You will give the people of Earth an ideal to strive towards. They will race behind you. They will stumble. They will fall. But in time, they will join you in the sun. In time, you will help them accomplish wonders.Jor-El, (to Kal)
You just have to decide what kind of man you want to grow up to be. Because whoever that man is, good character or bad, he’s gonna change the world.Jonathan Kent, (to Clark)
Men fall from the sky and gods hurl thunderbolts. Innocents die. That’s how it starts. The fever, the rage, the feeling of powerlessness that turns good men… cruel.Alfred Pennyworth
Be their hero. Be their monument, be their angel, be anything they need you to be. Or be none of it. You don’t owe this world a thing. You never did.Martha Kent, (to Clark)
Huh? What was that? I should kill everyone and escape? Sorry. The voices. I’m kidding! Jeez! That’s not what they really said.Harley Quinn
Darkness, the truest darkness, is not the absence of light. It is the conviction that the light will never return. But the light always returns, to show us things familiar. Home, family, and things entirely new, or long overlooked. It shows us new possibilities and challenges us to pursue them. This time, the light shone on the heroes, coming out of the shadows to tell us we won’t be alone again. Our darkness was deep and seemed to swallow all hope. But these heroes were here the whole time, to remind us that hope is real, that you can see it. All you have to do is look, up in the sky.Lois Lane
If you want boys to respect you, you have to show them that you’re serious. Blow something up. Shoot someone.Harley Quinn
This world was a beautiful place just as it was, and you cannot have it all. You can only have the truth. And the truth is enough. The truth is beautiful.Diana Prince
I cherish peace with all my heart. I don’t care how many men, women, and children I need to kill to get it.Peacemaker
When your taste in men is as bad as mine, they don’t just go away quietly. They slash your tires and they kill your dogs and tell you that the music you like ain’t real music at all. And all the cruelty tears you apart after a while.Harley Quinn
Rats are the lowliest and most despised of all creatures, my love. If they have purpose, so do we all.Ratcatcher, (Ratcatcher 2: Why rats, Papa?)
Can you maybe up the contrast on the X-ray a little more to show the definition in my muscles? This makes me look like one of those guys who works out only thinking about bulk. I put a lot of time into my small muscle groups, and according to this, it was just wasted effort.Christopher Smith, (to doctor), S1.Ep1: A Whole New Whirled
The mind is a den of scorpions better left running from, not towards.Adrian Chase, S1.Ep6: Murn After Reading
One of the things us warriors seldom talk about is how often people s*** themselves when they die. It’s a touch of gray in the white cloud of kicking ass.Christopher Smith, S1.Ep8: It's Cow or Never
