22 Best Honda Tohru quotes

1- “No one really starts out kind. All we know how to do at first is want. We want food, we want attention… It’s just natural survival instinct, I guess… But kindness is something that we all have to learn as we go. It’s something that grows and develops slowly over time… The same way our bodies do…
” Honda Tohru

Honda Tohru quotes

2- “We’re searching for a reason of existence. With our own strength, because maybe the truth is that there’s no reason for life from the very beginning. Everyone hopes and tries so hard to find a reason of existence. The reason of birth, of staying with someone, of existence, believing we have to find them all with our own hands. Like finding a place for ourselves in dreams, in jobs, in people. The reasons we conclude may be indefinite and fragile. We may lose it too, but even so, we want a reason. As long as I’m alive, I want it too. If possible, I want to find a reason of existence within a person, within someone.

11- “My mom told me, it’s better to trust people than to doubt them. She said that people aren’t born with kind hearts. When we’re born, all we have are desires for food and material things. Selfish instincts, I guess. But she said that kindness is something that grows inside of each person’s body, but it’s up to us to nurture that kindness in our hearts. That’s why kindness is different for every person.

Because…because really…there might not be anyone who was born with a reason. I think that everyone might have to find one on their own. [in her head] A reason for being born… A reason that it’s okay to be alive… A reason to exist. [aloud] I think everyone might have to find it themselves…and decide for themselves. It could be your dreams…your job…or a person. …The reason you’re looking for…might be vague, unclear…and uncertain. [in her head] And you might lose it. [aloud] But as long as you’re alive…you have to keep searching for that reason.

Honda Tohru quotes

20- “[To Kyo Sohma]If you think of someone’s good qualities as the umeboshi in an onigiri, it’s as if their qualities are stuck to their back! People around the world are like onigiri. Everyone has an umeboshi with a different shape and color and flavor. But because it’s stuck on their back, they might not be able to see their umeboshi. “There’s nothing special about me. I’m just white rice.” [in her head] That’s not true. There is an umeboshi — on your back. [aloud] Maybe the reason people get jealous of each other, is because they can see so clearly the umeboshi on other people’s backs. I can see them, too. I can see them perfectly. There’s an amazing umeboshi on your back, Kyo-kun.
