The full speech is much longer, but this is my favorite bit from Ansem the Wise's message to Riku in DDD:

"Our most precious treasures—even an empty puppet—the trees of the forest, and the petals on the wind—there are hearts around us everywhere we look. And it does not take superhuman powers to see them. Surely we remember as children the way our hearts made everything seem so shiny, and perfect. Sora has a heart like that—uncorrupted, willing to see the good before the bad. When he sees the heart in something, it then becomes real."

I thought that was a touching message about the value of a light-hearted perspective that transcends the game. It's also a good summary of what makes Sora, Sora.

I love this one too from the Wiseguy, from KH2:

"The process of encoding hearts is incalculable. The inhabitants of my Twilight Town were data created from real hearts. I was convinced that they would act and behave the way I had envisioned—but I couldn't have been more wrong. A heart is so much more than any system. I saw it when Roxas and Kairi crossed paths. I knew. But I was too stubborn to accept it. It's always the same. I try to wrap my mind around things my heart already knows, only to fail. While I was trying to bring Sora back, I had so many plans in store. But once Sora was an acting force, they fell apart. All my research amounted to nothing, compared with that one boy's heart."

One of my favourite lines for its delivery is Young Xehanort's reply to Sora after fighting the Lich in KH3:

Sora: So what, you're worried about me now?
YX: No, there's no saving you

I think Young Xehanort is Xehanort's most overtly evil incarnation and I love the cold, matter-of-fact, but cruel way Benjamin Diskin says that last line.

I loved when Goofy said "Donald don't!!" before Donald cast Zettaflare. That line and Mickey's reaction told us what Donald was capable of and the price he would pay for it.

My favorite by far, the one I keep coming back to in my head...

"You are not gonna wake up, okay? Look, there's no real vs. dreams anymore. There's just you, us, and this." -Xigbar

Probably the height of DDD fully diving into the deliberate WTF-ery, as well as some of Xigbar's other lines in that scene ("We have to his these plot points in order, Sora."). It hits hard and is what makes DDD (and Xigbar!) special.

Of course I also love Billy Zane's Ansem speech, and a ton of great dialogue from Days/KH2 Roxas opening.

I also loved Riku's "I know you don't believe that." in the KH3 trailer, was less impactful in context though.

Huh. I hadn't seen the trailer and this line was one of my favorite. I found it very impactful in context. But I've now watched the trailer to see what you meant and does sound awesome, too. I guess if you've heard it in the trailer first, you've had time to imagine a context and so it ruins the in-game experience a little bit. I'm glad I avoided all those spoilers! It's one of the best lines in the game anyway <3 Definitely top 5, surrounded by YX lines ("there's no saving you" is soooo good).

SaÏx's parting words in KH2:

"Why? Kingdom Hearts, where is my heart?"

This line, spoken as the dying SaÏx reaches out to Kingdom Hearts, is one of few I remember clearly from my original playthrough on the PS2. I said before how in KH2 Saïx seems unfeeling and cruel, and this is true up until your battle with him. In the battle itself, he reveals a violent rage in his Beserker mode, and then at the end he shows a pitiful longing to be fully human again and I think it's a really striking moment.

I like the KH3 Organization death scenes too, which generally have a similar tone to Saïx's original death but they this scene packs at least the same emotional punch with just seven words. Also, in KH2 we don't expect Saïx to be recompleted so his death, when his goal was almost literally within reach, is extra sad.

There are so many powerful lines in the series, but the ones that always stick with me are the ones I've naturally absorbed into my vocabulary and not only share with my friends, but also hear them say themselves even when they have no idea what I am quoting from! Others that impact me so are ones that leave me feeling raw emotion, such as sadness, joy, or hope.

Xemnas's "Indeed". That low-toned authorization was as sinister as it was absolute.

Spirit of the Magic Mirror's "How unfortunate". It was a stern yet solemn admission of defeat; impersonal yet respectful.

Lexaeus's "We wait, see what develops". A strong tactic coming from a strong character, and yet the words seemed to come from personal experience.

Riku (Ansem)'s "Heal this!". One of those rare instances of an adversary acknowledging your gameplay, which somehow legitimatized the conflict for me.

Aqua's "There's always a way". That moment of clarity and hope had me smiling from ear to ear, and then when Simple and Clean plays immediately after I'm left with a feeling of satisfaction.

Roxas's "Looks like my summer vacation is... over". It was heartbreaking; a pass-the-torch moment coupled with an admission of defeat, an acceptance of destiny. His life had only just begun to have meaning before he had to give it away.

There are many more I love, and in no particular order, but to keep from writing pages of analytics and personal experiences I'll stop here :).
