Horror quotes by Clark Ashton Smith
#1. There have been times when only a hair's-breadth has intervened betwixt myself and the seething devil-ridden world of madness; for the hideous knowledge, the horror- blackened memories which I have carried so long, were never meant to be borne by the human intellect. #Quote by Clark Ashton Smith
Horror quotes by Mindy Fordham
#2. Art lovers collect paintings that demonstrate some form of imperceptible complexity. Abstract images with vague messages and symbols that keep you guessing and wondering what it all means, if anything. What these art buffs don't seem to realize is that true complexity - the real abstract image - lies in something as simple and as random as a family photo. If they bothered to look deeply and closely enough into these unremarkable images, they would see the lies, the sorrow and the dark secrets that hide behind the superficial smiles and forced joviality. A picture is worth a thousand words, but most of those words get lost in translation. #Quote by Mindy Fordham
Horror quotes by Simon Kurt Unsworth
#3. Terrible and ancient and scarred with the endless cold of space, the terrible and ancient things glistened with frozen moisture and colors played across the surface of the skin, colors that were never meant to be seen on earth. #Quote by Simon Kurt Unsworth
Horror quotes by Rousas John Rushdoony
#4. Man as an Idea in neoplatonist religion is again an abstraction, less a monster and more a bad joke. The religious idea of man is of a bodiless being who works to undo his flesh, deny his appetites, and to rise above the ordinary requirements of the body. This abstraction has a horror of the material world as a kind of fatal allure seeking to corrupt his soul. But no man finds himself more beset by lust than the man who tries to deny he is a man. #Quote by Rousas John Rushdoony
Horror quotes by Mav Skye
#5. He's a pig," whispers May, her frail body wavering in the firelight. "An ugly pink pig. And I think the pig needs to be butchered. #Quote by Mav Skye
Horror quotes by Katie MacAlister
#6. Lady Rowena gasped in horror at the sight of Lord Raoul's majestic purple-helmeted warrior of love. #Quote by Katie MacAlister
Horror quotes by Lauren Hammond
#7. For a moment, I'm captivated. He's seducing me with his eyes. A nervous flutter swims through my stomach. I can feel my heartbeat in my throat. Pounding. Constricting. I swallow hard. #Quote by Lauren Hammond
Horror quotes by Georgette Heyer
#8. But the thing is that it has provided Mrs Scorrier with a pretext for saying what, I own, has quite sunk my spirits. She told me that Charlotte has a horror of *deformity*, which makes her wish that just now, when she is in a delicate situation, it might have been possible for Aubrey to visit friends. #Quote by Georgette Heyer
Horror quotes by Anthony Hulse
#9. I'll sing you a tale,
Of evil and woe,
On his way to school, was little Joe,
All that was found was his bloody coat,
His bastard tormentor had cut his throat. #Quote by Anthony Hulse
Horror quotes by Mary Wibberley
#10. His grey eyes were shadowed, mysterious, and she sensed the power within him, saw the hard lines of his expressive mouth soften momentarily as he murmured:
"What a girl!" His free hand reached out to touch her face, and she could scarcely breathe. "Let me - go," but the last word was lost as his lips came down on hers in a brief hard kiss that held no passion, only insult. Incensed, she tried to push him away and was imprisoned within the circle of his arms instantly Helpless, overpowered, she jerked her head to escape further punishment and he took hold of her hair and held her completely helpless as he kissed her a second time. Harder still, ruthless - only this time something changed. Quite suddenly the kiss no longer hurt her. She found herself melting into a delirious response. found to her horror that she was enjoying it, discovered that the imprisoning arms that held her were not steel bands after all, but were warm and wonderful instead... #Quote by Mary Wibberley
Horror quotes by Suzumu
#11. In this world, there are only 'things that seem like the truth' and 'things that seem like rumors - A-ya #Quote by Suzumu
Horror quotes by Adam Green
#12. I have found that my fan base is a bit above average when compared to the common horror fan. #Quote by Adam Green
Horror quotes by R.L. Stine
#13. She wasn't wearing a mask! The monstrous green face was her face. She wasn't wearing a monster costume. None of the Horrors were wearing costumes, I realized. I stepped back, raising my hands in horror as if trying to shield myself. #Quote by R.L. Stine
Horror quotes by Galileo Galilei
#14. In time you may discover everything that can be discovered, and still your progress will only be progress away from humanity. The distance between you and them can one day become so great that your joyous cry over some new gain could be answered by an universal shriek of horror. #Quote by Galileo Galilei
Horror quotes by William Cook
#15. It's safe to say that 'Horror,' as a fictional genre, has claim to it's own canon. There is a definite history that can be traced back to the origins of human language, both orally and written, and now multimedia based. We at this point, have access to the full gambit of 'genre' Horror in all its hybrid forms (electronically at least). Sub-genres ensure that Horror can and will multiply in its complexities and evolve along with human fears. #Quote by William Cook
Horror quotes by Kate Chisman
#16. The chandelier was wearing on its rubber support and the crack at the side of the ceiling hold was getting bigger. "One day that's going to fall on us and spear you through the heart," he said. I turned to kiss him on the shoulder and closed my eyes. #Quote by Kate Chisman
Horror quotes by Ellen Glasgow
#17. The attraction of horror is a mental, or even an intellectual, excitement, but the fascination of the repulsive, so noticeable incontemporary writing, can spring openly from some rotted substance within our civilization ... #Quote by Ellen Glasgow
Horror quotes by Eli Roth
#18. I feel like in the '90s, horror just lost its way and everything became so safe and watered-down. #Quote by Eli Roth
Horror quotes by Jenny Han
#19. I love your dress!" Kendra says to me.
"Thank you!" I say. "It's vintage."
She recoils in real horror. "Oh my God. Are the nineties considered vintage now?"
Trina says, "Yes, girl. Their nineties are our seventies."
She shudders. "That's terrifying. Are we old?"
"We're geriatric," Trina says, but cheerfully. #Quote by Jenny Han
Horror quotes by Brenna Yovanoff
#20. You presume to name those who have no name. We are pandemonium and disaster. We are the dancing, gibbering horror of the world. #Quote by Brenna Yovanoff
Horror quotes by Nicolas Gomez Davila
#21. Wisdom consists in being moderate not out of horror of excess, but out of love for the limit. #Quote by Nicolas Gomez Davila
Horror quotes by Nicolas Winding Refn
#22. I wanted to make a horror film about beauty. #Quote by Nicolas Winding Refn
Horror quotes by Alexandra Potter
#23. Missing someone has to be one of the worst human emotions. All the other feelings like anger and fear and horror get some much more airplay, as if their intensity gives them more value, but whereas those emotions come in violent bursts and are gone again, the gnawing ache of loss has to be simply endured. It's like background noise, it's always there, it never goes away. You just have to try to block it out, distract yourself, hope that tomorrow the hole they left behind has grown a little smaller. #Quote by Alexandra Potter
Horror quotes by Laura Mvula
#24. I remember listening to Miles Davis in the car with my dad. I had just done my Grade 5 piano exam, and I was quite cocky. I said, 'It sounds like he's played the wrong note there.' I remember the look of horror on my dad's face, and thinking, 'Wow, I have to figure out why that is not acceptable.' #Quote by Laura Mvula
Horror quotes by Derek Raymond
#25. It's wearying, like Caliban buttonholing you in hell and telling you the struggle he's having getting along with himself. #Quote by Derek Raymond
Horror quotes by Mircea Eliade
#26. I wanted to study them all; obviously, not as a specialist, but still rigorously, working directly from texts, because I have a horror of improvisation and hearsay learning. #Quote by Mircea Eliade
Horror quotes by Adam Smith
#27. The great source of both the misery and disorders of human life, seems to arise from over-rating the difference between one permanent situation and another. Avarice over-rates the difference between poverty and riches: ambition, that between a private and a public station: vain-glory, that between obscurity and extensive reputation. The person under the influence of any of those extravagant passions, is not only miserable in his actual situation, but is often disposed to disturb the peace of society, in order to arrive at that which he so foolishly admires. The slightest observation, however, might satisfy him, that, in all the ordinary situations of human life, a well-disposed mind may be equally calm, equally cheerful, and equally contented. Some of those situations may, no doubt, deserve to be preferred to others: but none of them can deserve to be pursued with that passionate ardour which drives us to violate the rules either of prudence or of justice; or to corrupt the future tranquillity of our minds, either by shame from the remembrance of our own folly, or by remorse from the horror of our own injustice. #Quote by Adam Smith
Horror quotes by William Tenn
#28. All those years of lurid magazine covers showing extremely nubile females being menaced in three distinct colors by assorted monstrosities; those horror movies, those invasion-from-outer-space novels, those Sunday supplement fright splashes - all those sturdy psychological ruts I had to re-track. Not to mention the shudders elicited by mention of 'worms,' the regulation distrust of even human "furriners," the superstitious dread of creatures who had no visible place to park a soul.

