Shinji Ikari Quote #1
I have no value without [the Eva]. My life is worthless without it. Then, what am I? What am I? This is… Me! This is the shape that lets others recognize me as myself. It is my symbol for my Self. This is a representation. Everything is a description, not my real Self. Everything’s a shape, an identifier to let others recognize me as me. But then, what am I? Is this me? My true Self? My fake Self?
Shinji Ikari Quote #2
“I still don’t know where to find happiness. But I’ll continue to think about whether it’s good to be here… whether it was good to have been born. But in the end, it’s just realizing the obvious over and over again. Because I am myself.”
Shinji Ikari Quote #3
“Are you afraid of other people? I know that by keeping others at a distance you avoid a betrayal of your trust, but you must endure the loneliness. Man can never completely erase this sadness, because all men are fundamentally alone. Pain is something man must carry in his heart, and since the heart feels pain so easily, some believe that life is pain.”
