Dean Koontz Quote: “Are you prepared for the first wound?”
Dean Koontz Quote: “My wife is my first audience. She’s a tough lady, so I can’t say that I ever scare her. Except, of course, when she sees me the way I look before breakfast.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “I need those nukes, the chief said. I need them, I need them right now. I don’t want to be an enabler, sir. I’d rather get you into a twelve step program to help you break this addiction.”
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: “Besides, I can’t get to where I want to go by conscious or unconscious suicide. I’ve got my strange little life to lead. Leading it the best I can – that’s how I buy the ticket to where I want to be.”
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: “Not an insult sweetie. That was a thirteen word kiss.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “She lived for others, her heart tuned to their anguish and their needs.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “A good dog is one of the best things of all to be.”
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: “If your work is deathwork, one weapon is not enough, just as a plumber would not answer an urgent service call with a single wrench.”
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: “It is the purpose for which we exist. This reckless caring.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Pain can be endured and defeated only if it is embraced. Denied or feared, it grows in perception if not in reality. The best response to terror is righteous anger, confidence in ultimate justice, a refusal to be intimidated.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “What doesn’t quicken dies. That’s an indisputable truth of life.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Without trust, there can be no tranquil resting of the mind.”
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: “I have avoided becoming stale by putting a little water on the plate, lying on the plate, and having myself refreshed in a toaster oven for 23 minutes once every month.”
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 my books, I never portray violence as a reasonable solution to a problem. If the lead characters in the story are driven to it, it’s at the extreme end of their experience.”
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 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: “I think the world is an interesting place and I don’t think anybody has the firm and final answer to what it is but I kind of assume there’s a purpose.”
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: “This may be the primary purpose of dogs: to restore our sense of wonder and to help us maintain it, to make us consider that we should trust our intuition as they trust theirs and to help us realize that a thing known intuitively can be as real as anything known by material experience.”
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: “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: “Even if God exists, does He know that you do?”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Nothing gives us courage more readily than the desire to avoid looking like a damn fool.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “She might have been born this way, without an empathy gene and other essentials. In that case, she would interpret any kindness as weakness. Among predatory beasts, any display of weakness is an invitation to attack.”
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: “Never, never try to scope the market.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “The best weapons against evil were hope, optimism, determination, and faith.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Not everything that happens during the day is an open portending a good or evil development in the future, but everything has meaning to one degree or another, for the world is an ever-weaving tapestry from which no thread can be pulled without destroying the integrity of the cloth.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Out of the seething crowd, out of the light and the darkness, came Blossom Rosedale, the one and only Happy Monster, which was a name that she had given herself, not because she loathed the way she looked but because she was truly happy in spite of all her suffering.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Somebody asked me about the current choice we’re being given in the presidential election. I said, Well, it’s like two of the scariest movies I can imagine.”
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: “Nearly everything that was fun, of course, was also a little dangerous: riding roller coasters, skydiving, gambling, sex.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “I don’t find slashing and blood flying everywhere to be scary. I just find it repulsive.”
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: “I curse the night I let your idiot father squirt you into me.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “That is, Jack thought, the way of life. The horror changes us, because we can never forget. Cursed with memory. It starts when we’re old enough to know what death is and realize that sooner or later we’ll lose everyone we love. We’re never the same. But somehow we’re all right. We go on.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Books were this wonderful escape for me because I could open a book and disappear into it, and that was the only way out of that house when I was a kid.”
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: “Only the human monster knew beauty and rejected it, knew truth and disdained it, knew peace and did not prefer it, unlike the tiger and the wolf who knew not.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “There is no fate, only free will, and we were just in the way of other people’s free will when they decided to do the Devil’s work. People are doing the Devil’s work everywhere you go; there’s no avoiding it unless you go live on a mountaintop somewhere, a hundred miles from everyone.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Ed, once called Aladdin, is the first artificial intelligence I’ve ever known. Maybe if Harry can kill Hiskott and if then I live long enough to see the world become the total science-fiction theme park it seems to be headed toward, I’ll probably know dozens of them one day. Let me tell you, if they’re all as nice as Ed has turned out to be, that’s okay with me.”
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: “The dead are merely the countrymen of my future.”
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.”
