Villain quotes by Rachel Held Evans
#12. Perhaps the most radical thing we followers of Jesus can do in the information age is treat each other like humans-not heroes, not villains, not avatars, not statuses, not Republicans, not Democrats, not Calvinists, not Emergents-just humans. This wouldn't mean we would stop disagreeing, but I think it would mean we would disagree well. #Quote by Rachel Held Evans

Villain quotes by Northrop Frye
#16. The upper class made their names for the lower classes--villain, knave, varlet, boor--into terms of contempt because the people they described had to wriggle through life as best they could: their first and almost their only rule was survival. The deadliest insult one gentleman could give another then was to call him a liar, not because the one being insulted had a passion for truth, but because it was being suggested that he couldn't afford to tell the truth. #Quote by Northrop Frye
Villain quotes by Devdutt Pattanaik
#17. ...many forces that influenced the flow of the tale: boons and curses and manmade laws.

Villain quotes by Tyler Oakley

Villain quotes by Anthony Zerbe
#20. I've never really been serious about my villainy. I don't have a master plan. I suppose my philosophy is: Every villain has a mother. For every cold-blooded killer on your screen, there's a little old lady somewhere who calls him 'sonny.' #Quote by Anthony Zerbe
Villain quotes by Gabrielle Union
#21. I think I'm drawn to more villain-type characters, because it's so cool to get to say all the things you want to say. In Hollywood, you get to this position where you have to bite your tongue so much. You take all your experiences of not being able to say what you really want to say, and channel that through your character. #Quote by Gabrielle Union
Villain quotes by Malachi Throne
#22. I was playing the villain 'Falseface' on Batman, and I got wind that they were going to pay a young starlet $25,000 to be in the same episode. Well, I wasn't getting anywhere near that amount of money, so I refused to let them put my name in the credits. #Quote by Malachi Throne
Villain quotes by Elizabeth Hoyt
#23. This is who I am, Séraphine. Naked, with blade and blood. I am vengeance. I am hate. I am sin personified. Never mistake me for the hero of this tale, for I am not and shall never be. I am the villain. #Quote by Elizabeth Hoyt
Villain quotes by Duane Chapman
#24. When I was a child I liked watching shows about bounty hunters and Canadian Mounties. I liked the 'Lone Ranger,' I liked shows where the guy saved the girl from the villain. I just liked those kinds of things and I wanted to be a guy like that, you know, that would save the damsel in distress. #Quote by Duane Chapman
Villain quotes by Christopher Walken
#25. I certainly have never been an actor who can play the Everyman guy - or, I don't tend to get those parts. I've tended to play eccentrics. I've played a lot of villains, of course. #Quote by Christopher Walken
Villain quotes by Seth Rogen
#26. There is no such thing as a villain. It's the others who are wrong. In as much, all villains are the same. #Quote by Seth Rogen
Villain quotes by Orson Scott Card
#28. But if you caught my informant,' said Achilles, 'why in the world would Chamrajnagar - or Graff, if it was him - launch the shuttle anyway? Was catching me doing something naughty so important they'd risk a shuttle and it's crew just to catch me? I find that quite ... flattering. Sort of like winning the Nobel Prize for scariest villain. #Quote by Orson Scott Card
Villain quotes by James A. Baldwin
#29. I am aware that no man is a villain in his own eyes. #Quote by James A. Baldwin
Villain quotes by Chelsea M. Campbell
#30. I explained that I'd been homeschooled but that didn't help. She must have been picturing cavemenlike supervillians in capes grunting and showing me how to rub two sticks together to make the pretty fire stuff. #Quote by Chelsea M. Campbell
Villain quotes by Robert E. Morsberger
#31. Zorro also is part of the bandido tradition, most closely associated with the possibly mythical Joaquin Murrieta and the historical Tiburcio Vasquez. As well as these local California legendary figures, Zorro is an American version of Robin Hood and similar heroes whose stories blend fiction and history, thus moving Zorro into the timeless realm of legend. The original story takes place in the Romantic era, but, more important, Zorro as Diego adds an element of poetry and sensuality, and as Zorro the element of sexuality, to the traditional Western hero. Not all Western heroes are, as D. H. Lawrence said of Cooper's Deerslayer, "hard, isolate, stoic, and a killer," but in the Western genre the hero and villain more often than not share these characteristics. What distinguishes Zorro is a gallantry, a code of ethics, a romantic sensibility, and most significant, a command of language and a keen intelligence and wit. #Quote by Robert E. Morsberger
Villain quotes by Amanda Scott
#32. Prithee, sir," Ian said, controlling his impatience, "tell us what Dougal said."
"He said he'd tell the world that he's had his way with our Lina, even shared her with his men. Och, but I wanted to hang him from the tree outside me gate right then! In short, if Dougal canna have her, he'll murder her reputation. So, in my fury, I've condemned my daughter to the sad future of an unmarried, unwanted woman. A future in which others will revile her, if Dougal has his say. Och, I'm a villain m'self to do such a vile thing. Mayhap I should think more on it, unless . . ."
He looked at Rob, who stared silently, blankly back at him.
After a glance at Ian, Andrew chose a point midway between the two men and said with a slight, self-deprecating shrug, "I dinna suppose ye'd . . . either o' ye . . . be willing to marry the poor lassie and save her from such a dreadful fate."
Ian saw the pit yawning before him, but he barely heeded it. Having saved Lina from one wretched fate, he did not want to watch her fall victim to another.
Impulsively, he said, "I . . . I'd be willing to give the idea some thought, sir."
"Good lad," Andrew said cheerfully. "I'll let ye have her. #Quote by Amanda Scott
Villain quotes by Ryan Reynolds
#33. I don't personally believe that villains exist. Villains are just a way of saying that somebody has an opposing conviction. #Quote by Ryan Reynolds
Villain quotes by Emanuel Swedenborg
#34. He who assists a poor or needy villain does evil to his neighbor ... for through the assistance which he renders he ... supplies him with the means of doing evil to others. #Quote by Emanuel Swedenborg
Villain quotes by J.K. Rowling
#35. Aha! What villains are these, that trespass upon my private lands! Come to scorn at my fall, perchance? Draw, you knaves, you dogs! #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Villain quotes by Marie Lu
#36. The immortal story of the White Wolf, who may have been a courageous hero or a cruel villain. Depending which version of the story you've heard. #Quote by Marie Lu
