Top 7 Anime Quotes: Reasons to Love Dazai Osamu

In honor of the third season of Bungou Stray Dogs airing, and my return from my brief hiatus, I’ve decided to analyze quotes from a fan-favorite.  The title obviously gives this away, but the character I’m referencing is Dazai Osamu.  A double suicide fanatic.

1.)

“Stop pitying yourself.  Pity yourself, and life becomes an endless nightmare.”

2.)

“Man fears death and yet, at the same time, man is drawn to death.  Death is endlessly consumed by men in cities and literature.  It is a singular event in one’s life that none may reverse.  That is what I desire.”

3.)

“Justice is a weapon.  It can be used to cause harm, but it cannot protect or save others.”

4.)

“If you place yourself somewhere close to raw emotions, where you’re exposed to violence and death, instinct and desire, you can brush against man’s true nature.  I thought that way I could find a reason to live somehow.”
