Naruto Shippuden Volume
Kankuro-"I don't really want to say this, but...you're no more than a weapon
of mass terror to the whole village. For you to split
off from us now and enter the regular troops..it'll only be harder on you. It's full
of Jonin who think poorly of you...and most of the village fears you, too.."
Gaara-"I don't care...doing nothing will
only bring even greater
pain. I know what I must do Kankuro. I must clear
my own path. Perhaps
then..someday..I can be like him...I will
aim for the title of Kazekage, as a Shinobi of the sand..I will
connect to the people of this village and survive."
