For a creepy looking guy, he's really smart and is a great philosopher. These are The Top 10 Best Marilyn Manson Quotes.
1 When all of your wishes are granted, many of your dreams will be destroyed
Explained so at the end of Man That You Fear.
Great quote, this is actually my senior quote for my yearbook at school, that's how much I love it - Shake_n_Bake13
2 All the drugs in the world won't save us from ourselves
3 I wouldn't say a single word to them. I'd listen to what they had to say. And that's what no one did
This was just a great response. He is the best musician. - maarilynmaanson
You had to mention that he was talking about the Columbine Massacre:
Interviewer - ''What would you say to the kids that committed the massacre (Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold)''
Marilyn Manson - ''I wouldn't say a single word to them. I'd listen to what they had to say. And that's what no one did'' - RobertTheMan
4 Music is the strongest form of magic
5 The idea of heaven is just Christianity's way of creating a hell on earth
That's just how it is too. He's one smart guy. That's one reason I love him so much. I also love his music.
6 Part of me is afraid to get close to people because I'm afraid that they're going to leave
7 It's better to use a curse word than to hurt somebody else, I find
8 I think that music is the only escape you know. You put on a record and it's not going to yell at you for dressing the way you do, it's going to make you feel better about it
9 Enjoy your faults. That's what separates you from the rest of the world.
And that's what makes you special.
10 Those who move beyond the most blatant aspect of what I do, will then understand what I am trying to say
11 I am against religion because it teaches us to be satisfied with not understanding the world
I totally agree with this. I don't believe in religion either. Religion lacks a lot of logic and it stops people from thinking for themselves and understanding how the world really works. Marilyn Manson is one smart guy. This is one reason I idolize him. I also love his music. I have a lot of respect for him. I'll probably never get that chance, but I would love to meet him if I could.
This isn't his quote. It's Richard Dawkins'. - GodIsHell
I agree with this one 👍
12 I never said to be like me, I say to be like you and make a difference
I am proud to be my own person. But I love Marilyn Manson too. He's a great musician as well as a great person and I idolize him. He definitely has my respect.
13 When you're taught to love everyone, to love your enemies, then what value does that place on love?
14 This is the culture you're raising your kids in. Don't be surprised if it blows up in your face
15 We live in a society of victimization, where people are much more comfortable being victimized than actually standing up for themselves
16 The imagination is precious. Don't lose it. Don't lose the child in you
Another quote I agree with. A person's imagination is one thing that makes a person unique and I myself have a vivid imagination. I'm in my early 20s but I'm still a teenager at heart and I live inside my head most of the time. I'm at peace when I'm in my own world.
17 If they think that an artist can destroy their faith, then their faith is rather fragile
That is so true.
18 Yet I'm a bad guy because I sing some rock-and-roll songs
I hate how people often blame Manson when bad things happen. He's not a bad person and he doesn't do anything, but he's blamed for so much. But I guess you always gotta blame someone for something, especially if it's a musician. It's ridiculous!
19 Rock isn't dead, it just needs a kick in the ass
20 If people really stopped and realized how much art and creative people move the world versus politics and religion, I mean, it's not even up for debate
21 What doesn't kill you is gonna leave a scar
22 You can create your own demons
23 You get depressed because you know that you're not what you should be
24 I think it's okay if kids wear black lipstick, they're not going to kill their cat.
25 I'm allergic to breasts; I break out in erections
26 Sacrifice to me is something you do without expecting something in return
27 The word 'Antichrist', to me, is the collective disbelief in god
28 Times have not become more violent. They have just become more televised
29 I have absolutely nothing to say about humans
30 But what's real? You can't find the truth, you just pick the lie you like the best
Here's one way to know that Christianity is false- they use threats to get you to believe. Christians constantly tell you that if you don't believe in God or the word of God (the Bible), you're going to Hell and be tortured for eternity. Anything that truly does exist, such as evolution or gravity, does not need to rely on threats to get people to believe. Christians can't get others to believe in their God or the Bible unless they use threats of eternal damnation. That tells you that Christianity is a lie and not to be taken seriously.
31 Society has traditionally always tried to find scapegoats for it's problems
32 Is adult entertainment killing our children? Or is killing our children entertaining our adults?
A quote that everyone should hear.
33 Art to me is a question mark. I don't think it should ever be an answer
34 A lot of people don't want to make their own decisions. They're too scared. It's much easier to be told what to do
35 Hopefully, I'll be remembered as the person who brought an end to Christianity
I think this is one of his greatest quotes, without a doubt. I really do have a lot of respect for him. He's so smart and so nice. I love him.
36 I'm grateful I have two middle fingers. I just wish I had more.
37 If you want to find out who your real friends are, sink the ship. The first ones to jump aren't your friends.
38 I'm not a believer of the 'perfect world' TV tries to feed us.
39 I fall in love with everything. I also hate everything. It's very hard to be a misanthrope and a romantic.
40 I like to provoke people so that they think. I think that's a healthy part of entertainment.
Only if more people would think more clearly and see more logic. But that would make too much sense, I suppose, especially if you're a Christian.
41 You're not a shovel and I'm not your dirt
42 Most of the world's problems could be avoided if people just said what they f****** meant
43 I like to make people question what they believe in
44 It's not about guns, it's not about television, it's a man's nature to be violent. I think it's up to us. It's our personal responsibility to break that cycle that's part of revolution
Everyone should hear this quote. And I mean everyone on the planet.
45 Anybody with any bit of intelligence has got to be pissed off, because if they see how things are in the world, they're not going to be happy with it
46 I like the bible. I like it as a book. Just like I like The Cat In The Hat
47 Well everybody keeps coming up to me and saying "Oh urm, I didn't know you were so intelligent." And well I say "I didn't know you were so stupid but..."
I agree with this completely. It's ridiculous how ignorant a lot of people are. But Marilyn Manson is very smart and open-minded.
48 Who wants to go to heaven with all those a**hole angels?
49 Here’s what they don’t tell you, rampant sexual behavior, drug use, etc., you will end up with AIDS.
50 Sometimes hate is not enough to turn this all to ashes
