A Boy Has The Right To Dream:

"There are endless possibilities stretched out before him. What awaits him down the path, he will then have to choose. The boy doesn't always know. At some point, the boy then becomes an adult and learns what he is able to become. Joy and sadness forever will accompany this. He is confronted with a choice. When this happens, does he bid his past farewell in his heart? Once a boy becomes an adult, he can no longer go back to being a boy. The boy is now a man. Only one thing can be said: “A boy has the right to dream.” For those endless possibilities are stretched out before him. We must always remember, all men were once boys..."
Outlaw Star, as remembered by every kid whoever watched Toonami.

Favorite Quotes From Actual Things; For Posterity:

''Once upon a time, in a land far away, there lived a nameless monster. The monster was dying to have a name. So, the monster made up his mind and set out on a journey to look for one. But the world was such a very large place, so the monster split in two, and went on separate journeys. The one who went east went to a castle to look for a nice name. He came upon a very sick boy who lived in that castle."If you give me your name, I’ll make you strong," said the monster. The boy replied, “If you can make me healthy and strong, I will give you my name." So the monster jumped right into the boy. And the boy become full of vigor. The king was overjoyed. He announced, “The prince is healthy, the prince is strong!" The monster became quite fond of the boy’s name. He was also while pleased with his royal life in the castle. So he controlled himself no matter how ravenous his appetite became. Day after day, despite his growing hunger, the monster stayed put inside the boy. But finally, the hunger just became too great… "Look at me! Look at me!" said the boy. “The monster inside of me has gotten this big!" The boy devoured the king and all his servants. Munch munch, chomp chomp, gobble gobble, gulp. The castle was lonely now with everyone gone, so the boy left on a journey. He walked and walked for days, and then one day, the boy came upon the monster who’d gone west. "I have a name!" said the boy. “And it’s such a wonderful one at that." But the monster who went west replied, “Who needs a name? I’m perfectly happy without one. After all, that’s what we are; nameless monsters." The boy ate up the monster who went west. At last he had found a name, but there was no longer anyone to call him by it.
Such a shame, because Johan, was such a wonderful name''.
A paraphrase from Monster.

"The music box is broken. Or is it? It starts to play and a haunting tune fills the air. I awake suddenly from my dream. There is no music box and yet there it is. A tiny one, nestled in my hand. And I awake from my dream again as if I were peeling an onion. It's a dream where no matter how far I go, I can never reach reality. Trapped in an endless nightmare."
Spike Spiegel (Cowboy Bebop)

"Consider this if you will. You have a very unhappy person living in a certain place. Then, he opens his eyes one day, and the whole world has completely changed. It's a beautiful world. Calling it utopia doesn't even do it justice i's just that wonderful. And this person will never be unhappy ever again. Overnight, he was snatched from the jaws of Hell and taken straight to Heaven. The thing is, this person didn't do this himself. In fact, he had absolutely no idea who was responsible for changing his world. It was a total mystery. And that's how he stayed. Never knowing who it was or how they did it. Forever."
Kyon (The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya)

"All I am anymore is a man looking for his wife and son. Anybody who gets in the way of that is going to lose."
Rick Grimes (Walking Dead)

"In the end, it was actually a pretty normal day of the club. There wasn't really anything we wanted to do. Actually, we didn't know what we should do. It was like a moratorium on life as time flew by. A life we took for granted, An ordinary life, and despite feeling dissatisfied about the overwhelming lack of things to do. You keep thinking about the next day. You keep telling yourself you still got lots of time."
Kyon (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya)

"My name is Saul Tigh. I'm an officer in the Colonial Fleet. Whatever else I am, whatever else it means, that's the man I want to be. And if I die today, that's the man I'll be."

"This is all I can do. If I... If I shoot him now, you really would die. It would be wrong to shoot him, right?"
Vash the Stampede (Trigun episode, "Diablo")

"Those who make mistakes blame themselves and close their hearts. It's impossible to fix the mistake. Men can't return to the past. That's why they drink. Lushes. Drunks. Sliding alcohol down their throats to dilute the memories that can't be forgotten. Frank Marlon, the gun smith, does nothing but drink, and he questions the glass after it's half-empty."
Vash (part of Trigun next episode monologue, "Peace Maker")

"Why, Mr. Anderson? Why do you do it? Why get up? Why keep fighting? Do you believe you're fighting for something? For more than your survival? Can you tell me what it is? Do you even know? Is it freedom? Or truth? Perhaps peace? Yes? No? Could it be for love? Illusions, Mr. Anderson. Vagaries of perception. The temporary constructs of a feeble human intellect trying desperately to justify an existence that is without meaning or purpose. And all of them as artificial as the Matrix itself!"
Agent Smith (The Matrix)

Favorite Quotes From The Internet; For Posterity:

"What a moment in video game history. You stand on a rock miles high under a gloomy sky with no way down. Nights is not there to help you this time. The only way off the rock is to take a leap of faith, and then you plummet to your doom, only to take flight for the first time as the main characters; facing your fears and brave enough to tackle the final boss alone. Awesome game."

"I really love how they used I've Got No Strings for this trailer. In Pinocchio it's just a fun and happy song in your childhood,but this trailer takes it to a whole new level of dark, demented, and creepy. It makes sense though. "

"The Sonic universe isn't subtle. If a city is submerged in water, you can't argue, "Ah, someone probably just left the sink running." No look, the giant water monster is RIGHT THERE. BOOM. Right in your face. Don't believe in ghosts? BOOM. Ghosts. Don't believe in God? BOOM. Gods. Don't believe in fairy tales? Those bastards will come to life and drag you kicking and screaming into their nightmarish book of terrors!"
Sonic Dissected - Chapter 9: Identity Crisis.

"Man this song still makes me sad even today, not in a bad way. But just the idea of the endless struggle, dying and dying over again, popping humanities to keep yourself from going hollow, fight those four giant souls and then finally the final boss. Just to find that last bonfire, not knowing if our sacrifice even accomplished anything. And then this song. This game is amazing."
'''Jacob, on the Nameless Song from Dark Souls's ending.
