Dean Koontz Quote: “Life had not taught me to distrust ministers, but it had taught me to trust no one more than dogs.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “How passionately we love everything that cannot last: the dazzling crystallory of winter, the spring in bloom, the fragile flight of butterflies, crimson sunsets, a kiss, and life.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “I try not to spend too much time on partisan politics. Life’s too short for that. I don’t really believe that there have been many human problems solved by politics.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “We can approach belief from an intellectual path, but in the end, God must be taken on faith. Proofs are for things of this world, things in time and of time, not beyond time.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Like all of us in this storm between birth and death, I can wreak no great changes on the world, only small changes for the better, I hope, in the lives of those I love.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Human cruelty and treachery surpassed all understanding. There were no answers. Only excuses.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “While I like people, I do also like being alone in a room and seeing what you can do with a particular theme or subject.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “The recognition of pain and fear in others give rise in us to pity, and in our pity is our humanity, our redemption.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “The snow did not even whisper its way to earth, but seemed to salt the night with silence.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Wealth is power, and power is the only thing about which contemporary culture cares.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Houses are not haunted. We are haunted, and regardless of the architecture with which we surround ourselves, our ghosts stay with us until we ourselves are ghosts.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Loyal companions are an unequaled grace, stanching fear before it bleeds you numb, a reliable antidote for creeping despair.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Home was not a perfect place. But it was the only home they had and they could hope to make it better.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “There’s sometimes a weird benefit to having an alcoholic, violent father. He really motivated me in that I never wanted to be anything like him.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Writing isn’t a source of pain. It’s psychic chemotherapy. It reduces your psychological tumors and relieves your pain.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “If wishes were filet mignon, we’d always eat well at dinner.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “But victimhood was seductive, a release from responsibility and caring. Fear would be transmuted into weary resignation; failure would no longer generate guilt but, instead, would spawn a comforting self-pity.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Maybe I’m needy, neurotic, paranoid. Under the circumstances, of course, if I weren’t needy, neurotic, and paranoid, I’d obviously be psychotic.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Loneliness comes in two basic varieties. When it results from a desire for solitude, loneliness is a door we close against the world. When the world instead rejects us, loneliness is an open door, unused.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Imagine that you are more than nothing. Evil made you, but you are no more evil than a child unborn. If you want, if you seek, if you hope, who is to say that your hope might not be answered?”
Dean Koontz Quote: “In this brave new digital world, reality is plastic, and your identity is whatever you wish it to be. As is your future: Wish it, build it, live it.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “I work on one page, revising and polishing until I can’t make it better, then move on to the next. Some pages might get 20 or more drafts before I move on.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “We need to laugh at the irrationality of evil, for in doing so we deny evil’s power over us, diminish its influence in the world, and tarnish the allure it has for some people.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Laughter is a balm for the afflicted, the best defense against despair, the only medicine for melancholy. -Groucho Marx.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Adversity breeds toughness, and the tough succeed. And survive.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Love was a sacred garment, woven of a fabric so thin that it could not be seen, yet so strong that even mighty death could not tear it, a garment that could not be frayed by use, that brought warmth into what would otherwise be an intolerable, cold world- but at times love could also be as heavy as chain mail. Bearing the burden of love, on those occasions when it was a solemn weight, made it more precious when, in better times, it caught the wind in sleeves like wings, and lifted you.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “What will happen will happen. There is time for miracles until there is no more time, but time has no end.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “The primitive in each of us climbs closer to the surface during the night, for the moon sings to it, and the cold void between the stars speaks its language. To that savage self, evil can look lovely in too little light.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “When a knot gets to tight, you can always cut the rope.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “It is music that speaks to the deepest reaches of your soul, and you are lifted higher, ever higher, by the adagio, in my opinion more so even than in any of the masses that Beethoven composed.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “I believe in the possibility of miracles but, more to the point, I believe in our need for them.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “I come down on the side of free will but I have sympathy for those who believe in fate because there is something about life which we feel we have no control over.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “The things we worry about the most are never the things that bite us. The sharpest teeth always take their nip of us when we are looking the other way.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Fear is a hammer, and when the people are beaten finally to the conviction that their existence hangs by a frayed thread, they will be led where they need to go.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “In misfortune lies the seed of future triumph.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “No degree of prosperity can be sufficient to eliminate all misfortune, and sloth is impervious to opportunity.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “When new hopes fail, old hopes return in the endless cycle of desperation.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Insanity is not evil, but all evil is insane. Evil itself is never funny, but insanity sometimes can be. We need to laugh at the irrationality of evil, for in doing so we deny evil’s power over us, diminish its influence in the world, and tarnish the allure it has for some people.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Every expression of desired friendship has potential bite. Every smile reveals the teeth.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Whiskers of the cat, Webbed toes on my swimming dog; God is in the details.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Death lies dormant in each of us and will bloom in time.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Power is living while others inevitably perish. Power is cool indifference to their suffering. Power is taking nourishment from the deaths of others, just as the mighty redwoods draw sustenance from the perpetual decomposition of what once lived, but lived only briefly, around them. This is also part of the philosophy of Edgler Foreman Vess.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “The truth was stranger than the official fiction.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “If something in your writing gives support to people in their lives, that’s more than just entertainment-w hich is what we writers all struggle to do, to touch people.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Sorrow is not a raven perched persistently above a chamber door. Sorrow is a thing with teeth, and while in time it retreats, it comes back at the whisper of it’s name.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Funny, how one good cookie could calm the mind and even elevate a troubled soul.”

Dean Koontz Quote: “Rub-a-dub-dub. Cerebrum in a tub.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “I can love October in September. September doesn’t care.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “I’ve since discovered that many human beings need no supernatural mentoring to commit acts of savagery; some people are devils in their own right, their telltale horns having grown inward to facilitate their disguise.”