("Betelgeuse Bridge) #Quote by William Tenn
Horror quotes by Cassandra Clare
#29. There was a brief pause for them to evaluate the full horror of the situation. Magnus. personally, was in horror up to his elbows. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Horror quotes by Alan Moore
#30. Meat movies ... In which the horror rests with the idea of doing to humans what humans do each day to trees in their thousands." "Yes, as a symbol ... Close your eyes, Mrs. Cable. Close your eyes and shout 'timber'. #Quote by Alan Moore
Horror quotes by David Leslie Johnson
#31. In college, one of my favorite classes was a six-week class watching horror movies. 'The Bad Seed' was one of them and was the first time I had seen it, and I really fell in love with it. #Quote by David Leslie Johnson
Horror quotes by Charles Bukowski
#32. so we went up the hill. then we got into my room and I looked at them both. my pure and beautiful slim and magic little girl glorious fuck with the hair dangling down to the asshole, and next to her the tragedy of the ages: slime and horror, the machine gone wrong, frogs tortured by little boys and head-on car collisions and the spider taking in the ball-less buzzing fly and the landscape brain of Primo Carnera going down under the dull playboy guns of cocksure Maxie Baer - new heavyweight champ of America - I, I rushed at the Tragedy of the Ages - that fat slob of accumulated shit. #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Horror quotes by Emmanuelle De Maupassant
#33. Crook your finger;
they'll come closer.
Pull the covers tighter to your chin;
in beside you they'll creep. #Quote by Emmanuelle De Maupassant
Horror quotes by William Shakespeare
#34. Oh, injurious love, that respites me a life, whose very comfort is still a dying horror #Quote by William Shakespeare
Horror quotes by Hillary Clinton
#35. Iran has basically propped up Assad, who has waged an absolute war of horror against the Syrian people. And he has done anything he could to stay in power with the full support of the Iranians and including Iranian troops and Hezbollah from Lebanon, which are an Iranian proxy. #Quote by Hillary Clinton
Horror quotes by Sharon Olds
#36. The amount of horror one used to hear about in one village could be quite extreme. But one might not have heard about all the other villages' horrors at the same time. #Quote by Sharon Olds
Horror quotes by Luigi Pirandello
#37. And no one realizes we should all, always, look like that, each with his eyes full of horror at his own, inescapable solitude. #Quote by Luigi Pirandello
Horror quotes by Mercedes Lackey
#38. Everything written is at least in part fantasy.
Except maybe the national budget.
That's horror. #Quote by Mercedes Lackey
Horror quotes by Emma Chase
#39. I'm getting the feeling you don't want me to go. Are you ashamed of me? That hurts, Titty-bottum - I'm wounded."

She laughs disdainfully. "No you're not. And it has nothing to do with me not wanting you to go - you can't go. There are about thirty Austenites. As soon as they spot you, word will get out that you were in Castlebrook."

"Oh the horror, because Castlebrook is the hub of the social scene and media elites."

That was sarcasm, in case you weren't sure. Sarah is, which is why her eyes rolls behind her glasses. "It only takes one set of loose lips for the Queen to find out you were there when you're supposed to be here. And the producers don't want you going anywhere, anyway."

"I could ditch?"

She blows a puff of breath up at her dark bangs, which have fallen too close to her eyes.

And now I'm thinking about Sarah blowing things.

"And then you'll have to wear the monkey."

"I fear no man or monkey. But it is sort of creepy, isn't it?" I groan. "Fucking James."

Sarah mocks me. "Right, fucking James is trying to keep you safe and alive and not kidnapped, like it's his job or something. Bastard."

Huh, look at that. Sarah can do sarcasm too. That's sexy. And she said the word fucking - which makes me think about fucking her - on the bed, the sofa . . . Christ, in the nook. She would be absolutely wild in the nook.

Talk about a fantasy - that one's going st #Quote by Emma Chase
Horror quotes by Richard Matheson
#40. Miniture protoplasm, the dirty little bastard! #Quote by Richard Matheson
Horror quotes by Laura Kreitzer
#41. I thought it was just him," she says, ignoring him. "But then I found out I had the same effect, which means the Society did something to my head too."
Gage's eyes close, horror washing over him. "You really do love him."
"Yes. No. I don't know." Her cries start up again, piercing his heart. "Gage, help me."
"I love you," he says, holding her closer. "That's real. #Quote by Laura Kreitzer
Horror quotes by Laken Cane
#42. The witch wasn't a woman, not really. She was evil wrapped in horror, tied neatly with a bow of rancid blood and sour anguish. #Quote by Laken Cane
Horror quotes by Halo Scot
#43. I want to be a fly on the wall. Unseen. Unnoticed. But then I'd have to stop lighting things on fire. That's not going to happen. #Quote by Halo Scot
Horror quotes by John Updike
#44. Suddenly summoned to witness something great and horrendous, we keep fighting not to reduce it to our own smallness. #Quote by John Updike
Horror quotes by Jason Aaron
#45. While the whole 'God Butcher Saga' had elements of fantasy, sci-fi and horror all mixed together, 'The Accursed' is very much high-fantasy. Right out of the gate, we've got elves, talk of fantastic worlds, strange creatures, Malekith riding a flying tiger, as well as more dwarves, giants, trolls and elves than you can possibly count. #Quote by Jason Aaron
Horror quotes by Grace Walton
#46. But he had a niggling horror Lily might expire if he wasn't there watching over her. He knew it was irrational. But the feeling was overwhelming. #Quote by Grace Walton
Horror quotes by Alfred Korzybski
#47. Those ignorant "masters of our destinies" who regard humans as animals or as monstrous hybrids of natural and supernatural must be dethroned by scientific education.

