The Walking Dead: 70 Best Daryl Quotes

Based on the apocalyptic comic book series by Robert Kirkman, The Walking Dead portrays the gruesome zombie apocalypse that all of us fear. The drama continues for 11 seasons as a group of survivors tries to find safety. But it isn’t easy when survivors become more dangerous than the zombies. The Walking Dead show has its fair share of awesome characters that we continuously root for as years go by. However, the horror series has lost much of its fanbase due to killing off fan-favorite characters.

But thankfully, Daryl Dixon is still as strong as ever at the start of season 11. His personality alongside his experience with a bow and arrow started all the craze. Even though Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) can be rough around the edges, he is extremely loyal to the ones he cares for.

Here’s the scoop on some of the best Daryl quotes from The Walking Dead!

1. “Feed him a hammer, he’d crap out nails.”
