[…]Invest in Gotham. Treat its people like family, watch over them, and use this money to safeguard them from forces beyond their control. My deepest regret is I will not see you grow into the good man I know you will become. And finally, my son… I ask that you never abandon this city to fate. We have lived through dark days, and no doubt there are more to come. But it is the good and great men who stand up for Gotham when others turn and run… In death, I will love you forever.
↳ “I understand you. You had a chance to let me die and you didn’t take it. I’ll bet right now you’re wishing you had. I’ve killed a lot of people, brought the city to its knees, crippled the police force, and it’s not even time to open our presents yet!”
