Quotes / Never Be Hurt Again

Go To

"The wailing of your soul, which could never be erased by the Gods of this world, opened up a portal to another dimension...and we promised you that we would make you into a supernatural being who would never know sorrow or despair...In exchange for just one phrase! Yes...indeed you said it! "I offer this woman for sacrifice." The life you couldn't take by your own hand, the life of the person you loved and hated the most, you gave it to us! So that you could bury your fragile human heart. So that you could transcend your very humanity!!"
Ubik, Berserk

Starlight: And just like that, my friend was gone. [Sunburst's] family recognized his magical talent and sent him off to Canterlot. I never saw him again.
Spike: W-Why not?
Starlight: BECAUSE OF HIS CUTIE MARK! He got his, and I didn't! He moved on, and I didn't! I stayed here and never made another friend because I was too afraid ANOTHER CUTIE MARK WOULD TAKE THEM AWAY TOO!
Twilight: That's ridiculous. A cutie mark can't take your friends away!
Starlight: Not everypony's lucky enough to get her cutie mark at the same time as her friends!

I thought my heart had learned its lesson
It feels so good when you start out
My head is screaming, "Get a grip, girl,
unless you're dying to cry your heart out!"
—"I Won't Say (I'm in Love)", Hercules

Dad. Kal. H'el. Siobhan. They ALL let me down. They all broke my heart. And now THIS. No more. Nobody gets away with hurting me ever again. Not THIS time!

Girls, we do
Whatever it will take
'Cause girls don't want
We don't want our hearts to break
In two
So it's better to be fake
Can't risk losing
In love again, babe
Marina & the Diamonds, "How to Be a Heartbreaker"

Don't talk of love
But I've heard the words before
It's sleeping in my memory
I won't disturb the slumber of feelings that have died
If I never loved, I never would have cried
Simon & Garfunkel, "I Am a Rock"

Steven: Where are you going?!
Lapis: As far from Earth as I can! I'm leaving! You should be used to that by now.
Steven: You don't have to run, Lapis! Just... Just stay with us!
Lapis: I don't know what I was thinking! I-I'm... I'm not like you and your friends, Steven! I can't just let go of what happened to me! I can't go through that again.
Steven: Would you rather be alone?!
Lapis: (long pause) I'm sorry.
Steven Universe, "Can't Go Back"

"Strength is justice! Strength is absolute! All is meaningless without victory! To be defeated is to lose everything! Just like then... I won't go through that ever again!"

Ozpin: Do you really think Leo was the first?! That he didn't say those exact same words to me?! ...I'm sorry, but you have to understand my behaviors are backed by experiences. I'm not saying I have reason to think you'll betray me, I'm saying I have reasons for the things I do, the secrets I keep.
RWBY, "Uncovered"

"I was scared back then, just so have everything taken from me right before my eyes. It was so painful...and sad...I was so depressed about how powerless I was...and I ran to this power. Because I never want to feel that way ever again..."
Ragna the Bloodedge, Blazblue Chrono Phantasma