Villain quotes by Bryan Fuller
#37. The definition of horror is pretty broad. What causes us "horror" is actually a many splendored thing (laughs). It can be hard to make horror accessible, and that's what I think Silence of the Lambs did so brilliantly - it was an accessible horror story, the villain was a monster, and the protagonist was pure of heart and upstanding so it had all of these great iconographic elements of classic storytelling. It was perceived less as a horror movie than an effective thriller, but make no mistake, it was a horror movie and was sort of sneaky that way. #Quote by Bryan Fuller
Villain quotes by Devdutt Pattanaik
#38. Human beings divide the world into mine and yours. We create borders. Include what we like and exclude what we do not like. Thus a rift occurs in relationships. Gandhari is jealous of Kunti, Kunti of Madri, Arjuna of Karna, Duryodhana of Bhima. That is why Yayati favors Puru over Yadu. That is why Satyabhama quarrels with Rukmini. But for Shyam, there are no boundaries. No mine and yours. This no hero or villain. No predator or prey. No them or us. He sides with both killer and killed. For him, in wisdom, everyone is family. Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam. #Quote by Devdutt Pattanaik
Villain quotes by Robert Davi
#39. As a kid, you either wanted to play Bond or a Bond villain. Ask any of my friends in entertainment, whether they are actors or writers or producers or directors, and they will tell you that they'd love to play a Bond baddie. I can go anywhere in the world and I am known; it put me on the international map. #Quote by Robert Davi
Villain quotes by Joanna Baillie
#40. Stand there, damn'd meddling villain, and be silent;
For if thou utt'rest but a single word,
A cough or hem, to cross me in my speech,
I'll send thy cursed spirit from the earth,
To bellow with the damn'd! #Quote by Joanna Baillie
Villain quotes by Meredith Duran
#41. Villainy was not simply the red raging glory of inflicting well-deserved pain; it was also the curdling knowledge of having inflicted injustice. A villain simply did not care. Only the victims did. #Quote by Meredith Duran
Villain quotes by Blake Griffin
#42. Acting is the great love of my life. It gives you permission to use all parts of yourself. Permission to be the hero, the love interest, the comedian, the villain. Transformation excites me. So does truth. Nothing is more thrilling, hilarious, and tragic than the truth. Those things motivated me to become an actor. Also, they always have the best food on set. #Quote by Blake Griffin
Villain quotes by Shane Black
#43. I love the idea of a super villain that doesn't wear a cape, that doesn't wear a super suit. #Quote by Shane Black
Villain quotes by Victoria Schwab
#44. If Eli really was a hero, and Victor meant to stop him, did that make him a villain?
He took a long sip of his drink, tipped his head back against the couch, and decided he could live with that. #Quote by Victoria Schwab
Villain quotes by Israel Shenker
#45. Embracing and rejecting tradition, bound and liberated by faith, torn between obscurantism and reason, self-assured and self-critical, they were a kaleidoscope of fragments, positions held and abandoned, images formed and shattered, God-fearing Jew, God-denying Jew, passionate and indifferent, hero and villain, yea-sayer, nay-sayer. #Quote by Israel Shenker
Villain quotes by Kerstin Gier
#46. If we were in a film, the villain would turn out to be the least-expected person. But as we aren't in a film, I'd go for the character who tried to strangle you. #Quote by Kerstin Gier
Villain quotes by Heinrich Heine
#47. I take pride in never being rude to anyone on this earth, which contains a great number of unbearable villains who set upon you to recount their sufferings and even recite their poems. #Quote by Heinrich Heine
Villain quotes by Wen Spencer
#48. Honor isn't about other people, it's about what you want to be," Louise said. "A hero does the good and noble thing. The villain allows fear or envy or selfishness to let him ignore what is right. #Quote by Wen Spencer
Villain quotes by Tom Holland
#49. I thought, gazing at the beauty of the landscape again, it is as though the fiend has prevailed against the angels, and fixed his throne in a heaven, to rule it as though it were Hell. #Quote by Tom Holland
Villain quotes by M. Robinson
#50. You were the villain in your own story, Martinez. In mine, you've always been my hero. #Quote by M. Robinson
Villain quotes by Matthew Davis
#51. To become a villain, you had to have become disillusioned, and in order to become disillusioned you had to have been passionate about something you believed in that was shaken and ripped from your grasp as a protagonist in that stage of your life, leaving you disillusioned with God, if you will. #Quote by Matthew Davis
Villain quotes by Jerry Robinson
#52. So, I'm thinking of a name for a villain that has a sense of humor. I thought of 'The Joker' as a name, and as soon as I thought that, I associate it with the playing card, as my family had a tradition of champion playing; my brother was a contract champion bridge player. There were always cards around the house. #Quote by Jerry Robinson
Villain quotes by Julia Quinn
#53. The youngest one," she interrupted. "The youngest son, I mean. The one who is unmarried."
"I know who he is."
"Very well, then. What is wrong with him?" At that she cocked her head to the side and waited expectantly.
He thought for a moment. "Nothing."
"You - wait." She blinked. "Nothing?"
He shook his head, then shifted his weight a little; his good foot was beginning to fall asleep. "Nothing comes immediately to mind." It was true. She could do a good deal worse than Gregory Bridgerton.
"Really?" she asked suspiciously. "You find nothing at all objectionable about him."
Marcus pretended to think about this a bit longer. Clearly he was supposed to be playing a role here, probably that of the villain. Or if not that, then the grumpy old man. "I suppose he's a bit young," he said. #Quote by Julia Quinn
Villain quotes by Jacquel Chrissy May
#54. What if I can't be their hero? What if I'm destined to be the villain?~attributed to Harry Potter #Quote by Jacquel Chrissy May
Villain quotes by Colin Firth
#55. Whenever you take on playing a villain, he has to cease to be a villain to you. If you judge this man by his time, he's doing very little wrong. #Quote by Colin Firth
Villain quotes by Clive Barker
#56. I firmly believe that a story is only as good as the villain. #Quote by Clive Barker
Villain quotes by Sam Waterston
#57. I don't think playing a villain is my greatest talent. #Quote by Sam Waterston
Villain quotes by Stephen King
#58. But did not Shakespeare say a man can smile, and smile, and be a villain? #Quote by Stephen King
Villain quotes by Gisele Bundchen
#59. I'm not an actress, you know. I don't know what's going on. And I'm supposed to be the villain. #Quote by Gisele Bundchen
Villain quotes by Plato
#60. You say that you have a dog.

