Quote1 My name is Wilson Fisk. I am a magician. I know how to make things disappear. Evidence. My past. People. I've filled some holes in the desert. I've given the fish people to swim with. It was a long road. With experience my one teacher. Poverty, my motivation. Hunger, my companion. And fear, first my enemy and then my friend. You must make a friend with horror. It must be your ally. Because it is a deadly foe. Quote2
Daredevil Vol 2 13
Quote1 The Kingpin. On paper he was a shadow. A businessman. He was careful not to leave a trail... He was meticulous enough to avoid the heat. Manipulative enough to have others do his bidding. He had an underground empire... which an army of rats did his dirty work. He was the man behind the curtain. He was a problem solver. This is just another simple problem. It is nothing I can't fix... ...with my hands. Nothing I can't fix. Quote2
Daredevil Vol 2 14
Quote1 Did I support you and fund your education as a debt of honor to your father? Yes. Did I manipulate you like a pawn on my chessboard of enemies? Yes. Do I blame you for taking your anger out on me? No. No I really don't. What I did with you, and what I did with your father was business. Just business. But here's the kicker. In my own way, I grew to care for you, Maya. As much as it is in my nature to be able to do so. I loved you like a daughter. Quote2

Daredevil Vol 4 16
Quote1 You're very important Janus. To me. To what we're building now. Men like us, we serve a very valuable role for this city. The reluctant rulers. The benevolent 'bad guys.' Quote2

Quote1 His anger will make him reckless. And his guilt will isolate him. But then, you know all about falling into traps, don't you, demon? Quote2
Amazing Spider-Man Vol 5 62

Amazing Spider-Man Vol 5 63
Quote1 And I realized... He was right. That if I were to do the impossible--To bring someone back to life--You would never forgive me--for choosing you. I have to let you go, Vanessa. I--I have to move on with my life. But to do so, I must know your spirit has found peace. You died of a broken heart, because of something you did, out of loyalty and love... for me. Something no mother should ever have to do. But today, I will make that right. I will try to atone for all my sins that brought you so much pain and destroyed our family. Instead of satisfying my own selfish desires, I will honor your dying wish. Today, your son's life is restored. Today, the Rose blooms once more. Quote2

Quote1 Welcome, my friends. Welcome to the beginning of a new era of wealth and power. Though I've played many roles in this life--businessman, politician, diplomat--none has brought me the same simple satisfaction as being the firm and loving protector of these few blocks we call Hell's Kitchen. And though I've worn many names--the Chairman, Mr. Mayor, White King--the one that has always suited me above all others... is Kingpin. Quote2
Daredevil Vol 8 8
Quote1 There is little left in this world that matters more to me than destroying Daredevil. And now he strolls arrogantly into my clutches, Elektra by his side. I should revel in anticipation of destroying him with my bare hands. Instead, in the last few moments when my mind is still my own, I pray that my worst enemy, the man I hate more than any other on this planet... will save my soul. Quote2
Giant-Size Daredevil Vol 2 1
Quote1 Hell's Kitchen belongs to me again. Existentially. Its streets. Its streams of revenue. Its people. Your friends. Elektra. Those sniveling children. I own everything in this neighborhood. Including your wretched little soul. For I have all the power of Hell behind me. And you? God turned his back on you a long time ago. Quote2
Daredevil Vol 8 10
Quote1 So I look at you all, one disappointment after another... save for the only one of you who stood their ground and had the smarts to end Owlsley. You will all treat Izzy as if she were me. As far as I'm concerned... Izzy Libris is the Kingpin of New York City. Quote2
Isabelle Libris (Earth-616)
Quote1 I have a son. Richard. I thought him dead... but he's back. He's back, and I'm afraid... he's going to try to become Kingpin. He always had the desire... just not the ability. I don't want that life for him. Quote2
Richard Fisk (Earth-616)

Joe Fixit Vol 1 2
Quote1 How did it begin? My hatred of this man. There are so many things to hate, really. His piousness. His outdated sense of morality. But the thing I always come back to... his hyprocrisy. He looks down on our baser natures as he grins in a fist fight. He puts on airs of a saint tasked with succumbing to violence... ...but he's truly the devil. Quote2