Humans can be literally poisoned by false ideas and false teachings. Many people have a just horror at the thought of putting poison into tea or coffee, but seem unable to realize that, when they teach false ideas and false doctrines, they are poisoning the time-binding capacity of their fellow men and women. One has to stop and think! #Quote by Alfred Korzybski
Horror quotes by Marissa Meyer
#48. When finally she had stopped trembling, Scarlet peeled herself away from him. The vice of his arms reluctantly let her go and she dared to meet his gaze again. The shocked horror had left him, replaced with heat and longing and uncertainty. And fear, so much fear, but she didn't think it had anything to do with her nearly falling off the train. Lips tingling, she arched her neck toward him. #Quote by Marissa Meyer
Horror quotes by Tim Lebbon
#49. There's no denying that the way horror has been packaged in the past has done it no favours. Lurid black covers adorned with skulls, corpses crawling with insects and scantily clad maidens being chewed into by vampires
all good clean fun, but it doesn't do much to give the genre an air of respectability or seriousness to the casual browser. #Quote by Tim Lebbon
Horror quotes by Susan Ee
#50. You broke me out of the grasp of a living horror when I thought all hope was gone. You gave me the opportunity to crawl back to life when no one else could."
She glances over at me, her eyes shining in the dark. "You're a hero, Penryn, whether you like it or not. #Quote by Susan Ee
Horror quotes by James De Mille
#51. Will you stay here? No. Will you go back? You can't. We must, therefore, go on. That's is our only hope.
Horror is a feeling that cannot last long; human nature is incapable of supporting it.
Poverty, sicknes, and death are evils; but the worst of all evils is unrequited love. #Quote by James De Mille
Horror quotes by Ryukishi07
#52. Keiichi-kun. I found you. #Quote by Ryukishi07
Horror quotes by Voltaire
#53. Every sensible man, every honorable man, must hold the Christian sect in horror. #Quote by Voltaire
Horror quotes by Tara Eglington
#54. Guys always wonder why girls go to the bathroom in groups. The truth is, all the interesting stuff happens there. It's where you discuss what's going on outside the bathroom, help others out by lending them some blush or listening to their horror stories, and prepare yourself to go back into battle. You never know what you might find out in a bathroom #Quote by Tara Eglington
Horror quotes by Henry James
#55. I had the view of a castle of romance inhabited by a rosy spirit, such a place as would somehow, for diversion of the young idea, take all colour out of story-books and fairy-tales. Was n't it just a story-book over which I had fallen a-doze and a-dream? #Quote by Henry James
Horror quotes by Dennis Sharpe
#56. This guy sounds like all the bad guys from the last ten years of murder movies all rolled into one. Like he might be the worst of those books you have there. If he was real, and really like that, then I should arrest him, right?" Matthew asked, hoping he could show the boy that he would protect him, and he could tell him the truth now.
"No, Deputy. Because he is real, and he is really like that, and you should run. #Quote by Dennis Sharpe
Horror quotes by Morris Dees
#57. The focus of tolerance education is to deal with the concept of equality and fairness. We need to establish confidence with children that there is more goodness than horror in this world. #Quote by Morris Dees
Horror quotes by Gregg Olsen
#58. As the campfire burned to an ashy bowl of red-hot embers, the boys would ramble on, piling up horror upon horror, like cordwood stacked under a blood-red-barked madrona tree. #Quote by Gregg Olsen
Horror quotes by Tattoo Savage Magazine
#59. Hart has proven he has talent and there is a market out there for queasy, uneasy, in-yo'-face, material."
-Tattoo Savage Magazine #Quote by Tattoo Savage Magazine
Horror quotes by American Horror Story
#60. Oh honey... goddesses don't speak in whispers... they scream #Quote by American Horror Story
Horror quotes by Aaron Stanford
#61. Wes Craven is obviously a horror film icon so I was definitely very interested in bringing something back to life that Wes had created. #Quote by Aaron Stanford
Horror quotes by Koji Suzuki
#62. Asakawa himself didn't much care if the company made money or lost it. All that mattered to him was whether or not the work was engaging. No matter how easy a job was physically, if it didn't involve imagination, it usually ended up exhausting you. #Quote by Koji Suzuki
Horror quotes by Charles Frazier
#63. The horror is other people. The things they think up to do to you. #Quote by Charles Frazier
Horror quotes by Karasu Yamazaki
#64. Adults are always like that, They only see what they want to see, As such, I am disapointed in them, but... That's convenient for me. - Fujisawa Ayana #Quote by Karasu Yamazaki
Horror quotes by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau
#65. The only thing I find difficult to watch - horror movies - not that I don't like them. Like 'The Shining,' it's one of my favorite movies, but it's terrifying. I feel like I've watched a marathon afterwards. #Quote by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau
Horror quotes by Hugh Howey
#66. Fucking NASA. In a horror movie, when everyone is hugging their shins and shouting for the main character to turn and run, or crawl under the bed, or call the cops, or grab a gun, NASA would be the dude in the back shouting, Go see what made that noise! And take a flashlight! #Quote by Hugh Howey
Horror quotes by Anne Bronte
#67. The next visit I paid to Nancy Brown was in the second week in March: for, though I had many spare minutes during the day, I seldom could look upon an hour as entirely my own; since, when everything was left to the caprices of Miss Matilda and her sister, there could be no order or regularity. Whatever occupation I chose, when not actually busied about them or their concerns, I had, as it were, to keep my loins girded, my shoes on my feet, and my staff in my hand; for not to be immediately forthcoming when called for, was regarded as a grave and inexcusable offence: not only by my pupils and their mother, but by the very servant, who came in breathless haste to call me, exclaiming 'You're to go to the school-room directly, mum- the young ladies is WAITING!!' Climax of horror! actually waiting for their governess!!! #Quote by Anne Bronte
Horror quotes by Mesa Selimovic
#68. Fear is flooding over me, like water.
The living know nothing. Teach me, dead ones, how to die without fear, or at least without horror. Because death is senseless, as is life. #Quote by Mesa Selimovic
Horror quotes by Peter Benchley
#69. What was it? What could it
His last thought was surprise. #Quote by Peter Benchley
Horror quotes by Don Roff
#70. If you focus on the humanity of your stories, your characters, then the horror will be stronger, scarier. Without the humanity, the horror becomes nothing more than a tawdry parlor trick. All flash and no magic, and worst of all, no heart. #Quote by Don Roff
Horror quotes by Olaf Stapledon
#71. The truth of the matter was something much more subtle and tremendous than any plain physical miracle could ever be. But never mind that. The important thing was that, when I did see the stars (riotously darting in all directions according to the caprice of their own wild natures, yet in every movement confirming the law), the whole tangled horror that had tormented me finally presented itself to me in its truth and beautiful shape. And I knew that the first, blind stage of my childhood had ended. #Quote by Olaf Stapledon
Horror quotes by Cassandra Clare
#72. Think of what it must have been like in the Scholomance for all those years it was closed," said Dru, her eyes gleaming with horror-movie delight. "All the way up in the mountains, totally abandoned and dark, full of spiders and ghosts and shadows ... "
"If you want to think about somewhere scary, think about the Bone City," said Livvy. The City of Bones was where the Silent Brothers lived: It was an underground place of networked tunnels built out of the ashes of dead Shadowhunters.
"I'd like to go to the Scholomance," interrupted Ty.
"I wouldn't," said Livvy. "Centurions aren't allowed to have parabatai."
"I'd like to go anyway," said Ty. "You could come too if you wanted."
"I don't want to go to the Scholomance," said Livvy. "It's in the middle of the Carpathian Mountains. It's freezing there, and there are bears."
Ty's face lit up as it often did at the mention of animals. "There are bears?"
"Enough chatter," said Diana. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Horror quotes by Queen Noor Of Jordan
#73. Everyone I knew, including my new friends in Jordan, expressed horror at the realities of the Holocaust. But they resented, as I was growing to, how Arabs were cast as the aggressors in the dispute between Israel and the Arab countries, when it was their land that had been seized to resolve a European political problem. #Quote by Queen Noor Of Jordan
Horror quotes by Sydney Smith
#74. What would life be without arithmetic, but a scene of horrors? #Quote by Sydney Smith
Horror quotes by Mary Elizabeth Winstead
#75. I'm a fan of films in general; I mean, I don't think I've ever considered myself specifically a horror fan even though I do enjoy horror films, find them really entertaining. #Quote by Mary Elizabeth Winstead
Horror quotes by Herman Melville
#76. How feeble is all language to describe the horrors we inflict upon these wretches, whom we mason up in the cells of our prisons, and condemn to perpetual solitude in the very heart of our population. #Quote by Herman Melville
Horror quotes by Thomas M. Disch
#77. Sanity, however, was so integral to his character that neither hysteria nor horror could long have their way with him. #Quote by Thomas M. Disch
Horror quotes by Andrew Tudor
#78. Occasional observers of horror movies have a nasty habit of asking why it is that there is always some poor misguided soul who opens the door to the cellar or to the attic or to the crypt when it's quite clear that no sane person would even consider it. #Quote by Andrew Tudor
Horror quotes by Peter Ackroyd
#79. He was walking around in circles, the smell of the old furniture suddenly very distinct. There was a newspaper in his hand and he started reading it, paying particular attention to the headlines which seemed to be floating towards him so that now a band of black print encircled his forehead. He was curled upon the bed, hugging his knees, when the next horror came upon him: those who heard him last night would now have to report his theft, and his employer would call the police. He saw how the policeman took the telephone call at the station; how his name and address were spoken out loud; how he looked down at the floor as they led him away; how he was in the dock, forced to answer questions about himself, and now he was in a cell and had lost control of his own body. He was staring out of the window at the passing clouds when it occurred to him that he should write to his employer, explaining his drunkenness and confessing that he invented the story of theft; but who would believe him? It was always said that in drink there was truth, and perhaps it was true that he was a convicted thief. He began to sing,

