Just because you’re the antagonist doesn’t mean you can’t drop some wisdom. Here are some wise Itachi Uchiha quotes to ponder.

“You Focus on the Trivial, and lose sight of what is most important, Change is impossible in this fog of ignorance. How can we Evolve when Regulation is all we know?” – Itachi Uchiha

“People live their lives bound by what they accept as correct and true. That’s how they define “reality”. But what does it mean to be “correct” or “true”? Merely vague concepts… Their “reality” may all be a mirage. Can we consider them to simply be living in their own world, shaped by their beliefs?” – Itachi Uchiha

“Each of us lives, dependent, and bound by our individual knowledge and our awareness. All that is what we call “reality”. However, both knowledge and awareness are equivocal. One’s reality might be another’s illusion. We all live inside our own fantasies.” – Itachi Uchiha

“Knowledge and awareness are vague, and perhaps better called illusions. Everyone lives within their own subjective interpretation.” – Itachi Uchiha

“In this moment, I am euphoric. Not because of any phony Shinobi’s blessing. But because I’m enlightened by my intelligence.” – Itachi Uchiha

“Teachings that do not speak of pain have no meaning, for humankind cannot gain anything in return.” – Itachi Uchiha

“It is not wise to judge others based on your own preconceptions and by their appearances.” – Itachi Uchiha

“It’s foolish to fear what we have yet to see and know.” – Itachi Uchiha

“Don’t cry, Sasuke. Your big brother is here to protect you, no matter what happens.” – Itachi Uchiha

“No single thing is perfect by itself. That’s why we’re born to attract other things to make up for what we lack.” – Itachi Uchiha

“You and I are flesh and blood. I’m always going to be there for you, even if it’s only as an obstacle for you to overcome. Even if you do hate me. That’s what big brothers are for.” – Itachi Uchiha

“No, it means to forgive yourself for what you aren’t able to do. Your comrades are there to make up for what you cannot do and to prevent you from ignoring things that you actually might have been able to do.” – Itachi Uchiha

Itachi Uchiha Quotes on Strength 

Itachi Uchiha possesses great strength in order to best his opponents. But he also recognizes the importance of mental strength. Here are some of his quotes on physical and mental strength.

“Even the strongest of opponents always has a weakness.” – Itachi Uchiha

“Those who forgive themselves, and are able to accept their true nature… They are the strong ones!” – Itachi Uchiha

“Growth occurs when one goes beyond one’s limits. Realizing that is also part of the training.” – Itachi Uchiha

“I’ll admit that you’re stronger than before. But because of that, you seem to have lost sight of what’s truly important. Now listen carefully. The people of the village, who once abhorred you, have begun to admire you. They think of you as a comrade. It’s because you fought hard for their acceptance. You once said it was everyone who cares about you who helped you get where you are now. If you forget others because you have power, and become arrogant and egotistical, you’ll eventually become just like Madara. No matter how powerful you become, do not try to shoulder everything alone. Becoming the Hokage doesn’t mean people will acknowledge you. But when the people acknowledge you, you can become Hokage. Never forget your friends!” – Itachi Uchiha

“People’s lives don’t end when they die. It ends when they lose faith.” – Itachi Uchiha

“We are humans, not fish. We don’t know what kind of people we truly are until the moment before our deaths. As death comes to embrace you, you will realize what you are. That’s what death is, don’t you think?”  – Itachi Uchiha

“Those who cannot acknowledge themselves, will eventually fail.”  – Itachi Uchiha

“Growth occurs when one goes beyond one’s limits. Realizing that is also part of training.” – Itachi Uchiha
