Bungo Stray Dogs Quotes
"We lost our homeland and our honor. We became ghosts wandering a wasteland in search of enemies to fight. (Oda asks: Are you sure you couldn't change your way of life?) I swore to my men that I would die a soldier. I cannot become anything else. No... Perhaps I could have. I may have been able to reshape my way of life and become someone who wasn't a soldier. Just like how you stopped killing."
(To Dazai) "Listen. You told me that you might find a reason to live if you lived in a world of violence and bloodshed. You won't find it. You must know that already. Whether you're on the side who kills people or the side who saves people, nothing beyond what you would expect will appear. Nothing in this world can fill that lonely hole you have. You will wander the darkness for eternity. (...) Be on the side that saves people. If both sides are the same, become a good man. Save the weak, and protect the orphans. Neither good nor evil means much to you, I know... but that'd make you at least a little bit better. (...) Of course, I know. I know better than anyone. Because... I am your friend."
There wouldn't have been a bright future if I had died or I had been the only one to survive.
