20 Amazing Breaking Bad Quotes to Live Your Life By

1.On overcoming your fears

“I have spent my whole life scared, frightened of things that could happen, might happen, might not happen. Fifty years I spent like thatfinding myself awake at three in the morning.

2.On hubris

That’s how I live my life.”
