Dean Koontz Quote: “Your mind always does worse things than people can show in a movie.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Creating a family in this turbulent world is an act of faith, a wager that against all odds there will be a future, that love can last, that the heart can triumph against all adversities and even against the grinding wheel of time.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “I know it’s hard being a single mother baby, he said, but we’re talking fundamentals here. Homemade cookies are one of the best parts of christmas. It’s an absolute fundamental.”
