Korosensei said:


What does it feel like, having your own death right before your eyes? That grand kaleidoscope glimpsed in the moments before death... What could be flashing through that perfect mind of yours?

Korosensei said:


To kill is an action which overflows in everyday life. In actuality the more you try to be accepted, the more you kill your unrestrained self.

Korosensei said:


I study too, you know. How could I teach anyone if I didn't grow and learn day by day. Now let's get rid of this dangerous cloth. Experiencing my Absolute Defense Form over summer vacation taught me yet another skill: compressing not my whole body, but a portion of my tentacles to release a burst of energy. Remember this Itona, I say assassination is education. The assassination classrooms teacher will get stronger every time he teaches!

Korosensei said:


Take advantage of what you have, while you have it.

Korosensei said:


As you go through life, the might current of society is bound to get in your way and there will certainly be times that things don't go as you'd hoped. When this happens, don't look to society for a cause. Do not renounce society. Frankly, you'd be wasting your time. Instead just say, "That's life!" and muddle your way through with frustration. Once you're past it, consider: If society's swift current is tossing you around, how should you be swimming there in it's midst. You should have learned how, here in the E class, in this assassination classroom. You don't always have to stand and face it head-on. You can run and you can hide. If it's not against the rules, you can try a sneak attack. You can use unconventional weapons. Stay determined - not impatient nor discouraged - and with repeated trial and error, you're bound to reach a splendid outcome eventually.

Korosensei said:


The past you've lost will never come back. I myself have made so many mistakes... But we can learn from the past so we don't repeat it.

Korosensei said:


If I wasn't prepared to be flexible as the situations demands, I wouldn't have become a teacher.

Korosensei said:


The world will always be filled with injustice. If you have time to give up or hold a grudge against that injustice, then use that time to enjoy battling those injustices instead.

Korosensei said:


You may have grown too strong. Drunk on your own power, you forgot to put yourself in the shoes of someone weaker than you. That makes you no different than the student in the main campus.

Korosensei said:


Broadly speaking, there are two reasons a person feels the desire to teach something: Either he wants to pass on his successes or he wants to pass on his failures.

Korosensei said:


All of the connections we encounter in this world serve as teachers who nurture us.

Korosensei said:


Those who can't do what they have to when the time comes for action will find their presence fading in our classroom. An assassin who neglects to sharpen his blade is no assassin at all. He's just a boastful brat swinging around a rusty sword.

Korosensei said:


The difference between the novice and the master is that the master has failed more times than the novice has tried.

Korosensei said:


Honestly, there isn't much meaning to the splendid names given to you by your parents. What does have meaning, is what the person behind that name does during their actual lifetime. The name doesn't make the person. The name simply remains gently within the footprint left on the path a person walks.

Korosensei said:


Exams are an opportunity to teach correctly the meaning of winning and losing, of strong and weak. Students soak up heaping helpings of successes and setbacks! Take in now what it means to win, what it means to lose!

Korosensei said:


Tests are a good thing. The knowledge gained from a night of cramming will be all but forgotten once you hit adulthood. And that's fine. The experience you gain through competition, having sharpened your skills and broadened your minds all under the same set of rules? That's the real treasure.

Korosensei said:


It’s dangerous for them to grow up without experiencing true competition. Because they’ll keep whining, even without taking the matter seriously. For those with a high level of aptitude... The sooner they know the frustration of defeat, the greater their growth will be.

Korosensei said:


Please remember that there are times to take someone's hand and lead them along... But also times when you must be stern and let them fend for themselves.