Yes, a villain of a one, said Ctesippus.
And he has puppies?
Yes, and they are very like himself.
And the dog is the father of them?
Yes, he said, I certainly saw him and the mother of the puppies come together.

And is he not yours?
To be sure he is.
Then he is a father, and he is yours; ergo, he is your father, and the puppies are your brothers. #Quote by Plato
Villain quotes by Nenia Campbell
#61. Gavin had thought tragedy suited her: a young Miss Havisham, wearing the moth-eaten tatters of her frayed hopes like a ravaged bride. She had thought at first that it was the chase he craved, or the thrill of conquest, but while both of those might have been true, it was her humiliation that got him off. Physical, psychological, sexual - his favorite games were the ones he played with her head. #Quote by Nenia Campbell
Villain quotes by Alberto Del Rio
#62. For me it's the same thing if the fans boo or not, because my role is the villain. I'm happy when you clap me though. #Quote by Alberto Del Rio
Villain quotes by Robert Cormier
#63. What have I done, Obie?"

Obie flung his hand in the air, the gesture encompassing all the rotten things that had occur under Archie's command, at Archie's direction. The ruined kids, the capsized hopes. Renault last fall and poor Tubs Casper and all the others including even the faculty. Like Brother Eugene.

"You know what you've done, Archie. I don't need to draw up a list-"

"You blame me for everything, right, Obie? You and Carter and all the others. Archie Costello, the bad guy. The villain. Archie, the bastard. Trinity would be such a beautiful place without Archie Costello. Right, Obie? But it's not me, Obie, it's not me...."

"Not you?" Obie cried, fury gathering in his throat, his chest, his guts. "What the hell do you mean, not you? This could have been a beautiful place to be, Archie. A beautiful time for all of us. Christ, who else, if not you?"

"Do you really want to know who?"

"Okay, who then?" Impatient with his crap, the old Archie crap.

"It's you, Obie. You and Carter and Bunting and Leon and everybody. But especially you, Obie. Nobody forced you to do anything, buddy. Nobody made you join the Vigils. Nobody twisted your arm to make you secretary of the Vigils. Nobody pain you to keep a notebook with all that crap about the students, all their weaknesses, soft points. The notebook made your job easier, didn't it, Obie? And what was your job? Finding the victims. You found them, Obie. Yo #Quote by Robert Cormier
Villain quotes by Randeep Hooda
#64. I don't play the role of a villain, really, but I like playing anti-hero kind of roles. I like characters where there's conflict, drama, and more personal investment than just being heroes. #Quote by Randeep Hooda
Villain quotes by William Shakespeare
#65. An evil soul producing holy witness
Is like a villain with a smiling cheek,
A goodly apple rotten at the heart. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Villain quotes by Jefferson Bass
#66. If you're going to play what-if
which, by the way, is a huge waste of time and energy, not to mention an act of supreme, center-of-the-universe narcissism
you have to play it both ways. If you're going to imagine yourself as an accidental villain, you have to give yourself equal time as an unwitting hero. As somebody who prevented God-knows-what dire disaster simply by doing exactly the things you did. #Quote by Jefferson Bass
Villain quotes by Jacki Weaver
#67. I usually do get to play the very sweet, charming roles ... but I'm not an obvious kind of villain. #Quote by Jacki Weaver
Villain quotes by Stephen Dorff
#68. I liked getting the best villain award. I thought that was funny. #Quote by Stephen Dorff
Villain quotes by Joe Abercrombie
#69. That was the difference between a hero and a villain, a soldier and a murderer, a victory and a crime. Which side of a river you called home. #Quote by Joe Abercrombie
Villain quotes by Maajid Nawaz
#70. President Barack Obama and many liberal-minded commentators have been hesitant to call this Islamist ideology by its proper name. They seem to fear that both Muslim communities and the religiously intolerant will hear the word "Islam" and simply assume that all Muslims are being held responsible for the excesses of the jihadist few.

I call this the Voldemort effect, after the villain in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter books. Many well-meaning people in Ms. Rowling's fictional world are so petrified of Voldemort's evil that they do two things: They refuse to call Voldemort by name, instead referring to "He Who Must Not Be Named," and they deny that he exists in the first place. Such dread only increases public hysteria, thus magnifying the appeal of Voldemort's power.

The same hysteria about Islamism is unfolding before our eyes. But no strategy intended to defeat Islamism can succeed if Islamism itself and its violent expression in jihadism are not first named, isolated and understood.

From: Maajid Nawaz's article titled, 'How to Beat Islamic State', December 11th, 2015. #Quote by Maajid Nawaz
Villain quotes by Lindsey Leavitt
#71. I guess it's hard to be the villain without a hero. #Quote by Lindsey Leavitt
Villain quotes by Peter Coyote
#72. I think you have a social responsibility as the villain, which is pretty different from the hero's responsibility. If you have any kind of a social or political conscience at all, the first thing you want to do is make malevolence recognizable to people, almost as a kind of teaching aid. #Quote by Peter Coyote
Villain quotes by K. Weikel
#73. Karika's hands aren't just stained with blood. They aren't just dirty. They're laden with the devil's fingerprints. #Quote by K. Weikel
Villain quotes by Catherynne M. Valente
#74. If you are a monster, stand up.
If you are a monster, a trickster, a fiend,
If you've built a steam-powered wishing machine
If you have a secret, a dark past, a scheme,
If you kidnap maidens or dabble in dreams
Come stand by me.

If you have been broken, stand up.
If you have been broken, abandoned, alone
If you have been starving, a creature of bone
If you live in a tower, a dungeon, a throne
If you weep for wanting, to be held, to be known,
Come stand by me.

If you are a savage, stand up.
If you are a witch, a dark queen, a black knight,
If you are a mummer, a pixie, a sprite,
If you are a pirate, a tomcat, a wright,
If you swear by the moon and you fight the hard fight,
Come stand by me.

