Charles Milles Manson (b. November 12, 1934) is an American criminal and musician who led what became known as the Manson Family, a quasi-commune that arose in California in the late 1960s. He was found guilty of conspiracy to commit the murders of Sharon Tate and Leno and Rosemary LaBianca carried out by members of the group at his instruction. He was convicted of the murders through the joint-responsibility rule, which makes each member of a conspiracy guilty of crimes his fellow conspirators commit in furtherance of the conspiracy's objective.

As long as there's hate in your heart, there'll be hate in the world. You can't fight for peace and you cannot capture freedom.
Death is psychosomatic.

How you gonna go to heaven unless you've danced in hell? I mean how are you gonna know it? How you gonna feel good unless you feel bad?
I am friend to everything I see, everything I know, everything I feel.
I can't dislike you, but I will say this to you: you haven't got long before you are all going to kill yourselves, because you are all crazy. And you can project it back at me, but I am only what lives inside each and every one of you.
I can't judge any of you. I have no malice against you and no ribbons for you. But I think that it is high time that you all start looking at yourselves, and judging the lie that you live in.
I never thought I was normal, never tried to be normal.
I was so smart when I was a kid that I learnt that I was dumb fast.
I'm nobody. I'm a tramp, a bum, a hobo. I'm a boxcar and a jug of wine, and a straight razor if you get too close to me.
I'm probably one of the most dangerous men in the world if I want to be. But I never wanted to be anything but me.
If I had a desire, it would be to be free from desire.
If you are going to do something, do it well. And leave something witchy.
Look down at me and you see a fool; look up at me and you see a god; look straight at me and you see yourself.
Look in your medicine cabinet and look at everything in there that says kills 99 percent of the germs and figure that you're one in that 99 percent.
No sense makes sense.
People don't hear each other. We talk to each other, but very seldom do we ever communicate.
Prison's in your mind. Can't you see I'm free?
Progress? There's no such thing as progress. There's only change. You dig a hole in the ground, you build up a city, and you fight a war, and you call it progress?
Sanity is a small box; insanity is everything.
See, prison doesn't begin and end at the gate. Prison is in the mind. It's locked in one world that's dead and dying, or it's open to a world that's free and alive.
There's nothing wrong with being incompetent. It just means you don't have to do as much.
These children that come at you with knives, they are your children. You taught them. I didn't teach them. I just tried to help them stand up.
Total paranoia is just total awareness.
When I was a child I was an orphan and too ugly to be adopted. Now I am too beautiful to be set free.
When you're on death row, there's a bell in the chapel that rings every day, and after you're there for a couple of years, you begin to realize the bell you hear every day never ends. Nothing begins and nothing ends, it goes on forever. It's like a big sound wave going out into the universe.
You're in prison more than I'm in prison. It's all prison. You've got more rules to live by than I do. I can sit down and relax. Can you?
You know, a long time ago being crazy meant something. Nowadays everybody's crazy.
