20 Best Uncle Iroh Quotes for When Your Spirit feels Low




Avatar: The Last Airbender is a show cherished by fans worldwide, and it deserves nothing less than the respect and support it has earned over the years. Avatar has taught us many life lessons, the most important of which were the sayings by Zuko's uncle Iroh.


He frequently imparted all he knew to his nephew, Zuko, whom he regarded as his son. Not only Zuko, but he also won almost everyone's heart and always left them with a piece of his popular wisdom. His wise words are a staple of Avatar, and the show certainly would not be the same without this lovable old man and his unrivalled insight.


So, in honor of Uncle Iroh, here are some of the most inspirational quotes of Uncle Iroh.


"LIFE HAPPENS WHEREVER YOU ARE, WHETHER YOU MAKE IT OR NOT."

Uncle Iroh understands that life happens all around us, all the time and that it is not entirely our creation. His advice is to make the most of whatever situation one is in.


"PRIDE IS NOT THE OPPOSITE OF SHAME, BUT ITS SOURCE. TRUE HUMILITY IS THE ONLY ANTIDOTE TO SHAME."

According to Uncle Iroh, the source of your pride is the opposite of shame! Rage in the world comes from guilt. To let go of one's anger, one must first let go of arrogance and embrace humility.


“DESTINY IS A FUNNY THING. YOU NEVER KNOW HOW THINGS ARE GOING TO WORK OUT. BUT IF YOU KEEP AN OPEN MIND AND AN OPEN HEART, I PROMISE YOU WILL FIND YOUR OWN DESTINY.”

In this General Iroh quotes that nothing is set in stone, things will never go as per what you think, and it is upon the person to determine their fate.


"SOMETIMES LIFE IS LIKE THIS DARK TUNNEL. YOU CAN’T ALWAYS SEE THE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL, BUT IF YOU JUST KEEP MOVING YOU WILL COME TO A BETTER PLACE”.

Uncle Iroh, by these lines, means that we get caught up in the moment and forget that there is still a long journey ahead of us. Something better is waiting for us, whether we see it or not.


"HOPE IS SOMETHING YOU GIVE YOURSELF. THAT IS THE MEANING OF INNER STRENGTH."

A lesson everyone must follow is that Positivity produces good outcomes, while self-pity does not.


"IT IS IMPORTANT TO DRAW WISDOM FROM MANY DIFFERENT PLACES. IF YOU TAKE IT FROM ONLY ONE PLACE, IT BECOMES RIGID AND STALE."

By this, Uncle Iroh meant that never stick to one thing, explore various cultures, values, philosophies, and ways of life to enrich your understanding of the world and thus make us wiser.


"GOOD TIMES BECOME GOOD MEMORIES, BUT BAD TIMES MAKE GOOD LESSONS."

This means that a person can always learn from mistakes and the tragedy he has faced in his lives. Always see your bad experiences as an opportunity to do better in life.


"SOMETIMES, THE BEST WAY TO SOLVE YOUR OWN PROBLEMS IS TO HELP SOMEONE ELSE."

Every General Iroh quote contains a lesson, and every word has value. Uncle Iroh is aware of it. He encourages us to be compassionate. Help others regardless of the financial benefit. Nobody knows how you can be compensated for that.


"IT IS USUALLY BEST TO ADMIT MISTAKES WHEN THEY OCCUR, AND TO SEEK TO RESTORE HONOR."

Everyone makes mistakes. But how do you treat things after you've made them?

You must restore your honor. How can this be done? First and foremost, own up to your mistakes. After that, you will continue to improve things. However, accepting your faults is the most important thing you can do.


“THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH LETTING PEOPLE WHO LOVE YOU, HELP YOU.”

Many people are hesitant to allow their loved ones to assist them. People not only hesitate but also believe it is incorrect. Uncle Iroh sheds some light on the situation, stating that there is nothing wrong with it. People should be encouraged to assist their loved ones.


"If you look for the light, you can often find it. But if you look for the dark, that is all you will ever see.

Uncle Iroh had a point. He tries to explain to us that our mindset has a significant impact on the outcome of our lives. Positivity is always strong, whereas negativity is not.


While it is always best to believe in oneself, a little help from others can be a great blessing.

Iroh urges others to be more transparent and less self-conscious. He believes in a oneness that all humans are interconnected and contain good within them.


Allow yourself to slip down that road, and you surrender to your lowest instincts. In the darkest times, hope is something you give yourself. That is the meaning of inner strength.”

Uncle Iroh is right that everyone wants to do the right things in their lives, but there are times when it is not possible to do so. It is just too easy to give up hope at times. Through his quote, he urges everyone to hold on and not fall into despair.


Understanding others, the other elements, the other nations, will help you become whole."

Empathy is important. We may become cold if we are unable to comprehend people that are not like us. There is no better way to grow as an individual than to put yourself in the shoes of others. And, yes, this involves our opponents too!


At my age, there is really only one big surprise left, and I'd just as soon leave it a mystery.

In this quote of Uncle Iroh, he discusses how the only surprise left for him is his death date. And he'd rather not know when it would be. Otherwise, what would be the point of living? If we knew when our time was up, we'd sit there worrying and anticipating it. This is a beautiful quote that inspires us to live our lives to the fullest, not thinking about which day may be our last.


"Failure Is Only The Opportunity To Begin Again, Only This Time, More Wisely.

Don't give up just because you're not perfect! We should learn that failure is a necessary part of the learning process. It's OK to make mistakes as long as we keep trying!


“Perfection and power are overrated. I think you are very wise to choose happiness and love.”

We all know that Nobody is perfect and power corrupts. Some people aren't big on love, and happiness is something we all aim for at all times. Joy, by the way, is more than just a romantic feeling.


People show it in a variety of ways. There is a lot of love in the world, and it is our responsibility to spread it.


You have light and peace inside of you. If you let it out, you can change the world around you.

If you have peace and light inside you, you are calm, content, and more focused, allow it to develop. If you follow it and let it guide you, you will find yourself in a position of greater peace and love than you can imagine.


When you are filled with pride, you leave no room to be filled with wisdom.

This is our favorite uncle Iroh quote. Pride is destructive. You will never take advice from anyone and consider yourself superior.


And this will lead to making bad decisions in your lives. However, the more humble you are, the wiser you will be. So, don’t even try to swallow pride!


Failure is only the opportunity to begin again. Only this time, more wisely.

We can't succeed unless we fail; we can't see what we're doing wrong and go back and tweak things; we can't try to improve and find a new way to do something more efficiently and effectively unless we fail.