One fine day in the middle of the night,
Two dead men got up to fight

and then he knew what was meant by madness. #Quote by Peter Ackroyd
Horror quotes by Peter Straub
#80. The materials of genre - specifically the paired genres of horror and the fantastic - in no way require the constrictions of formulaic treatment, and in fact naturally extend and evolve into the methods and concerns of its wider context, general literature. #Quote by Peter Straub
Horror quotes by E.T.A. Hoffmann
#81. There are ... otherwise quite decent people who are so dull of nature that they believe that they must attribute the swift flight of fancy to some illness of the psyche, and thus it happens that this or that writer is said to create not other than while imbibing intoxicating drink or that his fantasies are the result of overexcited nerves and resulting fever. But who can fail to know that, while a state of psychical excitement caused by the one or other stimulant may indeed generate some lucky and brilliant ideas, it can never produce a well-founded, substantial work of art that requires the utmost presence of mind. #Quote by E.T.A. Hoffmann
Horror quotes by Patrick O'Brian
#82. Physically he was tired and his body relaxed throughout its entire length; his mind was in much the same state, floating free, detached, as though he had taken his old favourite, the tincture of laudanum. He felt no particular anxiety. The attempt must either succeed or fail: he hoped with all his heart for success, but 'all his heart' did not amount to a great deal now that some essential part of its core seemed to have died. Yet on the other hand he felt more able to command success in that it meant no less to him - to command it with a strength that arose not from a fundamental indifference to his own fate but from something resembling it that he could not define; it had a resemblance to despair, but a despair long past, with the horror taken out of it. #Quote by Patrick O'Brian
Horror quotes by Jason Reitman
#83. It's funny, I can sit through the worst horror film ever made but even a quite good romantic comedy can drive me nuts. #Quote by Jason Reitman
Horror quotes by D. Harlan Wilson
#84. Reality is shaped by the forces that destroy it. #Quote by D. Harlan Wilson
Horror quotes by Charles Baudelaire
#85. The vices of man, as full of horror as one might suppose them to be, contain the proof (if in nothing else but their infinitely expandable nature) of his taste for the infinite; only, it is a taste that often takes a wrong turn. #Quote by Charles Baudelaire
Horror quotes by Kevin Wallis
#86. He wasn't sure why he felt so compelled to follow the singing, or why he needed to bring the foot with him, but he knew the two phenomena were connected. And in the midst of the mystery lay his father. His father's sanity. Nicholas was sure of this. #Quote by Kevin Wallis
Horror quotes by Deyth Banger
#87. If I am horror writer, I should listen to metal???
- Why not to dubstep??? Or Deathstep??? #Quote by Deyth Banger
Horror quotes by Clifford D. Simak
#88. And yet he had learned to submerge that sense of horror, to disregard the outward appearance of it, to regard all life as brother life, to meet all things as people. #Quote by Clifford D. Simak
Horror quotes by Helen Keller
#89. I look upon the whole world as my fatherland, & every war has to me the horror od a family feud. I look upon the true patriotism as the brotherhood of man & the service to of all to all. The only fighting that saves is the one that helps the world toward liberty, justice & an abundant life for all. #Quote by Helen Keller
Horror quotes by Tara Reid
#90. I love horror movies. A good horror movie is always great. #Quote by Tara Reid
Horror quotes by Leigh Lezark
#91. I get startled really easily, so I hate horror films. I have to close my eyes when I think something is going to make me jump, because I just scream. #Quote by Leigh Lezark
Horror quotes by Edgar Cantero
#92. Flying monkeys exist in literature, Nate," Kerri said. "Horror writers who get laid exist in literature. #Quote by Edgar Cantero
Horror quotes by Nick Harkaway
#93. The First World War was a horror of gas, industrialised slaughter, fear, and appalling human suffering. #Quote by Nick Harkaway
Horror quotes by Albert Schweitzer
#94. The ethic of Reverence for Life prompts us to keep each other alert to what troubles us and to speak and act dauntlessly together in discharging the responsibility that we feel. It keeps us watching together for opportunities to bring some sort of help to animals in recompense for the great misery that men inflict upon them, and thus for a moment we escape from the incomprehensible horror of existence. #Quote by Albert Schweitzer
Horror quotes by Octavia Butler
#95. You are horror and beauty in rare combination. #Quote by Octavia Butler
Horror quotes by Audre Lorde
#96. The principal horror of any system which defines the good in terms of profit rather than in terms of human need, or which defines the human need to the exclusion of the psychic and emotional components of that need - the principal horror of such a system is that it robs our work of its erotic value, its erotic power and life appeal and fulfillment. Such a system reduces work to a travesty of necessities, a duty by which we earn bread or oblivion for ourselves and those we love. But this is tantamount to blinding a painter and then telling her to improve her work, and to enjoy the act of painting. It's not only next to impossible, it is also profoundly cruel. #Quote by Audre Lorde
Horror quotes by Christine Fonseca
#97. He would die in this room, buried alive by the weight of his life. #Quote by Christine Fonseca
Horror quotes by Lisa Sanchez
#98. A Bobfoc. Body off Baywatch, face off crimewatch."
I drew in a loud breath in mock horror. "That's awful."
"Maybe, but it's true," he said. "Her face would drive rats from a barn! #Quote by Lisa Sanchez
Horror quotes by Mike Mignola
#99. The idea of a Frankenstein-like creature is something I've done several times. It's such an icon of the horror scene. #Quote by Mike Mignola
Horror quotes by Miklos Nyiszli
#100. Poor friend and learned physician, my sensitive and gentle companion, instead of treating and curing the sick you yourself have fallen beneath the yoke of death, and now belong to death's kingdom. For many months you have witnessed such suffering and horror as the human mind can scarcely conceive, as he who sees cannot believe. Perhaps it is for the best that your nerves have betrayed you, that a benevolent veil of forgetfulness has fallen upon your mind. Now, at least, you need not fret or worry about what the future may hold in store for you. #Quote by Miklos Nyiszli
Horror quotes by Stephen King
#101. I knew there were no ghosts in there, but on the other hand, what if there were? #Quote by Stephen King
Horror quotes by Beverley Price
#102. True vampires that want to build a strong family does not go around turning people just because they want to. But even the most sensible of vampire can be tempted by beauty. When you come across someone whose beauty seems to be made of the stars themselves, then you want to preserve that beauty forever. Despite knowing that it may not be the best idea in the world. But then beauty is a power all of its own. #Quote by Beverley Price
Horror quotes by Terry Spear
#103. What did he call them? Lupus garous? Fancy name for a horror-flick creature. #Quote by Terry Spear
Horror quotes by Dennis Etchison
#104. I'm living in a horror movie, all right. Only the horror doesn't have anything to do with necrophilia or black masses or crosses hung upside down, or with vampires who can't swim or zombies who work in sugar cane fields and can't stop shambling off cliffs when some guy with a jawbreaker accent says so, No, this is real life. It was running out all around him. the footprints of assassins and neo-fascists and government officials with secret closets full of tutus, private armies training in ships named after the wives of oilmen, of drunken presidents in bed with the mob and the cartels that slice up the world and stick FOR SALE signs on the pieces; while the real kings of earth lie moldering in their graves, their brains stolen away in the night and their bullet wounds altered to match storybook plots that would be laughed out of any preschool classroom. And all this while the billions sweat and grow old like the living dead, their lifeblood sucked dry by the takers of souls who need our labor to feed a hunger for power without end. The undead? What a cheapjack explanation for so much misery. There is more than enough to account for it all without falling back on the unnameable. It's already here. The trick is to see it and not flinch- there's no future in denial. It's as simple, and as enormous, as that. The truth, however bleak, was almost comforting. #Quote by Dennis Etchison
Horror quotes by Thomas Pynchon
#105. You came to talk about the play," he said. "Let me discourage you. It was written to entertain people. Like horror movies. It isn't literature, it doesn't mean anything. Wharfinger was no Shakespeare." "Who was he?" she said. "Who was Shakespeare? It was a long time ago. #Quote by Thomas Pynchon
Horror quotes by Deyth Banger
#106. Science/horror/Non-Fiction/Technology/Music/Games/Space... these are the subjects of future. The other again will develop but not with such speed like these here. #Quote by Deyth Banger
Horror quotes by Alice Sebold
#107. For three nights he hadn't known how to touch my mother or what to say. Before, they had never found themselves broken together. Usually, it was one needing the other but not both needing each other, and so there had been a way, by touching, to borrow the stronger one's strength. And they had never understood, as they did now, what the word horror meant.

