Dean Koontz Quote: “Unlike the beasts of the wild, the many cruel varieties of human monsters, when at last cornered, seldom fight with greater ferocity. Instead, they reveal the cowardice at the core of their brutality.”
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: “Home is where the heart is. No, nothing quite as simple as that. Home is where you struggle, in a world of endless struggle, to become the best you can be, and it becomes home in your heart only if one day you can look back and say that, in spite of all your faults and failures, it was in this special place where you began to see, however dimly, the shape of your soul.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “As much as I’ve produced it looks to people like I must have written quickly, but it isn’t that – because I put in in a sixty- or seventy-hour week.”

Dean Koontz Quote: “One of the underlying things I like to do in books, is just say, stop and look at this for a moment. Not that you’ve got to believe that Jesus was real, or not to believe in God, but the belief that it isn’t just happenstance.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “I’ve got a long list of books I wish I’d never written-and I’ve kept them all out of print for the past 20 years.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “A short-order cook, just off work, makes easy tracking for lions and worse.”

Dean Koontz Quote: “Furies, Alecto. In classic mythology, Tisiphone and Megaera and Alecto, daughters of the earth goddess Gaea, punished crimes in the name of the victims.”

Dean Koontz Quote: “Someone said that everyone should stay back, so as not to stress me, but I said no. I said I wanted to see them all, to see people. I wanted to see not just the people I loved and the people I knew, but also the people I didn’t know. I wanted to see people, because people had been my life, the good and bad, but always so many more good people than bad. They had been my life, and I did not want to die without the faces of people as the last thing I saw of that beautiful and mysterious world.”
Dean Koontz Quote: “I think to myself, I play to myself, and nobody knows what I say to myself.”

Dean Koontz Quote: “Of course, I don’t know everything. Considering the infinite amount of knowledge that one could acquire in a virtually innumerable array of intellectual disciplines, it’s probably more accurate to say that I don’t know anything.”

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.”
