John Connolly Quote: “Good will attract good to itself, and those involved will unite toward a common goal. Evil, in turn, draws evil men, but they will never truly act as one.

John Connolly Quote: “Books are constantly changing the world. If you’re a Christian, you have been changed by the Bible, by the word of God, or what was left of it when it was finally wrung through the hands of men. If you are a Muslim, look to the Koran; if a Communist, to Marx and Engels. Don’t you see? This world is constantly being altered by books.”
John Connolly Quote: “Books are not fixed objects: they transmit words and ideas. Their effect on each reader is unique. They put pictures in our minds. They take root. You.”
John Connolly Quote: “Came from nothing- less than nothing, because the poor always enter this life with their account in deficit, and generally leave it in much the same condition...”
John Connolly Quote: “Once upon a time – for that is how all stories should begin – there was a boy who lost his mother.”
John Connolly Quote: “After all, what is hell but the eternal absence of God? To exist in a hellish state is to be denied forever the promise of hope, of redemption, of love. To those who have been forsaken, hell has no geography.”
John Connolly Quote: “You had evil inside you, and you indulged it. Men will always indulge it.”
John Connolly Quote: “War merely gives people an excuse to indulge themselves further, to murder with impunity. There were wars before it, and there will be wars after it, and in between people will still fight one another and hurt one another and maim one another and betray one another, because that is what they have always done.”
John Connolly Quote: “I don’t think you can dial 911 for a literary emergency.”

John Connolly Quote: “But some gifts are worse than curses, and the dark side of the gift is that they know. The lost, the stragglers, those who should not have been taken but were, the innocents, the struggling, tormented shades, the gathering ranks of the dead, they know. And they come.”
John Connolly Quote: “This life is filled with threats and danger, David. We face those that we have to face, and there will be times when we must make the choice to act for the greater good, even at risk to ourselves, but we do not lay down our lives needlessly. Each of us has only one life to live, and one life to give. There is no glory in throwing it away where there is no hope.”
John Connolly Quote: “He understood the half-life of hope: it is not despair that destroys us, but its opposite. Hope is the winding, despair the unwinding. Despair brings with it the possibility of an ending. Taken to the extreme, its logical conclusion is death. But hope sustains. It can be exploited. Ormsby.”
John Connolly Quote: “You cannot perform acts of evil in the name of a greater good, because the good suffers. It is corrupted by what has been done in its name.”
John Connolly Quote: “You did it because you wanted to. No one can make you do evil. You had evil inside you, and you indulged it. Men will always indulge it.”
John Connolly Quote: “Here is a truth, a truth by which to live: there is hope. There is always hope. If we choose to abandon it, our souls will turn to ash and blow away.”

John Connolly Quote: “I’d been hurt, and in response I had acted violently, destroying a little of myself each time I did so.”
John Connolly Quote: “A mobster who knew Trump socially said of him once, “He’d lie to you about what time of day it is – just for the practice.”
John Connolly Quote: “He had quite liked the dwarfs. He often had no idea what they were talking about, but for a group of homicidal, class-obsessed small people, they were really rather good fun.”
John Connolly Quote: “The nature of compassion isn’t coming to terms with your own suffering and applying it to others: It’s knowing that other folks around you suffer and, no matter what happens to you, no matter how lucky or unlucky you are, they keep suffering. And if you can do something about that, then you do it, and you do it without whining or waving your own fuckin’ cross for the world to see. You do it because it’s the right thing to do.”
John Connolly Quote: “They listen, the dead. They’re always listening. What else is there for them to do?”
John Connolly Quote: “It has always seemed to me that there are two types of people in this world: those rendered impotent by the sheer weight of evil it contains, and who refuse to act because they see no point, and those who choose their battles and fight them to the end, as they understand that to do nothing is definitely worse than to do something and fail. – The Collector.”

John Connolly Quote: “I believe in those whom I love and trust.”
John Connolly Quote: “In general it’s a good idea to avoid people who take themselves too seriously. As individuals, we have only so much seriousness to go round, and people who take themselves very seriously don’t have enough seriousness left over to take other people seriously. Instead they tend to look down on them, and are secretly pleased when they get stuff wrong, because they just prove to the too-serious types that they were right not to take them too seriously to begin with.”
