Samurai X Quotes

 

 

Taken by slavers when he was a child, Himura Kenshin is rescued only when an encounter with bandits kills off everyone but him. He is found by a master of the Divine Justice School of Swordmanship, a school so deadly that to train in it means death for either the master or student—there can only be one master. Taken by the master, Kenshin is trained in this school, only to leave before finishing so that he may join the Meiji Restoration and help prevent further tragedies like his own. Thus is born the Battousai, the greatest strength of the Ishin Patriots, a boy of 15 who kills for the sake of building a new, better world. One night, he comes across a mysterious woman, Tomoe. He must hide with her when the revolution stumbles. They marry for appearances, but soon fall in love. Tomoe has another reason to be with Kenshin, one she regrets but cannot stop. Revenge must be satisfied, and only blood can do that.

 

The moon peers down on a diseased world… There is no cure for the disease, an entire race walks mindlessly into destruction. Not even a man of colossal power, would be able to prevent the inevitable.
Hiko Seijuro (Samurai X: Trust & Betrayal)


Murder is the only art a swordsman may practice. No ornamental words can change that. You want to protect people with murder? You’ll slaughter legions so that a few may live. Many years, long before you were born, my sword was tearing asunder the lives of men. Yes, all of those men were evil, but they were human beings first and foremost, Kenshin. The world you ardently desire to enter will not know what to do with you. It will deceive you into believing that you are saving lives even as you destroy them. You will accept these lies all the while, your hands will be stained with the worst of offenses.

It’s better that I do not know why they should die. Doing so would disrupt my concentration.
Himura Kenshin (Samurai X: Trust & Betrayal)

The moment you find the courage to give up your life for someone.. Would be the moment you understand love.
Himura Kenshin (Samurai X: Trust & Betrayal)

I can’t decide if it’s more lovely when the cherry blossom blooms or falls.
