Monsters quotes by N.K. Jemisin
#1. People don' need no monster to make 'em do evil-hearted shit. All it take is a brown face, or somebody wearin' old tore-up clothes. #Quote by N.K. Jemisin
Monsters quotes by David Wong
#2. Even if someone decided that the infection rate down there was something less than one hundred percent, and if they could go to a mountaintop and shout it to the world, it wouldn't matter. Because the people want this. They want their neighbors to be monsters. It's why we lust over news stories of mothers murdering their children, and run after conspiracy theories about a government full of greedy sociopaths. If the monsters didn't come, we would have willed them into existence. #Quote by David Wong
Monsters quotes by Josh James Riebock
#3. I suppose we all hit a point when no one has to describe fear & confusion for us anymore, a point when life carves it into us. #Quote by Josh James Riebock
Monsters quotes by Dan Scanlon
#4. I started at Pixar the month 'Monsters Inc.' came out. #Quote by Dan Scanlon
Monsters quotes by Jacqueline E. Smith
#5. They'd never scared him, really. When he was younger, he hadn't known that there was anything different about them. By the time he was old enough to figure out that no one else could see them, he was also old enough to realize that being dead didn't turn people into monsters. It just meant that most of them were lonely. #Quote by Jacqueline E. Smith
Monsters quotes by Tahereh Mafi
#6. If i'm upset right now, it's becuase I've just discovered that everyone closest to me has been lying to me. Using me. Manipulating me for their own needs. My parents, are still alive, and apparently they're no better than the abusive monsters who adopted me. I have a sister being actively tortured by The Reestablishment-- and I never even knew she existed. I'm trying to come to terms with the fact that nothing is going to be the same for me, not ever again, and I have no idea who to trust or how to move forward. So yeah, right now I don't care about anything. Because I don't know what I'm fighting for anymore. And I don't know who my friends are. Right now, everyone is my enemy, including you. #Quote by Tahereh Mafi
Monsters quotes by Richelle Mead
#7. But the humans weren't what made my steps falter as I walked through grass that had turned bright green with summer's touch. It was Dimitri. Always Dimitri. Dimitri, the man I loved. Dimitri, the Strigoi I wanted to save. Dimitri, the monster I'd most likely have to kill. The love we'd shared always burned within me, no matter how often I told myself to move on, no matter how much the world did think I'd move on. He was always with me, always on my mind, always making me question myself. #Quote by Richelle Mead
Monsters quotes by Ryan Holiday
#8. Focus on the moment, not the monsters that may or may not be up ahead. #Quote by Ryan Holiday
Monsters quotes by Annie Dillard
#9. In the deeps are the violence and terror of which psychology has warned us. But if you ride these monsters deeper down, if you drop with them farther over the world's rim, you find what our sciences cannot locate or name, the substrate, the ocean or matrix or ether which buoys the rest, which gives goodness its power for good, and evil its power for evil, the unified field: our complex and inexplicable caring for each other, and for our life together here. This is given. It is not learned. #Quote by Annie Dillard
Monsters quotes by Sherman Alexie
#10. As a child, I read because books–violent and not, blasphemous and not, terrifying and not–were the most loving and trustworthy things in my life. I read widely, and loved plenty of the classics so, yes, I recognized the domestic terrors faced by Louisa May Alcott's March sisters. But I became the kid chased by werewolves, vampires, and evil clowns in Stephen King's books. I read books about monsters and monstrous things, often written with monstrous language, because they taught me how to battle the real monsters in my life.

And now I write books for teenagers because I vividly remember what it felt like to be a teen facing everyday and epic dangers. I don't write to protect them. It's far too late for that. I write to give them weapons–in the form of words and ideas-that will help them fight their monsters. I write in blood because I remember what it felt like to bleed. #Quote by Sherman Alexie
Monsters quotes by Doris Lessing
#11. The Freudians describe the conscious as a small lit area, all white, and the unconscious as a great dark marsh full of monsters. In their view, the monsters reach up, grab you by the ankles, and try to drag you down. #Quote by Doris Lessing
Monsters quotes by Ingeborg Bachmann
#12. Never was there so much magic over things as when you spoke, and never were words so powerful. You could make speech flare up, become muddled or mighty. You did everything with words and sentences, came to an understanding with them or transmuted them, gave things a new name; and objects which understand neither the straight nor the crooked words, almost took their being from your words.

Oh, nobody was ever able to play so well, you monsters! You invented all games, number games and word games, dream games and love games.

Never did anyone speak of himself like that. Almost truthfully. Almost murderously truthfully. Bent over the water, almost abandoned. The world is already dark and I cannot put on the necklace of shells. There will be no clearing. You different from all the others. I am under water. Am under water.

And now someone is walking up above and hates water and hates green and does not understand, will never understand. As I have never understood.

Almost mute,
almost still
the call.

Come. Just once.
Come. #Quote by Ingeborg Bachmann
Monsters quotes by Alan Gratz
#13. I had managed to scare even the monsters, and when you can scare monsters, you can be sure you've become one yourself. #Quote by Alan Gratz
Monsters quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#14. And though St. John saw many strange monsters in his vision, he saw no creature so wild as one of his own commentators. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Monsters quotes by Joanna Russ
#15. After a while you tame your interior monsters, it's only natural. I don't mean that it ever stops; but it stops mattering. #Quote by Joanna Russ
Monsters quotes by Ethan Winters
#16. There's monsters in every closet. You don't get rid of monsters by shining a fucking flashlight on them, though. You know how you deal with monsters? It's simple. I'm going to fucking tell you exactly how right now. You become a bigger monster. #Quote by Ethan Winters
Monsters quotes by Paula Stokes
#17. I think about the way Baz teased me earlier, how he wanted to know what it felt like to have someone who would do anything for me. Maybe it sounds comforting to know there is a person out there who would risk his life to protect you - a person who would back off when you asked and then come to you when you changed your mind. Especially when that person is as kind and decent as Jesse. The truth is, it's terrifying. It's just one more opportunity for me to be a monster. #Quote by Paula Stokes
Monsters quotes by Josh James Riebock
#18. Knowledge and belief are sometimes worlds apart. #Quote by Josh James Riebock
Monsters quotes by Fredrik Backman
#19. To teach her that not all monsters are monsters in the beginning, and not all monsters look like monsters. Some carry their monstrosity inside. #Quote by Fredrik Backman
Monsters quotes by Virginia Woolf
#20. But Orlando was a woman - Lord Palmerston had just proved it. And when we are writing the life of a woman, we may, it is agreed, waive our demand for action, and substitute love instead. Love, the poet has said, is woman's whole existence. And if we look for a moment at Orlando writing at her table, we must admit that never was there a woman more fitted for that calling. Surely, since she is a woman, and a beautiful woman, and a woman in the prime of life, she will soon give over this pretence of writing and thinking and begin at least to think of a gamekeeper (and as long as she thinks of a man, nobody objects to a woman thinking). And then she will write him a little note (and as long as she writes little notes nobody objects to a woman writing either) and make an assignation for Sunday dusk and Sunday dusk will come; and the gamekeeper will whistle under the window - all of which is, of course, the very stuff of life and the only possible subject for fiction. Surely Orlando must have done one of these things? Alas, - a thousand times, alas, Orlando did none of them. Must it then be admitted that Orlando was one of those monsters of iniquity who do not love? She was kind to dogs, faithful to friends, generosity itself to a dozen starving poets, had a passion for poetry. But love - as the male novelists define it - and who, after all, speak with greater authority? - has nothing whatever to do with kindness, fidelity, generosity, or poetry. Love is slipping off one' #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Monsters quotes by Anne Serling
#21. On a deeper level, the film [Seven Days in May] displays several themes that are important to my father throughout his career. Prime among these is not succumbing to fear born of ignorance. In the nuclear age, he seems to be telling us, we can't throw up our hands in helplessness over the enormity of the problem. With the stakes as dire as they are, we must all work positively to change things for the better. I think that is why he believes so firmly in the idea of the United Nations. As in 'Twilight Zone's' "The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street", my dad is warning us that the greatest threat we face is if a potential enemy uses our fears to get us to start destroying ourselves. #Quote by Anne Serling
Monsters quotes by Kerri Maniscalco
#22. Monsters were in the eye of the beholder. And no one wanted to discover their hero was the true villain of the story. #Quote by Kerri Maniscalco
Monsters quotes by Charles Caleb Colton
#23. The mob is a monster, with the hands of Briareus, but the head of Polyphemus,
strong to execute, but blind to perceive. #Quote by Charles Caleb Colton
Monsters quotes by Holly Lisle
#24. I had come to discover that "safe" was an illusion, a pretense that adults wrapped around their children- and sometimes themselves- to make the world seem comfortable. I had discovered that under that thin cover of let's-pretend, monsters and nightmares lay, and that not all of them came from places like the moonroads or the nightling cities. Some of the monsters were people we knew. People we thought we could trust. #Quote by Holly Lisle
Monsters quotes by Cassandra Clare
#25. A girl clutched Magnus's sleeve and gazed up at him, her false lashes dusted with silver glitter. "Don't go in," she whispered. "There's a monster in there."
I am a monster, Magnus thought. And monsters are his specialty.
He didn't say it. Instead he said, "I don't believe you," and walked in. He meant it, too: the
Shadowhunters, even Alec, might believe Magnus was a monster, but Magnus didn't believe it himself. He'd taught himself not to believe it even though his mother, the man he'd called his father, and a thousand others had told him it was true.
Magnus would not believe the girl in there was a monster either, no matter what she might look like to mundanes and Nephilim. She had a soul, and that meant she could be saved. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Monsters quotes by Eden Connor
#26. Nothing is as American as these big block monsters made of Detroit pig iron. In its day, this car represented everything that was right about this country. Damn near every piece of it was produced here, from the steel in the frame, to the switches behind the dash, to the scoop popping through the hood, to the real chrome on the fender. They're pure America; arrogant, brash, and defiant as hell. You look at one and it pulls on you. Every drop of rebellion in your soul rises to the top. #Quote by Eden Connor
Monsters quotes by Sarah Beth Durst
#27. What do you call a group of monsters?"

