Psychopath quotes and quotes from psychopaths are chilling representations of what real psychopaths think and will do. Nothing is off-limits for the psychopath (Think you might be a psychopath? Take our psychopath test.). Some psychopaths will silently eat away your soul whereas others will rape, torture or kill. Some psychopaths will do all those things.
Some psychopath quotes will show you how psychopaths behave from the outside in, giving you a sense of the red flags associated with psychopathy. Other psychopath quotes come from inside the psychopath him- or herself and display the unfeeling, uncaring inner core of dangerous people: like those with antisocial personality disorder.
Use the following psychopath quotes to fortify yourself against people who have no conscience, to put up a barrier that makes it difficult for psychopaths to affect you – too much.
We serial killers are your sons, we are your husbands, we are everywhere. And there will be more of your children dead tomorrow. ―Ted Bundy
How does such a cold, calculating psychopathic personality develop? What compels some psychopaths to warn us about themselves and others like them? It’s not a conscience; perhaps it is to instill fear.
A psychopath can tell what you’re thinking but what they don’t do is feel what you feel. These are people without a conscience. ―Robert D. Hare
It is very difficult to spot the symptoms of psychopathy in a person. Psychopath quotes like this one barely scratch the surface of what it means to run into a person without conscience.
A psychopath can use a word like “I love you” but it means nothing more to him than if he said, “I’ll have a cup of coffee.” ―Robert D. Hare
How can you know that you’re with a psychopath when they use words convincingly underscored by observed emotion? Psychopaths know how to act to get what they want, but they never feel the emotion they copy.
Despite the psychopath's lack of conscience and lack of empathy for others, he is inevitably better at fooling people than any other type of offender. ― Anna Salter
This is a psychopath quote that seems to make little sense. How can a person who feels nothing, who cares nothing about anyone other than him- or herself, fool us into thinking they experience love, sadness, and joy like everyone else?
The eyes of a psychopath will deceive you; they will destroy you. They will take from you, your innocence, your pride and eventually your soul. ― Dr. Samuel Loomis
Unfortunately, most of us don’t recognize or identify psychopathic behavior until the damage is done. Even then it is hard to believe a person can be so calculatingly cruel.
I regularly comment on my desire to exploit my admirers or to kill babies and cute animals, and I don't even need to laugh or smile for people to think I am joking. ― M. E. Thomas
No one really wants to know what a psychopath truly is – what he thinks. Yet it’s important that we understand the danger some people present to us, our children and even our pets.
It's hard to recognize the devil when his hand is on your shoulder. That's because a psychopath is just a person before he becomes a headline. ― Becky Masterman
Few people recognize the psychopath in their lives until it is too late. Take a look at “Famous Psychopaths You Wouldn’t Want to Run Across” to see if there are similarities between these famous psychopaths and someone you know.
Psychopaths know intellectually what is immoral, they just don’t have a feeling of immorality about it. ―Barbara Oakley
We teach psychopathic children what is appropriate and inappropriate behavior. Most child psychopaths grow up knowing the difference between good and evil. It’s just that the psychopath feels no guilt for violating the moral code.
And people who do hideous things do not look like people who do hideous things. There is no face of evil. ― Martha Stout
The portrait of a psychopathic killer would look no different from yours. As this psychopathic quote explains, there is no way to tell a psychopath by looking at them.
A hallmark feature of psychopaths’ disorder is that they don’t get bothered by much of anything. They don’t ruminate and they don’t get depressed. ― Kent A. Kiehl
Psychopathy offers immunity to much of the human experience. Learn more by reading “Psychopathy: Definition, Symptoms, Signs, Causes” to better understand what you could face in the next person you meet. Or in someone you already know.
To admit that some people literally have no conscience is not technically the same as saying that some human beings are evil, but it is disturbingly close. ― Martha Stout
This psychopath quote reminds us that the psychopath cannot be cured; some evil cannot be exorcised. However you slice a psychopath, their traits and characteristics are evidence of their inherent danger.

Tracking Your Mental Health Is Centering and Empowering
Here's what's happening on the HealthyPlace site this week:
- Tracking Your Mental Health Is Centering and Empowering
- From the HealthyPlace Mental Health Blogs
- Most Popular HealthyPlace Articles Shared by Facebook Fans
- Mental Health Quote
Living with any mental illness can be discouraging. Have you ever wondered, “Will I ever get better?” or, “How do I heal?” Questions like these are often overwhelming when you don’t know the answer. Tracking your mental health is a simple yet effective way to make you feel more centered and empowered to take charge of yourself and your life.
Tracking helps you see what your brain and body, behaviors, thoughts, and feelings are doing. You can look for patterns and broaden your perspective. In your mood tracker or mental health journal, keep a record of things such as:
- The symptom
- What time you’re feeling it
- Your circumstances
- How long it lasted
- What you did to help it improve
- Medication you’re taking, doses you accidentally miss, how meds are impacting your symptoms
- Your nutrition, what you’re eating and drinking and how these influence your moods
- Situations that worsen your symptoms and those that relieve them
- The amount of sleep you’re getting, and what habits you form to increase your sleep quality
While tracking any aspect of your mental health arms you with information so you can do more of what works and less of what doesn’t, over-tracking can increase stress and anxiety. Start by selecting just one thing to monitor.
Tracking gives you insight into your mental health so you can reduce problems and increase wellness.
