"Truth is elusive: it's nowhere to be found.
Yeah, the truth can never be written down.
It's not in any magazine.
You can't see it on your TV screen.
Truth is evasive: oh, you might have the facts.
Got it straight, you think, but then it all cracks wide open.
You can search the world far and wide,
The only truth that you can ever find
Is in another, a soul that's got the same burning need
To find out what's 'neath the cover up.
The ones we'll meet without the truth aren't,
So let's get together, see what we can uncover.
One that defines your world,
Gives you truth in life.
One that excels,
A special reminder
To get your way through
This Shadow World."
—Shadow World, Opening theme to P4: The Golden
"We are living our lives
Abound with so much information
Come on, let go of the remote
Don't you know you're letting all the junk flood in?
I try to stop the flow, double clicking on the go
But it's no use; hey, I'm being consumed
Loading... Loading... Loading...
Quickly reaching maximum capacity
Warning... Warning... Warning...!
Gonna short-circuit my identity
Get up on your feet, tear down the walls
Catch a glimpse of the hollow world
Snooping 'round town will get you nowhere
You're locked up in your mind...
We're all trapped in a maze of relationships
Life goes on with or without you
I swim in the sea of the unconscious
I search for your heart, pursuing my true self"
—Pursuing My True Self, Opening theme to P4.
"What are you trying to accomplish, putting yourselves in danger like that?
Trying to see "justice" done?
Is that really justice, though?
Aren't you just doing this because you want a little spice in your boring lives?
What's the difference between that and a criminal who gets his kicks by murdering people?
You see what I'm getting at?
There's still a lot of time left. Give it some thought."
"But I never baked a cake before!"
"It's okay, neither have we!"
—Naoto and Yukiko discussing cakes.
"Distance doesn't matter to us! Even if we're separated we're still friends!"
—Yousuke Hanamura in the True Ending.
"I live for this part!"
—Kanji just before a All-Out Attack.
"I am thou, and thou art I..."
"From the sea of thy soul, I come..."
"I am the one who shed light on thy path, I am the original God..."
— Izanagi-no-Ookami's speech when being fused in New Game Plus.