"Awesome. #Quote by Sarah Beth Durst
Monsters quotes by Cinda Williams Chima
#28. I learned a long time ago that it's not our fault if our parents are monsters. We can't take responsibility for that, or we're twice damaged. All we can do is try to go forward in a different way. #Quote by Cinda Williams Chima
Monsters quotes by Ricky Hatton
#29. Dad's tiny - his passport picture is a full-length shot. He looks like he just hopped off a key ring. Mum is a different matter, she's a bit of a handful to say the least. I love her more than anyone on this Earth. But she's a monster. #Quote by Ricky Hatton
Monsters quotes by Elle Katharine White
#30. I've been in many battles in my lifetime. I've slain monsters by the hundreds and won more victories than I can count, but against this there's no defense. From the moment we met I tried fighting it - gods, I've tried. Nothing works. I thought I'd be safe at the other end of the country, but the minute I heard you were coming to Edan Rose I flew here as fast as Akarra would take me. I'm a Rider and you're a nakla," Daired said. "There's nothing we have in common. There's nothing we should have in common. Your birth, your bloodline, all of it - it's beneath me. I know all of that, and it hasn't changed a thing. I've lost, Aliza. You've defeated me. #Quote by Elle Katharine White
Monsters quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#31. And the sea was very stormy. Monsters churned in the ley line beneath them. A forest grew through the hands and eyes Adam had bargained away to Cabeswater. And Ganseywas supposed to die before April. That was the troubled ocean – Glendower was the island. To wake him was to get a favour, and that favour would be to save Gansey's life. This enchanted country needed an enchanted king. #Quote by Maggie Stiefvater
Monsters quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#32. Our real discoveries come from chaos, from going to the place that looks wrong and stupid and foolish. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Monsters quotes by Ted Naifeh
#33. I love gothic monsters, but I like to root them more firmly in the traditional folklore from which they sprang. Or at least, I like to evoke the feeling of those folk stories. #Quote by Ted Naifeh
Monsters quotes by David Chuka
#34. Life would be perfect if monster would stop farting. #Quote by David Chuka
Monsters quotes by Chloe Thurlow
#35. There was a monster in me that had to be fed by success. There is a monster in us all that has to be fed by something. #Quote by Chloe Thurlow
Monsters quotes by Robert Hugh Benson
#36. It was incredible, she told herself, that this ravening monster, dripping blood from claws and teeth, that had arisen roaring in the night, could be the Humanity that had become her God. She had thought revenge and cruelty and slaughter to be the brood of Christian superstition, dead and buried under the new-born angel of light, and now it seemed that the monsters yet stirred and lived. #Quote by Robert Hugh Benson
Monsters quotes by Ransom Riggs
#37. I couldn't stop myself, so I thought about all the bad things and I fed it and fed it until I was crying so hard I had to gasp for breath between sobs. I thought about how my great-grandparents had starved to death. I thought about their wasted bodies being fed to incinerators because people they didn't know hated them. I thought about how the children who lived in this house had been burned up and blown apart because a pilot who didn't care pushed a button. I thought about how my grandfather's family had been taken from him, and how because of that my dad grew up feeling like he didn't have a dad, and now I had acute stress and nightmares and was sitting alone in a falling-down house and crying hot, stupid tears all over my shirt. All because of a seventy-year-old hurt that had somehow been passed down to me like some poisonous heirloom, and monsters I couldn't fight because they were all dead, beyond killing or punishing or any kind of reckoning. At least my grandfather had been able to join the army and go fight them. What could I do? #Quote by Ransom Riggs
Monsters quotes by Jim Butcher
#38. I choose my battles, Dresden. Not you." She looked up at me calmly. "Let me put this in terms that will get through your skull: My friend is going to save a child from monsters. I'm going with him. That's what friends do, Harry. #Quote by Jim Butcher
Monsters quotes by Cassandra Clare
#39. It's like Dungeons and Dragons, but real."
Jace was looking at Simon as if he were some bizarre species of insect. "It's like what?"
"It's a game," Clary explained. She felt vaguely embarrassed. "People pretend to be wizards and elves, and they kill monsters and stuff."
Jace looked stupefied.
Simon grinned. "you've never hear of Dungeon and Dragons?"
"I've heard of dungeons," Jace said. "Also dragons. Although they're mostly extinct."
Simon looked disappointed. "You've never killed a dragon?"
"He's probably never met a six-foot-tall hot elf-woman in a fur bikini, either," Clary said irritably. "Lay off, Simon."
"Real elves are about eight inches tall," Jace pointed out. "Also, they bite. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Monsters quotes by Guillermo Del Toro
#40. Well, the first thing is that I love monsters, I identify with monsters. #Quote by Guillermo Del Toro
Monsters quotes by Kitty Thomas
#41. Monsters aren't supposed to be beautiful. #Quote by Kitty Thomas
Monsters quotes by Simon R. Green
#42. I ignored him, concentrating on Lilith. "According to the stories, after you were expelled from Eden you went down into Hell, where you coupled with demons and gave birth to all the monsters that have plagued the world."
"I was young," said Lilith. "You know how it is. We all do things we later regret, when we're being rebellious teenagers. #Quote by Simon R. Green
Monsters quotes by Hilary Mantel
#43. Account books form a narrative as engaging as any tale of sea monsters or cannibals. #Quote by Hilary Mantel
Monsters quotes by Charles Lee
#44. People think "monsters" are born without origin. But it is the monsters that have the greatest stories to tell ... #Quote by Charles Lee
Monsters quotes by Stephen T. Asma
#45. Wherever we find monsters, there, too, we also find heroes. #Quote by Stephen T. Asma
Monsters quotes by Kendare Blake
#46. As she watches, a woman with dark red hair throws her head back. For a moment her molars- as well as her throat, as if her jaw has come unhinged- are visible. In Katharine's ears polite chatter turns to wails, and the ballroom is filled with glittering monsters. #Quote by Kendare Blake
Monsters quotes by Kameron Hurley
#47. Nyx had killed a lot of people. She'd let even more die through neglect. Rhys was just one more. I'm the same person, aren't I? she thought. She had burned herself up, only to come out the other side exactly the same.

