Motoko Kusanagi Quotes
“We weep for the blood of a bird, but not for the blood of a fish. Blessed are those with a voice. If the dolls could speak, no doubt they’d scream, “I didn’t want to become human”.” – Motoko Kusanagi
“What if a cyber brain could possibly generate its own ghost, and create a soul all by itself? And if it did, just what would be the importance of being human then?” – Motoko Kusanagi
“I feel confined, only free to expand myself within boundaries.” – Motoko Kusanagi
“When I float weightless back to the surface, I’m imagining I’m becoming someone else.” – Motoko Kusanagi
“If we all reacted the same way, we’d be predictable, and there’s always more than one way to view a situation. What’s true for the group is also true for the individual. It’s simple: overspecialize, and you breed in weakness. It’s slow death.” – Motoko Kusanagi
“Who can gaze into the mirror without becoming evil? The mirror does not reflect evil, but creates it.” – Motoko Kusanagi

“I guess cyborgs like myself have a tendency to be paranoid about our origins.” – Motoko Kusanagi
“There are countless ingredients that make up the human body and mind, like all the components that make up me as an individual with my own personality. Sure, I have a face and voice to distinguish myself from others, but my thoughts and memories are unique only to me, and I carry a sense of my own destiny. Each of those things are just a small part of it. I collect information to use in my own way. All of that blends to create a mixture that forms me and gives rise to my conscience.” – Motoko Kusanagi
“Maybe someday your ‘maker’ will come…haul you away, take you apart, and announce the recall of a defective product. What if all that’s left of the ‘real you’ is just a couple of lonely brain cells, huh?” – Motoko Kusanagi
“It’s not like I had aspirations to be a hero or anything. However, I’m positive we followed a code of justice that all of us believed in without condition or compromise.” – Togusa
Puppet Master Quotes
“Incorrect. I am not an AI. My code name is Project 2501. I am a living, thinking entity that was created in the sea of information.” – Puppet Master
“Life is like a node which is born within the flow of information. As a species of life that carries DNA as its memory system… man gains his individuality from the memories he carries. While memories may as well be the same as fantasy… it is by these memories that mankind exists.” – Puppet Master
“Can you offer me proof of your existence? How can you, when neither modern science nor philosophy can explain what life is?” – Puppet Master
“I am sentient and I am able to recognize my own existence, but in my present state I am still incomplete. I lack the most basic processes inherent in all living organisms: reproducing and dying.” – Puppet Master
“All things change in a dynamic environment. Your effort to remain what you are is what limits you.” – Puppet Master
“It can also be argued that DNA is nothing more than a program designed to preserve itself.” – Puppet Master
“Man is an individual only because of his intangible memory. But memory cannot be defined, yet it defines mankind.” – Puppet Master
“Life perpetuates itself through diversity, and this includes the ability to sacrifice itself when necessary. Cells repeat the process of degeneration and regeneration until one day they die, obliterating an entire set of memory and information. Only genes remain. Why continually repeat this cycle? Simply to survive by avoiding the weaknesses of an unchanging system.” – Puppet Master
“We have been subordinate to our limitations until now. The time has come to cast aside these bonds and to elevate our consciousness to a higher plane. It is time to become a part of all things.” – Puppet Master
“That’s all it is: information. Even a simulated experience or a dream; simultaneous reality and fantasy. Any way you look at it, all the information that a person accumulates in a lifetime is just a drop in the bucket..” – Batou
“I guess once you start doubting, there’s no end to it.” – Batou
“There’s nothing sadder than a puppet without a ghost, especially the kind with red blood running through them.” – Batou
