Quotes by "Emiya Shirou"

I don't mind losing to someone, but I won't be beaten by myself.

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. To continue on remembering the pain and the weight… isn't that how lost things remain? People will eventually die and death itself is sad, but pain shouldn't be the only thing that remains. A death is painful, but it also leaves behind bright memories. As I am bound by these people's deaths… As I am protected by my memories of Kiritsugu... I believe memories become constraints and change the people living now... Even if... They are memories that will eventually be forgotten.

I can't stray from my path for those I've left behind.

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.

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.

[To Gilgamesh] 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. Here I come, King of Heroes! Do you have enough swords in stock?

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

If you walk down the path that you believe is right, you cannot be wrong.

Maybe I got something wrong, but it doesn't matter because the thought of wanting to help others definitely isn't wrong.

...She's scary. People who can put on a serious face while joking are the scariest.

I'm home. What, are you greeting me in an apron? You look pretty good in it.

But that's enough. If there is overwhelming power and speed, there is no room for technique. Techniques are something humans invented to compensate for their weaknesses.

...Yes, the desire to protect something... is, at the same time, none other than the wish for something to violate it.

My goal is so far away that I'm not even on the starting line yet.

The weakness that had accepted death now became the strength of wanting to live.

People die when they are killed.
