Andrew Tate quotes on women

1) “I think the women belong to the man.”

Woah there, big guy. Those are strong words you’re using there. Well, if this is the first quote, you can tell how the rest are gonna go.

2) “Females are the ultimate status symbol. People think I’m running around with these hoes because I like sex. That’s nothing to do with the reason why I’m running around with these bitches. I got these bitches just so everyone knows who the don is.”

3) “I go out and fuck and I come back to her and I don’t care about her and I only love my girl. That’s not cheating, that’s exercise.”

Yeah, we’re not sure you know what infidelity means, Mr. Tate. Or exercise, for that matter.

4) “I was getting on a plane and I could see through the cockpit that a female was the pilot and I took a picture and I said, ‘most women I know can’t even park a car, why is a woman flying my plane?’ and they banned me.”

5) “I had one girl and she got too drunk one day and she threw up in my apartment. I told her to clean up, she refused. So, I took her stuff and threw it out the window.”

What a gentleman.

6) “I think the most important thing anyone can do in their life is have children. When I speak to some of these feminists who’re like ‘I don’t want kids,’ I think you are the most miserable stupid b*tch in the world.”

7) “How can I use these women to make me money? I don’t wanna put them on the track because they’re my women, I don’t want other people touching my chicks.”

8) “They’re like, ‘you’re under arrest for a suspicion of assault of this dumb hoe.’”

We’re pretty sure that’s not the exact language they used.

9) “If we talk about tradition—traditionally—every single man in history had multiple wives, and there was not a single woman who was celebrated for having multiple husbands. Female promiscuity has always been disgusting and frowned upon.”

10) “We live in a world now where the whole idea of the roles has been conflated to the fact where if I come along and say women are better with children and men are better at fighting, that I’m somehow fucking sexist when it’s clearly true.”

11) “You can’t be responsible for something that doesn’t listen to you. You can’t be responsible for a dog if it doesn’t obey you, or a child if it doesn’t obey you, or a woman that doesn’t obey you.” 

12) “18 to 19-year-old women are more attractive than 25-year-olds because they’ve been through less dick.”

13) “When a girl’s entire night is in her Snapchat story, rest assured her lifelong quest for attention had undoubtedly turned her into a h*e.”

14) “Why would you be with a woman whos not a virgin anyway [sic]? She is used goods. Second hand.”

15) “Read the Bible, every single man had multiple wives, not a single woman had multiple husbands. It’s against the will of God — it’s disgusting.”

16) “This belief does discredit as a whole. Stick to the serious definitions and stop pretending normal male behavior is r***.”

Andrew Tate quotes on money and success

17) “I’ve gotten mixed reviews about the color of my Bugatti. Some people like it, some people don’t like it. So I said, ‘What color is your Bugatti?’”

Ah, so that’s where it’s from. That’s what all the fourteen year old kids have been using as comebacks in social media comment sections.

18) “Everyone has a Lambo or a Ferrari, it’s easy.”

Sure we do.

19) “I know hoes with BMWs. I don’t even consider that a car. That’s not a luxury car, that’s fucking basic.”

20) “If you ain’t got a Lambo, you’re a shit muncher.”

21) “’Oh, I’m successful, I’m rich,’ yeah, but I’ll break your neck. I’m gonna grab you by your neck and choke you till you die. I’ll show you a race riot, pussy. Then what, who’s successful now? I’m breathing and you’re not. So, I’m more successful than you.”

22) “Broke people try to make money because they want to buy things.”

23) “Only true freedom is a powerful network and lots of money.”

24) If you truly wanted money, you wouldn’t be able to sleep until you fucking had it.”

25) “The temporary satisfaction of quitting is outweighed by the eternal suffering of being a nobody.

26)  “Cost is the enemy of the poor man, so the poor try to save money. Time is the enemy of the rich man, so the rich try to save time.”

27)  “You are exactly where you deserve to be. Change who you are and you will change how you live.”

28) “If you are an able-bodied military aged male. There is zero reason you should be asking others for money.”

Oh yeah, because no one can have financial struggles nowadays, you can just sell your Lambo.

Andrew Tate quotes on mental health

29) “Depression isn’t real. You feel sad, you move on. You will always be depressed if your life is depressing. Change it.”

Decades of psychological science down the drain. Thanks for the enlightenment, Mr. Tate.

30) “I haven’t caught depression, I don’t have a disease—I’m just upset with my situation.”

31) “’Uh, real men cry and women can cry and men can cry, too, there’s nothing wrong with it.’ And there absolutely is something wrong with it. Life as a man is far more difficult than life as a woman.”

32) “They pretend they caught some disease to absolve all responsibility. ‘It’s not my fault I’m sad,’ yes it is. People will do anything to absolve responsibilities. ‘It’s not my fault I’m poor/sad/fat/stupid,’ yes it is.”

