22 Of The Best Berserk Quotes
“Among thousands of comrades and ten thousand enemies, only you… only you made me forget my dream. I see it!” – Griffith
“Judging by the way you fight, it seems you value victory more than your own life.” - Griffith
“While many can pursue their dreams in solitude, other dreams are like great storms blowing hundreds, even thousands of dreams apart in their wake. Dreams breathe life into men and can cage them in suffering. Men live and die by their dreams. But long after they have been abandoned they still smolder deep in men’s hearts. Some see nothing more than life and death. They are dead, for they have no dreams.” – Griffith
Griffith's Quotes on Friendship
“It is my perception, that a true friend never relies on another’s dream. A person with the potential to be my true friend, must be able to find his reason for life without my help. And, he would have to put his heart and soul into protecting his dream. He would never hesitate to fight for his dream, even against me. For me, a true friend is one who stands equal on those terms..” – Griffth
“A friend would not just follow another’s dream because a friend would find his own reason to live.” – Griffith
Griffith's Thoughts on Success
“I feel no responsibility to comrades who’ve lost lives under my command. Because they chose to fight in each battle... Just as I chose this. But if there is something that… I can do for them. Something I can do for the dead… Then it is to win! I must keep winning to attain my dream. The same one they clung to, and risked their lives for!! To realize my dream, I will perch on top of their corpses... It is a blood-smeared dream, after all. I don’t regret or feel guilty about it... But to risk thousands of lives while never getting myself dirty. It’s not a dream that can be so easily realized!” – Griffith
“Hate is a place, where a man who can’t stand sadness goes.” – Godo
“Whether it’s good or bad, it’s so unfortunate to wake up during a dream.” – Judeau

“No matter how strong, for a human to fight a monster means he has submerged his humanity and transformed himself into a greater monster.” – Schierke
“If you’re alone or if it’s just your life, you can use it however you please/ Wear yourself out, get cut to ribbons, doesn’t matter. But when there’s two, the blade grows heavy. Fighting like death doesn’t concern you becomes a thing of the past. It’s no longer just you. I threw away my way of life, relied on the strength of others, and somehow pushed on.” – Guts
“The reward for ambition too great… is self destruction.” – Guts

“Look, look around carefully. Strain your eyes. At the darkness around us… At the darkness… around me. You said, “anywhere but here”. This is where. Here at the border. Gathered by the winds. Those who’ve met their final destiny hanging between jealousy and regret and those who failed, swept together here. You say “It doesn’t matter where”. If you follow me, this is where you’ll go! This is your Eden! You run from it. It is no Eden. If you follow me… to this place… the entire world… is a battlefield.” – Guts
“You’re right, we are mortal and fragile. But even if we are tortured or wounded, we’ll fight to survive. You should feel the pain we feel and understand. I am the messenger that will deliver you to that pain and understanding.” – Guts