~pgs 20-21 #Quote by Alice Sebold
Horror quotes by Yusef Komunyakaa
#108. Vietnam helped me to look at the horror and terror in the hearts of people and realize how we can't aim guns and set booby traps for people we have never spoken a word to. That kind of impersonal violence mystifies me. #Quote by Yusef Komunyakaa
Horror quotes by Thomas S. Flowers
#109. Rebecca uttered a low dry laugh, not facetiously, but more like a stitch coming apart at the seam. A wound opened. Her eyes were opening to a world she had denied for so long. She looked up at Frank and knew, just like in the books, hatred, real hatred is a Gollum that hides under the mountain of our hearts. It buries itself deep underground where no light can touch. And it waits. Rebecca thought of Tolkien and Bilbo and Frodo and that old grey wizard, she thought that maybe they were right. Perhaps "there are older and fouler things in the deep places of the world - in the deep places of our hearts." And as she sat on the floor with Tom Johnson's Glock aimed at her husband's head, Rebecca looked into the space where his eyes should have been. She looked at what was now only darkness and felt something on the other side, something not her husband, looking back. #Quote by Thomas S. Flowers
Horror quotes by Alan Kinross
#110. She hadn't broken a nail in years; she could rip holes in walls and still look well manicured. #Quote by Alan Kinross
Horror quotes by Simone De Beauvoir
#111. It is a mistake to seek in fantasies the key to concrete behaviour; for fantasies are created and cherished as fantasies. The little girl who dreams of violation with mingled horror and acquiescence does not really wish to be violated and if such a thing should happen it would be a hateful calamity. #Quote by Simone De Beauvoir
Horror quotes by Robert Desnos
#112. The stranger was still smiling. He transformed himself into a rose bush and entwined me. My Christian education meant that ever since childhood I have had a horror of vice and it was not without a quite understandable terror that I discerned the pleasure I felt in the embrace of this vigorous bush whose branches gradually mingled with my limbs, my hair and my looks. When one of its flowers came apart in my mouth, I could feel myself grasping the sorcerer in my arms in my turn. He was transformed into a torrent, and I was a barge, into desert and I was smoke, into a car and I was a road, into a man and I was a woman. 'What we are doing is very wrong,' he said and was off. #Quote by Robert Desnos
Horror quotes by Joss Whedon
#113. I love fantasy. I love horror. I love musicals. Whatever doesn't really happen in life is what I'm interested in. As a way of commenting on everything that does happen in life, because ultimately the only thing I'm really interested in is people. #Quote by Joss Whedon
Horror quotes by Jonathan Lethem
#114. I have a horror of silence while I'm writing. It's like the universe is howling at me if I don't have it. #Quote by Jonathan Lethem
Horror quotes by Ann Greyson
#115. they slowly turned their heads to face her and their bodies followed after. They all turned around at the same time, but in slow motion. It was like something out of a horror movie. All the while, "Another Brick in the Wall, Pt. 2" by Pink Floyd was playing at a maximum volume on the stereo of the SUV. #Quote by Ann Greyson
Horror quotes by Keith Steinbaum
#116. We did a Tarot
card reading. She told me different things, most of them depressing and
worth forgetting. But what I'll always remember is her prediction of my
death, and how I'd become a kind of ghost, 'wandering' she said, with a
'spiritual restlessness'. #Quote by Keith Steinbaum
Horror quotes by Thomas Hobbes
#117. All generous minds have a horror of what are commonly called 'Facts'. They are the brute beasts of the intellectual domain. #Quote by Thomas Hobbes
Horror quotes by Stephen King
#118. Until that afternoon in October four years ago, I hadn't known dogs could scream. #Quote by Stephen King
Horror quotes by Pearl S. Buck
#119. He saw on the paper a picture of a man, white-skinned, who hung upon a crosspiece of wood. The man was without clothes except for a bit about his loins, and to all appearences he was dead, since his head drooped upon his shoulder and his eyes were closed above his bearded lips. Wang Lung looked at the pictured man in horror and with increasing interest. #Quote by Pearl S. Buck
Horror quotes by Leta Blake
#120. That's when Will notices the unfamiliar weight on his finger. He holds his hand up and the room tilts sideways. "Oh my God." In a whoosh of tumbling horror, Will remembers it all. No, no, this can't be happening. "We got married." Patrick #Quote by Leta Blake
Horror quotes by Alfred Lord Tennyson
#121. My life has crept so long on a broken wing Through cells of madness, haunts of horror and fear, That I come to be grateful at last for a little thing. #Quote by Alfred Lord Tennyson
Horror quotes by Clive Barker
#122. Mutilation is the badge that can never be taken off, and sets us apart from all others. Pain is important to the bonding-a physical horror that bonds us ever tighter to all those who have partaken. The intensity of the experience helps to widen the gulf between us and those who have not shared. #Quote by Clive Barker
Horror quotes by Halo Scot
#123. A man with morals is a rarity at the end of the world. #Quote by Halo Scot
Horror quotes by Kate Bowler
#124. I can't reconcile the way that the world is jolted by events that are wonderful and terrible, the gorgeous and the tragic. Except that I am beginning to believe that these opposites do not cancel each other out. I see a middle aged woman in the waiting room of the cancer clinic, her arms wrapped around the frail frame of her son. She squeezes him tightly, oblivious to the way he looks down at her sheepishly. He laughs after a minute, a hostage to her impervious love. Joy persists somehow and I soak it in. The horror of cancer has made everything seem like it is painted in bright colors. I think the same thoughts again and again. Life is so beautiful. Life is so hard. #Quote by Kate Bowler
Horror quotes by H.S. Crow
#125. The elasticity of our dreams can take us to unspoken worlds, but our innate horror of the unknown is what weighs us down. Fight it.

