Don’t talk like one of them. You’re not! Even if you’d like to be. To them, you’re just a freak, like me! 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… these civilized people, they’ll eat each other. See, I’m not a monster. I’m just ahead of the curve- The Joker
Now I bet you’re wondering if I have some deep philosophical purpose for Heath Ledger and I like the psychopathy and mystery of the Joker. I like crazy men. There, I said it. Well no I shouldn’t say that because technically I don’t like them but I can’t help being the joker’s quote. Haha. Nope. Simply, I think the joker is hot. Partly because I know under all that make up is the late but nevertheless handsome to them physically (sexually). Another example would be Loki from the Thor. Holy crap! Now there’s a morally ambiguous character. You don’t know if he’s trying to take over the world or is hurting because he never felt like he belonged. 😢 But there’s another reason for my and many’s attraction to ‘crazy’ characters. How special would it feel if an insane person did a complete 360 just for you. His feeling for you are so powerful that it makes him want to change his life. Ooh how about this? You’re even more special because he’s a total jerk to everyone else but you’re a queen in his life. I can just picture it now. Can someone say romance novel?!
Oh oh and I guess you can pull something philosophical from this quote. People are at their best when they need something. Their true colors show when you can’t fulfill that need. I like to guess what the joker’s history is. I think he symbolizes the truth of human nature. That’s why he can adapt to any surrounding.
