Eldritch Terrors quotes by William Cronon
#1. Killing was a relatively simple matter--a blow to the head, a knife to the throat--complicated only by how much one cared about the pain or terrors animals felt in dying.... The animal also died a second death. Severed from the form in which it had lived, severed from the act that had killed it, it vanished from human memory as one of nature's creatures. #Quote by William Cronon
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Victor Kelleher
#2. Why don't they let us explain who we are?' Derin protested 'It's not fair judging us like that without giving us a chance to speak'
Marna laughed mirthlessly.
'Do you think that would help?' she responded. 'The face of fear has neither eyes nor ears. It is blind and deaf to all but its own terrors. #Quote by Victor Kelleher
Eldritch Terrors quotes by F.T. McKinstry
#3. An unkindness of ravens flew from the north and landed in a rustle in the surrounding trees with varied sounds of begging and recognition. Years ago, the local ravens had figured out that Lorth not only walked with death but also left portions of his kills for his eldritch companions. The creatures always seemed to know where he was, a sense born of thousands of years of hunting with wolves. #Quote by F.T. McKinstry
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Jane Austen
#4. The promised notification was hanging over her head. The postman's knock within the neighbourhood was beginning to bring its daily terrors -and if reading could banish the idea for even half an hour, it was something gained. #Quote by Jane Austen
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Wm. Paul Young
#5. So no, I'm not too big on religion ... and not very fond of politics or economics either ... And why should I be? They are the man-created trinity of terrors that ravages the earth and deceives those I care about. What mental turmoil and anxiety does any human face that is not related to one of those three? #Quote by Wm. Paul Young
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
#6. Not death itself, but only the moral preparation for it, holds terrors. #Quote by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Robert Greene
#7. Fear is the oldest and strongest emotion known to man, something deeply inscribed in our nervous system and subconscious. Over time, however, something strange began to happen. The actual terrors that we faced began to lessen in intensity as we gained increasing control over our environment. But instead of our fears lessening a well, they began to multiply in number. We started to worry about our status in society- whether people liked us, or how we fit into the group. We became anxious for our livelihoods, the future of our families and children, our personal health, and the aging process. Instead of a simple, intense fear of something powerful and real, we developed a kind of generalized anxiety. #Quote by Robert Greene
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Bill Plotkin
#8. The soul faithfully comes to our aid through dreams, deep emotion, love, the quiet voice of guidance, synchronicities, revelations, hunches, and visions, and at times through illness, nightmares, and terrors. #Quote by Bill Plotkin
Eldritch Terrors quotes by A.S. Peterson
#9. It throbbed and pulsed, channeled by elemental forces of fear, love, hope, and sadness. The bow stabbed and flitted across the strings in a violent whorl of creation; its hairs tore and split until it seemed the last strands would sever in a scrape of dissonance. Those who saw the last fragile remnants held their breath against the breaking. The music rippled across the ship like a spirit, like a thing alive and eldritch and pregnant with mystery. The song held. More than held, it deepened. It groaned. It resounded in the hollows of those who heard. Then it softened into tones long, slow, and patient and reminded men of the faintest stars trembling dimly in defiance of a ravening dark. At the last, when the golden hairs of the bow had given all the sound they knew, the music fled in a whisper. Fin was both emptied and filled, and the song sighed away on the wind. #Quote by A.S. Peterson
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Jenny Holzer
#10. One of the glories and terrors of working in public is that you do see if your output means anything to anyone. #Quote by Jenny Holzer
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Omar Khayyam
#11. Think not I dread to see my spirit fly,
Through the dark gates of fell mortality;
Death has no terrors when the life is true;
'Tis living ill that makes us fear to die. #Quote by Omar Khayyam
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Lafcadio Hearn
#12. How divine the coming of the morning, - the coming of the Sun, - exorcising the shadowy terrors of the night with infinite restoration of color! I look upon the woods, and they are not the same: the palms have vanished; the cypresses have fled away; trees young and comely and brightly green replace them. A hand is laid upon my shoulder, - the hand of the gray Captain: 'Go forward, and see what you have never seen before.' Even as he speaks, our boat, turning sharply, steams out of the green water into - what can I call it? - a flood of fluid crystal, - a river of molten diamond, - a current of liquid light? #Quote by Lafcadio Hearn
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Peter Shaffer
#13. The Normal is the good smile in a child's eyes:-alright. It is also the dead stare in a million adults. It both sustains and kills-like a god. It is the Ordinary made beautiful: it is also the Average made lethal. The Normal is the indispensable, murderous God of Health, and I am his priest. My tools are very delicate. My compassion is honest. I have honestly assisted children in this room. I have talked away terrors and relieved many agonies. But also-beyond question-I have cut from the parts of individuality repugnant to this god, in both his aspects. Parts sacred to rarer and more wonderful gods. And at what length ... Sacrifices to Zeus took at the most, surely, sixty seconds each. Sacrifices to the Normal can take as long as sixty months. #Quote by Peter Shaffer
Eldritch Terrors quotes by George MacDonald
#14. A mountain is a strange and awful thing. In old times, without knowing so much of their strangeness and awfulness as we do, people were yet more afraid of mountains. But then somehow they had not come to see how beautiful they are as well as awful, and they hated them
and what people hate they must fear. Now that we have learned to look at them with admiration, perhaps we do not feel quite awe enough of them. To me they are beautiful terrors. #Quote by George MacDonald
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Annie Besant
