Chiyo: Sometimes you can spend your life ignoring your problems, trying to forget the shame of having a family member who is a criminal, but in the end you have to understand that the crimes committed by your parents or children or even your best friends are not YOUR crimes. If your father hits you it is not your fault, it is because something in them is lacking and you are the easiest target. It is because they see in you something they do not have in them, be it innocence, beauty or happiness. In the end you have to decide to stand up to that bullying and do something about it, both for yourself and the people who will be harmed by it.
Choji Akimichi: If you are unhappy with how you look, then do everything you can to change it but don't become defensive when ignorant and stupid people make comments. Some people are rude and only flaws you feel are true can become painful insults. You must learn to accept who you are, love what you do, have no regrets and improve what you can. In the end, even if you spend your life with two friends, you will have more than most people. Loving yourself is the difference between a life of happiness and a life of empty wishing.
Deidara: Art is not violent, it should show the world as is. Hiding your hatred behind art does nothing and using your art to hurt others is worse.
Fugaku Uchiha: Love your children for who they are, not the people you want them to be.
Gaara: There are horrors in the world, children abused and killed for nothing else than their parents have determined they are monsters. God help the world when those children grow up, and pray that they realize one day that hatred is not the answer.
Haku: Sometimes you love the wrong person, sometimes you cannot save them. But don't waste yourself on something you do not believe in... even if that person begs you to stay.
Hinata Hyuuga: People will not always see you for your worth. If you are shy and polite, they might even see that as weak. Be happy with who you are. Work to become strong. One day, even if just for a minute, someone will stop and tilt their head, they will say in awe, "Well, look at that, she has changed."
Ino Yamanaka: Even if you can read people well, it does not mean you will always understand who they are. One day, the man/woman you thought you knew will surprise you.
Itachi Uchiha: Sometimes you have to become the monster to save the people you love.
Jiraiya: Don't waste your life not taking the risks that really matter. Don't pretend to be greater than you already are. Filling your life with temporary men and women, making lewd jokes and pretending to care about nothing but partying. Usually people drink to cover painful things. It does not make you strong to party all the time, it makes people dislike you for living a lie, it makes people worry and tired. It makes you thin and stretched out like bad rubber. It does nothing but push back the problem with another problem. Honesty is the best policy, even if they do not feel the same way you will have tried, you can move on. Even if you spend years wondering, you will be sober and able to live your life. It is better to heal than wasting your life on something so stupid as being worried about reality.
Kakashi Hatake: Wearing a mask does not make you special. No one can see through your troubles because no one reads minds. Until you are ready to seek help, then no one is truly going to help you.
Kiba Inuzuka: Wild boys need to remember that even though they are "free spirits" that is not always the best way to deal with the world. No one has to deal with your sloppiness, your temper tantrums and your fear of doing anything conventional. Accept that sometimes you need to put on shoes and come in from the forest, because the world is not about you and sometimes the best way to deal with force is to let it push you in the direction you truly need to go.
Maito Gai: Just because you are strange does not mean you are not worth something. Wear what you like, do as you please, but make sure you have the personal strength to not let you borrow it. Don't do anything that you can't 100% say was in your heart. Learn from those around you, love without barriers, be discerning and true to yourself and your life will be your own. Only those who wear uniforms for teams they do not want to be part of will look back on life and say, "I regret." Even if you are not popular or are made fun of for being "gay" or "fat" or "nerdy" it does not matter, because as long as you live to be yourself, to be a good person, to respect other life, you will never lose sleep over the things bullies do to cover their own insecurities.
Minato Namikaze: Sometimes you will have to decide between death and life, your own or someone elses. You won't always get the family you wanted, the girl/guy you love, the job you deserve. You might die young, with a son on the way, with a wife you truly love. But if you are to die, make sure it is for the right reasons and that your sacrifice is made for both yourself and those you love. Dying in vain is the worst way to go, because you might leave someone behind who spends their life wondering why you didn't want to stay with them. In the face of disease, go out with honor. Don't regret what you will be missing, use the last moments you have to say what you can and do what you can for yourself.
Naruto Uzumaki: It takes true strength to forgive the people who abuse you, to accept the demons inside, to acknowledge not everyone is going to be good and kind but still believe the best in the world. These people are rare and when you meet one, do not bash them for being a bit too eager to help or smiling, sit down and talk to them, appreciate the rare gem them are. And if you happen to be the sort of person who thinks holding a grudge is the right way to deal with anger, then you might take a lesson from these types of people. There is a difference between acknowledging some people are not the best and seeking justice or hating the world and making these people suffer. Forgiving does not mean forgetting, it means letting go of the hatred you hold and accepting that while people are not always perfect, you don't deserve to live a life filled with regret and hatred.
Neji Hyuga: Do not let grief blind you to the point where you turn a fellow victim into a "monster." Just because someone you love died does not mean you are allowed to make the world suffer for what was taken from you. It does not mean the people who love you deserve to be screamed at and abused. Just because you have been hurt does not give you free reign to hurt others. You are responsible for your own actions.
Obito Uchiha: Be yourself, be honest, open, and who you were meant to be. You don't know who you will change and inspire to be better.
Orochimaru: There will be monsters in the world who use and abuse you, who leave you wondering what is wrong. They will seem like perfect members of society, they will lure you in with promises of how smart and talented you are and then they will hurt you. Sometimes you will not know you are being hurt, other times you will not know how to get out from under their thumb. You will do things you are ashamed of. Life is unfair and you do not deserve to be treated like a toy. Or worse, less than a possession. But in the end, when you are no longer a child and under their control, or even when you grow up and still fear them, you are responsible for yourself. You have to save yourself, no one will see through your mask if you pretend everything is okay. Sometimes you have to save yourself.
