"One day I'd like to become something precious to others" is the perfect Gaara quote that touches on the inner demons he has struggled with throughout the Naruto series. In the beginning of Naruto, Gaara's quotes were terrifying, as he was hellbent on killing whoever got in his way. However, even though Gaara is introduced as a villain, he eventually conquers the skeletons in his closet, and even goes on to become the Kazekage.
One of the best Gaara quotes is "Peace under an illusion is not true peace. It's only meaningful if the real world manages to accomplish it." Not only is this line relevant to the series, but it also holds true in the real world.

If Love Is Just A Word

Not As A Frightening Weapon
"Now there's something I understand a little better. Hate, sadness, even joy. To be able to share it with another person... Naruto Uzumaki. From fighting him I learned that. He knew pain like I did and then he taught me that you can change your path. I wish that one day I can be needed by someone. Not as a frightening weapon... But as the sand's Kazekage."
