Villain quotes that make sense
It is not uncommon to feel the villain is making more sense than the hero.
There’s something about a villain who speak the unfiltered truth that gets to us. They seem more aware of the pitfalls of society, the evil in humans, and sometimes they make remarks that hit too close to home.
Not all villains are painted black. Not all heroes are purely white. True, every villain is a hero in their own minds and it is hard to look past their villainess to think of them as people who have been shaped by everything around them to resort to evil. Bring a villain is not just about doing wrong and being evil. It’s about being powerful enough to incite fear but truthful enough to incite sympathy and retrospection on ourselves.
Here are villain quotes that make so much sense.
