A long, long time ago, God decided to invite all of the animals to a banquet. He sent out word for all of them to come to his house the following evening, “And don’t be late!” he said. When the mischievous rat heard the news, he decided to play a trick on his neighbor, the cat. He told the cat that the party was the day after tomorrow. The very next day, all of the animals lined up for the celebration. The rat led the way, riding all the way there on the back of the cow. Everyone had a wonderful time, except for the cat, who missed the whole thing.
Tohru’s mom: “Hey, why are you crying?”
Tohru:” Because, that poor cat! He must be so lonely.* Sniffle* I know!! I won’t be a dog anymore! I’ll be a cat too!”
My favorite quotes from Fruits Basket~
Hatori- “What do you think snow becomes after it melts?”
Tohru- “What? Um, let’s see. It..It becomes spring, doesn’t it? No matter how cold it is now, spring will come for sure. Amazing, isn’t it? Snow always melts away. Always. I love spring the most.
Shigure to Tohru- “When you get anxious about the future, it is better not to think about it. The more you think about it the more anxious you’ll get. Of course its important to think about what lies ahead, too, but if you only look at what’s down the road, you’ll get tangled by the “laundry” by your feet and fall, wont you?You see, its also important to think about what you can do now. What you can do today, and if you keep washing things one at a time, you’ll be done before you know it. Sometimes the anxiety will start to well up, but when it does… take a little break. Read a book, watch tv, or eat soumen with everyone.”
"The part of a person that’s remarkable is like the umeboshi (pickled plum) on the back of a rice ball. All around the world, there are different colors, shapes, and flavors, but because it’s stuck to the back, they might not be able to see their precious umeboshi.
'I'm not special,' each one would think, 'just plain ole rice.'
Even though that’s not true, and there is an umeboshi on the back. The reason people get jealous of one another is because they can see the umeboshi on other people’s backs. Even now, someone might be feeling envious of something you don’t recognize in yourself.” - Tohru
Shut up. Quit shouting like you’re king of the figgin’ world. You’re making my ears bleed you bastard. Now I’ve got some common sense for you… If I wore a tie, it wouldn’t change who I am. If I had no piercings, it wouldn’t mean I’m nice and if my hair wasn’t black, it wouldn’t stop me from kicking your ass! Who do you think you are anyway? You think you’re God huh?! What’s the matter?! Run out of things to say? No more advice?! You’re not so hot anymore right now are you?!- Haru
