Dean Koontz Quote: “The only thing I know for sure is how much I do not know.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Hope, however, isn’t all that’s needed to achieve change. Hope is a hand extended, but two hands are required to be pulled out of this deep hole. The second hand was faith...”
Dean Koontz Quote: “What does worry accomplish except to breed more worry?”
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: “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: “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: “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: “The guy at the cash register is a redhead in his thirties with freckles and a two-inch-diameter birthmark, as pink as uncooked salmon, on his pale forehead. The mark is uncannily like the image of a fetus curled in a womb, as if a gestating twin had died early in the mother’s pregnancy and left its fossilized image on the surviving brother’s brow.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “While life could be evaded, death could not.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “I survive by finding the sweet spot between reason and unreason, between the rational and irrational.”

Dean Koontz Quote: “We’re out of cocktail olives, it’s a tragedy of historic proportions, but we’re coping because we’re Americans.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Or maybe they were just doing it for fun. A lark. Their religion is tolerant of extreme forms of recreation. Boys will be boys, after all, and sociopathic boys will be sociopathic.”
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: “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: “The uniqueness of every soul is not a theme that our current culture, obsessed with group identities, cares to assert. But Henry was himself and no one else, and judging by.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Is it scarier than Jocko’s teddy bear being full of spiders waiting for bedtime so they can crawl in his ears when he sleeps and spin a web in his brain and turn him into a spider slave?”
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: “With friends, this is a cool world; without friends, it would be unbearably cold.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “These days, all I ask of Fate is that the people she hurls into my life, whether they are evil or good, or morally bipolar, should be amusing to one degree or another. This is a big request to make of busy Fate, who has billions of lives to keep in constant turmoil.”
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: “Jocko likes salty, Jocko likes sweet, but never bring Jocko any hot sauce, like with jalapenos, because it makes Jocko squirt funny-smelling stuff out his ears.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “If we were capable of thinking of everything, we would still be living in Eden, rent-free with all-you-can-eat buffets and infinitely better daytime TV programming.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “When I am battered and oppressed by the world that humanity has made – which is difference from the world that is was given – my primary defense, my consolation, is the absurdity of that world.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “It’s only life. We all get through it.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Because people see violence on the movie screen, they’re not going to go out and hold up a liquor store and kill somebody. It really doesn’t correlate.”
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: “To know grief, we must be in the river of time, because grief thrives in the present and promises to be with us in the future until the end point. Only time conquers time and its burdens. There is no grief before or after time, which is all the consolation we should need.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “I never have lunch because it makes me foggy-headed.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “What we do as a society is seek simple answers.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Experts must read the patterns and judge their usefulness as evidence. Under any of numerous pressures, an expert may wish to misread a pattern or even to alter it. Americans had a touching trust in “experts”.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “The hands of every clock are shears, trimming us away scrap by scrap, and every time piece with a digital readout blinks us towards implosion.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Dogs needed no words to console you. Dogs were the ultimate practitioners of the therapy of touch. Dogs knew and accepted the hard realities of life that human beings could not acknowledge until those obvious truths were exhaustively described with words, and even then there was often more bitter acknowledgment than humble acceptance.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “There’s still a fascination with somebody who can write at book length, no matter what the book is.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Britney: You in a fight? Odd: No, It’s an employment-related fork wound.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “When I’m in the middle of a book it can go up from there. When you’re putting in those hours, the real world kind of fades and the world you’re creating becomes almost more real to you than the outside world.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “I have learned a great deal from novels. Some of it is even true.”
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: “I receive about 10,000 letters a year from readers, and in the first year after a book is published, perhaps 5,000 letters will deal specifically with that piece of work.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Then what are you? An electronic Hannibal Lector? You can’t eat my liver with fava beans through a modem, you know.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “In my personal life, I’m a comic novel. But then, so are we all, because we’re human beings.”
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: “No matter what happens, disaster piled on calamity, no matter what, everything will be okay in the long run.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Haven’t you noticed, insanity is the new normal?”
