I see a beautiful city and a brilliant people rising from this abyss. I see the lives for which I laid 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.
Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities
You didn’t think I’d risk losing the battle for Gotham’s soul in a fist fight with you? No. You need an ace in the hole. Mine’s Harvey.
The Joker, The Dark Knight(2008)
Calm down doctor now is not not the time for fear,
that comes later.
Bane, The Dark Knight Rises
You either die a hero or live long enough to become a villain.
The Dark knight
