“You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.” — Harvey Dent


Batman: A hero can be anyone. Even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a young boy’s shoulders to let him know that the world hadn’t ended.


Catwoman: My mother warned me about getting into cars with strange men.

Batman: This isn’t a car.


The Joker: This is what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object. You truly are incorruptible, aren’t you? You won’t kill me out of some misplaced sense of self-righteousness. And I won’t kill you because you’re just too much fun. I think you and I are destined to do this forever.


Harvey Dent: You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.


Jim Gordon: He’s the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we’ll hunt him. Because he can take it. Because he’s not our hero. He’s a silent guardian, a watchful protector. A dark knight.


Bruce Wayne: People are dying, Alfred. What would you have me do?


Alfred Pennyworth: Endure, Master Wayne. Take it. They’ll hate you for it, but that’s the point of Batman, he can be the outcast. He can make the choice that no one else can make, the right choice.


Harvey Dent: The night is darkest just before the dawn. And I promise you, the dawn is coming.


“The training is nothing! The will is everything! The will to act.”

– Henri Ducard


“Why do we fall? So we can learn to pick ourselves back up.”



If you’re good at something, never do it for free.

-The Joker


“It’s not who we are underneath, but what we do that defines us.”


Sometimes the truth isn’t good enough, sometimes people deserve more. Sometimes people deserve to have their faith rewarded



If you make yourself more than just a man, if you devote yourself to an ideal, and if they can’t stop you, then you become something else entirely… Legend Mr Wayne.

– Henri Ducard


“I see a beautiful city and a brilliant people rising from this abyss. I see the lives for which I lay down my life, peaceful, useful, prosperous and happy. I see that I hold a sanctuary in their hearts, and in the hearts of their descendants, generations hence. It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known.”


“Here’s my card”

-The Joker


Selina Kyle: There’s a storm coming. 


Bruce Wayne: You sound like you’re looking forward to it. 


Selina Kyle: I’m adaptable. 


“Very poor choice of Words”

– The Joker ”
