I took a bunch of quotes from various manga and anime to create this. Every single word. I'm sure you'll recognize some parts. The only parts I changed were some punctuation that didn't make sense and editing out the last or first word(s) of the quote. What do you think? Hope it flows well.
Just a general note that when the POVs don't seem to make sense, the 'person' who is saying this would be talking to herself (yes... this person is straight... and also female because the references in this are to a guy)... or someone is talking to her.

If you want to know the truth, you must have the courage to accept it. I'm telling you this because you don’t get it. You think you get it, which isn’t the same as actually getting it.
When I was young, I used to think the world was a happy place. Then I learned the truth: that nothing is fair and everything you love gets taken away. You know why big brothers are born first? To protect the little ones that comes after them.
Have you ever fallen in love? If something small makes you happy, like listening to his voice, being able to see him, looking each other in the eye, I think that’s ‘love.’
What a sweet, sorrowful thing love can be. The scariest thing, the most painful thing, is to be hated by someone you truly love.
Do you find it unnatural that someone my age has never fallen in love? Actually, I thought that I’d been in love, but someone told me that I’d never seriously fallen in love with anybody… and he told me that I wouldn’t be able to act the role. Even if we ended up together in the drama, that doesn’t mean the same would happen in real life.
I’m the biggest sinner in the world. I can’t touch you or be attracted to you. I understand that. Yet my heart can’t help yearning for you. I won’t be able to stop myself. I wouldn’t be able to leave your side… You revealed your old self while you were acting. That means that you’re beginning to feel you can forgive yourself a little. It’s about time you let out the part of you that you’ve hidden away for so long.
I curse my youth. For I will have to spend the endless years ahead accompanied only with my tears. I’m completely empty inside… I don’t have anything… not even one thing. There is nothing left to believe in.
You will believe you’ve got no right to be happy.
And even when he’s torn to pieces like this… will you be able to keep smiling as if nothing has happened? Well, I did wish that I could force my help on him, even if he didn’t want it, but…!
What the?! Look at his eyes! Was he looking at me like that all this time? He looks sooo innocent! He can make such … a face?! It’s his… heavenly smile… Stay away. Stay away from me. Please don’t ... capture me.
Miracles aren’t something that just happens. Even when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth. It’s a bad habit of mine. When I concentrate on one thing, I forget other important things.
It’s a simple formula. The greater the tragedy, the greater the emotional effect. I can’t develop feelings. That’s how most idiots screw up. I shouldn’t be distracted by things like love! There’s something important that I should be thinking about, yes. Work comes first. I’ll seal away my true self. I will not tell anybody the truth. Behind this mask is… another mask! I have no intention of falling in love with anybody. I cannot afford to have anything precious here.
You cannot change your fate; however, you can rise to meet it.
That’s some good advice. Maybe I should write that down, frame it, and stick it up on my wall.
Whatever happens, happens. Optimistic wishes usually don’t come true. Well, the worst thing that could happen is we all die.