Taite's signal would get out, Nyx knew. It would be soon enough to save *her*.

But it would not be soon enough for Rhys.

Nyx hardened her jaw. Her hands and feet were still tied. They'd stripped her of her most obvious weapons. She could just wait this out.

She saw Rhys register that. But there was no shock. Just resignation. He knew her for what she was.

Butcher. Monster.

The same old monster. #Quote by Kameron Hurley
Monsters quotes by Rasmenia Massoud
#48. Lucius didn't believe in werewolves. He said that people were too horrible for any other monsters to exist, which he thought was a shame. #Quote by Rasmenia Massoud
Monsters quotes by Tess Gerritsen
#49. The hunting of monsters is not for the faint of heart. Nor is it for those who feel bound by such trivial doctrines as law or national borders. #Quote by Tess Gerritsen
Monsters quotes by Avijeet Das
#50. We can't let the next generation grow up without heroes. Some of us have to fight on! #Quote by Avijeet Das
Monsters quotes by Charles De Lint
#51. The real difference is that with fantasy - and by that I mean fantasy which can simultaneously tap into a cosmopolitan commonality at the same time as it springs from an individual and unique perspective. In this sort of fantasy, a mythic resonance lingers on - an harmonious vibration that builds in potency the longer one considers it, rather than fading away when the final page is read and the book is put away. Characters discovered in such writing are pulled from our own inner landscapes... and then set out upon the stories' various stages so that as we learn to understand them a little better, both the monsters and the angels, we come to understand ourselves a little better as well. #Quote by Charles De Lint
Monsters quotes by H.G.Wells
#52. Their bodies lay flatly on the rocks, and their eyes regarded him with evil interest: but it does not appear that Mr. Fison was afraid, or that he realized that he was in any danger. Possibly his confidence is to be ascribed to the limpness of their attitudes. But he was horrified, of course, and intensely excited and indignant at such revolting creatures preying upon human flesh. He thought they had chanced upon a drowned body. He shouted to them, with the idea of driving them off, and, finding they did not budge, cast about him, picked up a big rounded lump of rock, and flung it at one.
And then, slowly uncoiling their tentacles, they all began moving towards him - creeping at first deliberately, and making a soft purring sound to each other. #Quote by H.G.Wells
Monsters quotes by Jamie Dornan
#53. I'm not afraid to play the role of Christian Grey. Because I'm not like him. But I perfectly understand him. I never thought that he was a monster. He is simply woven from desires. As every one of us. #Quote by Jamie Dornan
Monsters quotes by Reni Eddo-Lodge
#54. Discussing racism is not the same thing as discussing 'black identity'. Discussing racism is about discussing white identity. It's about white anxiety. It's about asking why whiteness has this reflexive need to define itself against immigrant bogey monsters in order to feel comfortable, safe and secure. Why am I saying one thing, and white people are hearing something completely different? #Quote by Reni Eddo-Lodge
Monsters quotes by Jung Chang
#55. I wanted to look calm, and to let them know that they could not demoralize us. I had no fear or sense of humiliation, only contempt for them. What had turned people into monsters? What #Quote by Jung Chang
Monsters quotes by Alan Moore
#56. Rather than being able to have a healthy relationship with our own sexual imagination, we're driven into some dark corners by shame and embarrassment and guilt, and those dark corners breed all sorts of monsters. #Quote by Alan Moore
Monsters quotes by Lee Daniels
#57. My work is therapeutic: 'Monster's Ball,' 'Woodsman' and 'Shadowboxer,' because I don't go to therapy, and I sort of live life through my films. #Quote by Lee Daniels
Monsters quotes by E.K. Johnston
#58. If you are clever and you are good, the monster will not have you.
You should not believe everything you hear.
Good men fall to monsters everyday. Clever men are tricked by their own pride or by pretty words. #Quote by E.K. Johnston
Monsters quotes by S.C. Parris
#59. Tears fled her eyes as she ran, and they slid into her ears, but she did not wipe them, no, she pressed forward through the many trees, keeping her eyes upon the large shadow that flew forward, almost guiding her out of the woods, but that was preposterous – so why am I following it?
What do you mean why are you following it? It's the only thing that's putting distance between you and those...monsters back there!
But what about Lord Delacroix?
What the devil about him?
He tried to keep you safe – he truly did attempt to save you -
And what did that get him? Crushed by a damned Lycan – again!
But I should still go back to save him....
I should keep moving!
But he's saved my life – I can't let him die!
Technically, he's already dead, Alexi....
Goddamn it all!
Run – run now – come back when you're safe!
Come back? With who?!
Help, of course!
Where on Earth am I going to find help?! #Quote by S.C. Parris
Monsters quotes by Julie Kagawa
#60. From here on," Kanin said, "you will have to decide what kind of demon you will be. Not all meals will come to you so easily, ignorant and seeking to do you harm. What will you do if your prey invites you inside, offers you a place at the table? What will you do if they flee, or cower down, begging you not to hurt them? How you stalk your prey is something you must come to terms with, or you will quickly drive yourself mad. And once you cross that threshold, there is no coming back from it. #Quote by Julie Kagawa
Monsters quotes by Stephen L. Carter
#61. But that is the way of the place: down our many twisting corridors, one encounters story after story, some heroic, some villainous, some true, some false, some funny, some tragic, and all of them combining to form the mystical, undefinable entity we call the school . Not exactly the building, not exactly the faculty or the students or the alumni more than all those things but also less, a paradox, an order, a mystery, a monster, an utter joy. #Quote by Stephen L. Carter
Monsters quotes by Joe Manganiello
#62. I was kind of a dark kid. I loved Halloween, and I loved vampires and the black and white old monster movies. #Quote by Joe Manganiello
Monsters quotes by Tobe Hooper
#63. I wanted to make a human monster. His name is Coffin Baby. The idea is based on a group of people from Pasadena whose names I can't mention. His mother died and during the funeral, this baby came out of her in the coffin. #Quote by Tobe Hooper
Monsters quotes by Pedro Calderon De La Barca
#64. For, as on the coloured canvas
Subtle pencils softly blend
Dark and light in such proportions
That the dim perspectives end-
Now perhaps like famous cities,
Now like caves or misty capes,
For remoteness ever formeth
Monstrous or unreal shapes...
So it was, while I alone,
Saw their bulk and vast proportions
But their form remained unknown.
First they seemed to us uplifting
High in heaven their pointed towers,
Clouds that to the sea descended,
To conceive in sapphire showers
What they would bring forth in crystal.
And this fancy seemed more true,
As from their untold abundance
They, methought, could drink the blue
Drop by drop. Again sea monsters
Seemed to us the wandering droves,
Which, to from the train of Neptune,
Issued from their green alcoves.
For the sails, when lightly shaken,
Fanned by zephyrs as by slaves,
Seemed to us like outspread pinions
Fluttering o'er the darkened waves;
Then the mass, approaching nearer,
Seemed a mighty Babylon,
With its hanging gardens pictures
By the streamers fluttering down.
But at last our certain vision
Undeceived, becoming true,
Showed it was a great armada
For I saw the prows cut through
Foam.... #Quote by Pedro Calderon De La Barca
Monsters quotes by Peter Jackson
#65. I used to send away for eight-minute Super 8 movies of various Ray Harryhausen scenes advertised on the back of 'Famous Monsters of Filmland' magazine. #Quote by Peter Jackson
Monsters quotes by Anonymous
#66. As humanity becomes monstrous, monsters become nicer. #Quote by Anonymous
Monsters quotes by Alfred De Musset
#67. You're like a lighthouse shining beside the sea of humanity, motionless: all you can see is your own reflection in the water. You're alone, so you think it's a vast, magnificent panorama. You haven't sounded the depths. You simply believe in the beauty of God's creation. But I have spent all this time in the water, diving deep into the howling ocean of life, deeper than anyone. While you were admiring the surface, I saw the shipwrecks, the drowned bodies, the monsters of the deep #Quote by Alfred De Musset
Monsters quotes by Steven Sherrill
#68. The architecture of the Minotaur's heart is ancient. Rough hewn and many chambered, his heart is a plodding laborious thing, built for churning through the millennia. But the blood it pumps - the blood it has pumped for five thousand years, the blood it will pump for the rest of his life - is nearly human blood. It carries with it, through his monster's veins, the weighty, necessary, terrible stuff of human existence: fear, wonder, hope, wickedness, love. But in the Minotaur's world it is far easier to kill and devour seven virgins year after year, their rattling bones rising at his feet like a sea of cracked ice, than to accept tenderness and return it. #Quote by Steven Sherrill
Monsters quotes by Laini Taylor
#69. I kept thinking about that drawing in the war council, and our part in all of this. We cheat the bowl. We keep filling it back up, and the monsters keep stabbing their giant forks in, and because of us, there's always more for them to eat. We never lose but we never win, either. We just keep on dying. Is that what we do? #Quote by Laini Taylor
Monsters quotes by Katelin LaMontagne
#70. She snores, she talks too god damn much, and she tries to cuddle." John visibly shivers at that, so I nod and continue to state my grievances. "She's always in my room, even when I've told her to stay the fuck out on multiple occasions. If she's not in my room, she's dogging my every step, or in my freaking face and asking so many fucking questions. 'Do we have enough food, Jared? What about ammo? Are you sure it's safe? What will happen if the monsters got in?' I just want to go to fucking sleep, and she wants pillow talk after some subpar post coition. #Quote by Katelin LaMontagne
Monsters quotes by Kerri Maniscalco
#71. Monsters could wear the smiles of friends while secreting away the rotten soul of the Devil in the darkest crevices of themselves. #Quote by Kerri Maniscalco
Monsters quotes by Fredrik Backman
#72. Not all monsters look like monsters. There are some that carry their monstrosity inside. #Quote by Fredrik Backman
Monsters quotes by Kerri Maniscalco
#73. Monsters were supposed to be scary and ugly. They weren't supposed to hide behind friendly smiles and well-trimmed hair. Goodness, twisted as it might be, was not meant to be locked away in an icy heart and anxious exterior. #Quote by Kerri Maniscalco
Monsters quotes by Guillermo Cabrera Infante
#74. If the sleep of reason produces monsters, what does the sleep of unreason produce? #Quote by Guillermo Cabrera Infante
Monsters quotes by Nicole Rae
#75. Emily squared her shoulders and said simply, "I'm fine, I'm not really loving your social skills though. Don't you know this is no way to start a conversation?" Emily's mouth clamped shut at the expression on the monsters face. #Quote by Nicole Rae
Monsters quotes by Carlos Malvar
#76. ... what makes us monsters is our need to be saints #Quote by Carlos Malvar
Monsters quotes by Lauro Martines
#77. It follows that the one thing we should not do to the men and women of past time, and particularly if they ghost through to us as larger than life, is to take them out of their historical contexts. To do so is to run the risk of turning them into monsters, whom we can denounce for our (frequently political) motives - an insidious game, because we are condemning in their make-up that which is likely to belong to a whole social world, the world that helped to fashion them and that is deviously reflected or distorted in them. Censure of this sort is the work of petty moralists and propagandists, not historians (p. 5). #Quote by Lauro Martines
Monsters quotes by Claudine Carmel
#78. Mondays taste like split-pea soup,

