Stan Lee, the writer, editor, producer and maker created the notable characters like Spiderman, X-Men, Thor, and Iron Man.

He propelled a huge number of individuals through his manifestations, as well as with his words. Here are some wise words from the man himself.


Life is never  completely without  its challenges.


You know, my motto  is 'Excelsior.' That's an old  word that means 'upward and onward to greater glory.' It's on the seal of the  state of New York. Keep  moving forward,  and if it's time to  go, it's time.  Nothing lasts  forever.


The more you read,  the better you're  going to become as  a storyteller.


For men must never  feel a cause is hopeless  - men must never  feel an enemy  cannot be  beaten!


There is only one  who is all powerful,  and his greatest weapon is  love.


Sooner or later,  if man is ever to be worthy of his destiny, we must fill our  hearts with tolerance.


Luck's a revolving  door, you just need to know when it's your time to walk  through.


All of the characters  at Marvel were my ideas,  but the ideas meant nothing unless I  had somebody  who could illustrate it.


We live in a diverse  society in fact, a diverse world - and we must learn to live in  peace and with  respect for  each other.


I don't have  inspiration. I only  have ideas.  Ideas and  deadlines.


Comics are stories;  they're like novels or  anything else. So  the first thing you  have to do is  become a good storyteller.


If there are people who  like the work you've done, because of that, they like you and want your  autograph and to take a photo,  that's really  gratifying.  You have to be  appreciative.


There must always be those with the fire of rebellion  in their blood! There must always be those who  will dare to fight an  unbeatable enemy!  Only thus can the race of man  ramain strong  and fearless!


To have an idea is the  easiest thing in the world.  Everybody has ideas. But  you have to take that  idea and make it  into something  people will  respond to  that's hard.


Comic books to  me are fairy tales for  grown-ups.


I always sympathized with the people who  did work for hire; I was one of them.


It's totally irrational,  patently insane to  condemn an entire race - to despise  an entire nation - to  vilify an entire  religion.


I like being with people.  I liketalking to them.  I like everything about  my life, so it's fun.


I think I've never  stopped feeling  like a kid.


I always wrote for myself. I figured I'm not that  different from other  people. If there's a story  I like a lot, there's  got to be others  with similar tastes.


We all wish we had superpowers. We all wish  we could do more than  we can do.


I try not to do anything that's too close to what  I've done before. And the nice thing  is we have  a big universe here.  It's filled with  new ideas. All  you have to  do is grab  them.


Entertainment is one of the most important things in people's lives. Without it  they might go off the  deep end. I feel that  if you're able to  entertain people,  you're doing a  good thing.
