"Too much pain, too much suffering can corrupt a good man. In troubled times, either you die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become a villain."
― Harvey Dent (The Dark Knight)
"Will I eventually be physically transformed?"
"Into some aged, pale-skinned, raspy-voiced, yellow-eyed monster, you mean. Such as the one you see before you. Surely you are acquainted with the lore: King Ommin of Onderon, Darths Sion and Nihilus. But whether it will happen to you, I can't say. Know this, though, Sidious, that the power of the dark side does not debilitate the practitioner so much as it debilitates those who lack it. The power of the dark side is an illness no true Sith would ever wish to be cured of."
― Darths Sidious and Plagueis (Star Wars) discuss the physical signs of dark side immersion.
"Be careful which path you traveled down Strange. Stronger men than you have lost their way."
― Wong (Marvel Cinematic Universe)
"A humble man knows and understands the value of compassion. An arrogant man who has never known humility all his life will lose respect for morality. And that is the sort of person who is truly dangerous when given power"
― Abraham Erskine (Marvel Cinematic Universe)
