“You are fighting out of obligation, not out of hatred. You will never reach me like that. Battle without hatred is like a bird without wings. You’ll never defeat anyone like that. Your powerless friends are just weights that will break your legs.” – Sosuke Aizen

 

Sosuke Aizen Quotes 1

“A victor must speak not of the current state of the world, but of how it should rightfully be.” – Sosuke Aizen

 

Sosuke Aizen Quotes 2

“We’re all the same. No one really remembers the day he was born. We all have to trust another’s word on the matter. It doesn’t matter if it’s true or not. Just having a birthday makes one happy I think.” – Sosuke Aizen

 

Sosuke Aizen Quotes 3

“There is no such thing as “truth” or “lies” in this world; there never has been. There are only plain, hard facts. And yet, all beings who exist in this world acknowledge only those “facts” that are convenient to them, and take them to be the “truth”. They do so because they know no other way of living. However, for those powerless beings who comprise the majority of this world’s population, inconvenient facts that affirm their very existence, are their only truth.” – Sosuke Aizen

 

Sosuke Aizen Quotes 4

“Admiration is the furthest thing from understanding.” – Sosuke Aizen

 

Sosuke Aizen Quotes 5

“Fear is necessary for evolution. The fear that could be destroyed at any moment.” – Sosuke Aizen

 

Sosuke Aizen Quotes 6

“Laws exist only for those who cannot live without clinging to them.” – Sosuke Aizen

 

Sosuke Aizen Quotes 7

“We think the flower on the precipice is beautiful, because our fear makes our feet stop at its edge, instead of stepping forward into the sky, like that flower.” – Sosuke Aizen

 

Sosuke Aizen Quotes 8

“I guess it’s only natural for inferior beings to ride on the coattails of their superior counterparts. If they wish to keep their lives, they have no choice but to obediently comply. It’s a never ending chain… as the ones who are burdened with that trust, in order to escape that burden, seek to find someone even greater than themselves. These greater beings then seek others even greater than themselves to shelter them. This is how Gods are born. But make no mistake. They all still abide to me. Because from this point onward, you will witness first hand, the power of the God they foolishly placed their faith in. I will become that God they have no choice but to believe in.” – Sosuke Aizen

 

Sosuke Aizen Quotes 10

“Any betrayal you can see is trivial, what is truly frightening and much more lethal, is the betrayal you cannot see.” – Sosuke Aizen

 

Sosuke Aizen Quotes 11

“Trusting someone… means relying on them and only the weak do that.” – Sosuke Aizen

 

Sosuke Aizen Quotes 12

“I never ask them to trust me at all. I told them to come with me but I never told them to trust me. And I always tell them not to trust anyone, including myself. But sadly, there are not many strong enough to do that.” – Sosuke Aizen

 

Sosuke Aizen Quotes 9

“Good evening, Espada. There has been an enemy attack. But first… Let us brew some tea.” – Sosuke Aizen

“There’s a lot of products that you can buy with money…but my love is the only limited product that only you can have.” – Kisuke Uruhara

 

Kisuke Urahara Quotes 2

“Training hard, risking your life… what’s the difference?” – Kisuke Uruhara

 

Kisuke Urahara Quotes 3

“I’m so disappointed, Ichigo, so very disappointed. Sadly, your sword exhibits only fear. When you counter, it’s because you fear being killed. When you attack, you fear killing. And when you protect someone, you fear you could let them die. At this point, the only thing your sword speaks is senseless fright, and that’s not good. What you don’t need in battle is fear. Nothing will come of it.” – Kisuke Uruhara

 

10. Riruka Dokugamine Quotes

Riruka Dokugamine Quotes 1

“If you ask anyone to name a universal rule that governs animals and humans alike, I bet you most people would answer “survival of the fittest”. There are strong people and there are weak people. At a glance, it looks like the difference is pretty clear-cut. But the truth is, there’s a lot more to it than just a simple battle of “strong” against “weak”, of kill or be killed. You must understand what I’m talking about too, right? The true meaning of “survival of the fittest” isn’t as simple as all that.” – Riruka Dokugamine

 

Riruka Dokugamine Quotes 2

“Survival of the fittest’ is just a pretty lie that they tell you. A lie to make weak people believe that if they try their best, they can come out on top. Truth is, it isn’t the weak that get eaten. It’s not about strength, it’s about numbers. The ones who stand at the top of the food chain are the brainless dolts. The loudmouths. Because there are so, so many of them. You know it’s true. Everybody does. You all just turn a blind eye and pretend not to notice.” – Riruka Dokugamine

 

11. Kurotsuchi Mayuri Quotes

Kurotsuchi Mayuri Quotes 1

“Do you know what a scientist fears most in this world above all else? It’s oblivion, my friend. A scientist measures our lives in the ways we develop and expand our knowledge through myriad variations. Nothing can take its place. It’s our very soul. I have done the worst thing one scientist can do to another: I have altered your thought process. When my drug takes effect, you will find your mind has lost the ability to think.” – Kurotsuchi Mayuri

