Quotes / Constantine (2014)

Go To

My name is John Constantine. I'm the one who steps from the shadows, all trench coat and arrogance. I’ll drive your demons away, kick ‘em in the bollocks and spit on them when they’re down, leaving only a nod and a wink and a wisecrack. I walk my path alone because, let’s be honest… Who'd be crazy enough to walk it with me?
Ending monologue, "Non Est Asylum"

I suppose it could be liberating to take a leap of faith, to shrug off the burden of proof for the promise of hope. It takes trust to turn darkness to light. And those who trust risk putting their faith in the wrong hands. For there are those who pray for you... and there are those who prey on you. And no matter how careful you are, sometimes you just can't tell the difference.
Ending monologue, "The Darkness Beneath"

We all negotiate with forces bigger than us, but who are we truly negotiating with? The divine? Well, it's only natural. Prayer is one big negotiation with a higher power. But in times of true crisis, we’ll make a pact with whatever forces it takes... and pay whatever price.
Ending monologue, "The Devil's Vinyl"

And what of my rotten inner child? If humanity’s what can save us, then overcoming the damage and weakness in my nature may be the part of this battle that I dread most. I don’t have the answers—I only know that a darkness is rising, and unless I can stop it, the world will change forever.
Ending monologue, "Rage of Caliban"

We now know what happens when the Rising Darkness meets the worst of humanity. There's not an evil in any realm more bloody dangerous than that. [...] You know me. I don't play if I can't win. All I'm worried about is how I'm going to spend the rest of my days after I've driven every last bastard demon back to where it belongs.