#15. In literature and in art, alike, this gloomy fashion of regarding Death has been characteristic of Christianity. Death has been painted as a skeleton grasping a scythe, a grinning skull, a threatening figure with terrible face and uplifted dart, a bony scarecrow shaking an hourglass - all that could alarm and repel has been gathered round this rightly-named King of Terrors. #Quote by Annie Besant
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Vironika Tugaleva
#16. No matter how much you cry, the tears will dry. No matter how many nightmares, flashbacks, visions, or terrors you endure, they will pass. To weather these in order to find your true self and the happiness you deserve, that is not a risk. To waste the time you have in this body, never showing your soul to yourself or anyone else, living in fearful misery – that is really the most dangerous thing you can do. #Quote by Vironika Tugaleva
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Maxim Gorky
#17. I've thought all my life, 'Lord Christ in heaven! what did I live for?' Beatings, work! I saw nothing except my husband. I knew nothing but fear! And how Pasha grew I did not see, and I hardly know whether I loved him when my husband was alive. All my concerns, all my thoughts were centered upon one thing - to feed my beast, to propitiate the master of my life with enough food, pleasing to his palate, and served on time, so as not to incur his displeasure, so as to escape the terrors of a beating, to get him to spare me but once! But I do not remember that he ever did spare me. He beat me so - not as a wife is beaten, but as one whom you hate and detest. #Quote by Maxim Gorky
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Salman Rushdie
#18. What a leveller this remote-control gizmo was ... it chopped down the heavyweight and stretched out the slight until all the set's emissions, commercials, murders, game-shows, the thousand and one varying joys and terrors of the real and the imagined, acquired an equal weight ... #Quote by Salman Rushdie
Eldritch Terrors quotes by J.K. Rowling
#19. He might have been encased in a thick glass bubble, so separate did he feel from his three dining companions. It was a sensation with which he was only too familiar, that of walking in a giant sphere of worry, enclosed by it, watching his own terrors roll by, obscuring the outside world. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#20. The two terrors that discourage creativity and creative living are fear of public opinion and undue reverence for one's own consistency. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#21. A person is bound to experience troubling doubts when attempting to forge a viable philosophy for living. When we are young, the world appears as a dream, no desire is unattainable, and no goal is impossible. We do not entertain the notion that the world will blunt our passionate aspirations, we assume that the world will yield to our resolute will. Misfortune, poverty, illness, and death crush a person's hopes, awakening us to parts of oneself and the world that we previously denied. When fate has spoken harshly we initially feel ruined, life appears as a bleak wasteland. We must then chose to accept a misery ridden existence or rally the courage and fortitude to turn our thoughts from bitterness and regrets, surrender vain notions that we are somehow special and immune from the terrors of a life when reality does not care a wit for our survival. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#22. The overman ... Who has organized the chaos of his passions, given style to his character, and become creative. Aware of life's terrors, he affirms life without resentment. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Mark Twain
#23. She clung to him, she poured out her terrors, her unavailing regrets, and the far echoes turned them all to jeering laughter. #Quote by Mark Twain
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Christopher Lasch
#24. The best defenses against the terrors of existence are the homely comforts of love, work, and family life, which connect us to a world that is independent of our wishes yet responsive to our needs. It is through love and work, as Freud noted in a characteristically pungent remark, that we exchange crippling emotional conflict for ordinary unhappiness. Love and work enable each of us to explore a small corner of the world and to come to accept it on its own terms. But our society tends either to devalue small comforts or else to expect too much of them. Our standards of "creative, meaningful work" are too exalted to survive disappointment. Our ideal of "true romance" puts an impossible burden on personal relationships. We demand too much of life, too little of ourselves. #Quote by Christopher Lasch
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Anais Nin
#25. You must not fear, hold back, count or be a miser with your thoughts and feelings. It is also true that creation comes from an overflow, so you have to learn to intake, to imbibe, to nourish yourself and not be afraid of fullness. The fullness is like a tidal wave which then carries you, sweeps you into experience and into writing. Permit yourself to flow and overflow, allow for the rise in temperature, all the expansions and intensifications. Something is always born of excess: great art was born of great terrors, great loneliness, great inhibitions, instabilities, and it always balances them. If it seems to you that I move in a world of certitudes, you, par contre, must benefit from the great privilege of youth, which is that you move in a world of mysteries. But both must be ruled by faith. #Quote by Anais Nin
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Jamie Mason
#26. Most nightmares are caged in their realm by implausibilities. The sleeper slogs through quicksand in a fun house of frightening nonsense and disjointed mumbo jumbo. But everything's all better once the bedside lamp is back on, because reality, even when it's bad, is easily distinguished from night terror. Except for the trying-to-scream dream. That one's pretty much spot-on. #Quote by Jamie Mason
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Brian Doyle
#27. I think about the people I know with the absolutely largest hearts, people with a stunning capacity for endurance and grace and kindness against the most screaming terrors and pains. My Mom and Dad, for example, enduring the death of their first child at six months old, the boy the brother I never met, dying quietly in his stroller on the porch in the moment that my mother stepped back inside to get a pair of gloves because the crisp brilliant April wind was filled with a whistling cutting wind....

