Movies are for fun, but at times we often learn from characters that do not exist; yet, gives us the real gist of life. Let’s find some top 10 practical and bitter sayings by Joker from The Dark Knight.
1. “If you are good at something, never do it for free!“
Indeed, if you are good at something, then that’s your forte which must be utilized to propel yourself and shine. However, it’s always good to help the needy, but when you know something which isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. You better make your every minute count.
2. “Now I’m Always Smiling!”
Everybody got a smile that can light up a town; although the people or the reasons behind our wide grins does not always leave any positive impact yet, we dare to smile like a boss. The morose feelings must reside within, and we ought to refrain from showcasing our innermost feelings to the world! Happiness is everywhere; Happy people aren’t.
3. “Why So Serious?”
Throughout the movie, Heath Ledger emphasized on “Smile.” Indeed, it’s paramount, and one must always carry wide grins no matter how harsh the reality strikes. Every endeavor is a risk, at times, people win, and then they lose. What stays with us is the time, which is neverending and will change for sure (as change is the only constant). So, no matter what how serious the situation is; keep smiling and welcome every second like “You got this.” Why So Serious?
4. “What doesn’t kill you makes you stranger!”
It means when we deal with certain situations in life, irrespective of our bearability, they change us and often leaves us scars. It also gives a sense of realization that we can deal with the same or more significant pain in the future, but we aren’t the same as we were before. We change!
5. “Smile, because it confuses people. Smile, because it’s easier than explaining what is killing you inside.”
Ignorance is bliss. We may not contemplate on the fact that people will always hurt you, fool you, blame you, and most importantly use you. Just carry a bright smile on your face; it kills people, confuses them. Nobody has the right to pull you down as everybody is strong enough to sustain the pain and overcome the situations. As your actions will always speak better and all you must do is smile!
6. “A man with nothing to FEAR is a man with nothing to LOVE.”
Once you realize that you have nothing to lose, you become stronger than what you were before. If you don’t have anything or anyone to LOVE, it’s evident that you aren’t afraid to lose.
7. “If someone hates you for no reason give them a reason.”
Some will envy you for the success that you attained through hard work, and certain people would always hate you for no reason. It gets absurd to find you are being hated figuratively for no reason. When you don’t have enemies, yet you encounter people coming in your way as a barrier. Give them an idea to memorize your name in their mind. Sometimes vengeance is not what you wanted, but this what the situation demands.
8. “They need you right now, but when they don’t, they’ll cast you out like a leper!”
People will only like you as long as you are clearing paths for them. Once you serve them or fail to please; they’ll ditch you as you were never meant to be with them in the first place. So, rely on yourself and never expect anything in return. As expectations often lead to disappointments.
9. “Do you want to know why I use a knife? Guns are too quick.”
Life is precious, but when death is near, it’s better to go with the flow. However, Joker gives us the best sense of realization that people will never show their real characters unless they are near death, that too, which takes a lot to die. A gun might be quick, but a knife may give me the worst scars and fear!
10. “We stopped checking for monsters under our bed when we realized they were inside us.”
As a child, we were afraid to check under our bed, the psychology that made us imagine monsters. However, the real evil resides within; worst than our intuitive and imaginative characters. We still fear ghosts while ignoring the fact that not every person will do good deads. Some may give us the worst nightmares!
