"Take advantage of what you have, while you have it." This might be the best Korosensei quote from Assassination Classroom, but there are a ton of other great ones that deserve recognition. For this list we're ranking the most epic and funny Korosensei quotes, with the help of your votes.

The homeroom teacher of Class 3-E, Korosensei has some ridiculous quotes that are beautiful in a sadistic kind of way: "What does it feel like, having your own death right before your eyes? That grand kaleidoscope glimpsed in the moments before death...what could be flashing through that perfect mind of yours?" When he's not saying crazy things, Korosensei (formerly known as "The Reaper") can actually give some pretty good advice about looking forward in life: "The past you've lost will never come back. I myself have made so many mistakes...but we can learn from the past so we don't repeat it." 

Although Korosensei threatened to destroy the planet after teaching his class for a year, we still love him anyway. Perhaps the most memorable speech from Korosensei was when he explained his goal of being a teacher: "The tentacles spoke to me, asked what I wanted to be. To be weak I said, to be flawed, vulnerable. To perceive weakness in others not to exploit but to protect. To be a guide, to be a teacher." Vote up your favorite Korosensei quotes from Assassination Classroom on the list below!

To Kill
