The Greatest Anime Quotes About Achieving Your Dreams And Ambitions

Achieving your dreams. Reaching your goals.

Fighting for the things you believe in and refusing to hold yourself back from what you want.

We all have dreams, regardless of how big or small they are.

This post will give you some perspective on the good (and bad) aspects of dreams, so you can learn something and leave with some inspiration when you’re done.

Let’s get started.

deerhound quotes rave master

“It doesn’t matter what you achieve in life. It’s how you live that really matters. Countless men have lost their lives in war without fulfilling their life’s ambitions. Shiba stood by his convictions, no matter how lonely he got. So I think that in the end, he must’ve been happier than anyone.” – Deerhound


Sanetoshi Watase (Mawaru Penguindrum)

Yumeko Jabami Quotes (Compulsive Gambler)

Yumeko Jabami quotes

“The only one who can decide your worth.. is you. If you want to earn something, you need to reach out for it. Pro-athletes give up their teenage years to train. Business owners put up collateral to borrow money. That’s how it always works. To make your ambitions come true, you have to take risks. The larger the ambition the greater the risk. That might involve time or enough work to affect your lifespan… So make your choice. Live in peace as a wannabe or risk losing it all to reach the very top. You’re the one who needs to decide.” – Yumeko Jabami

“When a person dies, he disappears, along with his past, current lifestyle, and his future. Many people die in missions and wars. They die easily and in surprisingly simple ways. Hayate was one of them. Those who die have goals and dreams. But everyone has something as important as those. Parents, siblings, friends, lovers… people who are important to you. They trust and help each other. The bond between the people important to you ever since birth and the string that binds them becomes thicker and stronger as time goes by… It’s beyond reason. Those bound to you by that string will do that because it is important.” – Iruka Umino

Rider Quotes (Fate Zero)

rider fate zero quotes

“A king without greed is even worse than a figurehead! Saber, you said you would become a martyr for your ideals. In life, you must have been a pure saint. A proud and noble figure, certainly. But who can truly admire the martyr’s thorny path? Who dreams of such an ending? A king… The king must be greedier than any other. He must laugh louder and rage harder. He must exemplify the extreme of all things, good and evil. That is why his retainers envy and adore him. And why the flames of aspiration, to be as the king is, can burn within his people.” – Rider


Hiroomi Nase Quotes (Beyond The Boundary)

hiroomi nase quotes

“A person can work for their ideals. But if you lose sight of those ideals, when things don’t work out as you hoped, you’ll never accomplish anything! You won’t be able to protect yourself or those dear to you.” – Hiroomi Nase


Sinbad Quotes (Magi: Adventure Of Sinbad)

sinbad quotes magi

“It’s impossible to share everything. No one can become someone else. It’s natural to envy someone who’s more wealthy or who has higher standing. That’s how conflicts begin. However, being blissfully unaware of this, relying on whatever someone provided without thinking, and only seeing things as “black” or “white” with such overly simplified thinking… Isn’t that a sin as well? People need to think for themselves. For this reason, someone “grey”, someone between “black” and “white” is essential. I will not gloss over the flaws in my ideals. It’s not possible for all of mankind to share the same kind of thoughts. However, everyone is capable of thought. Everyone can learn, share, and decide with their own strength. A world built upon an understanding of that. If this is a “dream”, if I don’t realize it, who will?” – Sinbad


Kiritsugu Emiya Quotes (Fate Zero)

Kiritsugu Emiya Quotes 6

“I was reckless when I was young. I educated myself by cursing the heartlessness of the world. The world was cruel – so I made myself more heartless and used that as a weapon, trying to follow through on my ideals.” – Kiritsugu Emiya


Dlanor A. Knox Quotes (Umineko: When They Cry)

dlanor a knox quotes

“Too much curiosity kills both dreams and hopes.” – Dlanor A. Knox


Tomomi Masaoka Quotes (Psycho Pass)

tomomi masaoka quotes

“People’s thoughts, wishes, hopes and desires… We live in a time where technology can read everything in your mind, and yet, this place teems with people who hate, lie, steal and try to harm others. If that’s not irrational, then what is it?” – Tomomi Masaoka


Tohru Honda Quotes (Fruits Basket)

tohru honda quotes

“We’re searching for a reason of existence. With our own strength, because maybe the truth is that there’s no reason for life from the very beginning. Everyone hopes and tries so hard to find a reason of existence. The reason of birth, of staying with someone, of existence, believing we have to find them all with our own hands. Like finding a place for ourselves in dreams, in jobs, in people. The reasons we conclude may be indefinite and fragile. We may lose it too, but even so, we want a reason. As long as I’m alive, I want it too. If possible, I want to find a reason of existence within a person, within someone.” – Tohru Honda
