Pain is a very complicated character when compared to villains like Freeza, Cell, Father and Dio Brando. His ideals were complex. World domination, wealth or immortality weren’t his motives. He was played by the events like war, poverty and war crimes and misdeeds of other characters like Danzo, Obito and Hanzo of the salamander. Despite being a villain, his ultimate goal was to bring peace in the world cursed by war. Maybe that’s why we all love Pain. His intentions were right but he was played by other factors and became helpless, just like us. Our intentions are right but we end up doing something we’re not proud of due to mishaps of life. During his run on the show, Pain explained his ideals or some facts based on the reality of that time, to multiple characters on multiple occasions. I have collected a few of them. Please tell us if you agree with these quotes.
Justice comes from vengeance, but that justice only breeds more vengeance.
Religion, Ideology, Resources, Land, Love or just because, no matter how pathetic the reason may be, it is enough to start a war.
You think you are the only one that matters, you think you can put off death after killing someone. But peace made you foolish and thoughtless. If you kill someone, someone else will kill you. This hatred binds us together.
Do you understand the pain a little now? If you don’t share someone’s pain, you can never understand them. But just because you understand them, doesn’t mean you can agree with them. That’s the truth.
Just by living, people hurt others without even realizing it. So as long as humanity exists, hate will also exist. There is no peace in this cursed world.
Even the most innocent children will eventually grow up as they learn what true pain is. It will affect what they say, what they think and then they become real people.
We all are drawn to act in the name of revenge that we call justice. But if there is such justice in revenge, the same justice will breed more revenge and trigger a cycle of hatred
Love breeds sacrifice which in turn brings hatred, only then you can know pain.
Sometimes you must hurt in order to know, fall in order to grow, lose in order to gain because life’s greatest lessons are learnt through pain.
Love is the reason why there’s pain. When we lose someone precious to us, hate is born. Vengeance is the product of that hate and so death follows. But in death, there is only more death and this will give rise to more pain and hence more and more deaths. This cycle of hatred will not cease to exist. Let me ask you this, how will you confront this hatred to bring peace to this cursed world?
Learn to embrace the fear of feeling about what it’s like to contemplate, what it’s like to know true pain. Because when I had nothing and no one, I always had pain.
