Blog: 10 Famous Kamikaze Quotes

A real warrior must always be ready to meet his death. He must always be prepared to lose his life without hesitation at any moment.
Fear blinds the mind and paralyzes willpower.
A warrior needs deliberate and calm determination, a mind free of illusions, and will harder than metal.
Do not mind pain; meet your death as if you do it every day, samurai!
This is the true Way of the Warrior.

– Daidoji Yuzan


One must not fear the death of the body, but the death of the heart (Spirit). If you realize that the heart does not die, there is nothing in this world left to fear. Determination becomes unwavering. At this moment we hear the orders of Heaven.

– Oshio Heihachiro

Kamikaze quotes Takijiro Onishi

Fate knocks on everybody’s door, but why does only the warrior hear it? Why does he find strength and determination to set out, while it is much easier to sleep in a warm bed? Why does he need it? 
A person is always in the state of total uncertainty: this is the condition we all live in constantly; human life is filled with uncertainty, worry and the subconscious fear of death. People are trying to create the illusion of security, to forget about the inevitable end. 
But the Warrior does not lie to himself.
- from "Samurai. Spirit of the Warrior" by A. R. Basov


I will not get lost...
The North Star is shining in the darkness...
The road to Valhalla, straight like a sword, is always in front of me!
