    Default "It's wiser to be alone... " I LOVE this Bat Quote. Do any of you know it's source?

    The quote is this:

    "It's wiser to be alone but happy, than with somebody who does nothing while you're doing everything."

    It's popped up (in various forms) on my Facebook news feed, like, three times now. It's always on a poster, and it's always attributed to Batman.

    Google has been no help (it just leads to more mentions on Twitter, etc).

    Does anyone know the SOURCE of the quote?

    Because I really think I'd like to read/watch it.

    Thank you :).

    Never heard it before, pretty sure it's not actually from Batman...

    Maybe. But every time I find it attributed on Google, it's always attributed to Batman.

    SOMEONE MUST KNOW FOR SURE :).

    Um, it's saying "It's wiser to be alone but happy, than with somebody who does nothing while you're doing everything." (Italics added for effect :)).

    Kind of... it's smarter to be by yourself and happy (by yourself), than with somebody, who's accomplishing nothing, while you're off, accomplishing a lot.

    That's most definitely not in a Batman book. People do those kind of inspirational quotes with a character/figure that applies to them on facebook all the time.
    There is a God. And he hates us all.

    Sounds like Deeper Thoughts by Stuart Smalley



    Exact same level of profundity.

    Sounds like someone with relationship problems, not something Batman would say. He derives strength from his allies.
