Fifteen Inspirational Quotes by Stan Lee

In this section, we present some inspirational quotes by Stan Lee. We believe they will inspire you to greatness and a life of creativity:

  1. I’ve been the luckiest man in the world because I’ve had friends, and to have the right friends is everything: people you can depend on, people who tell you the truth if you ask something.
  2. I used to be embarrassed because I was just a comic-book writer while other people were building bridges or going on to medical careers. And then I began to realize; entertainment is one of the most important things in people’s lives. Without it, they might go off the deep end. I feel that if you’re able to entertain people, you’re doing a good thing.
  3. I wanted them to be diverse. The whole underlying principle of the X-Men was to try to be an anti-bigotry story to show there’s good in every person.
  4. Just because you have superpowers, that doesn’t mean your love life would be perfect. I don’t think superpowers automatically mean there won’t be any personality problems, family problems or even money problems. I just tried to write characters who are human beings who also have superpowers.
  5. If there are people who like the work you’ve done, because of that, they like you and want your autograph and to take a photo, that’s really gratifying. You have to be appreciative.
  6. I don’t analyze things too closely. I find the more you analyze, the more you get away from spontaneity.
  7. If you’re writing about a character, if he’s a powerful character, unless you give him vulnerability, I don’t think he’ll be as interesting to the reader.
  8. The power of prayer is still the greatest ever known in this endless eternal universe.
  9. Technology isn’t a villain. Technology should help, but if you just use the technology for the sake of technology, then you’re cheating your audience. You’re not giving them the best story and the best direction and so forth.
  10. Nevermore shall men make slaves of others! Not in Asgard–not on Earth–not any place where the hammer of Thor can be swung–or where men of good faith hold freedom dear!
  11. Let’s lay it right on the line. Bigotry and racism are among the deadliest social ills plaguing the world today. But, unlike a team of costumed super-villains, they can’t be halted with a punch in the snoot, or a zap from a ray gun. The only way to destroy them is to expose them—to reveal them for the insidious evils they really are.
  12. We all wish we had superpowers. We all wish we could do more than we can do.
  13. No one has a perfect life. Everybody has something that he wishes was not the way it is.
  14. To my way of thinking, whether it’s a superhero movie or a romance or a comedy or whatever, the most important thing is you’ve got to care about the characters. You’ve got to understand the characters and you’ve got to be interested. If the characters are interesting, you’re half-way home.
  15. Negative information is that which, immediately upon acquiring, causes the recipient to know less than he did before.
