The most proven Hiromu Arakawa quotes that will activate your desire to change
I draw manga, therefore I am!
To obtain something, something of equal value must be given.
Nothing's perfect, the world's not perfect.
But it's there for us, trying the best it can; that's what makes it so damn beautiful.

It's a cruel and random world, but the chaos is all so beautiful.
Humankind cannot gain something without first giving something in return.

I'm tired of this. It's like, just when I think our goal is within reach, it slips right through our fingers. It's happened time and again. Now, when we finally in our grasp, the truth slaps us in the face.
So that the new generation that will be born can enjoy happiness.

When I watch a documentary, I can't help crying and then I think to myself, "Fiction can't compete with this."
