"A person's power is determined by both physical strength of body and mental force of will. And I will not lose to anyone with an IRON Will!!"
― Panther Lily (Fairy Tail)
"Even those countries on the verge of destruction, no longer having the strength to survive. All I did was question their will to live."
― Emporio Ivankov (One Piece)
"This? This is just spirit. Anything is possible if you have the spirit for it."
― Jack Rakan (Negima!)
"I don't care who I have to fight! If he rips my arms out, I'll kick him to death! If he rips my legs out, I'll bite him to death! If he rips my head off, I'll stare him to death! And if he gouges my eyes out, I'll curse him from the grave! Even if I'm torn to shreds, I'm taking Sasuke back from Orochimaru!"
― Naruto Uzumaki (Naruto)
"We don't have a word for hero. Being prepared to die for your family and friends, or what you hold dear, is a basic requirement for a Mando, so it's not worth a separate word. It's only cowards we had to find a special name for."
― Baltan Carid describing Mandalorian culture and language (Star Wars)
