- "To live without a soul is to live with something lost...Empty in both head and heart."
- ― Dr. Occult (DC Comics)
- "You can exist without your soul, but you'll have no sense of self anymore, no memory, no...anything. There's no chance at all of recovery. You'll just — exist. As an empty shell. And your soul is gone... lost forever."
- ― Remus Lupin (Harry Potter)
- "What soul? Do you know what the most frightening thing in the world is? Nothing. That's what I found in the boy. No conscience, no fear, no humanity. Just a black void. I couldn't control him, I couldn't get out, I had never even manifested until you brought me forth. I just sat there and watched as he destroyed everything around him. Not from a belief in evil, not for any reason at all"
- ― Ethros Demon describing Ryan Anderson (Angel)
