Downtime Bros and its editors do not endorse, agree with, or support these Andrew Tate quotes or views.

Andrew Tate has shot to fame over the last couple of years thanks to his brand of male-targeted ‘self-help’. The former kickboxing world champion’s content is widely shared on the internet via YouTube, TikTok and other social media platforms. It regularly attains millions of views from like-minded people. However, in my view, much of his subject matter is simply offensive. Some of it is downright hateful.

Since his rise to prominence following a six-day stint as a contestant on the UK version of Big Brother, Tate has given viewers a plethora of notable sound bites. These have covered everything from his own net worth to his views on gender dynamics.

Tate’s supporters share his quotes like golden nuggets of knowledge that hold the keys to freeing themselves from ‘the matrix’ of western society. In fact, some even view them as secrets that will transform someone from being an average person and into an exceptional person. Most people, though, see them as nonsensical ramblings of a man desperate to earn money by taking advantage of gullible punters.

Some say Tate’s controversial persona and abhorrent comments are all an act. But his very real legal troubles tell a different story.

After being arrested by Romanian police on 29 December 2022, Andrew Tate and his brother were held in police detention for the first three months of 2023. However, the Tate brothers were freed from detention and were moved to house arrest on 31 March.

Some social media users have speculated that Tate’s arrest was the result of an ill-thought-out Twitter spat with climate activist Greta Thunberg back in December.

On 21 June 2023, Andrew Tate was charged in Romania with rape, human trafficking and forming an organised crime group to sexually exploit women.

Tate didn’t take that lying down, though. In July, Andrew and his brother Tristan filed a lawsuit against a Florida woman claiming that she falsely accused them of imprisoning her in Romania. The pair are seeking at least $5 million in damages in the Palm Beach County lawsuit.

In November, a judge ruled that Andrew and Tristan would have their travel restrictions loosened, allowing them to travel within Romania. The following month, a Romanian court rejected their request to return assets seized during the investigation.

With all this in mind, I was keen to hear exactly what Tate has to say on different subjects directly from the source. Therefore, I spent a significant amount of time reviewing YouTube videos, TikTok clips, and podcasts featuring Tate.

Given the sheer volume of his content on the internet, I decided to compile this list of Andrew Tate quotes so others could use it for reference purposes. Hopefully, this article is helpful in demonstrating exactly what his beliefs are and what kind of person he is.

50+ Andrew Tate Quotes

Andrew Tate Quotes about Masculinity

“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… If you’re my friend, you just can’t be a p*ssy. ‘Well, I had a heart attack’, get the f*ck up. F*cks wrong with you. Go hospital later. Have a drink, cigarette, cup of coffee, back in the game. F*cking having heart attacks near me, you little p*ssy.”

“You know exactly what to expect from an enemy. An enemy is going to attack you and you know how to deal with that. A friend, on the other hand, can betray you. Betrayal is much worse than an attack from an enemy for two reasons. One, it catches you by surprise… And the second thing is, your friend knows you well enough to know your weaknesses and knows exactly how to strike.”

“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 the status. Masculine life is war. If you’re a man who doesn’t view life as war, you’re going to lose. Society’s expectations of men is much higher than the societal expectations of females.”

“The hallmark of a real man is controlling himself, controlling his emotions, and acting appropriately regardless of how he feels.”

“The man who goes to the gym every single day regardless of how he feels will always beat the man who goes to the gym when he feels like going to the gym.”

“Emotional control isn’t a lack of emotion; it’s a necessary function of maturity.”

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

“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.”

“Reject weakness in any form.”

“You don’t have to be handsome. You just need to be scary. How? Get big in the gym, have status, make money, and be competent and dress like a mafia boss.”

Andrew Tate Quotes about the Internet

“The internet is the new battleground of earth, the wild west, the place of truth and opportunity.”

On Children

“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.”

Andrew Tate Quotes about Mental Health

“Depression is not real. Feeling depressed is real. So, you can feel depressed, but you feel depressed and that is a natural, biological, evolutionary trigger for you to change something in your life. That’s your own mind telling you ‘you’re unhappy about X’. If I went to jail today, I’d be depressed because I’m in jail. I haven’t caught depression, I don’t have a disease, I’m just upset with my situation.”

“‘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.”

“The amount of stress you can tolerate while remaining effective is directly correlated to the level of success you will enjoy.”

