The Best Quotes From Fate Stay Night:
1. Archer Quotes
“The wish of wanting everyone to be happy is merely a fairy tale!” – Archer
“There are always fewer seats called “happiness” than there are people to fill them.” – Archer
“An ideal is only an ideal after all. As long as you embrace that ideal, the friction with reality will continue to increase. So you will someday face reality and will have to pay the price for your compromises.” – Archer
“It is at the moment of death that humanity has value.” – Archer
“Do not think about other things, there is only one thing you can do. So master that one thing. Do not forget. What you must imagine is always that you, yourself, are the strongest. You do not need outside enemies. For you, the one you have to fight is none other than your own image.” – Archer
“Brilliant people shine more brightly than ordinary ones. They never regret or agonize over what they’ve done.” – Archer
“I killed many people to act on my ideal. I killed so many that I stopped caring about innocent people and I saved a thousand times as many as I killed.” – Archer
“There is nothing at the end of helping people. It is a false life that can save neither yourself nor others.” – Archer
“Fighting for others, but not yourself, is nothing but hypocrisy.” – Archer
“And now I have my answer. Don’t worry, Tohsaka. I’ll try my best from now on, too.” – Archer
“Is it really worth saving this sad and ugly world, when there is nothing left after it is saved? With all this death, cruelty and sadness, do you still want to become a hero?” – Archer
“You can certainly fulfill your wish to “save someone”. But a wish for you to save yourself, does not exist. You will embrace a borrowed ideal that is not yours, and you will probably pursue it until you die.” – Archer
“You are a hateful woman. You oppose me to the very end. But I shall forgive you.” – Archer
“I am the bone of my sword. Steel is my body, and fire is my blood. I have created over a thousand blades. Unknown to death. Nor known to life. Have withstood pain to create many weapons. Yet, those hands will never hold anything. So as I pray, ‘Unlimited Blade Works’.” – Archer
“Know that the only people you can save like that are the ones that survive.” – Archer
“Eternity is instantaneous, and an instant is eternal.” – Archer
2. Shirou Emiya Quotes
“Someday my memories will fade… and her voice, her actions, I might forget them as well. But I will always remember that I loved Saber.” – Shirou Emiya
“Even if I could redo the past, I must not take back what has already happened, because if I do that, everything would be a lie: those tears, that pain, those memories, that cold reality that hurts my heart, all of it. There were people who died in pain. There were people who risked their lives to save others. There were people who mourned for the deaths. But then, if everything were taken back and it did not happen, where would all of those go? The dead people would not come back. Reality cannot be overturned.” – Shirou Emiya
“Blue sky is in the distance. It feels so close. Yet, I cannot grab it even if I reach out with my hands. I looked up at the stars before. The stars that I cannot reach and the wishes that will not be granted. There is nothing we have been able to leave behind for each other. Therefore, traces and memories will disappear someday. But still… Even if it will not reach her, there should be something that will remain in our hearts. There is nothing that remains in our hands, but we lived the same time and looked up at the same things. If I can remember that, I can believe that we can be together even if we are far apart.” – Shirou Emiya
“I can’t stray from my path for those I’ve left behind.” – Shirou Emiya
“Even If I’m a fraud, I know my dream isn’t wrong.” – Shirou Emiya
“It makes me mad when people try so hard to become victims. Is it greedy of me to wish for an outcome where everyone gets saved and is happy – and can share a laugh about it in the end?” – Shirou Emiya
“Even if my life is full of hypocrisy, I’ll keep on striving to be a hero of justice.” – Shirou Emiya
“If you walk down the path that you believe is right, you cannot be wrong.” – Shirou Emiya
“Helping other people is our responsibility. And no matter what I’m gonna live by that.” – Shirou Emiya
“If it ends up helping someone else out, who cares!” – Shirou Emiya
“When something terrible happens, it’s true you can only save a handful of people, no matter how hard you try. But that doesn’t make it okay!” – Shirou Emiya
