35 Lucifer Quotes That’ll Take You to the Depths of Hell

If you’re a fan of urban fantasy shows, you’ll love this collection of Lucifer quotes we’ve created, too!

We’ve all heard of Lucifer’s story in the Bible. However, this Netflix show takes on a more comedic approach to the backstory and personality of the Devil himself.

In the DC Universe’s plot, Lucifer Morningstar, the Devil, abandons his place in Hell for Los Angeles, California. There, he runs his own nightclub and becomes a consultant for the LA Police Department.

Imagine the Devil helping human police catch criminals and put them behind bars. Isn’t that just so ironic and funny to think about?

Sure, Lucifer brings laughs and entertainment to every household that taps on the play button. But, let’s not forget that the show also gives us some background into Lucifer, how he ended up in Hell, and his true feelings.

Lucifer dives deep into one’s emotions and the reality of life and love, so you’ll be sure to find some emotional lines you can relate to. Read through to the end to learn more about him and the other characters in the series!

Did This Collection Open Your Eyes to a Whole New Side of Lucifer?

Being the Devil, Lucifer is almost always considered evil. After all, he’s the manifestation of evil itself.

However, through the show, we better understand his history, downfall, and personality. Albeit a fictional tale, it allows us to think about other sides of Lucifer’s story.

If we focus on the series itself, we’ll already gather many lessons applicable to real life. Lucifer tackles the dark side of humanity and how we’re prone to temptation and evil.

For example, Lucifer says that humans think we can correct a mistake we made by committing another. It’s a twisted mindset that allows crime to run rampant across the globe.

He also says the human heart is mysterious; sometimes, humans can kill the ones they love the most. Figuratively, when we love someone and get obsessed with possessing them, we don’t realize that we’re already hindering their freedom, thus, slowly killing them from the inside.

There are many sides to Lucifer that we still don’t wholly understand. But, we hope that this collection of the show’s best quotes was able to serve as a good starting point for you!
