It’s Dangerous to Go Alone! Take This: Motivational Quotes From Games

The Legend of Zelda

I don’t know about you, but I’ve certainly needed a few reasons to push through the past week or two. When the going gets really rough, I turn to a few of my favorite characters from games for motivation, and you know what, it actually helps! So, naturally, I asked Melissa for a little extra help on this assignment. After all, I could only pull so many quotes from Dragon Age before this became a love letter to Varric. (Been there. Done that.)

From everyone’s favorite storyteller to the wise words of a former spy, you just might find that one of these quotes will inspire you to keep fighting despite what life may be throwing at you right now. Never forget: you will get through this. And if you need to reach out to someone, please take a look at these resources. They’re all free, and always available to you in case you need a hand!

With that, let’s move on to the quotes. If you don’t see your favorites here, drop it in the comments! I’d really love to update this list with your picks as well. That way, we can create something truly meaningful (and maybe even a little bit fun!) together. What d’you say?

Dragon Age

Varric Tethras, Dragon Age

“You’re wonderful and irreplaceable. The world is lucky to have you in it.”

“Don’t listen to people who try to bring you down, because you are important and you are priceless. You absolutely deserve happiness.”

“Always remember that you’re not alone. I’ve got your back no matter what happens. So do a lot of other people. We all care, we’re all here for you. You need to know that.”

“Anything can change!”

“Hope will never die!”

Tales of Symphonia

Lloyd Irving, Tales of Symphonia

“Don’t depend on others. Walk on your own two legs. / Goodness and love will always win. / Play hard, play lots! / Even a small star shines in the darkness. / You can do anything if you try. / Never let your feet run faster than your shoes.”