Tuesdays taste like gobbledygook,

Wednesdays taste like licorice,

Thursdays taste like deep-fried fish,

Fridays taste like the color red,

Saturdays taste like gingerbread,

Sundays taste like chicken breast,

But birthdays! Birthdays taste the best!

Birthdays taste like chocolate cake,

Balloons, presents, and sirloin steak. #Quote by Claudine Carmel
Monsters quotes by Karen Lynch
#79. I'd thought to protect Nate from monsters, but I forgot they came in human form, too. #Quote by Karen Lynch
Monsters quotes by Jane Bowles
#80. Well," said Miss Goering, "perhaps my maneuvers do seem a little strange, but I have thought for a long time now that often, so very often, heroes who believe themselves to be monsters because they are so far removed from other men turn around much later and see really monstrous acts being committed in the name of something mediocre. #Quote by Jane Bowles
Monsters quotes by Hajime Isayama
#81. You can't change anything unless you can discard part of yourself too. To surpass monsters, you must be willing to abandon your humanity

Monsters quotes by Foz Meadows
#82. My island was not wild, compared to this.
There are such monsters in a palace. #Quote by Foz Meadows

#84. I am the blood of the dragon, she thought. If they are monsters, so am I. #Quote by George R R Martin
Monsters quotes by Charles Baudelaire
#85. What strange phenomena we find in a great city, all we need do is stroll about with our eyes open. Life swarms with innocent monsters. #Quote by Charles Baudelaire
Monsters quotes by Susan Stryker
#86. Not only did the angry villagers hound their monsters to the edge of town, they reproached her for being vulnerable to the torches. #Quote by Susan Stryker
Monsters quotes by Teju Cole
#87. I adore imaginary monsters, but I am terrified of real ones. #Quote by Teju Cole
Monsters quotes by Dmitry Glukhovsky
#88. But if they have a flashlight, it means they're human and not some kind of monsters from the surface,' objected Artyom.
"I don't know what's worse," said Melnik, cutting off Artyom. #Quote by Dmitry Glukhovsky
Monsters quotes by Rick Riordan
#89. I felt a bit silly giving this advice to a girl who regularly fought monsters with golden swords, but I had promised Bill Nye the Science Guy I would always promote safe laboratory practices. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Monsters quotes by Dean Koontz
#90. In nightmares, we can't look into our own eyes except by indirection, perhaps because we fear discovering that therein lie the worst monsters plaguing us. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Monsters quotes by Meg Cabot
#91. Her name is Hope?" John asked, the corners of his mouth beginning to tug upwards.
"No." I bristled, thinking he was making fun of me. Then I realized I'd been caught. "Well, all right…so what if it is? I'm not going to name her after some depressing aspect of the Underworld like you do all your pets. I looked up the name Alastor. That was the name of one of the death horses that drew Hades's chariot. And Typhon?" I glanced at the dog, cavorting in and out of the waves, seemingly oblivious of the cold. "I can only imagine, but I'm sure it means something equally unpleasant."
"Typhon was the father of all monsters," John said. He'd given up trying to suppress his grin. "The deadliest of all the creatures in Greek mythology."
"Nice," I said sarcastically. "Well, I prefer to name my pets something that reminds me there's-"
"Hope?" His grin broadened.
"Very funny." True, I'd admitted to him that I was inexperienced. But I didn't have to prove it by acting like I was twelve. #Quote by Meg Cabot
Monsters quotes by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
#92. I wasn't built for running away from monsters. I wanted desperately to run toward them
track them down, kill them. Luckily, I was used to restraining myself, used to acting human even when I wasn't, and the human part of my brain reminded me that right now, preternatural beasties weren't exactly my primary concern. Someone had made a strong attempt at killing me this morning ... #Quote by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Monsters quotes by Michael Madsen
#93. My career has been very strange. My career is like a heart monitor. I get involved in a good project now and then to keep things going. And then I make things that I work on that I hope are going to be good so I can make a living and keep a roof over the heads of those little monsters I have in my house. #Quote by Michael Madsen
Monsters quotes by Kristy Cunning
#94. Maybe monsters should just use Facebook instead of bullying people into weird, suspicious friendships that don't sound optional