Travel to the isolated coils of smoldering dust trapped in our dusky sky or explore the unseen timeless vibration of dancing particles that fashions existence. Whatever choice you make can change your life forever. The same applies to a story. Words are the atoms of a tale, and together they compose a universe. #Quote by H.S. Crow
Horror quotes by Nikki Rae
#126. Tim Curry is God. He will distract me. #Quote by Nikki Rae
Horror quotes by Taylor Hackford
#127. The most disgusting, appalling horror of our world that we live in, to me, is sex trafficking and the enslavement of men and women, boys and girls, in the sex industry. That is the most horrific, horrific thing that's happening and it's happening in all of our towns here in Los Angeles, in New York, in London, in Paris, all over the world, and I think that's really what has to be addressed. #Quote by Taylor Hackford
Horror quotes by Christopher Pike
#128. If I become like you, I will have no will of my own. I will have no individuality, I will just be your puppet.'
'True.' Sio smiled thinly. 'But even a puppet may dance before its strings are drawn tight. You will dance, Cass, and the heavens will applaud you. #Quote by Christopher Pike
Horror quotes by Jerome A. Miller
#129. This is why there is something awful about human freedom. This power to make a choice which will never cease to reverberate. #Quote by Jerome A. Miller
Horror quotes by Bryan Fuller
#130. The definition of horror is pretty broad. What causes us "horror" is actually a many splendored thing (laughs). It can be hard to make horror accessible, and that's what I think Silence of the Lambs did so brilliantly - it was an accessible horror story, the villain was a monster, and the protagonist was pure of heart and upstanding so it had all of these great iconographic elements of classic storytelling. It was perceived less as a horror movie than an effective thriller, but make no mistake, it was a horror movie and was sort of sneaky that way. #Quote by Bryan Fuller
Horror quotes by Sui Ishida
#131. Even if it's a life in shackles, if you have somebody who accepts you for what you really are, how reassuring would that be? #Quote by Sui Ishida
Horror quotes by Darren Shan
#132. I always loved horror, but I read all sorts of books. My favourite as a child was 'The Secret Garden' which has a big influence on Lord Loss, believe it or not! #Quote by Darren Shan
Horror quotes by E.A. Bucchianeri
#133. If on thoughts of death we are fed,
Thus, a coffin, became my bed. #Quote by E.A. Bucchianeri
Horror quotes by Justin Alcala
#134. Which is the true nightmare, the horrific dream that you have in your sleep or the dissatisfied reality that awaits you when you awake? #Quote by Justin Alcala
Horror quotes by T.S. Pettibone
#135. Let the deal be spoken first and then manipulate it to your advantage. #Quote by T.S. Pettibone
Horror quotes by Mark Twain
#136. THERE were two "Reigns of Terror," if we would but remember it and consider it; the one wrought murder in hot passion, the other in heartless cold blood; the one lasted mere months, the other had lasted a thousand years; the one inflicted death upon ten thousand persons, the other upon a hundred millions; but our shudders are all for the "horrors" of the minor Terror, the momentary Terror, so to speak; whereas, what is the horror of swift death by the axe, compared with lifelong death from hunger, cold, insult, cruelty, and heart-break? What is swift death by lightning compared with death by slow fire at the stake? A city cemetery could contain the coffins filled by that brief Terror which we have all been so diligently taught to shiver at and mourn over; but all France could hardly contain the coffins filled by that older and real Terror - that unspeakably bitter and awful Terror which none of us has been taught to see in its vastness or pity as it deserves. #Quote by Mark Twain
Horror quotes by Jules Cassard
#137. I suspect that many of the horror stories about jail are greatly exaggerated, but still, I wouldn't want to pass out in one. #Quote by Jules Cassard
Horror quotes by Marlon Brando
#138. Horror ... and moral terror ... are your friends. #Quote by Marlon Brando
Horror quotes by Tim Curran
#139. the fog was fog and yet was not fog. it was liquid and solid, then gas, then a roiling putrescence expanding like a balloon blown with filth. #Quote by Tim Curran
Horror quotes by Guillermo Del Toro
#140. I think when the joke comes from the situation in a horror film, it's really great. I don't like jokey horror films like where people are cracking a joke or being post-modern about it. #Quote by Guillermo Del Toro
Horror quotes by Arthur Machen
#141. Clarke, in the deep folds of dream, was conscious that the path from his father's house had led him into an undiscovered country, and he was wondering at the strangeness of it all, when suddenly, in place of the hum and murmur of the summer, an infinite silence seemed to fall on all things, and the wood was hushed, and for a moment in time he stood face to face there with a presence, that was neither man nor beast, neither the living nor the dead, but all things mingled, the form of all things but devoid of all form. And in that moment, the sacrament of body and soul was dissolved, and a voice seemed to cry "Let us go hence," and then the darkness of darkness beyond the stars, the darkness of everlasting. #Quote by Arthur Machen
Horror quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#142. Horror stories give us a way of exhausting our emotions around social issues, like a woman's right to an abortion, which I always thought was the core of 'Rosemary's Baby,' or the backlash against feminism which I always thought was the core to 'Stepford Wives.' #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Horror quotes by Apryl Baker
#143. We all have that inner fear of the dark, no matter how old we get. It's an ingrained instinct to fear the velvety blackness of the night, of things you can't quite see, but know deep down in your bones is there, waiting. #Quote by Apryl Baker
Horror quotes by Deyth Banger
#144. Horror make me awake and when I don't think about it but I read it it make me sleepy! #Quote by Deyth Banger
Horror quotes by Lauren Myracle
#145. If you sense that someone feels disconnected, reach out to them," the speaker urges. "buy them a soda. Compliment their new hairdo. It'll make them feel better, and you'll feel better knowing you've been a channel of grace."
Jolene leans over and whispers, "My pen is feeling disconnected. Will you be a channel of grave and get it for me?"
Chelsea, quit picking at your scab," a girl in front of me says to her friend as we file out. "It's gross." Then she gasps in mock horror. "Or maybe it's a cry for help! Be strong, Chelsea! Stay with the living! #Quote by Lauren Myracle
Horror quotes by Max Hastings
#146. Winston Churchill wrote afterwards: 'No part of the Great War compares in interest with its opening. The measured, silent drawing together of gigantic forces, the uncertainty of their movements and positions, the number of unknown and unknowable facts made the first collision a drama never surpassed. Nor was there any other period in the War when the general battle was waged on so great a scale, when the slaughter was so swift or the stakes so high. Moreover, in the beginning, our faculties of wonder, horror, or excitement had not been cauterized and deadened by the furnace fires of years. #Quote by Max Hastings
Horror quotes by Rebecca McNutt
#147. Sometimes Geraldine feels like she can drive forever. Maybe that's partially why she took a job at Milo General Motors. Driving is the best means of escape that the human race has, at least, that's her opinion. She's never had the guts to try drugs before, both because her sister was a junkie in the last few months she knew her, and because she's heard the overdose horror stories, seen 'Requiem for a Dream', smelled the vapours of a meth lab that Julia's boyfriend built, heard the crunching glass of crack vials and heroine needles when they happen to break. Even this alone is too surreal, not to mention that if she were high or tripping on acid or whatever the drug of choice may be, this would give the ghosts more power to morph into something even more nightmarish than they already are. #Quote by Rebecca McNutt
Horror quotes by Poppy Z. Brite
#148. I don't like to talk about work in progress, but the novel I'm working on now is definitely not horror. #Quote by Poppy Z. Brite
Horror quotes by Halo Scot
#149. Bring it all down, love. Let it all burn. #Quote by Halo Scot
Horror quotes by Lynne Truss
#150. If this satanic sprinkling of redundant apostrophes causes no little gasp of horror or quickening of the pulse, you should probably put down this book. By all means congratulate yourself that you are not a pedant or even a stickler; that you are happily equipped to live in a world of plummeting punctuation standards; but just don't bother to go any further. #Quote by Lynne Truss
Horror quotes by Padraig Pearse
#151. Blood is a cleansing and sanctifying thing, and the nation that regards it as the final horror has lost its manhood ... there are many things more horrible than bloodshed, and slavery is one of them! #Quote by Padraig Pearse
Horror quotes by Richard Ramirez
#152. I read suspense and horror, somethings that intrigue me. I have always been fascinated by death. #Quote by Richard Ramirez
Horror quotes by Ian McClellan
#153. Todd's wife was one of those women with a forced smile perpetually cemented on her face. Even after being chased by a mob of homicidal maniacs and attempting to barricade doors with barstools she kept up appearances, practicing for the days when her husband would be running for public office. When she saw her son poking at their former mail carrier's dead body a look of utter horror came across her face for the slightest instant. She caught herself and put that smile back on so quickly Will wondered if she might have pulled a few cheek muscles.
"Trevor!" she hissed through clenched teeth. "Trevor, you get away from that this instant! You don't know what kind of diseases that man had. Children shouldn't play with dead things."
Will looked at Todd and smirked. "Cute kid. How many of those things do you think are out there? #Quote by Ian McClellan
Horror quotes by Elizabeth Morgan
#154. Ever since I saw you" - she pulled me closer and draped both of my legs over her shoulders. Her eyes blazed with hunger - "I have just wanted to eat you up. #Quote by Elizabeth Morgan

