Lex Luthor Quotes
I believe the term is cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war!
Lex: I don't know. Just got a bad feeling. Kind of like when you can smell the air change before a storm.
Clark: Storms are a way of life around here, Lex. The trick is not to get caught out in the open.
I feel like I owe your father an apology, but I'm not exactly sure why.
Clark: When are you going to be able to put your past behind you?
Lex: Look at the stars, Clark. Some of them have been extinguished for thousands of years, but their light is only reaching us now. The past is always influencing the present. I can't change that. All I can do is try to understand it.

Lionel: What did she want?
Lionel: She must not know you very well.

Lex: So which one do you want to pursue?
Clark: That's the thing -- I want to protect my friendship with both.
Lex: Then you'll never get either one.
Lex: (seeing Clark reading a book, amused) 'Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus'?

Lex: I seriously doubt you'll find it in here.
Lionel: (reading) "I celebrate myself, and what I assume, you shall assume..."
Lex: "...for every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you."
Lionel: That sounds like a description of family.
Lex: Not ours.