Andrew Tate Quotes about Money

“There is an elite club that you’re not in and none of them people are arguing about the dumb sh*t you’re arguing about. So, if you’re looking at this race thing, you feel like going on the street and marching… You need to drop that crap, get your money up, and transcend.”

“Arrogance is the cause of most first world poverty.”

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

On Poor People

“99% of laws only apply to the brokies. We live in a system now in the world where most things can be solved with money. If you can fix a problem with money, either by buying a good lawyer or by paying a fine or by bribing a judge, then you don’t have to fear the repercussions of X, right? So, what I’m saying is, they make a law and the broke people have to abide or they go to jail. But the rich people get to break the law and just buy their way out of it. So, most crimes are socio-economic crimes. Rich people are allowed to commit crimes and poor people are not.”

On People Who Don’t Drink Alcohol

“You can say, ‘my life is less fun, but I still don’t drink alcohol.’ That’s fine, I accept that. But to sit there and say, ‘Oh, I don’t need to drink, I have fun without drinking.’ Then you’re a f*cking liar. Every time I meet one of these people who has fun without drinking, I think ‘f*cking hell, I need to hang around with this person.’ This person has fun without drinking. They’re permanently drunk. They must be hyper in their minds. They must be supercharged. And they’re permanently ready to do some f*cking crazy adventure and wake up the next day in another country with no clothes on. This person must be amazing. But instead of being amazing… They’re just boring f*cks who don’t know what fun is.”


“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.”

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

Veganism and Vegetarianism

“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. 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 sh*t. You’re a dork.”

“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.”

Andrew Tate Quotes about Success

“Let’s say I’m working at a company… I work, I work, I work, I become a manager. I’m on one hundred and fifty thousand a year, I got a company BMW, and I wear a suit, and everyone at my job does as I say. By all measures, I’m a success now. But here’s the truth, when I leave that company, no one gives a f*ck about me. I’m a nobody outside of that one building where I’m a little bit important. My wife doesn’t wanna suck my d*ck because I’m fat… I got a BMW… I know h*es with BMWs… I don’t even consider that a car… That’s not a luxury car, that’s f*cking basic.”

“Success for a man actually comes in many realms. It’s actually nothing to do with being good at your job. Having money, yeah… You don’t have to be good at your job to have money.”

“How to be successful as a man… First thing, you need freedom ‘cus you ain’t a man if you’re not free. If you’re working your ass of, you’re a slave. And you may sit there and go ‘I’m not a slave, I get paid really well.’ Well, listen, the slaves got free food and free shelter in exchange for work. Now, all they’ve done is, got rid of the food and shelter deal, give you dollars which you spend on food and shelter, and you basically have nothing left, so you’re still a f*cking slave. So, first thing you need is freedom. If you’re not free, you’re not a man.”

“Arrogance breeds complacency and complacency breeds failure.”

“Next thing that constitutes success as a man is your network, who are you talking to. Who are these people, who will answer your phone calls… I can call one of many multi-millionaires and when they see my name, they’re gonna pick up the phone. They’re gonna be like ‘oh sh*t, Tate’… They’re gonna stop their conversation and be like ‘wow, f*ck, Tate wants me. What’s up, Tate?’ Because they know I don’t call for no bullsh*t. They’ll be like ‘f*ck… money phone’s ringing.'”

“And then you get into the aesthetics of life. For people to view you as successful, you need good body language, you need physical presence. A man who’s not dangerous, a man who has no physicality will never be seen as successful. ‘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 p*ssy. Then what, who’s successful now? I’m breathing and you’re not. So, I’m more successful than you.”

“Aspire to be a superhero. Not a normal person with a bigger house and nicer car.”

“If you ain’t got a Lambo you’re a sh*t muncher.”

“Intellect is nothing without energy. Ideas are nothing without energy. High energy people win.”

“So, let’s compare me to the manager… ‘I’m a manager and I have a BMW with a fat wife.’ And then you have me, the don, who turns up on the Amalfi Coast, in a f*cking Lamborghini, with some new b*tch to meet a new b*tch to f*ck both b*tches. And I can stay there as long as I want ‘cus my card always works when I pay the hotel and nobody can say sh*t to me ‘cus I’m too f*cking big and mean to f*ck with.”

“High standards protect you from low-quality experiences.”

“One of the largest things that hold people back from wealth is the people around them. If you get twenty people, twenty fully grown men in a room. Even if all twenty are working normal jobs but they pool their spare income, you will be rich. The problem is finding twenty people you can trust.”

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

“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.”

On Cowardice

“Cowardice is the problem. The world is full of cowards. We suffer from a pandemic of cowardice.”