If you are a devil, stand up.
If you are a villain, a madman, a beast,
If you are a strowler, a prowler, a priest,
If you are a dragon come sit at our feast,
For we all have stripes, and we all have horns,
We all have scales, tails, manes, claws and thorns
And here in the dark is where new worlds are born.
Come stand by me. #Quote by Catherynne M. Valente
Villain quotes by Sara Wolf
#75. Thinking and talking about love leads to Love, which is the enemy. Do not consort with the enemy. Even if those hot-ass actors in the movies make it look cuddly and nice and tempting, don't fall for it. It's the biggest bad in the world, the worst villain ever created by hormone-pumped pubescent morons. It's the Joker, Lex Luthor, that one overweight guy who's always messing with the Scooby-Doo gang. It's the final boss in the massive joke of a video game you call your life. #Quote by Sara Wolf
Villain quotes by Michael Fassbender
#76. Magneto has a whole lot of complexity to him. Emotionally, he's coming from a very damaged place. I like the ambivalence of it. I want the audience leaving the theater wondering, asking the questions themselves rather than being spoon-fed like a lot of these super-villain characters. #Quote by Michael Fassbender
Villain quotes by Atul Gawande
#77. Are doctors who make mistakes villains? No, because then we all are. #Quote by Atul Gawande
Villain quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#78. But I forgot to tell him," I said quietly, opening the door, "that the villain is usually the person who locks up the maiden and throws away the key."
I shrugged. "He was the one who let me out.". #Quote by Sarah J. Maas
Villain quotes by John Bradshaw
#79. Those who must control everything fear being vulnerable. Why? Because to be vulnerable opens one up to being shamed. All my life I used up my energies by always having to be guarded. This was a mighty waste of time and energy. The fear was that I would be exposed. And when exposed, all would see that I was flawed and defective as a person - an imposter. Control is a way to ensure that no one can ever shame us again. It involves controlling our own thoughts, expressions, feelings and actions. And it involves attempting to control other people's thoughts, feelings and actions. Control is the ultimate villain in destroying intimacy. We cannot share freely unless we are equal. When one person controls another, equality is ruptured. #Quote by John Bradshaw
Villain quotes by Charlotte McPherren
#80. What are you smiling about?" Rider asked. Willow glanced at him and flushed. "That must have been some daydream you were having."
If you only knew, Willow thought.
"Come on, Freckles, it's time you get back to the ranch. I have work to do."
His big work-roughened hand swallowed hers as he helped her to her feet. Against her will, her body responded to its warmth. She snatched her hand away, garnering a searching expression in his dark brown eyes.
She quickly excused her reaction with a flirty smile. "I promised not to touch you, remember?"
"Yes,but I dont't recall promising not to touch you." He wiggled his brows in a comical imitation of an evil villain in a bad play.
She laughed and shook her head. "Help me mount Sugar before I decide to wipe that grin off your face."
"And how do you propose to do that?" he asked, retrieving the horses and returning to he side. He bent down, cupped his hands, and boosted her into the mare's saddle. "You weren't planning on slapping my face again, I hope," he said, reaching for Sultan's reins.
"Oh,no, nothing like that." She batted her lashes coquettishly, the affect intensified by the naughty twinkle in her eyes.
"You better stop looking at me like that, or I'll have to follow Sultan's example and break down your door tonight."
"I don't think Juan would be too happy about making me two new doors. It wasn't easy explaining what happened to the first one! #Quote by Charlotte McPherren
Villain quotes by Holly Black
#81. I know how to be the witness to her grief. I don't know how to be this kind of villain. #Quote by Holly Black
Villain quotes by T.J. Kirk
#82. In an evil society a villain is the hero, because only the villain can speak the truth. #Quote by T.J. Kirk
Villain quotes by Laura Ziskin
#83. In my world, the hero always defeats the villain, the boy always gets the girl, and cancer is no more, #Quote by Laura Ziskin
Villain quotes by Ana Layevska
#84. When I play a villain, I usually get home and sleep straight through the night. It's physically and emotionally draining. #Quote by Ana Layevska
Villain quotes by Amy Pascal
#85. The most important thing in the job is to make movies about women where they are characters that have consequences in the story. They can be villains, they can be protagonists, I don't care but their movements, their actions what they do in the plot has to actually matter. #Quote by Amy Pascal
Villain quotes by Azar Nafisi
#86. In class, we were discussing the concept of the villain in the novel. I had mentioned that Humbert was a villain because he lacked curiosity about other people and their lives, even about the person he loved most, Lolita. Humbert, like most dictators, was interested only in his own vision of other people. He had created the Lolita he desired, and would not budge from that image. #Quote by Azar Nafisi
Villain quotes by Brandon Mull
#87. Each human being has significant potential for light and darkness," Grandpa continued. "Over a lifetime, we get a lot of practice leaning toward one or the other. Having made different choices, a renowned hero could have been a wretched villain. #Quote by Brandon Mull
Villain quotes by Katherine Arden
#88. Other than her homework, Ollie was carrying Captain Blood by Rafael Sabatini, a broken-spined paperback that she'd dug out of he dad's bookshelves. She mostly liked it. Peter Blood outsmarted everyone, which was a feature she liked in heroes, although she wished Peter were a girl, or the villain were a girl, or someone in the book besides his boat and his girlfriend (both named Arabella) were a girl. #Quote by Katherine Arden
Villain quotes by Joey Logano
#89. Some of the fans look at me as a villain or not a nice guy for some reason. I don't feel like that's the case, personally. #Quote by Joey Logano
Villain quotes by Oliver Reed
#90. I'm not a villain, I've never hurt anyone. I'm just a tawdry character who explodes now and again. #Quote by Oliver Reed
Villain quotes by James S.A. Corey
#91. What?" Holden said, a brief image of the asteroid sneaking up like a cartoon villain on the two circling warships popping into his head. "Yeah, #Quote by James S.A. Corey
Villain quotes by Hermann Goring
#92. We will go down in history either as the world's greatest statesmen or its worst villains. #Quote by Hermann Goring
