"What's most important can't be seen with one's eyes."
Tatsuya Suou's watch had a writing that sounds similar to bonds.
"Do you remember what I once told you...? ...How the strength of your Social Links will determine your potential? Listen... Can you hear the many voices? Each one's power is limited... Yet, they all reach out to you... Can you feel them? Close your eyes and listen carefully... Their voices may be faint, but certainly you hear them..."
Persona 4 Arena UltimaxEdit
"Either way, it is decided. A struggle between solitude and bonds, the two great potentials of mankind, is about to begin..."
Persona 4: Dancing All NightEdit
Kanami Mashita and the Kanamin Kitchen all value and desire bonds. Yuko Osada written a song that talks about bonds. Mikuratana-no-Kami is a being manifested from the Sea of Souls, representing humanity's desire for easy bonds with others. Her desire is the collective desire of people who want an eternal bond without pain, by subjecting people to the belief that they can only connect with others if they become the 'selves' that others wish them to be.
"Personas are the strength of heart... The stronger the bonds that surround you, the more power your Personas will gain. There are countless people in the city who have talents that a weakling like you doesn't. You better rack that noggin of yours and get them on your side. We'll change that into power."
