"You are not the heaviness sitting inside of you. You are not the battlefield where the bodies fall, and you are not the sound of cannons breaking the sky open. You are what happens after the war. The surviving. The healing. The rebuilding." - Y.Z, for the bad nights

“I wondered how many people there were in the world who suffered, and continued to suffer, because they could not break out from their own web of shyness and reserve.” - Daphne Du Maurier

“To be a man, to have been born without knowing it or wanting it, to be thrown into the ocean of existence, to be obliged to swim, to exist; to have an identity; to resist the pressure and shocks from the outside and the unforeseen and unforeseeable acts - one's own and those of others - which so often exceed one's capacities? And what is more, to endure one's own thoughts about all this: in a word, to be human.” ― Ivo Andrić

"If I opened my umbrella on a rainy day, I'd never be able to see the sky. I want to see the sky, even if it's raining" - Kagura Yaoi

"What is right? What is wrong? In this mixed up world, deciding what is right and wrong is not easy. You can't just go by somebody else's rules. If you let yourself be controlled like that, you'll just become a puppet that can't make decisions on its own. You have to live by your rules." - Gintoki Sakata

"The true evil is becoming apathetic about other people" - Shinichi Akiyama

"You feel no one understands you, because you don't want to face others!" - Miharu Shirota

"We are all alone from birth to death, and even though we can't really understand each other, we are still forced to associate all among the way. There are only two ways out: biological death or social death. The world is brimming with people observing me, no matter where I escape. And again, another day starts where I am forced to bend into a group. I am suffocating, crammed into a tiny, narrow box, our classroom, together with various people who keep attacking me." - Yukimi Mitsui

"Life is and will always be hopeless. We live our pitch-dark lives as we cling to shiny shards that appear every now and then, and then we think back atthose shards with a nostalgic smile on our face, like fools. However, I don't have a past to take refuge. I don't have a past to romanticize in my mind when I lose hope in reality. I have no other choice but to accept that life is filled with despair from bottom to top. Therefore, the only place I can escape is death." - Fumi Saito

"I did everything to suit other people, as long as I did that and acted how they wanted, not only would they not reprimand me, they'd even praise me. I even matched my likes and dislikes to their tastes. [...] I've played different versions of myself. [...] 'Be free', having been told that, I tried to change. But what was it that I liked? What did I want to do? I had always lived by playing the version of myself that pleased others and it seemes I had forgotten what I was really like. Even though I wanted to live according to my own wishes, I didn't know what they were. That's why I decided to play a character who goes along with the flow. Ironically, the thing I am sure of about myself is my ability to read other people. [...]" - Iori Nagase

"I didn't fix you, you can't make a person better, the best you can do is giving them a chance" - Rapunzel

"Back then, I was always on my own but I never felt sad or alone. Every day, there were so many things to see, to hear, to imagine. Being on my own was always such a treat. But, after I moved to Japan, everyone told me it was sad to be alone. Even though I didn't think it was, I started to feel that way too. I have a lot of fun with everyone in the Radio Research Society, but - sometimes - I worry. If I get too accustomed to being around everyone, will I start to feel afraid to be alone? That's why sometimes I feel like being alone. I want to be alone." - Chloe Morisu

"What you said was right. You did what you did in order to teach me something. Therefore, do not apologize. Thoughtlessly apologizing will only make what you have been trying to convey lose its meaning" - Murasaki Kuhouin

"Luck is an offensive, abhorrent concept. The idea that there is a force in the universe titling events in your favor or against it is ridiculous. Idiots rely on luck." - Sherlock Holmes (Elementary)

"Sometimes you just have to be brave. You have to be strong. Sometimes you just can’t give in to weak thoughts. You have to beat down those devils that get inside your head and try to make you panic. You struggle along, putting one foot a little bit ahead of the other." - James Marsden

"I don't belong to any nation, I don't belong to any religion, I don't belong to any political party. I am simply an individual, the way existence created me." - Osho

"I can't forget about my mother either. But dead people are no longer in this world, no matter how much you cry, they won't be found anyhwere. My mother is nowhere and neither are your father and your mother. The people that you and I loved are no longer around. You and I both became alone but then I met you.There'll be two of us if we're together.That's why it's not lonely anymore." - Murasaki Kuhouin

"The way I see it, we are only ourselves because we implicitly possess things such as souls, consciousnesses and personalities. Right now, we recognise Aoki's body as Nagase Iori because it's being possessed by Nagase Iori's soul, however what we call our souls and personalities are things we can neither touch nor see. Which is why we normally determine who people are by looking at their bodies, in other words - our bodies are the absolute foundation of our existences. However, if our bodies no longer define us because of, say, body-swaps, then do we still exist in this world as ourselves?" - Iori Nagase

"As long as a person looks the same, no one notices if the personaity inside has changed." - Iori Nagase

"I don't have to be perfect, I don't have to meet everybody's expectations. There are people who accept me as I am. Life isn't about doing everything right, it's about doing what you want to do. Being whom you want to be. That's what I should be focusing on. Enough, enough is enough! I am going to follow my heart. Nagase Iori is going to be Nagase Iori! Be free, be more free!" - Iori Nagase

"I realized no matter how far I run, I'm still me." - Kakeru Kurahara

"Those who die do not come back. Physical bodies, time and values can never be retrieved. My feelings of embracing the thirst for death remained firmly rooted within me, but they had fallen to the bottom of a deep, deep sleep. “Don’t wake up yet”, I would tell them every morning. There were days when I would think that living really was hard, but during those times, I would close my eyes and strongly reminisce to that instant in which my minimum and maximum intermingled. That I was going to perish in a small boat meant as a coffin, decorated with flowers. That I had cried in it about how I did not want to die. That someone had saved me. That her artificial arm had reached out to me." - Lux Sibyl

