espada 1 (Bleach)
There is no such thing as perfect in this world. That may sound cliche, but it’s the truth. The average person admires perfection and seeks to obtain it. But what’s the point of achieving perfection? There is none. Nothing. Not a single thing. I spit on perfection! If something is perfect, then there is nothing left. There is no room for imagination. No place left for that person to gain additional knowledge or abilities. Do you know what that means? For scientists such as us, perfection only brings despair. It is our job to create things more wonderful than anything before them, but never to obtain perfection. A scientist must be a person who finds ecstasy while suffering from that antinomy. In short, the moment that foolishness left your mouth and reached my ears, you had already lost. Of course, that’s assuming you are a scientist.

I suppose it is only to be expected. You have my pity. There is no such thing as ‘truth’ or ‘lies’ in this world; there never has been. There is only plain, hard facts. And yet, all beings who exist in this world take only those ‘facts’ that are convenient to them, and take them to be the ‘truth’. They do so because they know no other way to live. However, for those powerless beings that make up the majority of this world it is those ‘facts’ that are inconvenient for their own self-affirmation that make up the real ‘truth’.Aizen Sosuke (Bleach)