 

Kurotsuchi Mayuri Quotes 2

“There is no such thing as perfect in this world. That may sound cliche, but it’s the truth. The average person admires perfection and seeks to obtain it. But what’s the point of achieving perfection? There is none. Nothing. Not a single thing. I spit on perfection! If something is perfect, then there is nothing left. There is no room for imagination. No place left for that person to gain additional knowledge or abilities. Do you know what that means? For scientists such as us, perfection only brings despair. It is our job to create things more wonderful than anything before them, but never to obtain perfection.” – Kurotsuchi Mayuri

 

12. Ulquiorra Cifer Quotes

Ulquiorra Cifer Quotes 3

“Kill me. Make it quick. I no longer have the strength left in me to even walk. If you do not cut me down now, then this will go unsettled for eternity.” – Ulquiorra Cifer

 

Ulquiorra Cifer Quotes 1

“You are a fool, Ichigo Kurosaki. You willingly seek to challenge an opponent so much more powerful than you that it strikes a primal fear into your being. Incomprehensible. If this is the work of the ‘heart’ that you people speak of, then it is because you possess this ‘heart’ that you humans bring hurt upon yourself, because you possess this ‘heart’ that you lose your lives.” – Ulquiorra Cifer

 

Ulquiorra Cifer Quotes 2

“If there is such a thing like happiness in this world, it should resemble the endless nothingness. Nihility is having nothing and having nothing to lose. If that isn’t happiness… then what is?” – Ulquiorra Cifer

 

13. Orihime Inoue Quotes

Orihime Inoue Quotes 1

“People are all evil. In order to falsely believe yourself to be just, you must inevitably falsely believe that someone else is more evil than you.” – Orihime Inoue

 

Orihime Inoue Quotes

“When people constantly show their affection for you, you start taking it for granted. If you don’t realize how much they care for you until they’re gone, you’ll only be left with regret and remorse.” – Orihime Inoue

 

Orihime Inoue Quotes 2

“It’s impossible to feel exactly the same as someone else… but when you both care for each other, your hearts are able to draw a little closer together. I think that’s what it means to make your hearts as one.” – Orihime Inoue

 

Orihime Inoue Quotes 3

“Kurosaki-kun… I’m weak, so it’s always like I turn back to look to you for help. But now I won’t turn back and I’ll go forward. The next time we meet I won’t look to you for help, Kurosaki-kun, I’ll be able to fight on my own.” – Orihime Inoue

 

Orihime Inoue Quotes 4

“It’s just that… It’s just that not being able to fight with everyone makes me feel lonely! But what would make me feel worse than being lonely is getting in everyone’s way… that would make me feel worse! If it means getting in the way of Kurosaki-kun and everyone… then I would rather be lonely, very lonely.” – Orihime Inoue

 

Orihime Inoue Quotes 5

“There were a lot of things I wanted to do. I wanted to become a teacher, and an astronaut, and a baker… I wanted to go to a bunch of different donut shops and ask for one of everything! And I wanted to tell the ice-cream man to give me one of everything, too! I wish I could have five different lives! Then I could have been born in five different towns, and eaten five lifetime’s worth of food, and had five different careers, and… fallen in love with the same person, five times.” – Orihime Inoue

 

14. Yatsutora Sado Quotes

Chad Quotes Bleach 2

“I can’t deny, I don’t know very much about Rukia. That’s not the point, I might not risk my life for her, but Ichigo wants to save her life and that’s all I need to know. What may seem like an unworthy cause to you is more than enough reason for me.” – Yatsutora Sado

You should only die for a guy who’d die for you! There’s nothing honorable about throwing your life away as though it’s nothing! That’s just showing off like a kid.” – Madarame Ikkaku

21. Jin Kariya Quotes

Jin Kariya Quotes 1

“Let me tell you the truth. The truth behind fighting. Fighting continues forever. After you’ve defeated one person, someone stronger appears. If you manage to defeat him, then an even stronger person comes along. If you don’t have the resolve to endure that eternal struggle, then eventually your confidence will erode. But it doesn’t end there! The battle will continue elsewhere, fought by others. It’s an endless cycle! And it doesn’t end with a person’s death. The cycle will continue! As long as people and their souls exist, there will be disputes and those disputes will lead to fights. And those fights will continue without limit, for all eternity.” – Jin Kariya

“Do you remember the first time you walked? No. So you weren’t conscious of it. Then why did you walk? Everyone was born knowing how to walk. It’s called instinct. That’s what this boy reminds me of. He knows he can achieve bankai, so he continues.” – Yoruichi Shihoin

 

Yoruichi Shihoin Quotes 4

“Think about it this way: a person picks up a sword when he’s trying to protect something. Perhaps it’s your life or your social status, maybe a reputation, a loved one, or personal beliefs. The motives may be completely different, but in the end, it’s the same desire to protect something.” – Yoruichi Shihoin