Monsters quotes by Cassandra Rose Clarke
#95. You know, that pissed me off. We'd traveled half around the world to get to him, and there were monsters chasing us and Naji's curse was impossible to break, and here he was cracking jokes about our professions. #Quote by Cassandra Rose Clarke
Monsters quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#96. If you cannot or will not imagine the results of your actions, there's no way you can act morally or responsibly. Little kids can't do it; babies are morally monsters - completely greedy. Their imagination has to be trained into foresight and empathy. [It's the writer's] pleasant duty is to ply the reader's imagination with the best and purest nourishment that it can absorb. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Monsters quotes by Lady Gaga
#97. I had this dream, and I really wanted to be a star. And I was almost a monster in the way that I was really fearless with my ambitions. #Quote by Lady Gaga
Monsters quotes by Jonathan Maberry
#98. His specialty was interrogation. Imagine it, gentlemen. Being strapped to a table so that you are entirely at the mercy of a monster such as this. A person who delights in your pain. A person to whom your screams are more delicious than a lover's whisper. A creature who knows how to keep you alive while he skillfully and meticulously deconstructs those things that define you as human? #Quote by Jonathan Maberry
Monsters quotes by Michael Selden
#99. But just being whatever it is that I am . . . I don't think that makes me a monster. Believe me, I know. ere are plenty of real monsters walking around out there in the world. ey look respectable, but can't hide who they are from me. Real monsters hurt people for pleasure, or for no reason at all - they're just not as well armed as I am. #Quote by Michael Selden
Monsters quotes by Patrick Ness
#100. THERE IT IS,' my mother says, and what she means is that the dot we've been nearing for weeks, the one that's been growing into a larger dot with two smaller dots circling it, has now become even larger than that, growing from a dot to a disc, shining back the light from its sun, until you can see the blue of its oceans, the green of its forests, the white of its polar caps, a circle of colour against the black beyond. #Quote by Patrick Ness
Monsters quotes by Richard Preston
#101. The Ebola war wasn't won with modern medicine. It was a medieval war, and it went down as a brutal engagement between ordinary people and a life form that was trying to use the human body as a means of survival through deep time. In order to win this war against an inhuman enemy, people had to make themselves inhuman. They had to suppress their deepest feelings and instincts, tear down the bonds of love and feeling, isolate themselves from or isolate those they loved the most. Human beings had to become like monsters, in order to save their human selves. #Quote by Richard Preston
Monsters quotes by His Holiness Younus AlGohar

Monsters quotes by Liian Varus
#103. 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
Monsters quotes by Leonard Richardson
#104. They wanted us to change," said Tetsuo. "They came to our planet and they wouldn't shut up about fluid overlays and unhierarchical forms of social organization. We felt like we had to listen to them, because they were so powerful. But secretly we thought of them as monsters from space. And now here we are at your planet, and we are the monsters from space." "Why'd you come here? Why even bother?" "Don't you want to be a monster from space, too? #Quote by Leonard Richardson
Monsters quotes by Rick Riordan
#105. I slashed a wide arc with Riptide and vaporized the entire front row of monsters.
Back off!" I yelled at the rest, trying to sound fierce. Behind them stood their instructor - a six-foot-tall telekhine with Doberman fangs snarling at me. I did my best to stare him down.
New lesson, class," I announced. "Most monsters will vaporize when sliced with a celestial bronze sword. This change is perfectly normal, and will happen to you right now if you don't BACK OFF! #Quote by Rick Riordan
Monsters quotes by Richard Kadrey
#106. *For eleven years, I've been worked over and abused in ways you can't imagine by things you don't want to know about. I've killed every kind of vile, black-souled, dead-eyed nightmare that ever made you piss your pjs and cry for mommy in the middle of the night. I kill monsters and, if I wanted, I could say a word and burn you to powder from the inside out. I can tear any human you ever met to rages with my bare hands. Give me one good reason why I could possibly need you?
*She looks straight at me, not blinking. No fear in her eyes.
*Because you might be the Tasmanian Devil and the Angel of Death all rolled into one, but you don't even know how to get a phone.
*I hate to admit it, but she has a point. #Quote by Richard Kadrey

Monsters quotes by L.J.Smith
#108. In the meantime, how about us doing some more sister things together?"
Alys snorted. "Like what?"
Oh, I don't know. Slay a few monsters, outwit a few magicians, drain a few Chaotic Zones, negotiate a few treaties ... "
And after lunch?"
Janie returned the wry grin sweetly. "I'll let you know."
The hero and the sorceress walked back up the path arm in arm. #Quote by L.J.Smith
Monsters quotes by Steve Lyons
#109. There are no monsters, Doctor,' she spluttered.
Yeah, There are,' he said. 'Some of them are just better at hiding than others. And then there are the ones we wouldn't know if we saw them. #Quote by Steve Lyons
Monsters quotes by Alice Hoffman
#110. Franny entwined her legs with his. She understood why ancient monsters were often made of two creatures, with two hearts and minds. There was strength in such a combination of opposites. #Quote by Alice Hoffman
Monsters quotes by Rick Riordan
#111. In the back corner, a stairwell led down. It was blocked by a row of iron bars like a prison door. Percy wondered what was down there - monsters? Treasure? Amnesiac demigods who had gotten on Reyna's bad side? #Quote by Rick Riordan
Monsters quotes by Laura Mullen
#112. In Frankenstein there is a transfer first of life into death (in the creation and animation of the monster), and then of death into life, as the monster takes his revenge on the father who gave him life but withheld recognition. #Quote by Laura Mullen
Monsters quotes by Francesca Zappia
#113. Broken people don't hide from their monsters. Broken people let themselves be eaten. #Quote by Francesca Zappia
Monsters quotes by Kaylin McFarren, Soul Seeker
#114. I didn't know until that night that the world is full of monsters. Monsters with dark souls and claws, waiting for the chance to tear you apart. #Quote by Kaylin McFarren, Soul Seeker
Monsters quotes by Erin Morgenstern
#115. Stories have changed, my dear boy," the man in the grey suit says, his voice almost imperceptibly sad. "There are no more battles between good and evil, no monsters to slay, no maidens in need of rescue. Most maidens are perfectly capable of rescuing themselves in my experience, at least the ones worth something, in any case. There are no longer simple tales with quests and beasts and happy endings. The quests lack clarity of goal or path. The beasts take different forms and are difficult to recognize for what they are. And there are never really endings, happy or otherwise. Things keep overlapping and blur, your story is part of your sister's story is part of many other stories, and there in no telling where any of them may lead. Good and evil are a great deal more complex than a princess and a dragon, or a wolf and a scarlet-clad little girl. And is not the dragon the hero of his own story? Is not the wolf simply acting as a wolf should act? Though perhaps it is a singular wolf who goes to such lengths as to dress as a grandmother to toy with its prey. #Quote by Erin Morgenstern
Monsters quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#116. Untouchability is a many-headed monster and forms, some of them so subtle as not to be easily detected. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Monsters quotes by Andrew Pyper
#117. Monsters just outside our peripheral vision are scarier to contemplate than monsters miles away or in someplace only a fool would set foot in. #Quote by Andrew Pyper
Monsters quotes by Lewis Spence
#118. As Mr. R. U. Sayee has well said: 'It should be clear a priori that fairy lore must have developed as a result of modifications and accretions received in different countries and at many periods, though we must not overlook the part played by tradition in providing a mould that to some extent determines the nature of later additions.' It must also be self-evident that a great deal of confusion has been caused by the assumption that some spirit-types were fairies which in a more definite sense are certainly not of elfin provenance. In some epochs, indeed, Faerie appears to have been regarded as a species of limbo to which all 'pagan' spirits - to say nothing of defeated gods, monsters, and demons - could be banished, along with the personnel of Olympus and the rout of witchcraft. Such types, however, are usually fairly easy of detection. #Quote by Lewis Spence
Monsters quotes by Shams Tabrizi
#119. The whole universe is sum up in the Human Being. Devil is not a monster waiting to trap us, He is a voice inside. Look for Your Devil in Yourself, not in the Others. Don't forget that the one who knows his Devil, knows his God. #Quote by Shams Tabrizi
Monsters quotes by Mel Odom
#120. He had fought wizards (though not because he wished to), battled goblinkin (only because running hadn't been an option at the time), and faced incredible monsters (drat the luck he sometimes had when he thought about it). #Quote by Mel Odom

