40 iconic Gintoki Sakata quotes from Gintama Anime

1- “Life is basically like a soap bubble. It rides on the wind, flying here and there… and before you realize it – pop! It’s gone. When it’s about to disappear, you think that you could’ve flown a little higher. But by the time, it’s already too late.

Gintoki Sakata quotes

3-“Everyone’s carrying something that matters. You just don’t realize when you’re carrying it. It’s only after it slips out of your hand that you realize how heavy it was in the first place. So many times I thought that I’d never carry a load like that ever again. And yet, before I realized it, I was carrying it again. I’d feel so much better if I just got rid of it. But I just can’t bring myself to do it.
” -Gintoki Sakata

4-“You STILL don’t get it? When you tossed all of that away, a few important things were discarded as well. You abandoned your friends? More like you were afraid of BEING abandoned. You fight by yourself? More like you hid yourself in solitude from the beginning. You abandoned yourself? No… You just couldn’t bear the pain of having a heavy load place upon you, or being a heavy load, so you ran. Like the coward you are. If you want to live your life abandoning one thing after another, that’s your choice. But to try to incite your student to join you because you can’t handle being alone, makes you a fool.
” -Gintoki Sakata

5-“What is right? What is wrong? In this mixed up world, deciding what is right and wrong is not easy. You can’t just go by somebody else’s rules. If you let yourself be controlled like that, you’ll just become a puppet that can’t make decisions on it’s own. You have to live by your rules.

You can’t stop! That’s what I’m talking about! THAT’S THE TRUTH OF THE STRAWBERRY MILK! DO YOU GET IT!?

Gintoki Sakata quotes

It’s impossible to just sit and let it happen. Without thinking of the consequences their bodies just move. That’s what kind of idiocy is gathered here. That’s the Yorozuya. Even if you forget everything else, as long as you remember that much, we’re good. As long as you remember that, whomever your leader is, you guys will do fine.

Gintoki Sakata quotes

40-“Trying to shoulder the burden all by yourself? Don’t be a stranger. Weep and ask for help. Lean on me with your runny nose. Cry when you feel like crying. Laugh when you feel like laughing. When you’re tearing up with an ugly face, I’ll give you a good cry with an uglier face. When you’re laughing so hard your stomach hurts, I’ll laugh in a louder voice. That’s how it should be. It’s far better to get dirty while living true to yourself, than to throw away yourself and die a clean death.
” -Gintoki Sakata
