"Surely all couples move forward together...tightly hand-in-hand in the beginning...but then they sway, they waver. At that time, you have to decide whether you'll let that person's hand go or if you'll try to fix your grip." - Strobe Edge (Vol. 5, Ch. 19, pg. 22)

"Drop ink on the finest snow-white paper and it will inevitably absorb into black. Its purity demands it. Tainted men have immunities. Black does not absorb black."
Shinobu Sensui (Yu Yu Hakusho )

"The depths of my soul are rooted in dark thoughts… But then, we all have darkness and light in us. If we are all light on the outside, there is nothing but darkness underneath. There comes a time when the darkness must come to light."
Shinobu Sensui (Yu Yu Hakusho )

"In this world some people born are like keys that move the world and exist having no connection to the social hierarchy established by man."

You pathetic turtles,..All hiding your heads inside of your shells because of fear. That's why you're NOTHING MORE THAN BABY TURTLES.....You can all just keep hiding in your shell and live a long life. - Lil' Gator Tower of God

That place is nothing more than a pile of garbage. No matter what's up there, that wont change. You told me that being like I am is strange, but to me you're a person who can't even find a single thing that's precious, within that pile of garbage. - Baam Tower of God

And if all of you aren't a bunch of liars, you better prepare what I want up there. (Tower of God)

I used to collect anime quotes but I haven't been watching it recently. This is my favorite quote o all time:

"If you let the fly live, the spider is going to die. You can't save both without one suffering." - Knives from Trigun

Not only does it refer to the spider and the fly, it can also refer to reality, about Humans.

"Protecting others is how we protect ourselves. " ─ Summer Wars
I was sure Kambei says something like this in Samurai 7, but this is either what I was remembering, or he says something similar.
Edit: I just watched Summer Wars again, and the character who says this says he got it from Seven Samurai. laugh

from the manga Make Me Happy, ch. 4
Hino: "How long are people allowed to chase their dreams?"
His manager: "What a funny question. The answer is obviously for as long as you live."

Ah, Olympos was a gorgeous manga and interesting themes. It had flaws, but some great quotes. That one by Ganymede is great.

“Because the world isn’t as bad as you think.” --Celty

This one doesn't seem like anything special, but... It really has an effect.

"There is no such thing as coincidence, only hitsuzen." --Ichihara Yuuko (xxxHolic)

"No matter what happens, I’ll keep on moving. Until the last breath leaves my body, I’ll keep on walking." --Allen Walker (D.Gray-Man)

"My left, I give to to the Akuma. My right, I give to the humans. Both define me. Both are equally important. So now I will answer you... Humans, as well as Akuma... I will bring them salvation!"

"We're destroyers, not saviors." --Kanda Yuu (D.Gray-Man)

"Even so, I want to be a destroyer who saves." --Allen Walker

"If I were the rain; that binds together the Earth and the sky, whom in all eternity will never mingle; Would I be able to bind two hearts together?" --Orihime Inoue (Bleach)

"Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost. That is alchemy’s first law of equivalent exchange. In those days, we really believed that to be the world’s one and only truth." --Alphonse Elric (Fullmetal Alchemist)

"There’s an easier way to make a guy you fell in love with yours. Use that magic you worked so hard for, rush in there right now and break his hands and legs so he’ll never be able to use them again. Make him totally helpless without you. Then he’ll be yours… body and soul." --Sakura Kyoko (Puella Magi Madoka Magica)

"Don’t believe in yourself! Believe in ME who believes in you!" --Kamina (Gurren Lagann)

Maybe, just maybe, there is no purpose in life. But if you linger a while longer in this world, you might discover something of value in it, like how you discovered that flower. Or, how I discovered you one fateful night.

From a flash back scene in the Naruto anime (ep 126) when Orochimaru was talking to a young Kimimaro

"Many strange incidents happen in this world. No matter how bizarre and strange things may get... As long as they aren't there or in any way involved, these incidents are simply written off as fantasies. Humans are simply the strangest creatures in this world."
-Ichihara Yuuko from xxxHOLiC

“Dreaming of death… is nothing more than proof you’re alive and just living and letting live is part of life.”

- Someone from Watashitachi no Shiawase na Jikan

So now we're collecting aphorisms from manga and anime, how nice. Here are my two cents:

Quote from Haimura Kiri
Snip snip, like butter. Snip snip, like silk.
They fell to the ground like pools of blood.
I will cut this girl's hair. By her side, I will stay.
- HIKAGI Tatsuhiko: Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge, vol. 1, ch. 2, p. 4

I liked this one for its poetic sound.

Quote from Amano Daikichi's senpai
As long as he has boobs he can touch, a man's life is nothing to fear. But it will soon become just that!!
- TANAKA Yutaka: Itoshi no Kana, vol. 3, ch. 16, p. 7

TANAKA Yutaka-sensei had a lot of great phrases but the one above caught my attention because of its wit.

Quote from Oomiya Ichigo
Life will continue, in the midst of a series of "incidents". The unseen future is frightening, but regret is a thing of the past. However, when you put yourself in the future of the past, you become so blinded that you cannot see the present.
- SATOU Nanki: Ichigo no Gakkou, vol. 1, (ch. 5,) p. 167

This manga has such great insights but only few that can be understood without knowing the context. I adore how the author worked in all these famous literary references.

Quote from Evil Eye, "Last Quarter"
Like the fading moon,
ruining the darkness,
that paleness of my lips.
Of what do I sing?
Of what do I sing?
You are my setting sun
- YAZAWA Ai: Kagen no Tsuki, vol. 1, ch. 1, p. 3

So lyrical, I wonder why they didn't make these verses into a real song.

"Stories are what death thinks he puts an end to.
He can't understand that they end in him, but they don't end with him."
- Ursula K. Le Guin, Gifts

To be savoured:
- Blood Alone by TAKANO Masayuki
- Otoyomegatari by MORI Kaoru
- Gangsta. by Kohske
- Seishun Kouryakuhon by AKIZUKI Sorata

Quote from Colonel Payne ~GUNNM: Last Order
Even slaves don't have to feel their chains while they fight.

Quote from Alita ~GUNNM: Last Order
You're Scum. And now you're dead.

and last but not least
Quote from Zazie ~GUNNM: Last Order
Guns deserve respect.

Can you tell I've been reading a lot of Last Order recently.

"If you really wish with all you have for something, go through many trials and errors and take everything to heart, it's not embarrassing to not know something. Not devoting yourself to your goal is far more shameful" Shorousa/Taikichi from "Shinobi Life"

I took it to the heart, so I guess this makes it a good one.