Monsters quotes by Jennifer Donnelly
#125. Serafina, Ava, Ling, and Becca swam inside. Neela followed them, but at the very last second, shield. "I can't," she said. "Once I go in, there's no way out again. This is real. You're real. All this time, a part of me was hoping you were only a dream."

The witch cocked her head. "Only a dream?" she said mockingly. "Long ago, a great mage dreamed of stealing the gods' powers. Abbadon was born of that dream. Atlantis died because of it. Now, because of a new dreamer, all the waters of the world may fall. There is nothing more real than a dream." She nodded at the waters behind Neela. Silt was rising in the distance, a great deal of it. "The merman Traho knows this. He's coming. If you do not believe me, perhaps he can convince you. #Quote by Jennifer Donnelly
Monsters quotes by Charles Darwin
#126. We stopped looking for monsters under our bed when we realized that they were inside us. #Quote by Charles Darwin
Monsters quotes by Jennifer L. Armentrout
#127. When I was a little girl, I used to hide in my closet. The space was dust-covered and dark, and it smelled like mothballs. But it was my sanctuary from the monsters outside. When I got older and I would have to hide, I used to fantasize that I lived in a house where the closets trapped all the monsters and where I would be safe in my bed. That I lived in a house with parents I could look up to and admire, and one day they would become the subjects of a speech I wrote about how they changed my life for the better. I didn't live in that kind of house. But the monsters I hid from shaped who I've become by teaching me that kindness and love are things that should be given freely. They taught me who I never want to be. That's why they're important to me today. #Quote by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Monsters quotes by Ryan David Jahn
#128. He looks at Mr. Vacanti and the man looks back at him with somehow gentle eyes. It surprises David to see the man has gentle eyes. It surprises him, even at thirty-seven, to discover that monsters can have gentle eyes. Something is terribly wrong with a world where monsters are allowed to have gentle eyes. #Quote by Ryan David Jahn
Monsters quotes by Anne Enright

Monsters quotes by C.L. Wilson
#130. Hiding from the monsters only made them stronger. #Quote by C.L. Wilson
Monsters quotes by Chris Mars
#131. Sometimes I will portray the more normal-looking people as the monsters and then the more distorted - "uniquely formed" is the word I like to use, rather than monstrous - as the sympathetic characters in the painting. It's interesting because some people will get it right away, but a common reaction is to be a little off-put by it. And that is the whole idea. If it grabs somebody in a negative way, that's my intention. #Quote by Chris Mars
Monsters quotes by Patrick Ness
#132. You went up a girl and came down a woman. #Quote by Patrick Ness
Monsters quotes by Francois Cavanna
#133. Nothing is sacred. Not even your own mother, not the Jewish martyrs, not even people starving of hunger. Laugh at everything, ferociously, bitterly, to exorcise the old monsters. #Quote by Francois Cavanna
Monsters quotes by Virginia Satir
#134. Adolescents are not monsters. They are just people trying to learn how to make it among the adults in the world, who are probably not so sure themselves. #Quote by Virginia Satir
Monsters quotes by Susan Ee
#135. We're at war.
On the verge of an apocalypse filled with monsters and torture in a nightmare world.
And I'm standing here, a moonstruck teenager pining for an enemy soldier. What am I, crazy?
This time, I'm the first to turn away. #Quote by Susan Ee

#138. What was a person but someone who turned monstrous, anyway? What was a person, in Moss's experience, but a kind of demon. #Quote by Jeff VanderMeer

Monsters quotes by Stephenie Meyer
#141. I'd had more than my fair share of near-death experiences; it wasn't something
you ever really got used to.
It seemed oddly inevitable, though, facing death again. Like I really was marked
for disaster. I'd escaped time and time again, but it kept coming back for me.
Still, this time was so different from the others.
You could run from someone you feared, you could try to fight someone you
hated. All my reactions were geared toward those kinds of killers - the monsters,
the enemies.
When you loved the one who was killing you, it left you no options. How could
you run, how could you fight, when doing so would hurt that beloved one? If your
life was all you had to give your beloved, how could you not give it?
If it was someone you truly loved? #Quote by Stephenie Meyer
Monsters quotes by Catherynne M Valente
#142. I'm sure you've heard people talk about their Heart's Desire - well that's a load of rot. Hearts are idiots. They're big and squishy and full of daft dreams. They flounce off to write poetry and moon at folk who aren't worth the mooning. Bones are the ones that have to make the journey, fight the monster, kneel before whomever is big on kneeling these days. Bones do the work for the heart's grand plans. Bones know what you need. Hearts only know want. #Quote by Catherynne M Valente
Monsters quotes by C.K. Walker
#143. It's a long story, but one you've never heard before. This story is about a place that dwells on the mountain; a place where bad things happen. And you may think you know about the bad things, you may decide you have it all figured out but you don't. Because the truth is worse than monsters or men. #Quote by C.K. Walker
Monsters quotes by Rick Riordan
#144. First thing I'd do is make sure the poor newbie demigods don't have to suffer through the orientation film."
All conversation stopped. "What orientation film?" Will Solace asked.
Nico looked puzzled. "You know ..." He glanced side to side, clearly uncomfortable with everybody watching him. Finally he cleared his throat and sang in a warbly voice to the tune of "The Hokey Cokey": "It lets the demigods in! It shuts the monsters out! It keeps the half-bloods safe, but turns mortals all about! It's Misty, and it's magic, and it makes me want to shout: the border is all about!" He punctuated the last line of the song with some half-hearted claps.
We stared at him in stunned silence.
"Nico." Will patted his boyfriend's arm. "You're scaring the other campers."
"More than usual," Julia Feingold muttered under her breath.
"Oh, come on," Nico protested. "You've all heard that annoying song, right? It's from Welcome to Camp Half-Blood."
Nobody responded.
"The orientation film," Nico added.
We shared a group shrug.
Nico groaned. "You mean I just sang in public and ... I'm the only one who's ever seen that stupid film?"
"So far, anyway," said Connor Stoll. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Monsters quotes by George R R Martin
#145. You realize I had half my guard out searching for you?" Eddard Stark said when they were alone. "Septa Mordane is beside herself with fear. She's in the sept praying for your safe return. Arya, you know you are never to go beyond the castle gates without my leave."
"I didn't go out the gates," she blurted. "Well, I didn't mean to. I was down in the dungeons, only they turned into this tunnel. It was all dark, and I didn't have a torch or a candle to see by, so I had to follow. I couldn't go back the way I came on account of the monsters. Father, they were talking about killing you! Not the monsters, the two men. They didn't see me, I was being still as stone and quiet as a shadow, but I heard them. They said you had a book and a bastard and if one Hand could die, why not a second? Is that the book? Jon's the bastard, I bet. #Quote by George R R Martin
Monsters quotes by Anne Lamott
#146. He told me about his monster. His sounded just like mine without quite so much mascara. When people shine a little light on their monster, we find out how similar most of our monsters are. #Quote by Anne Lamott