"I am not going to run away. Things I don't like will not disappear even if I run away from them. That's why I accepted her invitation" - Murasaki Kuhouin

"You're worth more than what you can give to other people. You deserve love too" - Mara

"You're right, I only like myself. So what? People are a pain in the ass. People are fucking stupid. People never act the way you expect them to. There is nothing good about them." - Kei Kunieda

"That's because I want you to understand me. In the entire world, you're the only one I want to understand me. But at the same time, you're the only one I don't want to find out about my lies. I wonder which 'me' thinks of you so deeply that you're all that I think about." - Kei Kunieda

"I fucking hate that word. It's humiliating. Losers call themselves awkward thinking they can justify their stupidity and shamelessness with a single word, going, 'Oh, but that's just who I am,' and expecting the rest of the world to pick up after them. But they sure are clever enough to babble about how shamelessly awkward they are. I'm not a shameful fuck like them!" - Kei Kunieda

"No matter how many people you lose, you have no other choice than keep on living" - Tanjiro Kamado

"I will never apologise for this heart that breaks so easily but loves so strongly." - Unknown

"I always care about myself most of the times" - Shigure Soma

"There are things I wanted, things I pictured myself. Parents who would hug me, a home I'd want to go return to. A place where everyone would smiled, a me that everyone wouldn't leave. A warm place, a warm person. They really exist." - Yuki Soma

"Instead of doing nothing and regretting it, I thought I'd rather do everything possible and then regret it. I know I have zero chances but there is nothing more frustrating than just sitting idly by." - Koyuki Ayase

"You rebel against what's pure but when you're filthy you start to long for what's pure." - Kyoko Honda

"Everyone gets creepy when there is a cute girl in front of them." - Kyou Nekozaki

"You mustn't assume that liking him gives you license to say whatever you want. You should think again if you believe that you can do whatever you want just because you like him. Don't forget that forcing your intense love on someone can burder or hurt them. Don't forget to respect their feelings and be considerate of them. Or else they might end up hating you." - Megumi Hanajima

"All I've done in my life was study, until for the first time I found it. That sparkling dream. What I desired wasn't status of knowledge. I met a star of my very own, Fate brought me to it. On that day, I was reborn as a Stage girl. But, no matter how hard I tried, I could never catch up to them. They were always running so far ahead of me. I won't let myself be buried, I will overcome them. I won't lose, I can't lose. I'll catch up, no matter what. This audition is my chance, I won't let it pass me by. Not for anything, I will seize my star with my own hands, so that my time to shine will never end." - Junna Hoshimi

"As hard as I try, I can't reach their level. I can't close that distance, no matter how hard I work. But that doesn't mean I can give up. I want to become a star. But I was given a chance, a chance to shine with my own light. To stand center stage, with the spotlight right on me. I think I might be able to. I'll become a star." - Junna Hoshimi

"I don't need the role you've given me. My path is something I will cut my way through myself! All the stages you've prepared for me, I'll cut them all short! The one who's blinded by the lights here is you, because on this stage I am the dazzling lead, Hoshimi Junna! That will be my next stage, even if it's far away, I won't give up, I'll keep reaching out to the stage where Hoshimi Junna is the lead." - Junna Hoshimi

"Even if people have stars they're destined for, I am tired of not being able to reach them, of not being enough. I will struggle and writhe until I devour the starring role." - Junna Hoshimi

"Take it with you, the time that was precious to you, the things you worked so hard to protect. Take it all with you." - Junna Hoshimi

"Life and death are a side of the same coin." - Protagonist

"Go ahead and throw away whatever you need to. Your past self, even your name. Go ahead and throw it all away. But one day, you'll wish you hadn't. Because no matter how much of the past you try to push away, it's all a part of you. Throwing something out isn't the same as starting over. There's always meaning in the pain. It'll become part of you." - Kaori Yamashiro

"Life is cruel, life is hard - obviously. Only people like you, who think life should be easy try to escape when they feel that pain. Why don't you accept it?" - Miu Amana

"In order to keep living in this world, I knew I needed to confront my past self. That past self who constantly wanted to kill herself." - Rei Nikaido

"I am okay now, because I am not alone anymore." - Rei Nikaido

"I want to become more a reliable person." - Tohru Honda

"They're small things but I am trying to get better at things I am not good at. I want to change myself that way, little by little. I hope to someday become a man who can let myself experience my feelings without being overcome by them." - Yuki Soma

"I always felt comfortable chasing after my brother and my mom [...] I just did what they told me to do. That was enough. Maybe the truth is that I don't know what I want to be. But it's okay if I am not the real me, I'll become the me I want to be." - Micchon Shikimori

"I am always doing things that make trouble for you. I never know what to do. For so many things, it's the first time for me so I don't know. So, all I can do is behave the way I know how. I don't know any other ways. This is the only way I can do it." - Kaguya Shinomiya [Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai: Tensai-tachi no Renai Zunousen]

"I am scared, that's why I ran away. As long as I don't talk to anyone else, nobody will make fun of me. As long as I'm invisible to other people, I won't be laughed at. I replaced words I couldn't say with others, I ran and ran, only to speak as little as I can, but someone was chasing after me. I was chased by my own self. Because it was me all the time, who played me as a fool, who laughed at me, who was ashamed of me." - Shino Ooshima [Shino-chan wa Jibun no Namae ga Ienai]

“We're all dying. That's what defines the condition of living." - Winston S. Churchill [The Crown]

"It would have been fine if she didn't love all of me or if she was scared of me. Being scared would've meant she was looking at the ugly part of me." - Kyo Soma

"Everyone holds both light and darkness inside themselves, but neither one represents the complete person. The heart is much more complex than that." - Shion Zaiden