Villain quotes by Donald Jeffries
#93. She laughed again. "You must go to the movies a lot. This is not Dracula, and the villain isn't Bela Lugosi. They took a good friend away from me, and they know I know. But, at any rate, I did try to find her boyfriend the day after she disappeared. I knew where he lived and I went there. His landlord said he'd left unexpectedly and he didn't know where he'd gone. Lucky for me he wasn't there, I suppose." She took another deep breath and squinted at her watch. "Oh, my Lord. I didn't realize it was that late. I really must be going. #Quote by Donald Jeffries
Villain quotes by Steven Pinker
#94. Day-to-day political debates are also contests between metaphors. Citizens are not rational and pay no attention to facts, except as they fit into frames, and the frames are "fixed in the neural structures of [their] brains." In George W. Bush's first term, for example, he promised tax relief, which frames taxes as an affliction, the reliever as a hero, and anyone obstructing him as a villain. #Quote by Steven Pinker
Villain quotes by Roseanna M. White
#95. You'll either be a villain or a hero, Phil. Try to pick the right one, will you? #Quote by Roseanna M. White
Villain quotes by Saundra Mitchell
#96. Because when I can believe in a villain, I can fear them. My pulse races, I worry about the heroes, I read through my fingers, and flinch when disaster strikes. I exhale my relief when all is well, and I really feel it when they fall in love. No matter how fantastic the world, how unique the magic that's written into it- I have to believe in the characters before I can believe in their gifts. #Quote by Saundra Mitchell
Villain quotes by Gina Marinello-Sweeney
#97. A girl locked in a tower with no life experience. But, you know, Rebecca ... this isn't a fairy tale. Your tower will never protect you from the darkness outside."
"And your tower will always be a prison," I said softly. #Quote by Gina Marinello-Sweeney
Villain quotes by Debra Anastasia
#98. Time was a villain who couldn't be forgotten, but infamy would last forever. #Quote by Debra Anastasia
Villain quotes by Alec Baldwin
#99. If I add a negative element to the piece, you are not a villain necessarily but you bring a stronger, more negative aspect to the film, and if you don't do that, the film goes off balance where you can't worry about likability, you have to come in and play the part the best way that you can. #Quote by Alec Baldwin
Villain quotes by Gayle Lynds
#100. I've seen unpublished manuscripts where the writer doesn't know they are making fun of the villain - but they are. If you aren't afraid of your villain, how can your hero be afraid? #Quote by Gayle Lynds
Villain quotes by J.C. Wickhart
#101. Typically in a world that has shunned goodness and morals, the villain is the hero. #Quote by J.C. Wickhart
Villain quotes by Frost Kay
#102. All that time she spent fighting Tehl, making him the villain, blaming him, and yet wasn't the monster of her story, he was the hero. He'd always been the hero, albeit and awkward one. #Quote by Frost Kay
Villain quotes by L.J. Shen
#103. I used to think of you as a villain, but you're not my villain. You're your own villain. #Quote by L.J. Shen
Villain quotes by Peter Benchley
#104. No, the shark in an updated JAWS could not be the villain; it would have to be written as the victim, for, worldwide, sharks are much more the oppressed than the oppressors. #Quote by Peter Benchley
Villain quotes by Roshani Chokshi
#105. Before I left Alaka, I told Vikram I didn't know myself. Now I was
staring at the depths of what that meant. Heroine. Savior. Villain. What were those words but different fistfuls of a tale that all depended on who was doing the telling? You see, a story is not just a thing told to a child before sleep. A story is control. I saw it now. Felt the talons of that truth scrape through me. #Quote by Roshani Chokshi
Villain quotes by Wildbow
#106. It's for love, in the end. Pettiest of all pursuits. Arrogance, greed, even revenge… they're nobler, trust me. I've walked all those roads. But love? It twists all the other things. Makes you misstep, makes you irrational, makes you impatient, above all. #Quote by Wildbow
Villain quotes by Sarah Rees Brennan
#107. Elliot was left to trail behind. As he did, he thought about Luke talking about literary tropes - the fearless hero, the valiant heroine, and where did it all leave him? Sidekick: a horrible indignity, Elliot refused to accept it. And the other idea was some sort of lurking, jealous figure: an Iago, a pathetic pseudo-villain waiting in the wings to plot and bring the hero down. He wasn't going to plot against Luke, who had dumb daffodil hair and said "tropez," for God's sake. #Quote by Sarah Rees Brennan
Villain quotes by Mason Cooley
#108. The tragic hero prefers death to prudence. The comedian prefers playing tricks to winning. Only the villain really plays to win. #Quote by Mason Cooley
Villain quotes by Coco J. Ginger
#109. Every fairytale has a villain. All high quality happy endings involve a black-hearted monster. I just didn't want you to be mine. #Quote by Coco J. Ginger
Villain quotes by Criss Jami
#110. Heroic ambition seemed to have been the cause of much of the world's pain then - quite like it is now. No villain ever saw himself a villain: he only saw himself a hero; and this goes just as no hero ever saw himself a hero: he simply did what he had to do. No true hero initially sets out with intentions of being deemed a hero. #Quote by Criss Jami
Villain quotes by Charles Lee
#111. I am. That has not changed. I am the villain. I am the one you should curse, not praise. I am no hero. Heroes look to fix what lies before them and head home after the leak is patched. A villain will remain poking and prodding his achievement long after they've won. Evil never sleeps. It's always looking for more ways to expand on its conquest. #Quote by Charles Lee
Villain quotes by L.J. Shen
#112. I want your ass. Happy? Want it with the scars. With the fucked-up, tragic story. With every fiber of my body. I want to fuck you, and own you, and bruise you, and save you. But I can't do any of those things. Why? Because you'd hate me afterwards, and that's a fact, not a speculation. Mark my words. For reasons I can't tell you right now, fucking you will break you and ruin me. And I may be a bastard, but I'm not the fucking villain. #Quote by L.J. Shen
Villain quotes by Tom Hiddleston
#113. Every villain is a hero in his own mind. #Quote by Tom Hiddleston
Villain quotes by Therese Anne Fowler
#114. Even there in the midst of my belief that there was nothing worth salvaging, I could feel the truth of his words. Our circus act, begun at the Biltmore Hotel four years earlier, had mostly been a success. To admit as much, though, would be to undermine my argument. He would take the admission and twist it around in some way that would make him the victim and me the villain. I couldn't say what I knew: that I was the villain, too. #Quote by Therese Anne Fowler
