Attack on Titan is a great anime show and with it comes great characters and Levi Ackerman quotes. It focuses on topics like comradeship and working together, brokenness but finding importance to make yourself whole again.
Theme of the Anime
I think the main topic is personal and power struggles. This anime taught with words, Attack on Titan quotes that are worth your salt.
This anime invokes so much sadness and pain as I have discovered while watching the series.
There are funny and sweet moments, too, but I can still feel the pain and frustrations of those people caught up in the power struggles between positions of power and those who wanted to become powerful.
Who is Levi Ackerman?
One of the persons who created a long-lasting impression is Levi Ackerman. Throughout the anime seasons, I think he smiled once or twice.
He has this serious expression or emotionless expression that makes me think he had it rough during his younger years.
In the anime, he's a commander of the Survey Corps with great ability and knows when to appreciate his subordinates. His most endearing character is his freakiness with cleanliness.
Survey Corps is the team where Armin Arlert and Eren Jaeger choose after passing the training.
Nevertheless, Levi Ackerman is one great character in AOT. So, I've gathered some meaningful quotes he said in the anime adaptation.

A blunt reminder! This is so true! Levi once again manifested his practical and quick-thinking skills in the anime by giving a lesson at times of great adversity. Not all could think like him and could abide by his words. But, in the end, what Levi said is true.
"The difference between your decision and ours is experience. But you don't have to rely on that." - Levi Ackerman Quotes
Levi is surely an interesting fellow. He's telling you he's superior but in the end, he's giving you the opportunity to decide for yourself. This is one difference between Levi and all other commanders in the anime.

Attack On Titan Quotes by Levi on Pain and Suffering
"A lot of time, you're going into situation you know nothing about. So what you need is to be quick to act...and make tough decisions in worst-case scenarios." - Levi Ackerman Quotes
He is a great commander indeed! Even if it's not in an anime situation. A painful experience could only bring this kind of thinking to Levi. And, he's using his position to teach and encourage his comrades about a thing or two on suffering. The brooding commander always gives his comrades a matter of choice.
"I think the best discipline is pain." - Levi Ackerman Quotes
Levi has known tremendous pain although no one seems to know more about it. Apparently, this source is not elaborated on in the anime.
He had said this quote once or twice. This painful experience might have almost broken him once and put him through a lot of suffering. But, he picked the pieces and vowed to never repeat the same mistakes again.
Levi Ackerman's Quotes on Self-Worth
"I want to put an end that recurring nightmare, right now. There are those who would get in my way. But I'm fine playing the role of the lunatic who kills people like that. I have to be ready to rearrange some faces. Because I choose the hell of humans killing each other over the hell of being eaten." - Levi Ackerman Quotes
This quote is a double edge sword. Yes, he's referring to the actual situation as presented in the AOT series, which is Titans eating humans.
For him, he wants to stop this madness. He'd rather have people killing people because that's just what war is. Titans are monsters. The terror of being eaten is unthinkable.
As for the other edge, Levi could be telling the viewers that it's more acceptable when people criticize you for who you are.
But, when your devils (inside) eat your resolve and what you know about yourself, it's much more terrifying. Sometimes, it's really hard to wake up from a nightmare.
Attack On Titan Quotes in Choices and Trust
"The difference between your decision and ours is experience. But you don't have to rely on that. CHOOSE... Believe in yourself, or believe in the survey corps and me. I don't know and I never have but I can believe in my own abilities or the choices of the companions I trust. But no one ever knows how it will turn out. So choose for yourself, whichever decision you will regret the least." Levi Ackerman Quotes
This Levi Ackerman quote is another encouragement to stand up for yourself. Whatever choices you make, you must accept the consequences.
In this world, no person is going to blame you for the choice you do, no matter what. You choose the choice with the least regret. In the anime, Levi has shown that through his inspiring quotes and actions.
These Levi Ackerman quotes are really something to live by, even if an anime fictional character had said them. You can use them as a rule on how you create a choice in your life.
Nothing could really prevent you from doing what you believe in.