Pain: You will always have different sides you show to people. But you will need to keep the bad parts under control. Just because you have suffered, been poor or hungry does not mean other people must answer to your world view. There are safe ways to make change, violence is never the first answer to the question of inequality.
Rin: Don't wait until the person is gone to realize you love them and to tell them they mean something to you.
Rock Lee: Liking yourself and working hard can often make you stronger than even the most talented of people. If you like yourself and know what you want, half the battle is fought. The rest is the strength to get up even after the bullying and the taunts and keep working at it, night after night, with all you are. One day, you might get to the place you always dreamt and look that person in the eye and say, "I did this on my own hard work." Or you might fail, and try again, and fail, but you will learn that you are a far better person for failing than you would be for always succeeding.
Sai: Art helps people find themselves. It is a healing balm, and can make emotionless wrecks into people again, it can make boys into men and girls into women. It can make the world new again.
Sakura Haruno: Don't waste your life following an abusive lover just because you once fancied yourself in love with them. If they tell you no, then listen to them, don't stalk them or try to force them to love you. The worst thing you can do to the guy or girl you love is make them feel trapped in your affection. No one wants someone who is focused solely on them and does nothing to better themselves. And if they do, then it is likely they have more problems then your "dream prince" should and it is best to let them settle their affairs before tying your life to theirs. The only people who want someone to worship them are gods and men who want to be gods. You have worth, you will find someone to love you. It might not be someone as handsome or passionate, it might be someone you least expected. But in the end, when you are old and looking back at your life, it will be the people who cared and stayed that you will appreciate more than the man who left you alone, lying on a park bench, as if you were trash.
Sasuke Uchiha: Just because someone is talented or strong or good looking or comes from a good family does not mean they don't suffer. Everyone has demons. Everyone loses their family at one time or another. Everyone has duties and burdens. It does not give someone a right to make others suffer, to kill, to steal and hurt people just because they feel the ghosts are more important than the living.
Shikamaru Nara: Being smart does not protect your heart from the loss of parents, fathers or friends. being smart does nothing unless you use it, and there is nothing brave about hiding behind games of chess and shunning people for being "troublesome." When you finally realize the people in your life are worth fighting for, hope it will not be too late to save them. But being smart does not mean you are better at saving anyone, it just means you might help the world stay a bit safer, a bit better.
Shino Aburame: Someone has to love the icky, gross, pathetic things in life, be they bugs or people. Introverts see more than extroverts, they appreciate the soft, silent moments that the loud, rough people miss. They are the ones who write love poems about moss and mud, and they are the people who are often shunned or forgotten, but who are more loyal to demons and weaklings than anyone else.
Shizune: Sometimes when you love someone you follow them through their shit, you become the parent to someone much older than you, all because you know somewhere inside them is the person they need to be. You have to see them become better, if you wait it out then they might just change who they are. And these people will teach you strange, useful things, like how to get out of the bill at a bar, how to avoid debt collectors and how to heal the sick. They might teach you the magic of running away from the past or crying without anyone noticing. They might show you how to be beautiful well into your sixties, how to do your make up on a bus or throw a good punch in heels. They will also share rare moments of their pain that will make you stay, hold them as they gasp for breath and refuse to cry, or burst into sharp shards of grief. Sometimes you stay with them forever, and sometimes you just have to leave. But you have to choose, to be the savior or the saved... you cannot always be both.
Temari: When you are beautiful, you have to be strong. When you are a fighter you have to show no weakness. But when you fall in love you have to be willing to be ugly and terrible and perfect and perfectly natural... and weak. You have to fight and cry and do all the things you never realized your parents did in those moments between kissing and shouting.When you do fall in love you will pray the person will be perfect and the fairytale will last until you are old and grey. But you might just meet a boy in another town who is sarcastic and crude and does not care if you wear rags, because he is after your brain. Which is to say, you will find someone who does not particularly fit what you originally wanted, but will make it all worth it. By it, I mean the trouble.
Tenten: You do not have to wear make-up, dresses, high heels to be valid in this society. As long as you are happy being you then the rest matters very little. Being feminine is not bad but it is also not a death sentence. It does not mean you can't play basketball or kick ass. It does not mean you can't fix cars or be a blacksmith. It does not mean you are a butch, a dyke, a tomboy or that you will never find a husband/wife. All that matters is that you accept yourself, improve your attitude and continue on with your head held high. Sexuality, gender, are not as important as being who you were meant to be: gay, straight or bisexual does not matter in the end, all that matters is if at the end of the day you can fall asleep without regretting what you have done and who you are.
Tsunade: Love is a fickle thing, it leaves before it blooms, it lasts far longer than it should. People die, they always will, the people left behind have the duty to the dead to remember them but also keep living. The moment you turn the dead into an excuse is the moment you fail them. Falling into addiction because "it is too hard" retards your ability to grow. If you love someone, then remain the strong, wonderful person they loved, strive to be better, open up. Grief, like misery, loves company... but when you have someone to share the loss with it becomes more than just a crutch, but the thing that might inspire you to change the world in their honor.
Zabuza: Sometimes when you finally become the person you want to be, the good guy standing before an army of thugs, you are too late. The person you truly cared for, the one you loved, is gone. There is nothing you can do but be who you are, but if you love someone you might have to change for them... and you might not like who is looking back at you in the mirror.
