Quotes from "Mobile Suit Gundam Seed"

If you don’t do something because you think you can’t do it, you’ll never be able to do anything in the future.

There are things people can't accept, even if they do understand them.

One guy's killed for killing another and then he's killed for killing him. How is that kind of twisted thinking ever gonna bring us peace?

I'm not defined by my abilities alone.

Using a rescued civilian as a hostage? So do you still feel justified in fighting by their side with these cowards? Kira?

What the hell can you hope to protect when your feelings are the only weapons you've got?

You always seem to get in my way, Mu La Flaga. Though I imagine you'd say the same about me.

If I have the power to make a difference, I should put it to good use.

But your kindess doesn't come from being a Coordinator... it's because of who you are Mr. Yamato

I can't exactly fight a war with a big smile on my face.

Nicol was fifteen. He loved the piano and Kira just cut him down.