Villain quotes by Sherwood Smith
#115. The coach slowed. A moment later the door opened.
"Countess," someone unfamiliar said.
Feeling hot and cold at once, I slid from my pillow seat to the floor of the carriage and pushed my left leg carefully out, followed by my right. Then, sitting in the doorway, I looked up at two enormous soldiers, who reached down and took hold of my arms, one each. Positioned between them in a tight grip, I could make a pretense of walking.
They fell in the midst of two rows of guards, all of whom seemed to have been selected for their height and breadth. To make me look ridiculous? I thought, and forced my chin up proudly.
Remember, you are Meliara Astiar of Tlanth, your mother was descended from the greatest of Remalna's royal families, and you're about to face a tyrant and a thief, I told myself firmly. Whatever happened, whatever I said, might very well get carried back to Branaric. I owed it to the people at home not to rug-crawl to this villain.
So I exhorted myself as we progressed up a broad, sweeping marble stair. Two magnificent doors were flung open by flunkies in livery more fabulous than anything anyone in Tlanth--of high degree or low--had ever worn in my lifetime, and klunk-klunk-klunk, the rhythmic thud of boot heels impacted the marble floor of a great hall. High carved beams supported a distant ceiling. Windows filled with colored glass were set just under the roof, and beneath them hung flags--some new, some ancient. Under the flags, scattered al #Quote by Sherwood Smith
Villain quotes by Anurag Kashyap
#116. Cinema is much more than heroes and villains. #Quote by Anurag Kashyap
Villain quotes by Jane Austen
#117. With a perversity of judgement, which must be attributed to his not having by Nature a very strong head, the Graces, the Spirit, the Sagacity, and the Perseverance, of the Villain of the Story outweighed all his absurdities and all his Atrocities with Sir Edward. With him, such Conduct was Genius, Fire and Feeling. It interested and inflamed him; and he was always more anxious for its Success and mourned over its Discomfitures with more Tenderness than could ever have been contemplated by the Authors. #Quote by Jane Austen
Villain quotes by Michel Gondry
#118. I don't like movies that are too manipulative. A lot of movies thrive on really pushing your buttons and making you hate the villain. #Quote by Michel Gondry
Villain quotes by Bob DeMarco
#119. I am saddened when I hear these words -this is not the person I knew - because those words objectify the person suffering from Alzheimer's. When you objectify a person you also dehumanize them. Once dehumanized the person becomes a villain. #Quote by Bob DeMarco
Villain quotes by Benjamin Thompson
#120. So great is the effect of cleanliness upon man, that it extends even to his moral character. Virtue never dwelt long with filth; nor do I believe there ever was a person scrupulously: attentive to cleanliness, who was a consummate villain. #Quote by Benjamin Thompson
Villain quotes by Michael Douglas
#121. Oh, I get it, it's simple. PG means the hero gets the girl, 15 means that the villain gets the girl, and 18 means everybody gets the girl. #Quote by Michael Douglas
Villain quotes by Sosuke Aizen
#122. The Sōsuke Aizen you knew...never existed to begin with. #Quote by Sosuke Aizen
Villain quotes by Andy Serkis
#123. What I'm saying is people like Hoodwink are not kind of evil villains, they're part of humanity. We can choose to disassociate ourselves from them and we can choose to pretend they're not there, but they are. We're all together in this. #Quote by Andy Serkis
Villain quotes by Edward Zwick
#124. I think it's too easy often to find a villain out of the headlines and to then repeat that villainy again and again and again. You know, traditionally, America has always looked to scapegoat someone as the boogie man. #Quote by Edward Zwick
Villain quotes by Khalid Abdul Muhammad
#125. Some people have said Brother Khalid was a villain, but we know he was a victim in a world that is evil. Racism and injustice are the real villains here. #Quote by Khalid Abdul Muhammad
Villain quotes by Len Wein
#126. The villain is always more entertaining because he has fewer limitations. The hero is bound by honor, by justice and by the law, sometimes. #Quote by Len Wein
Villain quotes by Terry Deary
#127. I'm not a historian, and I wouldn't want to be. I want to change the world. Attack the elite. Overturn the hierarchy. Look at my stories and you'll notice that the villains are always, always, those in power. The heroes are the little people. I hate the establishment. Always have, always will. #Quote by Terry Deary
Villain quotes by Haruki Murakami
#128. What the world needs is a set villain that people can point at and say, It's all your fault! #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Villain quotes by Graham Yost
#129. No one sees themself as the villain in their story. #Quote by Graham Yost
Villain quotes by Rob Lowe
#130. As a person navigating the waters of public scrutiny, you are often unable to hold on to personal heroes or villains. Inevitably you will meet your hero, and he may turn out to be less than impressive, while your villain turns out to be the coolest cat you've ever met. #Quote by Rob Lowe
Villain quotes by Alexander Pope
#131. Calm, thinking villains, whom no faith could fix, Of crooked counsels and dark politics. #Quote by Alexander Pope
Villain quotes by Jon Stewart
#132. You guys (Boko Haram) are trying so hard to convince everybody that you're such badasses. But all you've done with this kidnapping is highlight who the real badasses are, the kids you kidnapped. Compared to a teenager who knows that her desire for an education could get her dragged into a snake infested jungle to be sold as a bribe to some demented, stick-chewing cartoon villain but still gets up and goes to class everyday, fully aware of that danger - compared to their courage - I'd say Boko Haram is a bunch of little girls. But, you know what? You don't deserve that compliment. #Quote by Jon Stewart
Villain quotes by William A. Niskanen
#133. A nation that expects the government to prevent churches from burning, to control the price of bread or gasoline, to secure every job, and to find some villain for every dramatic accident risks an even larger loss of life and liberty. #Quote by William A. Niskanen
Villain quotes by Libba Bray
#134. Power changes everything till it is difficult to say who are the heroes and who the villains. #Quote by Libba Bray
Villain quotes by William Shakespeare

