"I traveled across the world. From the ruins of New York, to the fusion mills of China, right across the radiation pits of Europe. And everywhere I went I saw people just like you, living as slaves! But if Martha Jones became a legend then that's wrong, because my name isn't important. There's someone else. The man who sent me out there, the man who told me to walk the Earth. And his name is The Doctor. He has saved your lives so many times and you never even knew he was there. He never stops. He never stays. He never asks to be thanked. But I've seen him, I know him... I love him... And I know what he can do."
Martha Jones, Doctor Who "Last of the Time Lords"

[A deathly ill Davros is trying to goad the Doctor into wiping out the Daleks]
Davros: Why do you hesitate? No one would know... Is this the conscience of the Doctor, or his shame? The shame that brought you here.
The Doctor: There's no such thing as the Doctor. I'm just a bloke in a box, telling stories. And I didn't come here because I'm ashamed. A bit of shame never hurt anyone. I came because you're sick and you asked. And because sometimes, on a good day, if I try very hard, I'm not some old Time Lord who ran away. I'm the Doctor.
Davros: Compassion then.
The Doctor: Always.
Davros: It grows strong and fierce in you, like a cancer.
The Doctor: I hope so.
Davros: It will kill you in the end.
The Doctor: I wouldn't die of anything else.

Young Davros: Which side are you on? Are you the enemy?

"You don't need a reason to help people."
Zidane Tribal, Final Fantasy IX

Roxas: This could have been the other way around. But it really has to be you.
Sora: Huh?
Roxas: There are so many hearts connected to yours. You're me, so you can feel what I felt.
Sora: No. Roxas, you're you. We're not the same. That's what I wanted to tell you. That you deserve, just as much as I do, to be your own person.
Roxas: *taken aback, smiles* Sora, see? That's why it has to be you.

Luke: My father abandoned you when you needed him most - I won't do the same!
Nolan Gillmunn: You stubborn fool, can't you see? When your father fought here, he focused only on the strategies and logistics of the war, ignoring the human costs. You, on the other hand... despite our anger and hostility toward you, you made our cause your own. You've fought alongside us - as one of us. You haven't repeated Anakin's sins. You've redeemed them."

"Though we gather here today, bound together in sorrow and loss, we share a precious gift. We are all of us privileged to live a life that has been touched by Superman. The Man of Steel possessed many extraordinary gifts, and he shared them with us freely. None of these gifts were more remarkable than his ability to discern what needed to be done and in his unfailing courage in doing it, whatever the personal cost. Let us all strive to accept his gift and pass it along as an ongoing tribute to Kal-El of Krypton, the immigrant from the stars who taught us all how to be heroes."

"Up here, where the air is razor-thin. Where men believe themselves invisible. I take a last, sharp, frozen breath — and hold it. The seas are sapphires, the fields & forests emeralds. The Himalayas gleam like diamonds. The strange blue world to which my father sent me. If you knew how you are loved, not one of you would raise a hand in rage again."
Superman, JLA/Hitman #2

Ravager: H-Helping people?
Nightwing: That's right Rose, helping people.
Nightwing talking to Rose Wilson, the second Ravager, about Superman

"It is true that being able to use an Oversoul at your age is quite remarkable, Master Hana. But, that is not what real strength is. Real strength comes from sympathising with your enemies. Sympathise with your enemies so that you can understand them; that will allow you to overcome anyone. That is the secret of your father's incredible power."
Amidamaru, Shaman King: Flowers

Finn: Ahhhhh! Everybody wants different things! And some of them want stuff that's exactly the thing the others don't want.
Jake: Whoa, dude. Hold on. So this guy wants this and that guy wants that, but man. What do you want?
[Finn flashbacks to the time his adoptive dog parents found and helped him as a baby]
Finn: Hmm. Jake. What I want is to help anyone in need, so everyone is happy!
Jake: Wow, that’s pretty corny man, but let’s do it dude! Wooohoo!

'I saved a lot of monsters and improved their livelihoods. The question is whether or not I can save you as well Flowey."

"There are a lot of people that I find it difficult to like. I don’t like what they do to me. I don’t like what they say about me and other people. I don’t like their attitudes. I don’t like some of the things they’re doing. I don’t like them. But Jesus says love them. And love is greater than like. Love is understanding, redemptive goodwill for all men, so that you love everybody, because God loves them. You refuse to do anything that will defeat an individual, because you have agape in your soul."
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Serial killer/Disguised Vermouth: Why did you save me?

I don't know if You can hear me,
Or if You're even there.
I don't know if You would listen
To a gypsy's prayer.
Yes, I know I'm just an outcast,
I shouldn't speak to You.
Still, I see Your face and wonder...
Were You once an outcast, too?

God help the outcasts,
Hungry from birth,
Show them the mercy
They don't find on earth,
God help my people,
We look to You, still.
God help the outcasts,
Or nobody will.

"You are protected, in short, by your ability to love! The only protection that can possibly work against the lure of power like Voldemort's! In spite of all the temptation you have endured, all the suffering, you remain pure of heart, just as pure as you were at the age of eleven, when you stared into a mirror that reflected your heart's desire, and it showed you only the way to thwart Lord Voldemort, and not immortality or riches."

“But because I am nothing, I want to be something. A good friend, a good student, a good sister, all of those and more. Being nothing doesn’t make you nothing, it just means you haven’t figured out the thing you want to be yet.”

And what’s more, I’m so grateful to you for helping the children in your life to know that you’ll do everything you can to keep them safe. And to help them express their feelings in ways that will bring healing in many different neighborhoods. Its such a good feeling to know that we’re lifelong friends."

Supergirl: You won't believe this, but I'm sorry. On my honor, I am. And if you will swear to stop this battle, I will help you search for your child. That is my promise.
Satan Girl: Ohhhhh, don't you wish, Lightsister. I can find my child. After our war, I will find him. Or her. There is nothing left to us now, except the fight. You would not tolerate my existence, nor I yours. I am not capable of your empathy, of your petty virtue. You are not capable of my ruthlessness and power. Come, sister. Let us destroy each other.

Darkseid: There must be a part of you that's disgusted by how easily your people fell to me.
