For a pregnant woman to give birth, she's gotta feel the pain of pulling a watermelon out of her nostril. For an Artist to create a masterpiece, he's gotta feel the pain of pulling entire galaxies out of his ass.
Sometimes, it's necessary to look back at the past in order to move on to the future.
The night is in its darkest just before dawn. But keep your eyes open. If you avert your eyes from the dark, you'll be blinded by the rays of a new day. So keep your eyes open, no matter how dark the night ahead may be.
No matter whether you win or not, there's no meaning to war.
A prison, you say? You think you'll be free if you go to the world above? A girl like you can never be free no matter where you go. After all, we humans are apes put in a cage called Earth. There is no difference between the world above and the world below. The only difference is which is bigger or smaller. People who pout about how confining the cage is can never be happy. They live their lives only seeing the iron bars. A true lack of freedom is when you cage your soul.
It's quite easy for humans to become adults, but to always have a child-like heart that makes everything joyful isn't such an easy task.
Matsu, you said that people and fireworks bloom like beautiful flowers for an instant and then fade away. That may be true, but Matsu, even if it's only for a moment, I want you to bloom by my side and when you fade away... do so at my side. In return, I will... make beautiful flowers bloom by your side again and again.
There's no short-cut to becoming strong. Even if you try to look strong on the outside, that thin layer will soon fall off.
You yourself have to change first, or nothing will change for you!
Sake sure is nice. You can forget your troubles if only for a moment. You'll have to remember them tomorrow though, and they'll be even more painful than they were the night before. You can't run away from things like this. Especially from things you really want to forget.
Don't worry. When people break their old selves they embark a journey to find their new selves.
When you are down, how do you pick yourself up? People fall into two categories... depending on how they pick themselves up. The first one sees somebody who is worse off and thinks, "Hey! I am better off than that guy." And the second kind of guy sees a challenge and tries to raise himself to it.
Happiness depends on each person. If you think you're happy, then you must be happy.
Some lies are necessary for giving children dreams.
Have faith in your inspiration. Feel the imagination!
Whether I go or not, I'll die anyway. I have an organ more important than my heart. Although you can't see it, I feel it going through my head down to my feet, and I know it exists within me. It lets me stand on my feet, it lets me walk forward without trembling. If I stop here, I feel like it would break... My soul will break.
If you have faith, your dreams will surely come true.
Even if you're a main character, you can still die... I better be careful-ttebayo.
It's true that your luster may not have been as bright as gold. You only shined on occasion. You were always arguing and fighting. You have wavy hair. You were lazy. You were the king of sexual harassment. You never paid the rent. You paid your people late. Still, you were brighter than the fake glint of gold plating. When you were angry, your entire soul was enraged. When you laughed, you laughed with all your heart. Your silver was much more beautiful. There’s no such thing as parents who don’t think about their children. But there are few children who understand their parents feelings.
