Every Fairy Tale Needs a Good Old-Fashioned Villain

NOTE: Inspired by/taken from quotes of modern, pop-culture villains.


If you think you’re safe, you’re wrong

(an ant has no quarrel with a boot). 

I will burn you, I will burn the heart out of you;

Trust my rage.


Good is a point of view.

There is no good,

No evil. There is only power, and

Those too weak to pursue it.


“People have died.”

“That’s what people do!”


You either die

a hero or live long enough

to become a villain.


I am the danger;

I am the oncoming storm.
