"People believe that the reason for mastering swordsmanship is to be able to cut down one’s enemies. For myself, however I seek to master swordsmanship because through it I seek divine principle. If once I attain this, my heart will be as still water, calm and quite, like a clear mirror lucid and bright, able to cope instantly with any situation."
― Yamaoka Tesshu, Bakumatsu period samurai and founder of the Itto Shoden Muto-ryu school of swordsmanship
"The world's greatest swordsman? That's great! And it's fitting since your new boss is going to be King of the Pirates! Anything else would make me look bad!"
― Monkey D. Luffy to Roronoa Zoro (One Piece)
"There is nothing I cannot cut."
― Kamikaze/Atomic Samurai (One-Punch Man)
