Quote1 In the new world, all peoples will be united, every race, every faith, every creed will find common purpose... our world is not for everyone. Only those who prove their worth will enter it. The rest will be purged... and if nine hundred and ninety-nine must perish for every one who lives... so be it! Quote2
--Ra's al Ghul (New Earth)

Quote1 The virus will be mine. And so the world. Quote2

--Ra's al Ghul (New Earth)

Quote1 I have every faith in you, my son. Some of our enemies are new to me. And some are familiar to both you and me. I welcome them. Their deaths will be the first of many. In many ways theirs will be the most satisfying deaths of all. A fitting prelude to my legacy. Quote2

--Ra's al Ghul (New Earth)

Quote1 I have knowledge which is alien to you, for I have tasted food fresh from dark fertile soil, and I have filled my lungs with untainted air, and I have quenched my thirst with water clear as the first day of creation, and you have not -- because you can not. Those things do not exist on this world any longer. They have been destroyed by man's lust for dominance -- a lust I know well, for at times it all but consumes me. All is corrupt, all is sick, all is dying. As am I. As are you. Quote2

--Ra's al Ghul (New Earth)

Quote1 My family and I will be safe here, with samples of several endangered species, we will wait as the ecosphere corrects itself. If I do not survive , my son shall carry on for me. You are invited to join us, Detective. I have spared you this long to offer you a choice. You may join me -- and my daughter -- or you will perish. Quote2

--Ra's al Ghul (New Earth)

Quote1 I care nothing for Hitler or his agenda, child. But he has created a mechanism to rival any of my own and I would be a fool not to avail myself of it. His war will kill millions. And that leaves millions less for me to deal with when the time comes. Quote2

--Ra's al Ghul (New Earth)

Quote1 I have heard of your famed insolence, Joker. It will not be tolerated here. Quote2

--Ra's al Ghul (New Earth)

Quote1 I am cursed with a love for emptiness... desolation. It is a beauty to which my soul responds... as pure, as untainted as the deserts of my birth. I deem it my mission to purify this planet, to restore it to its former beauty... a mission I will brook no interference in. Quote2

--Ra's al Ghul (New Earth)

Quote1 He will be cared for. And kept. Protected and sheltered out of respect for his mentor... and his present caretaker. Quote2

Quote1 I want to be a physician. I want to help people. Quote2

--Ra's al Ghul (New Earth)

Quote1 The first whose flesh is touched by the spotlight shall die, Detective... for we cannot continue to exist in the same world. Do you not agree? Quote2

--Ra's al Ghul (New Earth)

--Ra's al Ghul (New Earth)

Quote1 Ask yourself, detective... who in your life would wish to come back from the dead? Quote2

--Ra's al Ghul (New Earth)

Quote1 This is a set-back, not a defeat. The advantage is mine. I have eternity... and Batman must win every single time... while I need win but once. Quote2

--Ra's al Ghul (New Earth)

Quote1 I follow your exploits very closely, Detective! I find them nearly as fascinating as my own! Quote2

--Ra's al Ghul (New Earth)

Quote1 One small little life, one secret, looming so large to the lives of the ants... but so insignificant to one who plans in decades. Quote2

--Ra's al Ghul (New Earth)

Quote1 So you chose to ignore me upon your return...detective. But it is a gift to have you back, a rebirth of our mutual respect and enmity. Now that you know the euphoria of immortality... now, truly, completely, you will be a worthy match to... Ra's al Ghul! Quote2

--Ra's al Ghul (New Earth)

Quote1 We all have our addictions, Detective. Whisper's is me. In turn, mine is the Lazarus Pit. My daughter's is you. And yours is your holy quest. Quote2

--Ra's al Ghul (New Earth)

Quote1 On its own, humanity is a destructive force. It needs a master. Quote2

--Ra's al Ghul (New Earth)

Quote1 We have failed. Superman and his allies continue to blight the world with their presence. God-powerful aliens. A child with a magic ring. So much wasted potential. So much they could do to remake an endangered planet. Quote2

--Ra's al Ghul (New Earth)

Quote1 There is no Hell. No Heaven. Only what we make for ourselves. Quote2

--Ra's al Ghul (New Earth)

Quote1 Thank you for your attention. You may now panic. Quote2

--Ra's al Ghul (New Earth)

Quote1 The Bat deserved to meet his doom at my hands -- at the hands of someone who hated yet respected him! Mortal enemies deserve at least that. If I was fated to meet my own doom at the Detective's hands I would have been satisfied -- it would have been a good death. It would have been right. It would have been proper. But instead this charade is perpetrated. Gotham and the world should be celebrating the life and death of a man who has pulled them away from the brink of extinction countless times instead of believing their Dark Knight still patrols the city's streets. A hero of Batman's caliber should not have perished in the shadows. A hero like Batman should have been killed in the bright light of day for all the world to see. That would have been my final gift to Bruce, a revelation and celebration as I, and I alone, pulled the mask from his lifeless face in victory! Now, as the centuries blow past me like a gentle breeze, I will always mourn the fact that I will not be remembered for killing the Batman, who, after all, would have been the only man I ever killed worth remembering. Quote2

--Ra's al Ghul (New Earth)

Quote1 I have been called criminal and genius... and I am neither! I am an artist! I have a vision of an Earth as clean and pure as a snow-swept mountain... or the desert outside! Quote2

--Ra's al Ghul (New Earth)

Quote1 The League of Assassins is my legacy. It seems only fair that I have everyone that Bruce Wayne ever loved, everything he ever built, destroyed. The Batman will have no legacy. Quote2

--Ra's al Ghul (New Earth)

Quote1 I did not drag my bodiless essence through the frozen nothingness -- to have my dreams of immortality thwarted by a snot-nosed child! Quote2

--Ra's al Ghul (New Earth)

Quote1 You continue to exist at my sufferance. Quote2

--Ra's al Ghul (New Earth)
