Charles Manson was a notorious and popular cult leader who masterminded a series of murders that shook America in the 60s while pursuing his ideology of a race war. He was also a songwriter in Los Angeles before his criminal record and subsequent charges bordering on the murder of Tete-LaBianca which saw him spend the rest of his life in jail. He was thought of as a crazy, inhuman and totally brutal criminal who had less regard for human lives. Below are 17 of Charles Manson quotes on his view about life, crime, religion and so on that suggest the kind of mindset he had as a cult leader and criminal mastermind.

For lack of a better category, we have filed this post under celebrity quotes. By celebrity here, we do not refer to him as a celebrated figure the kind you would mob in an event for his autograph. He was a public man in that his name was known and heard. If we ever create a public people’s category, Charles Manson would be there. We haven’t created this so Manson remains in the celebrities category. We are always reviewing things on this site and we are going to change this in the future if a great need to do so arises.
