Top 10 Manga Quotes

Since I covered a One Piece arc this week, I thought I’d give you some of the best manga quotes out there. These are just some of the ones that popped up on multiple lists I found, but they’re all good in my opinion.

I hope you enjoy them!

“Weaklings will stay weak forever. But weakness is not evil, since human beings are weak creatures to begin with. Alone, you feel nothing but insecurity; that’s why we form guilds, that’s why we have friends. We walk together in order to live a strong life. The clumsy ones will walk into more walls than the others, and it may also take them longer to get there. If you believe in tomorrow and put yourself out there, you can naturally obtain your strength. That’s how you will be able to smile and live strong.”

Makarov Dreyar (Fairy Tail)

“The true measure of a shinobi is not how he lives but how he dies. It’s not what they do in life but what they did before dying that proves their worth.”

Jiraiya (Naruto)

“I want you to be happy. I want you to laugh a lot. I don’t know what exactly I’ll be able to do for you, but I’ll always be by your side.”

Kagome (Inuyasha)

“I don’t want to conquer anything. I just think that the guy with the most freedom in this ocean is the Pirate King!”

Monkey D. Luffy (One Piece)

“I want…to change things. I want to believe that anything can be changed. The moment I met you, a new world opened up for me. You see, after wandering in the darkness for so long, a light brought me happiness. It’s all thanks to you.”

Chrono (Chrono Crusade)

“If you only face forward, there is something you will miss seeing.”

Vash the Stampede (Trigun)

“We are all like fireworks. We climb, shine, and always go our separate ways and become further apart. But even if that time comes, let’s not disappear like a firework, and continue to shine forever.”

Hitsugaya Toushiro (Bleach)

“Don’t be so quick to throw away your life. No matter how disgraceful or embarrassing it may be, you need to keep struggling to find your way out until the very end.”

Clare (Claymore)

“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)

“Even if I die, you keep living okay? Live to see the end of this world, and to see why it was born. Live to see why a weak girl like me ended up here… And the reason you and I met.”

Sachi (Sword Art Online)

 

 

Quote of the Day: A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms

Quote of the Day: A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms
I was a little dissapointed with the quotes from A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms. Usually A Song of Ice and Fire has some really good quotes, but these are just sort of good. Still kinda cool if you try and think of some of the deeper meanings to them.
“The snail may leave a trail of slime behind him, but a little slime will do a man no harm, while if you dance with dragons, you must expect to burn.”
George R.R. Martin, A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms
“A great battle is a terrible thing,” the old knight said, “but in the midst of blood and carnage, there is sometimes also beauty, beauty that could break your heart.”
George R.R. Martin, A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms
“all men are fools, and all men are knights, where women are concerned.”
George R.R. Martin, A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms

Quote of the Day: My Top 5 Marvel Cinematic Universe Quotes

So since endgame came out yesterday, I figured what better way to celebrate the final movie of the Infinity Saga than some of the best quotes throughout the 20 odd movies.

Before I post them, I am letting you know that none of these quotes are from Endgame itself. They are all from the previous movies, and are not intended to spoil anything…they are just quotes that have already been spoken. I am not choosing them because of their relevance to the movies, they’re just ones I like.

 

 You get hurt, hurt ’em back. You get killed… walk it off.

-Captain America Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)

 

” When I look around, you know what I see? Losers. I mean like, folks who have lost stuff. And we have, man, we have, all of us. Homes, and our families, normal lives. And you think life takes more than it gives, but not today. Today it’s giving us something. It is giving us a chance.

-Star Lord: Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

 

Whatever happens tomorrow you must promise me one thing. That you will stay who you are. Not a perfect soldier, but a good man.

Dr. Erskine: Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)

 

You’re missing the point! There’s no throne, there is no version of this where you come out on top. Maybe your army comes and maybe it’s too much for us but it’s all on you. Because if we can’t protect the Earth, you can be damned well sure we’ll avenge it!

Tony Stark: The Avengers (2012)

 

We are Groot.

Groot: Guardian Of The Galaxy (2014)

I’ve got three great quotes for you from the fantastic book Fire & Blood. I hope you guys enjoy.

“A ruler needs a good head and a true heart,” she famously told the king. “A cock is not essential.”
