When you're the protagonist of one of the most popular anime, you're going to have a lot of great quotes. For this list we're ranking the best Izuku Midoriya quotes from My Hero Academia, with the help of your votes.

Since Midoriya was born without a quirk, or superpower, he is the classic example of the zero to hero anime character. Some of Midoriya's best quotes are when he acknowledges his own limitations: "All men are not created equal. This was the reality I learned about society at the young age of four. And that was my first and last setback." When it comes down to it, Midoriya is just one of those anime characters who is constantly inspiring you with what he says: "That's right. Don't worry about what other people think! Hold your head up high and plunge forward!"

A Letter to a Hero

"Look at this letter someone sent me. It's from a boy I saved back at the training camp. A boy who hated everything to do with heroes and quirks... Telling me thank you... Yes, I know it's my fault that I've caused you so much concern, but... Even still... If only for a moment... In this letter, this boy... Made me his hero. And that makes it all worth it."