#155. It ain't the blows we're dealt that matter, but the ones we survive. #Quote by Stephen King
Horror quotes by Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht
#156. We know - more from the faces immortalized on a handful of photographs than from the words of survivors - that the women and men who experienced that moment in Hiroshima believed they had encountered the beginning of the end of the world. There will never be enough future to prove them wrong. #Quote by Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht
Horror quotes by Anna Kendrick
#157. I'm into 'The Walking Dead,' 'Shaun of the Dead,' obviously, and I've seen all the Romero movies. I am a classic zombie queen. And I love the White Walkers on 'Game of Thrones.' Weirdly, it wasn't until pretty late in life that I found my entry point into horror films. #Quote by Anna Kendrick
Horror quotes by Annie Dillard
#158. Theirs is the mystery of continuous creation and all that providence implies: the uncertainty of vision, the horror of the fixed, the dissolution of the present, the intricacy of beauty, the pressure of fecundity, the elusiveness of the free, and the flawed nature of perfection. #Quote by Annie Dillard
Horror quotes by Michael Uslan
#159. If you talk about genres - I don't care if you're talking about war, Westerns, science fiction, horror, fantasy, humor, romance - anything you can find, strolling the aisles of a Borders or a Barnes & Noble, I can bring you many comic books representing each genre. #Quote by Michael Uslan
Horror quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#160. There's a famous quote regarding Polanski. Perhaps Jack Nicholson said it, perhaps someone else, but it goes, "Polanski is the five-foot Pole I wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole." So, yes, the world seems to despise him. I, however, love his work. It's so much funnier and well-constructed than the pompous stuff of Kubrick. Polanski balances between camp and horror in much the same way Billy Wilder did. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Horror quotes by Sebastian Barry
#161. I'll keep in touch, says Lige, ain't going to let you go. This makes John Coke very quiet. John is a tall man and thin and maybe he don't have much painted on his face. He likes to make his decisions and then do a thing. He has my back and he wants the best world for Winona and he don't neglect his pals. When Lige Magan intimates his seeming love for him, John Cole does show something on his face though. Maybe remembers the old sick days when John Cole couldn't move a muscle and that Lige danced attendance. Why should a man help another man? No need, the world don't care about that. The world is just a passing parade of cruel moments and long drear stretches where nothing is going on but the chicory drinking and whiskey and cards. No requirement for nothing else tucked in there. We're strange people, soldiers stuck out in wars. We ain't saying no laws in Washington. We ain't walking on yon great lawns. Storms kill us, and battles, and the earth closes over and no one need say a word and I don't believe we mind. Happy to breathe because we seen terror and horror and then for a while they ain't in dominion. Bibles weren't wrote for us nor any books. We ain't maybe what people do call human since we ain't partaking in the bread of heaven. But if God was trying to make an excuse for us He might point at that strange love between us. Like when you fumbling about in the darkness and you light a lamp and the light comes up and rescue things. Objects in a room and the face of the man #Quote by Sebastian Barry
Horror quotes by Edgar Allan Poe
#162. I blush, I burn, I shudder, while I pen the damnable atrocity. #Quote by Edgar Allan Poe
Horror quotes by Eddie Vedder
#163. She said to me, over the phone
She wanted to see other people
I thought, Well then, look around. They're everywhere
Said that she was confused...
I thought, Darling, join the club
24 years old, Mid-life crisis
Nowadays hits you when you're young
I hung up, She called back, I hung up again
The process had already started
At least it happened quick
I swear, I died inside that night
My friend, he called
I didn't mention a thing
The last thing he said was, Be sound
I contemplated an awful thing, I hate to admit
I just thought those would be such appropriate last words
But I'm still here
And small
So small.. How could this struggle seem so big?
So big...
While the palms in the breeze still blow green
And the waves in the sea still absolute blue
But the horror
Every single thing I see is a reminder of her
Never thought I'd curse the day I met her
And since she's gone and wouldn't hear
Who would care? What good would that do?
But I'm still here
So I imagine in a month...or 12
I'll be somewhere having a drink
Laughing at a stupid joke
Or just another stupid thing
And I can see myself stopping short
Drifting out of the present
Sucked by the undertow and pulled out deep
And there I am, standing
Wet grass and white headstones all in rows
And in the distance there's one, off on its own
S #Quote by Eddie Vedder
Horror quotes by H.P. Lovecraft
#164. Horror and the unknown or the strange are always closely connected so that it is hard to create a convincing picture of shattered natural law or cosmic alienage or 'outsideness' without laying stress on the emotion of fear. #Quote by H.P. Lovecraft
Horror quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#165. Val- I'm on Bourbon– (Acheron)
I will not venture down that street of crass iniquities and plebeian horror, Acheron. It is the cesspit of humanity. (Valerius) #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Horror quotes by Mary Roach
#166. I write all this with respect for the
possibility that rather than some kind of
contact with the consciousness of my donor's
heart, these are merely hallucinations from
the medications or my own projections. I know
this is a very slippery slope….

What came to me in the first contact….was the
horror of dying. The utter suddenness, shock,
and surprise of it all….The feeling of being
ripped off and the dread of dying before your
time….This and two other incidents are by far
the most terrifying experiences I have ever

What came to me on the second occasion was my
donor's experience of having his heart being
cut out of his chest and transplanted. There
was a profound sense of violation by a
mysterious, omnipotent outside force….

