Quotes from "Mobile Suit Gundam 00"

People can only truly understand things that they've actually experienced.

Whether you like it or not, time will leave you behind. In the same way that your beauty will wither away with time. In order to cling to the glorious past, people achieve peace by hurting others. People know it isn't the right thing to do, but they're unable to stop any of it. Wouldn't you agree that someone needs to teach them a lesson?

No one knows what’s going to happen to the world. But I believe we have the ability to deal with that. Although we cannot change the past - we can change the future. We can change it into the world we desire.

Reflecting upon death, one appreciates life. If that’s the case, does it take a mistake for people to choose the right path? Behold the brilliance of the heavens burdened with sin.

Even since the industrial revolution, humanity has used its technological knowledge for conflict and repeatedly risked its own extinction. Though great leaders appeared at times, they’d reach the end of their lives in a few decades... and the world would return to a state of chaos.

Everyone has to decide for themselves which choice to make. If you fight, people may die... but if you don't fight, people may still die. There's no "right" or "wrong" choice to make.

The meaning to our existence... is to live. To remember those who have died and face the world. God doesn't exist. I will. Through my own will.

Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding.

While we are talking of peace, people are dying.

You people, are you satisfied with this kind of world? I'm not.

I wanted to know why was the world so twisted? Where did this twistedness come from? How can people be so wicked without needing to be? And why don't they realize their wickedness? Why are there things that bring chaos to so many lives? Why do people rule and let themselves be ruled? And why do they hurt each other? And why despite all that do people still want to live their lives? I was just looking for answers. I thought that if I met with you, you'd give me those answers... because you're looking for the same thing along a different path from mine - from the path where people can understand each other.

The only thing you can change about the past is how you feel about it in the present.
