Top 10 Quotes From The Dark Knight Trilogy

If you know anything about me at all, you know that my love for Batman knows no bounds. With that being said, after rewatching The Dark Knight Trilogy for the second one-hundredth time, I have finally decided to rank the top ten quotes from one of the most quotable trilogies of all times.

10. “One day you catch yourself wishing the person you loved had never existed, so you’d be spared your pain.” – Ra’s Al Ghul (Batman Begins)

Ras number 10

9. “Bruce. Deep down you may still be that same great kid you used to be. But it’s not who you are underneath, it’s what you do that defines you.” – Rachel Dawes (Batman Begins)

Rachel number 9

8. “When a forest grows too wild, a purging fire is inevitable and natural.” – Ra’s Al Ghul (Batman Begins)

Rahs number 8

7. “You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.” – Harvey Dent (The Dark Knight)


6. “The night is darkest just before the dawn.” – Harvey Dent (The Dark Knight)


5. “You start pretending to have fun, you might even have a little by accident.” – Alfred Pennyworth (Batman Begins)


4. “They need you right now, but when they don’t, they’ll cast you out, like a leper. You see, their morals, their code, it’s a bad joke. Dropped at the first sign of trouble. They’re only as good as the world allows them to be. I’ll show you. When the chips are down, these civilized people, they’ll eat each other. See, I’m not a monster. I’m just ahead of the curve.” – The Joker (The Dark Knight)


4. “Theatricality and deception are powerful agents to the uninitiated… but we are initiated, aren’t we Bruce? Members of the League of Shadows! You think darkness is your ally. But you merely adopted the dark; I was born in it, molded by it. I didn’t see the light until I was already a man, by then it was nothing to me but blinding.” – Bane (The Dark Knight Rises)


3. “If you’re good at something, never do it for free.” – The Joker (The Dark Knight)


2. “People need dramatic examples to shake them out of apathy, and I can’t do that as Bruce Wayne. As a man, I’m flesh and blood; I can be ignored, I can be destroyed. But as a symbol… as a symbol I can be incorruptible. I can be everlasting.” – Bruce Wayne (Batman Begins)


1. “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. ” – Batman (The Dark Knight Rises)
