Daddy’s lil monster strikes again …
One of the biggest tragedies about 2017’s cinematic flop, Suicide Squad, is that Margot Robbie’s portrayal of one of Gotham’s greatest bad guys, Harley Quinn, went largely unpraised. Sure, there were savvy folks like you and I who recognized her bada**ery and did everything we could to mimic her look or just rock it out right when Halloween came around.
But the truth of the matter is that Harley Quinn as a character existed long before Robbie came calling.
And there’s always been something about her particularly unhinged, dorky, geek-tastic, and boy-obsessed persona that has captivated her fans for years and years, and surely will for years and years to come.
I mean, these inspiring Harley Quinn quotes alone are proof.
If you don’t know Harley and you consider yourself a Batman fan, what are you doing with your life?!
Harley Quinn was actually a creation of Batman the Animated Series and not of the comics at all, though she eventually made her way to those hallowed pages.
Harley started off as a psychiatrist at Arkham Asylum, a doctor responsible for treating and rehabilitating the Joker. The treatment didn’t take, at least not the way Harley planned. She winds up becoming totally obsessed with the Joker, and when he finally gets loose, she’s close behind, his fair-faced side-kick in crime who will do anything to protect her beloved “Mr. J.”
Harley doesn’t always resemble the things we like best about ourselves.
Her life hinges on the life of a man who systematically abuses her, and she uses violence as an outlet for her mentally disturbed nature … I could go on and, but you get the drift. But in focusing on these details, people lose something essential about Harley — her riotous freedom, her honesty about her own broken nature, and the dramatic depths to which heartache has led us all to sunk.
Love her or hate her, the girl has a quip ready for every occasion.
By that token, I present you to the 15 best, most inspirational Harley Quinn quotes around.
1. You don’t wanna cross her.
“You didn’t like my show? Well, try this one. It’s called ‘Animals Attack People I Hate.’ It’s a comedy.”
2. Love puts you through hell.
“My love for my Joker was stronger than their madhouse walls.”
3. At least she’s Team Taylor.
“Have you heard this new Taylor Swift song? It’s soooo good.”

“I’m not sure if I attract crazy or if I make them that way.”
5. That’s one thought…
“You really put the ‘fun’ in funeral.”
6. She’s complex.
“You think I’m just a doll. A doll that’s pink and light. A doll you can arrange any way you like. You’re wrong. Very wrong. What you think of me is only a ghost of time. I am dangerous. And I will show you just how dark I can be.”
7. It’s just this simple.
“We’re bad guys. It’s what we do.”

“Face it, Harl, this stinks — you’re a certified nutso wanted by the law in over a dozen states, and hopelessly in love with a murderous, psychopathic clown.”
11. She’s also a pure murderous sass.
“I’m rubber, you’re glue, whatever you say bounces off me and makes a six-inch-diameter exit wound in you.”

“Oh, come on, Puddin! Don’t you wanna rev up your ‘Harley’? Vroom vroom!”
13. Men … amiright?
“Why can’t a girl be nice to a guy without the mook trying to murder her?”
14. Vengeance is hers.
“I’m going to kill you. For everything you’ve done to me. All the times you’ve made me feel useless and small. For all the times I will never forget. For all the things I can never forgive.”
15. Nobody’s perfect.
“I found The Joker’s psyche disturbing, his dementia alarming — and his charm irresistible! What can I tell ya? The guy just did it for me.”
