25 Best quotes by the legendary Joker. 

As people worldwide are yet to recover the current groundbreaking portrayal of a mind-bending cruel yet psychologically vitiated Arthur Fleck of Joker(2019), we are once again reminded of our forever favorite iconic supervillain from the DC universe. Arguably, Joker from The Dark Night is one devious mastermind behind the evil, armed with a malevolent grin and devil-may-care attitude. Joker is most probably the only villain who is more famous than the hero. Why? because he represents a mirror to society. Because behind his fake laughter and fake smiles lies the reality of the world.

But what makes him so grounded and close to our heart is the madness that he delineates. However absurd and perturbing his words might be, but they reflect the dark side of each one of us. That is what we love the most about the joker and his philosophies – the fact that they reflect the hard truth of life.