Fifty years later after five more children and two miscarriages she is standing in the kitchen with her usual eternal endless cup of tea and I ask her: How do you get over the death of your child?

And she says, in her blunt honest direct terse kind way,
You don't.
Her face harrowed like a hawk for a moment in the swirling steam of the tea.
p112-13 #Quote by Brian Doyle
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#28. Examples are cited by soldiers, of men who have seen the cannon pointed, and the fire given to it, and who have stepped aside from he path of the ball. The terrors of the storm are chiefly confined to the parlour and the cabin. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Carol Muske-Dukes
#29. Anna Journey, in her new book of poems, Vulgar Remedies, creates an alchemical self whose shimmering limbic / alembic lyrics distill the mysterious terrors of childhood, the dangerous passions of adults, into her own honey-dusk 'voodun': protective, purified to gold. Poetry is always a time machine: here we are invisible travelers to a bewitched past, a beautifully occluded future. These poems are erotic, vertiginous, revelatory, their dazzling lyric force reflecting profound hermetic life. #Quote by Carol Muske-Dukes
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Paulo Coelho
#30. It feels like my soul is slowly leaving my body and heading off to an unknown place, some "safe" place where it doesn't have to put up with me and my night terrors. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#31. We fly to beauty as an asylum from the terrors of finite nature. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Paula Rego
#32. I get inspiration from things that have nothing to do with painting: caricature, items from newspapers, sights in the street, proverbs, nursery-rhymes, children's games and songs, nightmares, desires, terrors ... That question [why do you paint?] has been put to me before and my answer was, 'To give terror a face.' But it's more than that. I paint because I can't help it. #Quote by Paula Rego
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Joseph Addison
#33. 'Tis Liberty that crowns Britannia's isle, and makes her barren rocks and her bleak mountains smile ... 'Tis Britain's care to watch o'er Europe's fate, and hold in balance each contending state, To threaten bold presumptuous kings with war, and answer her afflicted neighbours' prayer ... Soon as her fleets appear their terrors cease. #Quote by Joseph Addison
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Walter Lippmann
#34. The life of a savage is beset by glowering terrors: from birth to death he lives in an animated world; where the sun and the stars, sticks, stones, and rivers are obsessed with his fate. He is busy all the time in a ritual designed to propitiate the abounding jealousies of nature. For his world is magical and capricious, the simplest thing is occult. #Quote by Walter Lippmann
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Richard Gavin.
#35. The conditions of life have always been incomprehensible to me. In fact, the moment I became aware of the world I began hunting for a portal out of it. It's taken me many years to admit this fact to myself. It seems I'm simply not hardwired to process the din and dynamism of humankind. And so I withdrew my membership. I stepped out of line and let the hunt rush past me, contenting myself with nestling down among the bones your tribe left in its wake. I made myself vety small in the world and welcomed those faint and far-off impulses to come stealing in as they pleased.
I forfeited the tangible for the spider-graze of some phantom realm.
And yet it was I who fount the Real.

