Brilliant Haikyuu quotes

Did these Haikyuu quotes help motivate you to go for the win?

Haikyuu may be an anime about volleyball, but that doesn’t mean the lessons it shares aren’t applicable to all of us.

The show teaches us that there is more to life than defeat and to not try at all would be the worst thing.

If you have a dream, don’t be afraid to go after it.

And don’t be afraid to work hard.

If you have a goal take action to reach it, and if you fail — try again.

Don’t stop trying until you succeed, because, eventually, if you keep going, your success will be inevitable.