Villain quotes by Nicholas Lea
#136. It's not that fun to just play a villain, without any reasoning behind it. #Quote by Nicholas Lea
Villain quotes by James Purefoy

Villain quotes by Robert Towne
#138. Every search for a hero must begin with something which every hero requires - a villain. #Quote by Robert Towne
Villain quotes by Josephine Angelini

Villain quotes by Luke Taylor
#140. A story is only as good as its villain. #Quote by Luke Taylor
Villain quotes by Joe Abercrombie
#141. But you love to play the good man, don't you? Do you know what's worse than a villain? A villain who thinks he's a hero. A man like that, there's nothing he won't do and he'll always find himself an excuse. #Quote by Joe Abercrombie
Villain quotes by Ian McKellen
#142. Tony Blair is not a villain, but he's played the part very well. #Quote by Ian McKellen
Villain quotes by Sandra Gulland
#143. The Confessions of Catherine de Medici is a dramatic, epic novel of an all-too-human woman whose strength and passion propelled her into the center of grand events. Meticulously-researched, this engrossing novel offers a fresh portrait of a queen who has too often been portrayed as a villain. Bravo Mr. Gortner! #Quote by Sandra Gulland
Villain quotes by Raziel Reid
#144. Go ahead, blame the victim! The villain is my favourite role to play. #Quote by Raziel Reid
Villain quotes by Catullus
#145. We should live, my Lesbia, and love
And value all the talk of stricter
Old men at a single penny.
Suns can set and rise again;
For us, once our brief light has set,
There's one unending night for sleeping.
Give me a thousand kisses, then a hundred,
Then another thousand, then a second hundred,
Then still another thousand, then a hundred;
Then, when we've made many thousands,
We'll muddle them so as not to know
Or lest some villain overlook us
Knowing the total of our kisses.
(Translated by Guy Lee) #Quote by Catullus
Villain quotes by William Shakespeare
#146. Ay, that I had not done a thousand more.
Even now I curse the day - and yet, I think,
Few come within the compass of my curse, -
Wherein I did not some notorious ill,
As kill a man, or else devise his death,
Ravish a maid, or plot the way to do it,
Accuse some innocent and forswear myself,
Set deadly enmity between two friends,
Make poor men's cattle break their necks;
Set fire on barns and hay-stacks in the night,
And bid the owners quench them with their tears.
Oft have I digg'd up dead men from their graves,
And set them upright at their dear friends' doors,
Even when their sorrows almost were forgot;
And on their skins, as on the bark of trees,
Have with my knife carved in Roman letters,
'Let not your sorrow die, though I am dead.'
Tut, I have done a thousand dreadful things
As willingly as one would kill a fly,
And nothing grieves me heartily indeed
But that I cannot do ten thousand more. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Villain quotes by Ben Kingsley
#147. There is always something about the villains that I'm able to play, quote unquote, that isn't villainous. #Quote by Ben Kingsley
Villain quotes by Mitch Rowland
#148. We are all entitled to make mistakes, but what separates a hero from a villain is how we learn from those mistakes. A villain will see his past as a weakness to be erased. A hero will see his past as experience, to be acknowledged and incorporated into the present. #Quote by Mitch Rowland
Villain quotes by Lloyd Alexander
#149. I cannot forgive myself for what I did. It has long been one of my strictest principles not to interfere with the life of any individual, let alone attempt to shorten it. If an exception were to be made, Dr. Helvitius would surely qualify. It might be argued that, having neither scruples nor conscience, he had no claim upon the conscience of someone else - least of all, his intended victims. But that is a question to be resolved by a judgment higher than mine. In the event, my responsibility toward Vesper outweighed every other consideration.
I can state in all honesty: I meant only to wound him.
I cannot forgive myself - for missing the villain completely. #Quote by Lloyd Alexander

Villain quotes by Emery Rose
#152. She made me wish for something I'd never wanted before. To be the hero in someone's fairy tale instead of the villain. #Quote by Emery Rose
Villain quotes by Marissa Meyer
#153. Maybe Ace really was a villain. Or maybe he was a visionary. Maybe there's not much of a difference. #Quote by Marissa Meyer
Villain quotes by Jeannette Walls
#154. Some people who've read my story think I had a terrible childhood and that I was neglected or even abused, while others feel that my parents, while certainly flawed, also had truly wonderful qualities. And that's the way it should be, because in real life two people can look at the same president and one will see a hero and the other a villain. #Quote by Jeannette Walls
Villain quotes by Carolyn Lee Adams
#155. When he unleashes on her everything falls together. Like a crick in the neck snapped into place, the boy's brain pops and is put right. It is a beautiful undoing, a beautiful becoming. He doesn't stop to think about it when the punches follow her down to the ground. He doesn't stop to notice when she goes still or when the pool of blood under her head pillows out into a great, liquid heart. He doesn't stop until he's pulled off her and he doesn't start to think again until that night, when he's back at home. For hours and hours his brain stays beautifully popped into place. #Quote by Carolyn Lee Adams
Villain quotes by Roger Craig Smith
#156. The only way to describe my involvement in 'Planes' is that it's an absolute dream come true for me. Getting to be a bad guy in any project is fun, let alone being a Disney villain. I can't imagine anything getting better than that! #Quote by Roger Craig Smith
Villain quotes by Karen DeCrow
#157. Operas elucidate, in a way sometimes absent in other theatrical productions, the very human fact that in every hero, there is a thread of duplicity. In every villain, there is another side to consider: We don't have to like him or her, but we are compelled to think about motivation. #Quote by Karen DeCrow
Villain quotes by Jonathan Freeman
#158. Everything about playing a villain is appealing to me. #Quote by Jonathan Freeman
Villain quotes by James Hong
#159. As long as I have the talent and there's a demand for the old Chinese man - whether he's a philosopher, or a master, or an old-time restaurant owner, or a villain, or a so-called good guy - I will always be working. #Quote by James Hong
Villain quotes by Ellen Hopkins

Villain quotes by Voltaire

Villain quotes by Christopher Walken
#162. One thing that's happened to me is I've been around a long time and I've played a lot of villains and so forth. I think it had to do with, well one thing is that I looked younger than I was for a long time. Now I think I'm suddenly starting to play people's father. #Quote by Christopher Walken
Villain quotes by Donal Logue
#163. It's nice to be in a world where you're not going to exhaust storylines with potential villains. #Quote by Donal Logue
Villain quotes by Connie Brockway
#164. You can figure out what the villain fears by his choice of weapons. #Quote by Connie Brockway
Villain quotes by Drew Goddard
#165. The greatest villain of all time is The Joker - he always has been, and I don't know anyone who's not going to have Heath Ledger's performance burnt into their brains for the rest of their lives. #Quote by Drew Goddard
Villain quotes by Truman Capote
#166. If concealment is the single weapon, then a villain is never a villain; one smiles to the very end. #Quote by Truman Capote
Villain quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#167. Why, Sam," he said, "to hear you somehow makes me as merry as if the
story was already written. But you've left out one of the chief characters; Samwise the stout hearted. 'I want to hear more about Sam, dad. Why didn't they put in more of his talk, dad? That's what I like, it makes me laugh. And Frodo wouldn't have got far without Sam, would he, dad?' "

"Now, Mr. Frodo," said Sam, "you shouldn't make fun. I was serious."

"So was I," said Frodo, "and so I am. We're going on a bit too fast. You and
I, Sam, are still stuck in the worst places of the story, and it is all too likely that some will say at this point 'Shut the book now, dad; we don't want to read any more'."