-The Eldritch Faith-
At Fear's Altar. #Quote by Richard Gavin.
Eldritch Terrors quotes by J. Robert Oppenheimer
#36. This is a world in which each of us, knowing his limitations, knowing the evils of superficiality and the terrors of fatigue, will have to cling to what is close to him, to what he knows, to what he can do ... #Quote by J. Robert Oppenheimer
Eldritch Terrors quotes by William Shatner
#37. A sense of the unknown has always lured mankind and the greatest of the unknowns of today is outer space. The terrors, the joys and the sense of accomplishment are epitomized in the space program. #Quote by William Shatner
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Samuel Rutherford
#38. We take nothing to the grave with us, but a good or evil conscience ... It is true, terrors of conscience cast us down; and yet without terrors of conscience we cannot be raised up again. #Quote by Samuel Rutherford
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Phyllis McGinley
#39. Scratch any father, you find / Someone chock-full of qualms and romantic terrors, / Believing change is a threat ... #Quote by Phyllis McGinley
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Karl Ove Knausgaard
#40. If you are afraid of the dark, you seek the light. But what do you do when even the light is filled with terrors? #Quote by Karl Ove Knausgaard
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#41. Stick to God! Who cares what comes to the body or to anything else! Through the terrors of evil, say-my God, my love! Through the pangs of death, say-my God, my love! Through all the evils under the sun, say-my God, my love! Thou art here, I see Thee. Thou art with me, I feel Thee. I am Thine, take me. I am not of the world's but Thine, leave not then me. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Jane Hirshfield
#42. Jasmine

"Almost the twenty-first century" --
how quickly the thought will grow dated,
even quaint.

Our hopes, our future,
will pass like the hopes and futures of others.

And all our anxieties and terrors,
nights of sleeplessness,
griefs,
will appear then as they truly are --

Stumbling, delirious bees in the tea scent of jasmine. #Quote by Jane Hirshfield
Eldritch Terrors quotes by John Arbuthnot
#43. Biography is one of the new terrors of death. #Quote by John Arbuthnot
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Madeleine Albright
#44. I was not at all apprehensive about ... disease ... [it] had no terrors for me. The thing I most feared in the world was hunger. That was something of which I had personal knowledge. #Quote by Madeleine Albright
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Anatole France
#45. A people living under the perpetual menace of war and invasion is very easy to govern. It demands no social reform. It does not haggle over expenditures for armaments and military equipment. It pays without discussion, it ruins itself, and that is an excellent thing for the syndicates of financiers and manufacturers for whom patriotic terrors are an abundant source of gain. #Quote by Anatole France
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#46. There is an essential difference between the decease of the godly and the death of the ungodly. Death comes to the ungodly man as a penal infliction, but to the righteous as a summons to his Father's palace. To the sinner it is an execution, to the saint an undressing from his sins and infirmities. Death to the wicked is the King of terrors. Death to the saint is the end of terrors, the commencement of glory. #Quote by Charles Spurgeon
Eldritch Terrors quotes by Amelia B. Edwards
#47. Did you ever feel a creeping,
That awoke you from your sleeping,
That made your pulses flutter and bristled all your hair;
While a horrid stealthy crawling
Prevented you from calling,
And something seemed to tell you that a ghost was coming there? #Quote by Amelia B. Edwards
Eldritch Terrors quotes by James Baldwin
#48. He was one of those poets who escaped the terrors of writing by writing all the time. #Quote by James Baldwin