“You can’t be rolling with cowards… They’re more of a detriment than anything else.”

On His Opponents and Enemies

“I allow manipulation to find out where my enemy wants me to go, then I use my mind to break the trap and punish the perpetrators.”

“As you excel in life, you’re going to have a lot of enemies. And if you can’t rely on your brother, you can’t rely on anybody.”

Andrew Tate on Himself

“Maybe I’m completely crazy. Maybe I’m full of sh*t.”

“I have everything every man has ever dreamed of. I got a big mansion, I got a 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.”

“I’m very happy that my life has been difficult because it’s impossible to become a capable man without struggling, facing serious adversities and without trying to overcome often insurmountable odds.”

“I realised 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. Rich as f*ck… I’m charismatic. There is nothing stopping me putting on a suit and being Batman.”

“Absolutely every single one of my actions is intentional. Divine purpose. If your day is full of mindless action, you act without thought.”

“I will never ever wear headphones in public. When you put your headphones in… You are a f*cking target!”

“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.”

“Imagine, one day you’re sitting in Paris. You’re sitting there having a f*cking coffee. And terrorists roll through with AKs and the person next to you has their brains blown out… I’m gonna be like bang, ‘oh I’ve seen that before, okay’, boom boom, duck and diving and take one terrorist out. Next, get the AK go Rambo. I don’t play games.”

“I was doing six hundred thousand dollars a month from webcam.”

“I knew it was police… I’ve lived a varied life, right I’ve done some things when I had to pay the bills… I flushed my phone down the toilet… So, I’m tryin’ to hide sh*t.”

“Everyone, when they get that application form from God… would tick tall, strong, smart, mentally tough, doesn’t cry, gets p*ssy, rich, they’d tick all the things they tell me I’m bad… All the assets I have.”

“I will never apologise because I don’t make mistakes.”

“Searching for my favorite feeling has built me an exceptional life.”

“I was broke for a long time. I made my first million when I was, say, 27. And then, I had a hundred million by the time I was 31. And then, I became a trillionaire quite recently.”

Why Andrew Tate moved to Romania

“There’s something that very much angers me about the western world. I don’t feel comfortable here, I don’t like the way it functions and operates. I think it’s the most corrupt disgusting degraded societies on Earth. There’s nothing left besides money and corporate agenda. And I like living in countries where one there’s some kind of moral fibre beyond the dollar, and two I like living in countries where corruption is accessible to everybody.”

“I find it offensive that a police officer in England will stop me for speeding and then refuse to take a bribe… He’ll sit there and go ‘no, this is the law’… and pretend that the law means something and f*ck me over. But if you’re a billionaire or if you’re Boris Johnson, you can go to Epstein‘s island, you can f*cking throw parties during COVID, you can do whatever the f*ck you want right, so the whole idea of law and order is a lie… It’s just about if you’re high enough you can throw it all away… If corruption exists, which it does, let us all play.”

Andrew Tate Quotes about Boredom

“I’m in a perpetual state of crippling boredom. I can’t explain it. I see other people live their lives and they’re like “oh, I can’t wait for the weekend because I want to watch this movie.” I think, who cares about a movie?… Like, these things to me are so mundane, they mean nothing. And if I don’t fight, if I’m not in a situation where I’m stressed or worried or concerned, I’m just perpetually bored and boredom is crippling.”

On Teachers

“I will not send my kids to school. I don’t think they’re going to learn anything. You know how many f**king teachers I’ve seen p**sed out of their minds, sucking c**k in the f**king corner of pub toilets on cocaine?”

“You ain’t got s**t to teach my kid. You’re an idiot, right? I can teach them to f**king do math at home.”

Andrew Tate Quotes about Women

“Females are the ultimate status symbol… People think I’m running around with these h*es because I like sex. That’s nothing to do with the reason why I’m running around with these b*tches. I got these b*tches just so everyone knows who the don is.”

“Who’s got big booty cuties with their name tattooed on them? Tate. Only Tate.”

“If I walk in the club, me and Tristan and twenty-five b*tches, who’s the richest man in the club?… Females are the ultimate status symbol amongst elite players.”

“I go out and f*ck 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.”

“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.”

“If you’re a 55 kilo female, I will pick you up with one hand, by your t*tty.”

