Analysis

常に means “always”. You can also say いつも instead but 常に sounds a bit more formal. In many cases, 常に and いつも are interchangeable, but there are times when you can only use いつも. It is when talking about a habit that takes place on a regular basis in a certain condition.

胸を張って means “proudly” or “confidently”. 胸を張る is a verb literally meaning “to push your chest out” which makes you look confident and this te-form of the verb means “in a certain state”.

生きろ is the imperative form of 生きる meaning “to live”. This form is used to give an order or command to people in a lower status or equal in male speech.

Noctis’s Quote

Always walk tall.

常に/いつも (always)

I always take care of my health.
Those two are always together.
Our boss is always complaining to his subordinates.

Note

When you want to emphasise that something is continuously occurring without a pause, interruption or change, use 常に rather than いつも.

The earth is spinning all the time.
Humans are evolving continuously.

いつも (“always” for a habitual action in a certain condition)

I always read a book before I sleep.
Our dog always barks when the door bell rings.
When I go to school, I always pass by that person.

Verb Te-Form (in a certain state)

We had a cherry-blossom picnic sitting on the bench.
In winter, I sleep with my socks on.
The person standing with a big bag is my father.
