Top 30 Heart Touching Anime Quotes: Life lessons Posted Jul 29, 2020

It's no overstatement to say that some anime has taught me more about life than any book about life and happiness - from setting goals and expressing love to following your own path.

Some people might consider how childish is this? Yeah, because they didn't experience and feel how anime can be a big part of life. Because anime is not just for entertainment but can guide us through our life and without even realizing it we start believing in their messages.

Take, for example, Zoro from One Piece. He was ready to give up his life for his captain (Luffy)! Such a level of devotion and loyalty is hardly found in any media these days.

What I've learned is that you should always be devoted and loyal to your friends and if a situation arises where you have to sacrifice yourself - don't hesitate! And there are tons of anime characters that teach so many versatile things and life lessons. I got to learn that success comes to those who don't know when to quit!

Being a fan of anime, I’ve gathered 30+ heart touching anime quotes from some famous anime that I found most memorable and heart touching

Get the tissues ready.