Monsters quotes by Terry Pratchett
#148. You'd better tell me what you know, toad," said Tiffany. "Miss Tick isn't here. I am."
"Another world is colliding with this one," said the toad. "There. Happy now? That's what Miss Tick thinks. But it's happening faster than she expected. All the monsters are coming back."
"There's no one to stop them."
There was silence for a moment.
"There's me," said Tiffany. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Monsters quotes by Nikita Gill
#149. The monsters were never

Because the monsters

Monsters quotes by Brenna Yovanoff
#150. It was completely unshocking that there were monsters in the world, secret
rituals and underground burrows filled with the dead, when in my own way, I was secret and sort of monstrous too. It just didn't show in the same way. #Quote by Brenna Yovanoff
Monsters quotes by J.R. Ward
#151. Matthias was in the dark. And it wasn't the kind of dark that came with a room that didn't have any lights on or when you were walking around at night in the country. This was not even the kind you got when you shut your eyes and wrapped your head in a blanket.

This was the one that seeped in through your skin and filled the spaces between your molecules, the one that polluted your flesh into a permanent state of rotting, the one that wiped clean your past and your future, suspending you in a choking, adhesive solution of sorrow and despair.

He was not alone in this horrible prison.

As he writhed in the weightless void, others did the same, their voices mixing with his own as pleas escaped from cracked lips and the endless begging for mercy rose and fell like the breathing of a great beast. From time to time, he was chosen for special attention, clawed monsters with fanged maws latching on, yanking and pulling. The wounds they imparted always healed as quickly as they were wrought, providing an ever-fresh canvas for their masticating artwork.

Time had no meaning; nor did age. And he knew he was never getting out.

This was his due.

This was his eternal payment for the way he had lived his life: He had earned this place in Hell through his sins upon the earth, and yet still, he argued the unfairness to the others he was trapped with. Tough debate, though. There was little on the good side to support his bid for f #Quote by J.R. Ward

Monsters quotes by Mira Grant
#153. We're all monsters ... Being a monster is not the same as being a bad person. It just means you're willing to eat the world if that's what you have to do to keep yourself alive. #Quote by Mira Grant
Monsters quotes by David Wong
#154. It was a sunrise, a kid's sight of snowfall on a school morning. Hope. That all this can turn out okay, that somehow a tide this big and black can be turned back. Hope like a wildfire, thoughts of presents under a Christmas tree and a smell of cookies coming from a kitchen and a certain look in a girl's eyes that lights you up inside. That beautiful border between nightmare and morning when you realize that all of the monsters menacing you have evaporated like smoke, leaving behind only the warm blanket and the pale sunlight of a Saturday dawn. #Quote by David Wong
Monsters quotes by Knut Hamsun
#155. The ships whose masts I saw outlined against the sky looked, with their black hulls, like silent monsters that were raising their hackles and lying in wait for me. #Quote by Knut Hamsun
Monsters quotes by Rachel Vincent
#156. But if monsters could look like humans, and humans could look like monsters, how could anyone ever really be sure that the right people stood on the outside of all those cages? #Quote by Rachel Vincent
Monsters quotes by Plato
#157. To these statements, Socrates, no one can offer a reply; but when you talk in this way, a strange feeling passes over the minds of your hearers: They fancy that they are led astray a little at each step in the argument, owing to their own want of skill in asking and answering questions; these littles accumulate, and at the end of the discussion they are found to have sustained a mighty overthrow and all their former notions appear to be turned upside down. And as unskilful players of draughts are at last shut up by their more skilful adversaries and have no piece to move, so they too find themselves shut up at last; for they have nothing to say in this new game of which words are the counters; and yet all the time they are in the right. The observation is suggested to me by what is now occurring. For any one of us might say, that although in words he is not able to meet you at each step of the argument, he sees as a fact that the votaries of philosophy, when they carry on the study, not only in youth as a part of education, but as the pursuit of their maturer years, most of them become strange monsters, not to say utter rogues, and that those who may be considered the best of them are made useless to the world by the very study which you extol. #Quote by Plato
Monsters quotes by Youngha
#158. Growing up, I believed in all sorts of fantastic things. Ghosts and aliens, monsters that brought on nightmares and fed on fear. The fantasies materialized every time I closed my eyes, making me afraid to fall asleep. I'm still scared of sleeping alone. The yawn the sneeze, the breath of whoever's lying next to me retrieves me from the nightmares. Even though I'm all grown up. I say it like a joke, and it usually gives people a laugh. "You're still a little kid," they say. It's lonely being in a big bed all by myself. It's never hurt my feelings. They're only strangers. #Quote by Youngha
Monsters quotes by E.K. Blair

Monsters quotes by Oliver Markus Malloy
#167. The Wall is nothing more than a talking point Trump uses to trigger his racist and xenophobic base. MAGA minions have been brainwashed by Nazi propaganda techniques to see foreigners as evil monsters who want to exterminate white America, and Trump as their protector who was sent by God. #Quote by Oliver Markus Malloy
Monsters quotes by Clarice Lispector

Monsters quotes by Rick Yancey
#170. It occurred to me ... that aberrance is a wholly human construct. There were no such things as monsters outside the human mind. We are vain and arrogant, evolution's highest achievement and most dismal failure, prisoners of our self-awareness and the illusion that we stand in the center, that there is us and then there is everything else but us. But we do not stand apart from or above or in the middle of anything. There is nothing apart, nothing above, and the middle is everywhere - and nowhere. We are no more beautiful and essential or magnificent than an earthworm. In fact - and dare we go there, you and I? - you could say the worm is more beautiful, because it is innocent and we are not. The worm has no motive but to survive long enough to make baby worms. There is no betrayal, no cruelty, no envy, no lust, and no hatred in the worm's heart, and so who are the monsters and which species shall we call aberrant? #Quote by Rick Yancey
Monsters quotes by Ilsa J. Bick
#171. You really didn't appreciate how thick, how powerful water was until you had to fight it. #Quote by Ilsa J. Bick
Monsters quotes by Laurell K. Hamilton
#172. Sometimes the monsters are real, Anita. Sometimes they're real and the only way to defeat them is to be the bigger monster.'

Monsters quotes by Foundation For Inner Peace
#173. Children perceive frightening ghosts and monsters and dragons and they are terrified. Yet if they ask someone they trust for the meaning of what they perceive, and are willing to let their own interpretations go in favor of reality, their fear goes with them. When a child is helped to translate his 'ghosts' into a courtain, his 'monster' into a shadow and his 'dragon' into a dream he is no longer afraid, and laughs happily at his own fear.
You, my child, are afraid of your brothers and of your Father and of yourself. But you are merely deceived in them. Ask what they are of the Teacher of reality, and hearing His answer, you too will laugh at your fears and replace them with peace. For fear lies not in reality, but in the minds of children who do not understand reality. It is only their lack of understanding that frightens them, and when they learn to perceive truly they are not afraid. #Quote by Foundation For Inner Peace