“If I have a chick, even though I know she won’t let them smash. Even though I know she knows what they’re about. Even though I know she’s loyal to me. Out of respect for me, it’s not jealousy, it’s territorialism. If you want me to truly love you, you are my girl. And no one’s gonna be allowed to even try. Even though I know you won’t let them… If you wanna go to the club you can go with me.”

“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.”

“So, I text all my girlfriends, I think it’s five of ’em, so I text all five and said ‘you’re all coming here to live with me and work with me.”

“So, I put them [women] all around the same table, and I was like ‘look, we’re gonna start a webcam business, you’re gonna stay here, you’re gonna live in London, I’m gonna look after you, and we’re gonna get rich rich and we’re gonna be a team… You’re all my chicks… In the end… three left, two stayed, those are my first two girls… It got to the point where at one point I had 75 women for me in four locations.”

“I love this man. I am with this man, we’re a team. He’s gonna take me from the ghetto streets to the hotel suites.”

“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.”

“If all the other girls see me be disrespected, they’re gonna lose respect for me.”

“They’re like, ‘you’re under arrest for a suspicion of assault of this dumb h*e.”

“Females are more emotionally driven, more emotionally impulsive than a good man should be.”

“I think the women belong to the man.”

“If I were to get on a plane, and that plane was to fly into the eye of a hurricane, there was a 50% chance of it crashing, I’d want a male pilot because I think that males are better under stress and under pressure.”

“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.”

“Women do certain things and men do certain things. And 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 f*cking sexist when it’s clearly true.”

    I was expecting an evil, hate fueled misogynist. Compared to 90s hip-hop he’s positively feminist.

    So he’s right on about two things on this list (1. Technically we eat organic material so for us to live something else does die even if we’re vegetarian or vegan; 2. Wearing headphones does make you an easier target in public but not by so much that you can’t also mitigate risks by knowing where you are and keeping a decent 360 degree mental pic of who’s surrounding you) but the rest he just sounds like an absolute knob.

    So, I met a few colleagues who are massive Andrew Tate fans, and I knew he was pretty misogynistic and asked them why do you support Tate. I told them my thoughts on him after reading these quotes. “He comes across as a misogynistic and disrespectful person. He has a clear belief that men are superior to women and that women are merely objects for men to possess and use for their own pleasure. He views women as status symbols and seems to have a lack of empathy for them as human beings. He also makes derogatory and insulting remarks about women’s abilities and capabilities, particularly in reference to their roles in society.

    Tate’s comments about relationships are also concerning, as he seems to view women as disposable and unimportant, and believes that cheating on them is not a problem. He also displays a lack of respect for women’s autonomy and agency, suggesting that they should obey men and do as they are told.

    Overall, Tate’s comments reveal a deeply misogynistic and toxic mindset that is harmful to both men and women. It is important to reject these beliefs and work towards a more equitable and respectful society.”

    So, they replied that Tate inspired them to get back up and never give up. A few of them also stated that they are physically stronger because they saw his motivational talks.
    I said that they shouldn’t ignore his misogynistic takes just because he said a few universally right things like “never give up, etc”
    If Jeffery Dahmer said, “go to the gym or never give up on your dream” nobody would start idolizing him. Cuz they know he’s a pedo.

    Says he’d murder his son if his son didn’t grow up to fit his ideal image of a son. Nice, one Tate. Refers to women like they’re inhuman. Fantasizes about watching his friend die by terrorism so he has the opportunity to grab an AK and show them all how it’s done. Wouldn’t save his friend from a heart attack because he sees some belly fat and obviously, that person isn’t worth saving. Seems to think that going to Epstein’s island is ok as long as you’re rich and well connected enough. Claims to be worth a trillion dollars.
    Here’s a guy who would happily go on a hunting trip to shoot women he deems unworthy just for sport. Tell me I’m wrong…

    Life is a war because it’s competitive. Men should learn to control themselves. COVID restrictions were a joke. A couple of other comments have elements of truth. And the rest is just a big bunch of rants from an angry man who has had too many punches to the head during boxing, arrogant bs, and derogatory, borderline abusive statements with a lot of cuss words to shock people. He brags about being a real man if you can fight, have money, or attract multiple women. Personally, I think a real man doesn’t take advantage of others, has integrity, is loyal to his one wife, helps a bit raising the kids, and yes, figures out a way to make money and be somewhat competitive. He’s just a jerk with a fragile ego who sometimes says things that are true, 10-20% of the time. Also, good job for calling out mrbeast for exploiting homeless people. He’s trash too. One dishonest asshole with a get rich quick scheme calls out another narcissist phony on the internet …