…The third episode was quite different than
the previous two. This time the consciousness
of my donor's heart was in the present
tense….He was struggling to figure out where
he was, even what he was….It was as if none of
your senses worked….An extremely frightening
awareness of total dislocation….As if you are
reaching with your hands to grasp
something…but every time you reach forward
your fingers end up only clutching thin air. #Quote by Mary Roach
Horror quotes by Harry Bingham
#167. It's worse than I'd thought. I'm not just in a horror movie, I'm a dwarf in a horror movie. #Quote by Harry Bingham
Horror quotes by Liian Varus
#168. Poetry comes within, not the person you pretend to be out there... Take your fears, your failures, your flaws and dip your pen in that ink, For when it comes to writing something beautiful, we all must first face the monsters, we would rather just erase. #Quote by Liian Varus
Horror quotes by Stevie Smith
#169. But human beings must suffer, and must make suffering for themselves, and beat themselves up into spiritual frenzies, and oh death and desolation, and oh night space and horror, and oh keep my dream from me. And how very splendid it is that we can do all this to ourselves and have such a splendid and really ingenious gift for inflicting suffering upon ourselves. For suffering and strain are the gauge of life, and who wishes to live like a vegetable?
But sometimes suffering measures life and ends it. And then it is not good at all. And between two people without knowing it a love may grow up, and a link may form, and no one knows or guesses. #Quote by Stevie Smith
Horror quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#170. It is the courage to make a clean breast of it in the face of every question that makes the philosopher. He must be like Sophocles' Oedipus, who, seeking enlightenment concerning his terrible fate, pursues his indefatigable inquiry even though he divines that appalling horror awaits him in the answer. But most of us carry with us the Jocasta in our hearts, who begs Oedipus, for God's sake, not to inquire further. #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Horror quotes by Marybeth Niederkorn
#171. Childish certainty that nothing could get him while under the covers wasn't much comfort, but it was a start. #Quote by Marybeth Niederkorn
Horror quotes by Hunter Shea
#172. Yeah, I get it. I'll be cool as a well digger's ass."
He jumped when the front door slammed shut, the harsh bang echoing around the trees.
Mitch shook his head. "That well digger must be working in a hot spring. #Quote by Hunter Shea
Horror quotes by Bernard Cornwell
#173. It would cause nothing but madness, Thomas thought. Men would fight for it, lie for it, cheat for it, betray for it and die for it. The Church would make money from it. It would cause nothing but evil, he thought, for it stirred horror from men's hearts, #Quote by Bernard Cornwell
Horror quotes by Steven Erikson
#174. They are a generation that has tasted blood, and where horror fades, nostalgia seeps in. In war all is simple, and there is appeal in this. Who among us is comforted by confusion, uncertainty? #Quote by Steven Erikson
Horror quotes by Ian McEwan
#175. The sound was so icy and bleak that he imagined his daughter had seen in her dreams the unavoidable future, all the sorrow and confusion to come, and he felt himself shrink in horror. But the moment passed, and soon Sebastian and Monica sank again, or they rose, for there seemed to be no physical dimensions in the space they swam or tumbled through, only sensation, only pleasure so focused, so pointed it was a reminder of pain. #Quote by Ian McEwan
Horror quotes by Rachel Caine
#176. And if you dont come back from the dorm, I'm the one who has to explain to Micheal how I let you go off and get yourself killed like a Dumbass. First rule in horror movies, Clair-Never split up! #Quote by Rachel Caine
Horror quotes by Gen Urobuchi
#177. When I try to write love, it only turns into horror. Thinking about it with a clear head, feeling such deep emotions to some other person you don't even know is truly a terrifying thingI wonder if love isn't a manifestation of madness in some way. #Quote by Gen Urobuchi
Horror quotes by Fede Alvarez
#178. Only really good comedies and really good horror movies get a verbal response out of the audience. People will scream. People will laugh. #Quote by Fede Alvarez
Horror quotes by Alan Bradley
#179. Had I been too cruel to that horror, Miss Mountjoy? Too vindictive? Wasn't she, after all, just a harmless and lonely old spinster? Would a Larry de Luce have been more understanding?
'Hell, no!' I shouted into the wind ... #Quote by Alan Bradley

Horror quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson
#184. This was the shocking thing; that the slime of the pit seemed to utter cries and voices; that the amorphous dust gesticulated and sinned; that what was dead, and had no shape, should usurp the offices of life. And this again, that that insurgent horror was knit to him closer than a wife, closer than an eye; lay caged in his flesh, where he heard it mutter and felt it struggle to be born; and at every hour of weakness, and in the confidence of slumber, prevailed against him, and deposed him out of life. #Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson
Horror quotes by Ayn Rand
#185. Every major horror of history was committed in the name of an altruistic motive. Has any act of selfishness ever equalled the carnage perpetrated by disciples of altruism. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Horror quotes by Col. Walter E. Kurtz
#186. It is impossible to describe what is necessary, to those who do not know what horror means. You must make a friend of horror. #Quote by Col. Walter E. Kurtz
Horror quotes by Susana Fortes
#187. People beleived that the most devastating part of a war are the corpses with their guts out in the open, the puddles of blood, and all that you can capture at first glance. But sometimes the horror is off to the side, in the lost look on the face of a woman who's just been raped, as she limps away alone within the ruins, trying to keep her head down. Gerda and Capa were not aware of this yet. They were too young. And that was their first conflict. They still believed war had its romantic side. #Quote by Susana Fortes
Horror quotes by Jeremy Irons
#188. I certainly play people on the edge quite a lot. I am interested in what makes people odd and what makes them different. In life I try to play the edges. I have a horror of the herd. There are many, many different sorts of people. A lot of people are fairly uninteresting. I want to play the interesting ones. The villains are always more interesting to portray. Shakespeare knew that. #Quote by Jeremy Irons
Horror quotes by Jack Kerouac
#189. What a horror it would have been if the world was real, because if the world was real, it would be immortal. #Quote by Jack Kerouac
Horror quotes by Dean Koontz
#190. Humanity is capable of any atrocity," she said. "But when you understand the extent of this cruelty, the unprecedented viciousness, the immense scale of the horror, it seems beyond the power of mere people to conceive and execute. It seems demonic. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Horror quotes by John Collier
#191. How happy I might be, if only she was less greedy, better tempered, not addicted to raking up old grudges, more affectionate, with slightly yellower hair, slimmer, and about twenty years younger! But what is the good of expecting such a woman to reform? #Quote by John Collier
Horror quotes by Kayla Krantz
#192. Your friend will pay deeply for what he's done here tonight," Chance snarled once he wiped off most of the blood. "You can tell him to run as far and as fast as he can, I'll get him. Just let him know that once this is all over, it's just gonna be you and me and a world full of corpses. #Quote by Kayla Krantz
Horror quotes by Thomas Ligotti
#193. This, then, is the ultimate, that is only, consolation: simply that someone shares some of your own feelings and has made of these a work of art which you have the insight, sensitivity, and - like it or not - peculiar set of experiences to appreciate. Amazing thing to say, the consolation of horror in art is that it actually intensifies our panic, loudens it on the sounding-board of our horror-hollowed hearts, turns terror up full blast, all the while reaching for that perfect and deafening amplitude at which we may dance to the bizarre music of our own misery. #Quote by Thomas Ligotti
Horror quotes by Bowe Bergdahl
#194. The horror that is America is disgusting. #Quote by Bowe Bergdahl
Horror quotes by Louis Ferdinand Celine
#195. You can be a virgin in horror the same as in sex. #Quote by Louis Ferdinand Celine
Horror quotes by Winona Ryder
#196. Well, yeah! Now they're considered golden oldies, which is awesome. I was watching Little Women recently, and I didn't want to get up for fear of missing something. And Heathers is like my own Rocky Horror Picture Show; I recite the lines when it's on. It may seem odd, but I think it's because they're really good movies. #Quote by Winona Ryder
Horror quotes by John Adams
#197. You go on, I presume, with your latin Exercises: and I wish to hear of your beginning upon Sallust who is one of the most polished and perfect of the Roman Historians, every Period of whom, and I had almost said every Syllable and every Letter is worth Studying.
In Company with Sallust, Cicero, Tacitus and Livy, you will learn Wisdom and Virtue. You will see them represented, with all the Charms which Language and Imagination can exhibit, and Vice and Folly painted in all their Deformity and Horror.
You will ever remember that all the End of study is to make you a good Man and a useful Citizen. - This will ever be the Sum total of the Advice of your affectionate Father,
John Adams #Quote by John Adams

Horror quotes by Seanan McGuire
#199. 'Seanan McGuire' is my real name; if I'm being silly and third-person about it, she's a frequently cranky, foul-mouthed Disney Princess on vacation in the real world, where she studies diseases, cuddles reptiles, watches lots of horror movies, and goes to as many corn fields as possible. #Quote by Seanan McGuire
Horror quotes by Derek Ailes
#200. I looked at Vicki. My beautiful Vicki. My dream. My love. My life. #Quote by Derek Ailes
