20 inspirational quotes from killers and psychopaths

One man's psychopath may be another man's heroic leader of the opposition. Cromwell, for instance, was the leader of the losing side of a war. If his side had won, would he then be less of a psychopath/killer?

This is the man who said "I beseech you, in the bowels of Christ, think it possible that you may be mistaken."

Doesn't sound to me like "You are mistaken, therefore I shall kill you." Although that might be what he meant. It's so hard to tell when war is involved.

When I first heard that line of Cromwell's, I was struck by how out of character it seemed.
