"You don't die for your friends; you live for them, because their world wouldn't be as happy without you"

~Erza Scarlet - Fairy Tail When I read this prompt this was the absolute first thing that came to mind. Of any quote from anything, this one has stuck with me the most.

Honorable Mentions

Ugh! So many good quotes! I may have broken my 5 honorable mention limit for this one! And my double dip rule...

"The world isn't as bad as you think"

~Celty Sturlson - Durarara!! In this episode, Izaya was toying with a girl, Rio, in Mikado's class, seeing what she would do if he tried to push her to commit suicide. It was a fascinating episode, and in the end, she decided to jump just to spite him, but Celty caught her. When she asked why, Celty simply replied with this quote, and it was really a moment of clarity that just kind of made me stop and think.

"Believe in the me who believes in you!"

~Kamina - Gurran Lagann At first this just seems like the sort of goofy macho thing you'd expect from Kamina, but it actually sticks with me, because sometimes it really is hard to believe in yourself, but when you can believe in someone else who believes in you, that can make all the difference!

"I'll give you half of my life if you give me half of yours!"

~Edward Elric - Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood Okay, so this one is not so much profound as just friggin adorable! I'm pretty sure I squealed when this happened! I mean, that's what love is, right?

"Kids these days think it's a competition to have to most friends. One is enough. Find someone completely unique"

~Yato - Noragami Well I think this one speaks for itself! Especially with how social media having taken over like it has, I think the term "friend" has kind of lost it's meaning. I appreciate this little wake up call, even if it makes Yato sound like an old man (which I guess he kinda is, but, you know, details).

"If you make fiction as valuable as reality, then any reality you don't need can be a delusion"

~Erika Karisawa - Durarara!! One of my favorite parts of Durarara!! was when Erika kind of lectured Masaomi on reality. I've said this before, but I just love her outlook!

"It's impossible to be entirely good to everyone or entirely bad to everyone."

~Armin Arlert - Attack on Titan I love Armin so much! He just gets me! Everything is relative, and you can't simply label things like that.
As always, hope you enjoyed! If you wanna learn more about me/ be my friend/ be tagged in these, please don't hesitate to ask! I'm nice, I swear (mostly ;p)! Or I guess you can follow my 100 Days of Anime collection, or both if you feel so inclined! Until next time!

I love Ed's and Armin's the most! 😁 all great quotes though!!
I love the fairy tail one!!! πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ‘†πŸ‘†πŸ‘†πŸ‘†
These quotes just remind me how much wisdom you can glean from anime and it's quite amazing. Kamina's quote is one I remember strongly from Gurren Lagann. The others too hold so much meaning. How can you not love anime for this?
