Dean Koontz Quote: “I believed suddenly not merely in evil as a necessary antagonist in movies and books – bad guys and boogeymen – not merely in evil as the consequence of parental rejection or parental indulgence or social injustice, but in Evil as a presence alive in the world.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “The brain acknowledged the approach of death while the heart stubbornly insisted upon immortality.”

Dean Koontz Quote: “The desire to write well can never be fulfilled without hard work.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “In times as turbulent as these, but also in the seeming humdrum of daily life, which always proved to be more meaningful and consequential in retrospect, each of us needed to rely on people of constant character and truths that were immutable.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Guilt and shame have, until now, kept me silent on this issue. I am old enough, even if just twenty, to know that I have no logical reason to feel either guilt or shame, that I was the victim, not the victimizer. Yet I’ve been so long marinated in both emotions that they will forever flavor me.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Even if God exists, does He know that you do?”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Dogs needed no words to console you. Dogs were the ultimate practitioners of the therapy of touch.

Dean Koontz Quote: “You’ve got to remember whatever happens-it’s only life, we all get through it.”

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: “Money and beauty are defenses against the sorrows of this world but neither can undo the past. Only time will conquer time. The way forward is the only way back to innocence and to peace.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “And your three-year-old Ford Explorer,” Terezin said, “bought without your parents’ money, a proud statement of your independence – of course it has a GPS.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Few human beings give of themselves to another as a dog gives of itself.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Tommy told Sal about the strange white-cloth figure with black stitches that he had found on the front porch. “Sounds like Pillsbury Doughboy gone punk,” Sal said.”
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: “Self-identified intellectuals were among the most dangerous people on the planet.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “I knew what love felt like, for I had loved Father and, less powerfully.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “While life could be evaded, death could not.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “When I noticed that some of the gray-haired ladies had tears in their eyes, I understood for the first time why music matters so much, how it reminds us of who we are and where we came from, of all the good times and the sadness, too.”
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: “Not all or even most suffering is at the hands of fate; it befalls us at our invitation.”

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: “Be afraid in proportion to the threat.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “A politician’s goal is always to manipulate public debate. I think there are some politicians with higher goals. But all of them get corrupted by power.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “I was learning how people were with one another, how they acted and reacted and interacted, what they said and how they said it, what they wanted, what they hoped for – more than I could learn from books alone.”
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: “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 think it’s perfectly just to refuse service to anyone based on behavior, but not based on race or religion.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Books showed me that there were other ways to live a life.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “I always enjoyed the kids, but I didn’t enjoy the bureaucracy of the educational system.”
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: “I think it’s the people who have no doubt that every word they put down is gold that probably don’t write very well.”
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: “Hands of Mercy and tanks of hell.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Humor is a petal on the flower of hope, and hope blossoms on the vine of faith. They have faith in each other and faith that life has meaning, and from this faith comes their indefatigable good humor, which is their greatest gift to each other – and to me.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “Except for the lack of enormous insects, suffocating humidity, malaria victims groaning in death throes, poisonous vipers as thick as mosquitoes, and rabid jungle cats madly devouring their own feet, you would have sworn you were in the Amazon rainforest.”
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: “What popped up more than that was the realization that I made as an adult that the world is this incredibly complex, layered, and mysterious place and if you stop and think about it the human cell is literally more complex than a fleet of 747s.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “She says what holds their marriage together is that she feels too damn sorry for him to ask for a divorce.”

Dean Koontz Quote: “I often resorted: buckets, brooms, garden rakes, Granny Smith apples, cats that when thrown will reliably take out their fury not on the thrower but instead on the person at whom they’re thrown. I didn’t like throwing cats or animals of any kind, as far as that goes, but every once in a while, in a life-and-death situation, there was nothing to be done but grab a cat and throw it, or an angry ferret.”
