Dean Koontz Quote: “The truth was stranger than the official fiction.”
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: “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: “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: “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: “No degree of prosperity can be sufficient to eliminate all misfortune, and sloth is impervious to opportunity.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “There are other worlds to sing in.”
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: “Astragalomancy was a method of divining the future or learning hidden knowledge by rolling dice. A ceromancer dropped melted wax into cold water and interpreted the figures thus produced. Halomancy required the reading of the shapes made by casting a handful of salt on a flat surface. A necromancer sought answers by communicating with the dead.”
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: “What will happen will happen. There is time for miracles until there is no more time, but time has no end.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Life was like the ice on an early-winter pond: more fragile than it appeared to be, riddled by hidden fractures, with a cold darkness below.”
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: “Vladimir Nabokov said the two great evils of the 20th century were Marx and Freud. He was absolutely correct.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Always, beneath every apparent chaos, order waits to be revealed.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “My life would be constrained by the horror and fierce rage that my appearance inspired, but I would know peace as well as fear, tenderness as well as brutality, and even love in a time of cruelty.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Every writer has his own voice. Other than that I’m always trying to do change-ups and publishers haven’t always been happy about that.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “In each little life, we can see great truth and beauty, and in each little life we glimpse the way of all things in the universe. If we alow ourselves to be enchanted by the beauty of the ordinary, we begin to see that all things extraordinary.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Death lies dormant in each of us and will bloom in time.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Alliteration seems to offend people.”
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.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Malevolence and paranoia cohabit in a twisted mind. Bad men trust no one because they know the treachery of which they themselves are capable.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “In misfortune lies the seed of future triumph.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Readers will stay with an author, no matter what the variations in style and genre, as long as they get that sense of story, of character, of empathetic involvement.”
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: “What year these events transpired is of no consequence. Where they occured is not important. The time is always, and the place is everywhere.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “No, if there’s any ultimate redemption, it would be because I passed though your life without scarring you, and did not diminish who you are.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Every expression of desired friendship has potential bite. Every smile reveals the teeth.”
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: “I’m no more a wonder than anyone. And that’s what makes the world magical. Every baby’s a seed of wonder – that gets watered or it doesn’t.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “You can’t fix things with a hug, but you can’t make them any worse either.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “The hypocrisy of human interaction, wherein selflessness was publicly championed and selfishness privately pursued, both amused and disgusted him. Every act of kindness seemed, to him, to be performed only with an eye to the payback that might one day be extracted from the recipient.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Your sense of responsibility to others can never be excessive.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “It was one of those rare times when remembering the dead was more inmportant than tending to the needs of the living.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “I can love October in September. September doesn’t care.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “People couldn’t bear to go on living if they faced every cold truth about themselves.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Best thing that can happen to a man is a good woman.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “I can’t go on to page two until I can get page one as perfect as I can make it. That might mean I will rewrite and rewrite page one 20, 30, 50, 100 times.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “I am twenty years old. To a world-wise adult, I am little more than a child. To any child, however, I am old enough to be distrusted, to be excluded forever from the magical community of the short and beardless.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “All I asked was that I be spared surprises, although, in this world of six billion souls, all acting with free will and too many with audacity, surprises are inevitable, too few of them are the kind that make you smile and that lift your heart.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “No matter how close we are to another person, few human relationships are as free from strife, disagreement, and frustration as is the relationship you have with a good dog. Few human beings give of themselves to another as a dog gives of itself.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “But I’m getting ahead of myself. I tend to do that. Any life isn’t just one story; it’s thousands of them. So when I try to tell one of my own, I sometimes go down an alleyway when I should take the main street, or if the story is fourteen blocks long, I sometimes start on block four and have to backtrack to make sense.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “The stairs creaked. They always creaked when creaking could lead to your death, and they never creaked when creaking didn’t matter. The universe is anthropic, meaning that its design makes possible and sustains intelligent life, especially human beings. Nevertheless, I perceive some power, some presence, some adversary behind the scenes that by countless devices subtle or blunt seeks to destroy us.”
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: “To a predator, fear indicates weakness.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “I love my editor, but that would be the definition of hell to me to live with someone and have them go page by page through my manuscript. That I want to avoid at all costs.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Whiskers of the cat, Webbed toes on my swimming dog; God is in the details.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “The rain wasn’t the usual glittering silver, but dark and dirty, as if nature were a scrubwoman wringing out a filthy mop.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “The best weapons against evil were hope, optimism, determination, and faith.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Small-town boy meets big-time evil.”
