Many quotes from the One Piece manga are often touching, memorable, and/or true to real life.
"The destiny of age and dreams of it's people; these things will not be destroyed. As long as people continue to persue the meaning of freedom, these things will never cease to be!"
"Pirates are evil? The Marines are righteous? These terms have always changed throughout the course of history! Kids who have never seen peace and kids who have never seen war have different values! Those who stand at the top determine what's wrong and right! This very place is neutral ground! Justice will prevail, you say? But of course it will! Whoever wins this war will become justice!!!"
- Don Quixote Doflamingo
"It won't matter if the user is good or evil. One thing is for certain - weapons will never bring peace to the world. Instead, they will destroy it."
"When do you think a person actually dies?
When their heart is pierced by a bullet? No.
When they succumb to an incurable disease? No.
When they drink soup made with a poisonous mushroom? NO!
...It is when a person is forgotten."
- Dr. Hiluluk
"They were a bunch of great people. If we meet again...will they let me be their friend again; I wonder?
I hope we do...I can't wait to be free, Bellemere..."
"And when I'd lost hope and my dream had ended...I realized I had friends who believed in me."
"I WANT TO LIVE!!! Take me with you to the vast ocean!!"
"If I were to die pursuing my dream...then that's that."
Saul: "It doesn't matter if it's weird. When you're in pain, just laugh."
Robin: "Laugh when you're in pain? That's silly; why?"
Saul: "Why? Because when you're happy, you laugh. So, when you laugh, you become happy. For a runt, you've gone through many painful things. You know, It's okay to laugh when you're in pain."
Crocodile: "If I do this, I can stop the rebellion", or "if I do that, I can stop the rebellion..."
Open your eyes, princess! Your zealous idealism disgusts me! Ideals can only be spoken by those powerful enough to carry them out. And that excludes you!"
Vivi: "I don't care if it disgusts you; I won't give up my ideals! You'd NEVER understand; I love this country, and I won't back down!"
"But in the darkness and storms, I found a tiny ship. That ship pushed me forward and told me, ‘Can you see those lights?’ That ship will always find its way out of the darkness; an unbelievable ship indeed…In the end it will raise its finger and say, ‘Look! There's light!’
Everyone; I’m here to say goodbye! I can’t go with you all. Thank you all for what you have done for me. Even though I still want to go with you, but right now I…I really love this country!"
"You said Ohara disappeared from the map, didn't you? Can you see any humans on that map?? You could only be so cruel because you look look at the world like that!!"