33) “Depression as it’s diagnosed doesn’t exist. Now come back and call me names and defend your safety crutch with all you have. Or accept facts and change your life.”

34) “Losers love to talk about feelings.”

Andrew Tate quotes on veganism and vegetarianism

35) “You think because you sit there and eat tofu that you’re somehow changing the basic universal constants of the reality we exist within. You’re not changing shit. You’re a dork.”

Hey hey hey, no need for name-calling.

36) “When you’re saying ‘I’m a vegetarian or a vegan,’ you’re saying ‘I deny reality, I deny one of the most basic fundamentals of reality,’ which is for something to live, something else must die.”

37) “Why am I supposed to feel guilty for destroying an animal so that I can grow when every single thing that’s ever existed, ever, has destroyed something else to grow. What, I’m going to come along and be Mr. Nice Guy and I’m gonna undo the laws of the universe?”

Andrew Tate quotes on COVID-19

38) “I called this virus [COVID-19] a hoax from the start and everyone called me crazy. The virus isn’t real. There is a virus, yes. Is it deadly? No. Is shutting down the economy an appropriate response? Absolutely not. Clown world.”

Let’s just hope Andrew doesn’t get into politics.

39) “Do you not see how the elites play you? They stop mentioning the virus, everyone stops mentioning the virus, no one talks about the virus anymore. Now it’s racism.”

40) “I don’t sleep with vaccinated women.”

Andrew Tate quotes on masculinity

41) “I do know how to administer CPR. However, I will not administer CPR unless you’re a hot female… If you’re some fat dude and you just had a heart attack and I don’t really know you, you’re gonna die… No, not even if you’re a friend…”

So that’s why he didn’t become a healthcare worker.

42) “If you’re my friend, you just can’t be a pussy. ‘Well, I had a heart attack’, get the fuck up. Fuck’s wrong with you? Go to the hospital later. Have a drink, cigarette, cup of coffee, back in the game. Fucking having heart attacks near me, you little pussy.”

43) “The masculine perspective is you have to understand that life is war. It’s a war for the female you want. It’s a war for the car you want. It’s a war for the money you want. It’s a war for status. Masculine life is war.”

44) “Society’s expectations of men are much higher than the societal expectations of females.”

45) “Men who live without self control are the kind of men who cry when their girlfriend cheats on them, ‘cause she certainly does, because she doesn’t respect a little cry baby, and she’s only with you because she’s ugly as fuck and she has to settle for a little soy boy pussy like you.”

46) “If you could choose to build yourself from the ground up, like from a video game—just tick characteristic boxes and build yourself—nobody would choose to be a liberal soy boy. Nobody would choose to be a small weak guy who has to cry when he gets upset.”

47) “Men can cheat, women can’t.”

48) “Men are not designed to be comfortable, they want to achieve, to feel pain and suffering, to conquer something.”

49)  “One of the best things about being a man is being territorial and being able to say ‘that is mine.’”

Andrew Tate quotes on himself

50) “I realized yesterday that I can actually, genuinely, right now nothing is stopping me from becoming Batman. Nothing. I have a bat cave. I have an Alfred. I have a Batmobile, a Bugatti. I can fight.”

You reading this, DC Studios? You guys better be ready with an offer. At least 15 Bugattis or something. Don’t even think of any BMWs.

51) “I have everything every man has ever dreamed of. I got a big mansion, I got super cars, I can live anywhere I want, I got unlimited women, I go where I want; I do anything I want all the time. So, I’m an amazing role model.”

52) “I’m not a r***, but I like the idea of just being able to do what I want. I like being free.”

53) “I will not have nerds as children. I refuse to have a nerd carry the name Tate. If my son is a nerd, one of us has to die, him or me and I’ll challenge him to mortal combat.”

54) “I state without arrogance I am the most desired man on the planet.”

55) “Maybe I’m completely crazy. Maybe I’m full of shit.”

Huh. Finally, words of wisdom from Andrew Tate. Always a first, eh?

Andrew Tate quotes on being arrested

Along with stirring controversy, Andrew Tate and brother Tristan Tate have also been arrested by the Romanian government several times. The first time came in December 2022 as the two were placed under house arrest in Bucharest, while the most recent occurrence happened on March 12. Given his experience, Tate has plenty of quotes regarding his confinement:

56) “The Matrix has attacked me. But they misunderstand, you cannot kill an idea. Hard to Kill.”

Is this Maxtrix in the room with you now, Andrew?

57) “It seems every generation’s great revolutionaries suffer from unfair imprisonment.”

58) “Solitary confinement provides the perfect environment to mediate and hone my dragon fist.”

For a guy that allegedly doesn’t like video games, he talks like a Mortal Kombat character. 

59) “The Matrix attacked me because The Real World teaches you what it doesn’t want you to know.”

60) “My case is a political operation designed to degrade my influence.” 

I think you’ve done a good job of doing that yourself.