"Maybe," said Sam, "but I wouldn't be one to say that. Things done and
over and made into part of the great tales are different. Why, even Gollum might be good in a tale, better than he is to have by you, anyway. And he used to like tales himself once, by his own account. I wonder if he thinks he's the hero or the villain?"
"Gollum!" he called. "Would you like to be the hero, now where's he got to
again? #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien

Villain quotes by Dustin Lance Black

Villain quotes by A.J. Hackwith

Villain quotes by Kristine Wyllys
#180. Cancer, he'd said near the end, is the great equalizer. It doesn't care who you are or what kind of salary you make. It doesn't give one damn if you are a good person or a bad one. It is the ultimate villain because it's not capable of mercy. It only knows how to destroy and that's exactly what it does. Destroys everything. #Quote by Kristine Wyllys
Villain quotes by Robert M. Pirsig
#181. People arrive at a factory and perform a totally meaningless task from eight to five without question because the structure demands that it be that way. There's no villain, no "mean guy" who wants them to live meaningless lives, it's just that the structure, the system demands it and no one is willing to take on the formidable task of changing the structure just because it is meaningless. #Quote by Robert M. Pirsig
Villain quotes by Robertson Davies
#182. Who are you? Where do you fit into poetry and myth? Do you know who I think you are, Ramsay? I think you are Fifth Business. You don't know what that is? Well, in opera in a permanent company of the kind we keep up in Europe you must have a prima donna --always a soprano, always the heroine, often a fool; and a tenor who always plays the lover to her; and then you must have a contralto, who is a rival to the soprano, or a sorceress or something; and a basso, who is the villain or the rival or whatever threatens the tenor.
"So far, so good. But you cannot make a plot work without another man, and he is usually a baritone, and he is called in the profession Fifth Business, because he is the odd man out, the person who has no opposite of the other sex. And you must have Fifth Business because he is the one who knows the secret of the hero's birth, or comes to the assistance of the heroine when she thinks all is lost, or keeps the hermitess in her cell, or may even be the cause of somebody's death if that is part of the plot. The prima donna and the tenor, the contralto and the basso, get all the best music and do all the spectacular things, but you cannot manage the plot without Fifth Business! It is not spectacular, but it is a good line of work, I can tell you, and those who play it sometimes have a career that outlasts the golden voices. Are you Fifth Business? You had better find out. #Quote by Robertson Davies

Villain quotes by Kim Jee-woon
#184. Of course, 'The Last Stand' has a villain who is traveling to the border to fulfill his own desires, but it's more about the main character. The Sheriff putting a stop to this villain and defending his town. 'The Last Stand' is more about protecting something. About protecting a value. #Quote by Kim Jee-woon

Villain quotes by Chinua Achebe
#187. Paradoxically, a saint like [Albert] Schweitzer can give one a lot more trouble than King Leopold II, villain of unmitigated guilt, because along with doing good and saving African lives Schweitzer also managed to announce that the African was indeed his brother, but only his junior brother. #Quote by Chinua Achebe
Villain quotes by Wendy Heard

Villain quotes by Clive Barker
#189. I can certainly throw out some observation about the process of creating which may be of use. Firstly, it's the best & the worst of worlds, because the only fuel you have to make the fire blaze on the page / screen is the stuff of your own being. An artist consumes his or herself in the act of making art. I can feel that consumption even now, sitting here at my desk at the end of a working day. In order to generate the ideas that I have set on the page for the last 10 or 11 hours I have burned the fuel of my own history. This is, obviously a double-edged sword. In order to give, the artist must take from himself. That's the deal. And it's very important to me that the work I do is the best I can make it, because I know what is being burned up to create. As the villain of Sacrament says: living & dying, we feed the fire. #Quote by Clive Barker
Villain quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#190. But the worst enemy you can meet will always be yourself; you lie in wait for yourself in caverns and forests. Lonely one, you are going the way to yourself! And your way goes past yourself, and past your seven devils! You will be a heretic to yourself and witch and soothsayer and fool and doubter and unholy one and villain. You must be ready to burn yourself in your own flame: how could you become new, if you had not first become ashes? #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Villain quotes by Michelle Hodkin

Villain quotes by Jim Butcher
#192. No one is an unjust villain in his own mind. Even - perhaps even especially - those who are the worst of us. Some of the cruelest tyrants in history were motivated by noble ideals, or made choices that they would call 'hard but necessary steps' for the good of their nation. We're all the hero of our own story. #Quote by Jim Butcher
Villain quotes by Kate Walbert

Villain quotes by Callie Khouri
#195. You can't do a movie without villains. You have to have something for the heroines or anti-heroines to be up against, and I wasn't going to contrive some monstrous female, but even if this were the most men-bashing movie ever made-let all us women get guns and kill men-it wouldn't even begin to make up for the 99% of all movies where the women are there to be caricatured as bimbos or to be skinned and decapitated. If men feel uncomfortable in the audience it is because they are identifying with the wrong character. #Quote by Callie Khouri
Villain quotes by Susan Sarandon
#196. When Alan Rickman, a dear friend of mine, played villains, he always made it complicated. He didn't redeem what they did, but he made you feel that it was hard for them to be so horrible. #Quote by Susan Sarandon

Villain quotes by Jason Segel
#198. I would love to play a villain someday in that I think that what I've done with my whole career is walk this tightrope between charming and creepy, and I always fall on the charming side. I'd like to fall on the creepy side and be like one of those scary old men, like really charming villains. #Quote by Jason Segel

#200. Leadership is responsibility.
There comes a point when one must make a decision. Are YOU willing to do what it takes to push the right buttons to elevate those around you? If the answer is YES, are you willing to push the right buttons even if it means being perceived as the villain? Here's where the true responsibility of being a leader lies. Sometimes you must prioritize the success of the team ahead of how your own image is perceived. The ability to elevate those around you is more than simply sharing the ball or making teammates feel a certain level of comfort. It's pushing them to find their inner beast, even if they end up resenting you for it at the time.
I'd rather be perceived as a winner than a good teammate. I wish they both went hand in hand all the time but that's just not reality. I have nothing in common with lazy people who blame others for their lack of success. Great things come from hard work and perseverance. No excuses.
This is my way. It might not be right for YOU but all I can do is share my thoughts. It's on YOU to figure out which leadership style suits you best.
Will check back in with you soon.. Till then #Quote by Anonymous
