"I hate not knowing things. If there are unknown elements, I cannot take responsibility for my actions."
"What about you? You said you didn't kill him, because he didn't want to die. But killing is our job. What about that contradiction?"
"I'm not sure. I'm going to ask him. Find out if he wants to be disposed of. I'll do the job if he has changed his mind."
"Oh yes... one of my friends once said, that it's good to be alive... I'm glad I met you. Goodbye."

It's sad but in society there are lots of people who judge others based on their appearance. Naturally, the enemies are those type of people. Therefore.... Put On Your Armor!! - Koibuchi Kuranosuke, Kuragehime
It's an epic line in context. A drag queen leading fujoshi to war!
"How did you kill the Phantom? (...) He was one of the best bodyguards ever, everybody knows that. Can you tell us about it?"
"I don't remember. Don't associate him with me. His life didn't have any meaning. Phones ringing, insects buzzing, he couldn't even die. Which means, he was never born in the first place.
How about lunch?"
"Sure... (is he crazy??)"
A WTF-moment of Freesia
And another one, after a politician had a speech (about the "vengeance enforcement act" which he wants to abolish, an important topic) and reporters are trying to interview him:
"What about your rumored relationship to former Pussykittengirl Yo-Ko, who hasn't had a single hit song since "Love Terrorist"?"
"Can you tell us more about that?"
"Are you still smoking?"
"Is it true that you don't like Natto-?"
"Is this another campaign tactic before next house election?"
"Have you spoken to your father lately?"
"You're good at Tetris, aren't you?"
What a friggin mess, but -sadly!- rather realistic, it's not like press would still care about topics anyways!

"Right in front of me, I saw a dandelion that had forced its way through the concrete. It was neither the season nor the place for a dandelion to bloom, and I couldn't help but stare at it. What a wonderful world!"
- What a Wonderful World (Asano Inio)
This line was just somehow poetic and beautiful, and a good reminder of how even we humans can learn from the tenacity of flowers.
EDIT: here're more from the same manga
"A dream is only a dream as long as you dream it. When you awake, all that's left is reality."
"Yes. You qualify as a human being if you can say that word regardless of your own will. In our society, you can live a comfortable life if you pretend to follow predetermined paths."

Kano of Freesia while looking at a list of available jobs:
"Tile Craftsman, Restaurant Floor Staff, Long-Distance Truck Driver, Mail Order, Salesperson, Newspaper Solicitor, Moving Services, Telephone Appointer and Security Guard.
There is plenty of jobs out there.
I shouldn't have to choose a shallow, worthless job like the Enforcement Proxy."
Enforcement Proxies have the task of taking revenge "for justice" for families of murdered persons by killing the murderers in a special type of hunt. Seemingly Kano considers that "shallow and worthless" compared to the jobs he lists in this panel. Interesting point of view he has.
From Air Gear
Thunder King: So you thing that your underling is enough for someone like me? Who do you thing you are!?
Ikki:... the emperor of the universe?
"As we struggle using our own strength to grasp for what's above us, we will eventually reach something... that's the meaning of the word 'freedom'."
"To fly... that feeling... is the most important thing. But, instead of the dark clouds that drive people from the sky, there must be a chain to keep them grounded. The time will come, for those with ability to fly away, while everyone else can only watch. Using their own wings, their own power... soaring as far as they can without aid. Beacause... beacause that is what it means to fly."
Kazu: You sold us along with the Behemoth to them, right?
Agito: Have faith in my silance, for I wilt not betray thee... as they say.
Kazu/Buccha/Onigiri: Uhn? What're you sayin'? Not just that! What language was that? Is that kind of magic used to run from the enemy? Don't try to confuse us with these spells that we don't understand!
"Winry... don't you... you helped a mother to deliver a baby... and saved both of their lives... you have given me... an arm and leg to stand up with... your hands are not for killing. They are the hands that save people's lives." Edward Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist
That was pretty epic, especially when he said she gave him an arm and leg to stand up with. This strengthened the pairing even more! Click.
Thank you for smiling. Thank you for talking to me... Thank you for being so kind. You ... taught me me so many feelings that I didn't know until now. Thank you - Kuronuma Sawako from "Kimi ni Todoke"
Such a sweet confession, that really catched my heart

@naruto-niichan: That's a really sweet quote. Now I'm even more motivated to read Kimi ni Todoke.

"You may mess up 9 times out of 10,but you will mesmerise everyone with just one single brilliant play.The people that you have mesmerised only want that much out of you." - Takeshi Tatsumi from Giant Killing
@ kakashi919: Reading your quote made me miss Giant Killing so much, and it really made me wish for a second season of the anime. *doesn’t give up hope for a second season of GK*
"It's always a lot easier to let something fall apart than it is to try to hold it together."
Yumichika Ayasegawa (Bleach)
"They say that we should love ourselves first before other people learn to love us. But it's not as easy as it seems. Sometimes, we need someone to accept us and love us first. Then, we would learn to see ourselves through that person's eyes and learn to love ourselves."
Sohma Yuki (Fruits Basket)
@destiny - I also can't wait for updates on the manga, and a second season. Hopefully they will make a second season
"God gives meat to toothless people." - B.B Project. Can't remember the guy's name
Miyamoto Musashi of VagabondQuote:
I didn't really pay much attention to this quote when I read Vagabond first. The latest chapters alltogether contain pieces like that, and I chose to not really try to understand it all during the first time reading it, because I was curious about how the plot develops first.
Now I'm partially revisiting these chapters to really understand it, and those quotes are just great. I guess there probably won't be another manga around going that deep into human psyche about ambitions and fighting.
