Dean Koontz Quotes

"Language cant describe reality. Literature has no stable reference, no real meaning. Each readers interpretation is equally valid, more important than the authors intention. In fact, nothing in life has meaning. Reality is subjective. Values and truths are subjective. Life itself is a kind of illusion. Blah, blah, blah, lets have another scotch."

"Marked." My face was on fire, my limbs shaking. "All of you. I will take all of you out with my own bare hands!"There was laughter building in Brams voice as he responded. "As cute as Im sure that would be, your attempt…if we thought the people who might try to trace that chip could make you absolutely, one hundred percent safe, I would carry you to them and hand you over myself."I gingerly rested my fingertips against my forehead, breathing deeply, trying to calm myself down."There are some very bad men out to get you, Miss Dearly.""You have got to be kidding me.""By the way, you have quite the vocabulary, for a princess." He still sounded amused.This statement was random enough to get my attention. "Princess?" I asked, confused."You know, a princess. A New Victorian girl."My lips parted to fire off another question before it clicked. "Youre a Punk.""Born and bred.""Fantastic."

Quotes About Doubters

"There are some doubters even in the western villages. One woman told me last Christmas that she did not believe either in hell or in ghosts. Hell she thought was merely an invention got up by the priest to keep people good; and ghosts would not be permitted, she held, to go trapsin about the earth at their own free will; but there are faeries, she added, and little leprechauns, and water-horses, and fallen angels. I have met also a man with a mohawk Indian tattooed upon his arm, who held exactly similar beliefs and unbeliefs. No matter what one doubts one never doubts the faeries, for, as the man with the mohawk Indian on his arm said to me, they stand to reason. Even the official mind does not escape this faith.

Quotes About Letting Go And Letting God Take Control

"When we look to God as provider, we are surrendering our independence and trusting someone else to meet our needs, over which we have no control. Letting go of our ‘dependence on independence and letting someone else take control goes against natural human instinct. We need to fight the urge to take over and just let God be God, because He can provide for us better than we can." - Author: Corallie Buchanan

Quotes About Karangalan

"Nawalan muli ng isang oras ang buhay ng bawat kabataan, saka isang bahagi ng kaniyang karangalan at paggalang sa sarili, at kapalit ang paglaki sa kalooban ng panghihina ng loob, ng paglalaho ng hilig sa pag-aaral, at pagdaramdam sa loob ng dibdib." - Author: José Rizal

Quotes About Changeling

"I lowered my phone, hope and anger warring for control of my emotions. As always, it was easier to let anger win. I turned back to Sylvester. "You threw him out?" I asked, in a low dangerous tone. "I was asleep for almost eleven hours, and you threw him out?""October, I told you we had asked him -""No. We asked him to leave so you can rest only works if I was asleep for four hours, or six, or maybe eight, although me sleeping for eight hours when Im not injured or drugged is such a perishingly rare event that he should have been sitting next to the bed with a bowl of popcorn. Do you understand me? I was poisoned. This stuff is poison to changelings, and the man I love wanted to be with me, and you sent him away. You kept him away from me for eleven hours, and you didnt tell him what was going on. I know you meant well. But can either of you tell me how in the hell you could believe that was right?" - Author: Seanan McGuire

Quotes About Alcoholics Parents

"Sure, genetics do play a role in alcholism. Youre more likely to be an alcoholic if one or both of your parents are also alcoholics. But thats just one part of the equation; the other part is your behavior. You cant become an alcoholic if you never take a drink. So if you know youre predisposed to addiction because of your family history, then just dont get started, and youll never find yourself on that path. Same with any other type of family curse. If you parents smoke, dont pick up a cigarette. If your parents are obese, work hard to exercise and eat right so you dont follow in their foosteps. But some people find it easier to play the victim. They do whatever bad habits they want to because they think they have a built-in defense - "I grew up this way." - Author: Gaby Rodriguez