#174. There's Ambien-in-alcohol weird and then there's Ambien-mistaken-for-cocaine weird. #Quote by Tanya Thompson
Monsters quotes by Seanan McGuire
#175. There's nothing wrong with having a few monsters in the shadows. They keep me remembering what it is that I'm walking away from. #Quote by Seanan McGuire
Monsters quotes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
#176. It is curious to note the old sea-margins of human thought! Each subsiding century reveals some new mystery; we build where monsters used to hide themselves. #Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Monsters quotes by Cormac McCarthy
#177. They rode like men invested with a purpose whose origins were antecedent to them, like blood legatees of an order both imperative and remote. For although each man among them was discrete unto himself, conjoined they made a thing that had not been before and in that communal soul were wastes hardly reckonable more than those whited regions on old maps where monsters do live and where there is nothing other of the known world save conjectural winds. #Quote by Cormac McCarthy
Monsters quotes by Kim Karr
#178. Staring down at my wrist, I can't believe what I'm looking at. This adorably sweet and sexy man has just placed a very colorful linked bracelet of the cutest Pac-Man on my wrist. It has a yellow Pac-Man with the blue, red, pink, and orange monsters on it.
"I love it!" I manage as I swallow back my tears of joy. I throw myself around him and say, "Thank you."
He lifts me up and twirls me just once before setting me down. "Happy?"
Smiling up at him, I respond, "More than happy. #Quote by Kim Karr

#180. Men are monsters all, and something in them wants to force others to see the world the same way they see it. #Quote by M.J. Rose
Monsters quotes by David Denby
#181. The Nazis, for him, are merely available movie tropes
articulate monsters with a talent for sadism. By making the Americans cruel, too, he escapes the customary division of good and evil along national lines, but he escapes any sense of moral accountability as well. In a Tarantino war, everyone commits atrocities. Like all the director's work after 'Jackie Brown,' the movie is pure sensation. It's disconnected from feeling, and an eerie blankness
it's too shallow to be called nihilism
undermines even the best scenes. #Quote by David Denby
Monsters quotes by John Quincy Adams
#182. America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. #Quote by John Quincy Adams
Monsters quotes by M.F. Moonzajer
#183. I am born here among the monsters; if I have to survive I must act like one of them. #Quote by M.F. Moonzajer
Monsters quotes by Kate Forsyth
#184. When our ancestors crouched about the camp fire at night, they told each other tales of gods and heroes, monsters and marvels, to hold back the terrors of the night. Such tales comforted and entertained, diverted and educated those who listened, and helped shape their sense of the world and their place in it. #Quote by Kate Forsyth
Monsters quotes by Catherynne M. Valente
#185. If you are a monster, stand up.
If you are a monster, a trickster, a fiend,
If you've built a steam-powered wishing machine
If you have a secret, a dark past, a scheme,
If you kidnap maidens or dabble in dreams
Come stand by me.

If you have been broken, stand up.
If you have been broken, abandoned, alone
If you have been starving, a creature of bone
If you live in a tower, a dungeon, a throne
If you weep for wanting, to be held, to be known,
Come stand by me.

If you are a savage, stand up.
If you are a witch, a dark queen, a black knight,
If you are a mummer, a pixie, a sprite,
If you are a pirate, a tomcat, a wright,
If you swear by the moon and you fight the hard fight,
Come stand by me.

If you are a devil, stand up.
If you are a villain, a madman, a beast,
If you are a strowler, a prowler, a priest,
If you are a dragon come sit at our feast,
For we all have stripes, and we all have horns,
We all have scales, tails, manes, claws and thorns
And here in the dark is where new worlds are born.
Come stand by me. #Quote by Catherynne M. Valente
Monsters quotes by Mary Shelley
#186. I beheld the wretch-the miserable monster whom I had created. #Quote by Mary Shelley

#187. It's wrong for a state to turn its people into monsters, even to secure ourselves, bacause we draw the line at becoming what we behold #Quote by Kirsten Beyer
Monsters quotes by G.S. Jennsen
#188. You ask me to make peace with the monsters who did this?"

She didn't even look around at 'this.' "Yes. The alternative is extinction. There's no coming back from that - no new weapon to fire when no one is left and you've no universe left to fire it in. #Quote by G.S. Jennsen
Monsters quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#189. Watch them clamber, these swift monkeys! They clamber over one another and thus drag one another into the mud and the depth. They all want to get to the throne: that is their madness - as if happiness sat on the throne. Often, mud sits on the throne - and often the throne also on mud. Mad they all appear to me, clambering monkeys and overardent. Foul smells their idol, the cold monster: foul, they smell to me altogether, these idolators. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Monsters quotes by Yahtzee Croshaw
#190. Originally it had had two settings: Stun and Kill. These had proved inadequate against the ridiculously well-armored skin of monsters from particularly rough planets, so I'd found a way to tinker with the built-in limitations. The dial now had a third setting, labeled with the handwritten words 'Solve All Immediate Problems. #Quote by Yahtzee Croshaw
Monsters quotes by Gavin De Becker
#191. It is similar to one brother asking another, "Why did you grow up to be a drunk?" The answer is "Because Dad was a drunk." The second brother then asks, "Why didn't you grow up to be a drunk?" The answer is "Because Dad was a drunk." Some more complete answers are found in Robert Ressler's classic book Whoever Fights Monsters. He speaks of the tremendous importance of the early puberty period for boys. Before then, the anger of these boys might have been submerged and without focus, perhaps turned inward in the form of depression, perhaps (as in most cases) just denied, to emerge later. But during puberty, this anger collides with another powerful force, one of the most powerful in nature: sexuality. Even at this point, say Ressler and others, these potential hosts of monsters can be turned around through the (often unintentional) intervention of people who show kindness, support, or even just interest. I can say from experience that it doesn't take much. #Quote by Gavin De Becker
Monsters quotes by Jim Butcher
#192. Nameless hideous monsters are freaking terrifying. You always fear what you don't know, what you don't understand, and the first step to having understanding of something is to know what to call it. It's a habit of mine to give names to anything I wind up interacting with if it doesn't have one readily available. Names have power
magically, sure, but far more important, they have psychological power. Something horrible with a name holds less power over you, less terror, than something horrible without one. #Quote by Jim Butcher
Monsters quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#193. State is the name of the coldest of all cold monsters. It even lies coldly, and this lie crawls out of its mouth: "I, the state, am the people." This is a lie! The ones who created the peoples were the creators, they hung a faith and a love over them, and thus they served life. The ones who set traps for the many and call them "state" are annihilators, they hang a sword and a hundred cravings over them. Where there are still peoples the state is not understood, and it is hated as the evil eye and the sin against customs and rights. This #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche

Monsters quotes by Margaret Case Harriman
#195. Here was a corporation behaving like a monster though the individuals who owned its stock were human cultivated men. A corporation has no soul. #Quote by Margaret Case Harriman
Monsters quotes by Katie Cross
#196. One does not have to see the sea to know that monsters live there. #Quote by Katie Cross
Monsters quotes by Terry Pratchett
#197. He famously defended fairy stories against those who said they told children that there were monsters; children already know that there are monsters, he said, and fairy stories teach them that monsters can be killed. We now know that the monsters may not simply have scales and sleep under a mountain. They may be in our own heads. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Monsters quotes by Minecrafty Family
#198. You know how my first few minutes in a new Minecraft world are usually spent screaming, running for my life, and hiding from scary monsters - sometimes even GIANT ones! Well, not this time! Instead of a giant monster, I was plopped down in front of a giant MANSION! (Yay, Minecraft: Peaceful Paradise floating book!) And the best part was that it wasn't all dark and creepy like the Haunted House! It was an awesome modern mansion made of white stone and glass. Even better, it was built on a hillside overlooking an ocean! Actually, it reminded me of Tony Stark's house in one of my favorite movies, Iron Man. I guess you could say it's a MARVEL-ous mansion! (Heh, heh.) Anyway, #Quote by Minecrafty Family
Monsters quotes by Virginia Woolf
#199. Oh, but she never wanted James to grow a day older or Cam either. These two she would have liked to keep for ever just as the way they were, demons of wickedness, angels of delight, never to see them grow up into long-legged monsters. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Monsters quotes by Elizabeth Finn
#200. Can't we just forget about the monsters," he whispered, his lips touching and teasing my earlobe. "All I want is to remember us. #Quote by Elizabeth Finn
