Demon Slayer: 10 Inspiring Quotes From The Anime

Demon Slayer has plenty of memorable battle sequences over the course of its first season, but those aren’t the only scenes that will stick with viewers after watching this anime. During their journey to becoming powerful members of the Demon Slayer Corp, the characters gain plenty of wisdom that helps further their character arcs. And they impart those lessons on the viewers through their thoughts and words.

Sure, some of the things the characters talk about aren’t necessarily relatable — or even that wise — but there are a few quotes from Demon Slayer‘s first season that will inspire those watching the series.

Here are ten of the most inspirational quotes from Demon Slayer so far.

10. “Feel The Rage. The Powerful, Pure Rage Of Not Being Able To Forgive Will Become Your Unswerving Drive To Take Action.”

Demon Slayer: 10 Inspiring Quotes From The Anime

When Giyu tells Tanjiro that he should allow himself to feel the rage over what was done to his family, it seems like negative advice; after all, we often associate anger with negativity. But anger can be a driving force, and Giyu’s sentiment here is actually more inspirational than it initially comes off as.

If Tanjiro gives into despair, he won’t be able to avenge his family and move forward. Giyu tells him to use anger to his advantage instead. And if done correctly, most people can hone anger and frustration to work for them instead of against them.

9. “No Matter How Many People You May Lose, You Have No Choice But To Go On Living — No Matter How Devastating The Blows, Maybe.”

Demon Slayer: 10 Inspiring Quotes From The Anime

This is another quote about Tanjiro’s losses, but this one comes from Tanjiro himself. As one of the only members of his family left alive, he realizes that he has to go on — even if the thought seems unappealing in his grief.

And this is a revelation that many people need to face when experiencing loss. It can seem tempting to wallow and refuse to go on living, but ultimately, the “devastating blows” Tanjiro refers to need to be worked through.

8. “Those Who Regretted Their Own Actions, I Would Never Trample Over Them. Because Demons Were Once Human Too. Just Like Me, They Were Human Too.”

Demon Slayer: 10 Inspiring Quotes From The Anime

When Urokodaki first meets Tanjiro, he claims that the boy won’t be a promising Demon Slayer if he continues to have empathy for demons. But Tanjiro’s ability to empathize with others — even those who don’t deserve it — actually proves to be one of his strengths as the anime continues. And this quote gives viewers some insight into why that is.

Because of what’s happened to Nezuko, Tanjiro understands better than anyone that demons were once human beings just like him. And even if he needs to eliminate them now that they’ve begun killing innocent people, Tanjiro still understands that they weren’t always monsters. He doesn’t take joy in defeating them.

7. “All I Can Do Is Work Hard! That’s The Story Of My Life!”

Demon Slayer: 10 Inspiring Quotes From The Anime

It’s clear from the first episode that Tanjiro values hard work, and this quote from him only drives that point home. In the beginning, he seems more than willing to do whatever it takes to support his family. And even after they’re gone, he focuses all his time and energy on saving Nezuko and becoming the best Demon Slayer he can be.

This is a simple quote, but it suggests that working hard will pay off in the end. And while there are always obstacles to take into consideration, there’s no denying that hard work can be satisfying — especially when it does bear results.

6. “All You Did Was Memorize A Fact. Your Body Has No Clue What It Needs To Do.”

Demon Slayer: 10 Inspiring Quotes From The Anime

Sabito tells Tanjiro this while they’re training together, asserting that Tanjiro’s inability to master his Water Breathing Technique is the reason he can’t cut the boulder Urokodaki puts before him.

And Sabito’s commentary here is applicable to anyone who has studied something but hasn’t yet mastered applying it in real life. Just because you generally know how to do something doesn’t mean you have enough experience to actually master that skill yet. But practicing often can change that.

5. “It’s Not About Going First. It’s About The Overall Flow.”

Demon Slayer: 10 Inspiring Quotes From The Anime

Inosuke says this to Tanjiro during to Natagumo Mountain arc, and it’s mostly a remark about Inosuke’s fighting style. He acts on impulse rather than analyzing every detail of the situation like Tanjiro does, a method that isn’t necessarily better or worse than the other boy’s.

But Inosuke’s words ring true in situations outside of fighting, too. Being the first to do something doesn’t matter if you aren’t wholly engaged and doing your best at it.

4. “I Can Do It. I Know I Can Do It. I’m The Guy Who Gets It Done, Broken Bones Or Not. No Matter What, I Can Do It! I Can Fight!”

Demon Slayer: 10 Inspiring Quotes From The Anime

Tanjiro’s upbeat spirit is what carries him through all of the terrible things he experiences during the first season of Demon Slayer, and his statement here highlights why he’s able to overcome so much. He views himself as someone who gets things done, and he doesn’t doubt his own abilities.

Those components of Tanjiro’s personality are ones many of us would benefit from adopting, and they’d certainly help viewers conquer their own self-doubt.

3. “If You Can Do One Thing, Hone It To Perfection. Hone It To The Utmost Limit.”

Demon Slayer: 10 Inspiring Quotes From The Anime

Zenitsu’s instructor, Jigoro, tells him this when he’s training to master his Thunder Breathing, and it’s a piece of advice that Zenitsu carries with him. We see evidence of this in the boy’s flashbacks when he fights one of the Spider Demons on Natagumo Mountain.

And although Jigoro says this in reference to becoming a Demon Slayer, this quote is truly applicable to any craft. If you’re talented at something, you should put your energy into honing that skill. And doing so “to the utmost limit” will likely result in becoming an expert.

2. “Don’t Ever Give Up. Even If It’s Painful, Even If It’s Agonizing, Don’t Try To Take The Easy Way Out.”

Demon Slayer: 10 Inspiring Quotes From The Anime

This quote is a sentiment that Zenitsu recalls during and after his fight with the Spider Demon on Natagumo Mountain. He’s been poisoned and beaten down at this point, but he refuses to forfeit — forcing himself to defeat the demon despite the physical pain he’s in.

Refusing to give up, despite how uncomfortable one is, is a surefire way to achieve your goals. Zenitsu’s right that taking the easy way out doesn’t accomplish anything, and that’s a piece of advice most people could take advantage of.

1. “I May Be The Only Swords-Lady Among The Pillars Who Can’t Cut A Demon’s Head Off. But Anyone Who Creates Poison That Can Kill Demons Can Be Quite Amazing.”

Demon Slayer: 10 Inspiring Quotes From The Anime

This quote is from Shinobu, and it holds a powerful message within it. Although Shinobu could easily sulk about the fact that she’s the only Hashira who can’t cut a demon’s head off, she instead decides to focus on what she can do, asserting that her strengths make her a powerful opponent in spite of her flaws.

If everyone celebrated what they were capable of instead of fixating on what they’re not able to do, we’d likely see a far more confident and talented society emerge.
