Quotes from "Gintama"

Obi Hajime said:


Tears are handy for washing away troubling and sad feelings. But when you grow up, you'll learn that there are things so sad, they can never be washed away by tears. That there are painful memories that should never be washed away. So people who are truly strong laugh when they want to cry. They endure all of the pain and sorrow while laughing with everybody else.



Trying to shoulder the burden all by yourself? Don't be a stranger. Weep and ask for help. Lean on me with your runny nose. Cry when you feel like crying. Laugh when you feel like laughing. When you're tearing up with an ugly face, I'll give you a good cry with an uglier face. When you're laughing so hard your stomach hurts, I'll laugh in a louder voice. That's how it should be. It's far better to get dirty while living true to yourself, than to throw away yourself and die a clean death.



That's the kind of people they are. Whether it was me or not doesn't make a difference. A person falling to their doom, and without a second thought they would jump in to save them. It's impossible to just sit and let it happen. Without thinking of the consequences their bodies just move. That's what kind of idiocy is gathered here. That's the Yorozuya. Even if you forget everything else, as long as you remember that much, we're good. As long as you remember that, whomever your leader is, you guys will do fine.



You STILL don't get it? When you tossed all of that away, a few important things were discarded as well. You abandoned your friends? More like you were afraid of BEING abandoned. You fight by yourself? More like you hid yourself in solitude from the beginning. You abandoned yourself? No... You just couldn't bear the pain of having a heavy load place upon you, or being a heavy load, so you ran. Like the coward you are. If you want to live your life abandoning one thing after another, that's your choice. But to try to incite your student to join you because you can't handle being alone, makes you a fool.



Everyone's carrying something that matters. You just don't realize when you're carrying it. It's only after it slips out of your hand that you realize how heavy it was in the first place. So many times I thought that I'd never carry a load like that ever again. And yet, before I realized it, I was carrying it again. I'd feel so much better if I just got rid of it. But I just can't bring myself to do it.



*To Shinpachi* When your friend is crying, cry with him. When your friend is worried, you should worry with him. And when your friend has an awkward bowel movement, then you must have an awkward bowel movement too, Shin-chan. If you are a friend, you should be able to share the other's pain, no matter what. And Shin-chan, if your friend goes down the wrong path... Then, you must stop your friend, even if it ruins your friendship. That is true samurai friendship.



Listen up, I don't care what you punks do around the universe. But with this, my sword… anywhere it can reach, is part of my country! Asses who blunder in and violate my things… whether it be a Shogun, whether it be space pirates, whether it be a meteorite - I'll destroy them!!



I'm telling you, it's just that it's soooooo lolilolilolied that it smokes. Come on, girls. One of you loan me your whistle. I'll lolly it up!

Kagura said:


You don't need a driver's license to hit and run!



I've told you, this isn't a cigarette. It's a lollipop!



But men are always boys at heart until the die.



It's often said, "People who are similar can be called friends", right? You haven't been making a good life for yourself, have you? Well, I guess I'm no better.. People don't try to make a life that they can't be proud of... They have the intention of staying on the straight path, but out of blue, they're in the dirt. But, even so, with heart and soul you try to brake through. There will be a day, that even dirt will dry and fall off. (Gintoki to Catherine "Gintama chapter 24, page 19")



The Other Side of the Other Side of the Other Side would be the Other Side.



I don't have anything anymore, but if there's something on the floor, I'll pick it up.



The zipper is a window to society.

Kagura said:


Whether doing good or evil, I will be the boss.



Idiots in their idiotic way have their own idiotic worries.



The country? the skies? You can have them. I'm busy just protecting what's right in front of me. I don't know what'll happen to me in the future, but if something has fallen at my feet, then the least I can do is pick it up.



If you have time to think of a beautiful end, then live beautifully until the end.

Kagura said:


Gin-chan told me to pay people back double for revenge!
