Inspiring Anime Quotes
People are like dice, a certain Frenchman said that. You throw yourself in the direction of your own choosing. People are free because they can do that. Everyone’s circumstances are different, but no matter how small the choice, at the very least, you can throw yourself. It’s not chance or fate. It’s the choice you made.
Remember. You can feel it if you hold your hand against your chest. It belongs to no one. It’s our pulse, yours and mine. This is what brings us to the truth. It’s what proves that we are the very world itself. Follow your instincts. The answer is already there.(Ergo Proxy)
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.
Kurotsuchi Mayuri (Bleach)
The world’s not perfect, but it’s there for us trying the best it can. That’s what makes it so damn beautiful.
Roy Mustang (Fullmetal Alchemist)
Everything has a beginning and an end. Life is just a cycle of starts and stops. There are ends we don’t desire, but they’re inevitable, we have to face them. It’s what being human is all about.
Jet Black (Cowboy Bebop)
I always thought that life was about standing your ground, no matter how strong the current was. But going with the flow isn’t so bad after all. As long as it takes you forward.
Osaki Nana (Nana)
Everything happens for a reason. The daily tragedies and misfortunes are all meaningful events, leading toward an ideal conclusion. With that in mind, there probably isn’t really any meaningless misfortune.
Fuwa Aika (Zetsuen No Tempest)
Motivational Anime Quotes
A path is something you create as you walk it. The ground you’ve trodden hardens, and that’s what forms your path. You’re the only one who can create your own path. Walk on your own. If you haven’t given up yet, that is.
Cross Marian (D.Gray-Man)
Stand up and walk. Move on.
After all, you have perfect legs to stand on.
Edward Elric (FullMetal Alchemist)
What is important is to know fear and yet take a step forward.
Rosette Christopher (Chrono Crusade)
Let me ask you the reverse. How is it that you can give up so easily? [exaggerated sigh] I can’t understand that…attitude! “It’s bad luck! I have no choice!” People who passively accept their fate…because no one knows their future, least of all me, so I don’t dare put things off. I have to do what I can, while I can still do it, so…I’ll be kicking and screaming, ’til the very end.
Rosette Christopher (Chrono Crusade)
There are only two paths you can choose. You can sit quietly and be selected out of this world, or you can adapt and change!
Gai Tsutsugami (Guilty Crown)
If he rips my arms off, I’ll kick him to death. If he rips my legs off, I’ll bite him to death! If he rips my head off, I’ll stare him to death! And if he gouges out my eyes, I’ll curse him from beyond the grave!
Naruto (Naruto Shippuden)
Bring on the hardship. It’s preferred in a path of carnage.
Roronoa Zoro (One Piece)
I’ve set myself to become the King of the Pirates…and if I die trying…then at least I tried!
Monkey D. Luffy (One Piece)
Strength isn’t just about winning. Even if my attempts are pathetic and comical, and even if I’m covered in the mud of my defeat, if I can keep fighting and look up at the sky as I lie on the ground, that alone is proof of true strength!