“That is why I will keep running for now. If I aim for the distance, there should come a day when I would be able to reach out to what I have been aiming for.” – Shirou Emiya
“If you have a wish, don’t go back to the past and redo everything. If you want to change yourself, don’t change the past, but change who you are now!” – Shirou Emiya
“I don’t have any wishes that won’t come true or that are impossible. Because if it’s a dream I can’t reach by myself, I won’t even dream it in the first place.” – Shirou Emiya
“That’s right. I don’t create swords. I create a world that contains infinite swords. This is the only magic allowed for me. There’s no need to be surprised. These are all imitations. As you say, these are all trifling swords. But there is no rule that says an imitation cannot defeat the original. If you say you are the original, I will surpass every one of your weapons and destroy your existence.” – Shirou Emiya
“People who can put on a serious face while joking are the scariest.” – Shirou Emiya
“Yes, the desire to protect something… is, at the same time, none other than the wish for something to violate it.” – Shirou Emiya
“I don’t mind losing to someone, but I won’t be beaten by myself.” – Shirou Emiya
“My goal is so far away that I’m not even on the starting line yet.” – Shirou Emiya
“I don’t want to regret anything. I want to make all the tragedies that happened into meaningful things by believing that my path is right.” – Shirou Emiya
“What’s past is past. I cannot redo it, nor go back to it. I have escaped from that scene and still continue to live. All I can do is look forward.” – Shirou Emiya
“I can’t lose against myself. There’s no element that would make me lose if our powers are equal. To admit defeat against such an enemy is to declare that I’m wrong.” – Shirou Emiya
3. Gilgamesh Quotes
“The things we can’t obtain are the most beautiful ones.” – Gilgamesh
“”Hero of Justice? A world where no one is hurt?” Don’t be absurd. “Humanity” is the name for an animal that cannot find joy in life without sacrifice. The pretty lie that is “equality” is nonsense spouted by weaklings who cannot look upon the darkness. Nothing but an excuse to cover up life’s ugliness.” – Gilgamesh
“If a couple curses stopped me, what kind of hero would I be?!” – Gilgamesh
4. Rin Tohsaka Quotes
“If you don’t like pain, stand still. I’ll finish you off nice and quickly!” – Rin Tohsaka
“The world is just another word for the things you value around you, right? That’s something I’ve had since I was born. If you tell me to rule such a world, I already rule it.” – Rin Tohsaka
“If you’ve got no way to fight, you’re just getting in the way! If you’re killed without accomplishing anything then you’ll have died for nothing!” – Rin Tohsaka
“Those who aim further for other’s sake. Those who think of others before themselves. …And those who hate themselves more than anyone. These are the qualities of a Magus. This is a contradiction you can only have if you are born broken.” – Rin Tohsaka

7. Kirei Kotomine Quotes
“I want to know if it is a crime to live as you are, when you are different from others.” – Kirei Kotomine
“A certain scripture mentions that humans are superior to angels. Why? Because there are people who know of evil, but do not become evil. It’s different from angels, who know only of good since birth. Humans have evil, but can live as good, so they are superior to angels, who know only good.” – Kirei Kotomine
“If there is a pure wish in this world, it must be the desire to be born.” – Kirei Kotomine
“There are worthless things, but there are no meaningless things.” – Kirei Kotomine
“People cannot change the past. All we can do, is accept our own actions. If you still wish to be burdened by your sins, let it show in your future actions. It is your choice how to perceive something that has already happened.” – Kirei Kotomine
“I envy you people. What I sought, but could not obtain. What I obtained, but could not obtain. Many things slipped out between my fingers, no matter what commandment I used.” – Kirei Kotomine
“It is the path you have chosen. Take pride in it.” – Kirei Kotomine
“It is a simple story. There is nothing that brings me happiness. It does not matter, whether it be believing in people or having people believe in me. What other people called happiness did not bring me any joy.” – Kirei Kotomine
