Dean Koontz Quote: “A good dog is one of the best things of all to be.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Whiskers of the cat, Webbed toes on my swimming dog; God is in the details.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Some days I’m lucky to squeeze out a page of copy that pleases me, but I get as many as six or seven pages on a very good day; the average is probably three pages.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “I just became fascinated with how complex and unlikely the universe is and life is and Catholicism gives me an answer to that.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “The less depth a belief system has, the greater the fervency with which its adherents embrace it. The most vociferous, the most fanatical are those whose cobbled faith is founded on the shakiest grounds.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Literary fiction, as a strict genre, is all but dead. Meanwhile, most genres flourish.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “I always thought happiness was a choice and I always chose things that made me happy, and books were one of those.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Even if God exists, does He know that you do?”
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: “Best thing that can happen to a man is a good woman.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “The given world dazzles with wonder, poetry, and purpose. The man-made world, on the other hand, is a perverse realm of ego and envy, where power-mad cynics make false idols of themselves and where the meek have no inheritance because they have gladly surrendered it to their idols in return not for lasting glory but for an occasional parade, not for bread but for the promise of bread.”
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: “I’ve a long list of things I don’t know how I’ve done, but I’ve done them. In the end, it’s always about perseverance.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “I have to admit that when I watch a movie in which there is no moral context for the violence – I find that offensive. I think that’s potentially damaging to society.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Amazement and astonishment express the momentary overwhelming of the mind by something beyond expectation. Amazement is an emotional response, astonishment an intellectual one.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “I believe that I was a dog in a past life. That’s the only thing that would explain why I like to snack on Purina Dog Chow.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “We are coming out of a century that was taught that one way of looking at the world, that one form of behavior, is as valid as another. The idea of true evil has been blown away.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Because God is never cruel, there is a reason for all things. We must know the pain of loss; because if we never knew it, we would have no compassion for others, and we would become monsters of self-regard, creatures of unalloyed self-interest. The terrible pain of loss teaches humility to our prideful kind, has the power to soften uncaring hearts, to make a better person of a good one.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “I think to myself, I play to myself, and nobody knows what I say to myself.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “I build a book the way coral reefs are built: millions of little calcareous skeletons piling up one atop another, though in my case the skeletons are drafts.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “If you have to pay the bills, and you write something you’re not proud of, use a pen-name for that.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Of all the things we can feel with our minds and bodies, severe pain is the purest, for it drives everything else from our awareness and focuses us as perfectly as we can ever be focused.”
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: “Every human face is more enigmatic than the timeworn expression on the famous Sphinx out there in the sands of Egypt.”
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: “Loving the ideal more than the reality is the cause of all the misery the human species creates for itself.”
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: “My only armor is my belief that life has meaning and that, when my last sun has set and my last moon has risen, when the dawn comes that marks the moment when I am born with the dead, there will be mercy.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Nearly everything that was fun, of course, was also a little dangerous: riding roller coasters, skydiving, gambling, sex.”
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: “Human beings are such knotted, desperate pieces of work-it’s a rare thing to know one completely, to the core, and still love him.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “When we love someone, we’re held hostage by fate, because if we lose that person, then we, too, are lost.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Without trust, there can be no tranquil resting of the mind.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “For some, the past is a chain, each day a link, raveling backward to one ringbolt or another, in one dark place or another, and tomorrow is a slave to yesterday.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “What doesn’t quicken dies. That’s an indisputable truth of life.”

Dean Koontz Quote: “I have a sofa on which I never nap, big windows with an ocean view that I rarely see because I keep the pleated shades down at all times while working. I know I’m a potential slacker, so I don’t tempt myself.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Home was the story of what happened there, not the story of where it happened.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Only once in a generation does anything as fresh as a vomiting detective come along.”

Dean Koontz Quote: “Although charismatic, James Dean is no Harrison Ford. In the majority of his movies, sooner or later he got the crap beaten out of him.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Death was everywhere, he was legion, and you couldn’t escape his attention, but in some places he manifested in greater numbers than in others.”
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.”
