It is very hard to be human, little fox. Even the humans themselves don’t do a great job of it. The mortal world is full of hatred, betrayal, sadness and death. Most yokai and kami alike find that it is too much for them. Everything the humans think they value—love, honor, empathy, compassion—we yokai need nothing of those, especially when they so often lead to suffering and despair.
Julie Kagawa (Shadow of the Fox (Shadow of the Fox, #1))

Brandon Varnell (A Fox's War (American Kitsune, #12))
Symptoms of kitsune-tsuki varied. There are descriptions of “afflicted persons who ate gravel, ashes, hair, or combs, wandered the mountains and fields making piles of stones, jumped into rivers or ran into the mountains, etc.”29 In 1894, Lafcadio Hearn wrote, “Strange is the madness of those into whom demon foxes enter. Sometimes they run naked shouting through the streets. Sometimes they lie down and froth at the mouth, and yelp as a fox yelps.”30 Kitsune-tsuki (and other forms of possession) persisted throughout Hearn’s time, and similar phenomena are still occasionally identified today. But during the Meiji period, modern Western medicine was called on to redefine fox possession as a form of mental illness treatable by psychiatrists.

Guang always said that immortality was a generous reward for merely hunting yokai, but he had it backwards. Immortality wasn't the reward. It was the price Haruto had to pay.
Rob J. Hayes (Spirits of Vengeance (A Mortal Techniques novel))
These were the worst moments for Guang, watching his friend fight yokai and knowing he was useless to help. He knew Haruto wouldn't die, knew that he couldn't. Guang had seen proof of it many times, but he also knew every wound hurt. And there was always the chance, no matter how slim, that Haruto's immortality could fail him.
