“”You…you out there! Do you know what horror is? Smug, confident, secure because you are sane. Do you know what madness is or how it strikes? Have you seen the demons that surge through the corridors of the crazed mind? Do you know that in the world of the insane you will find a kind of truth more terrifying than fiction? A truth that will shock you!”
Daughter of Horror
I’ve been working, from time to time, on a book of quotations for many years. I call it, “The Mind Boggles”, from one of my favorite quotations. I do source quotations a bit differently from a lot of people. In the case of a work of a fiction, I consider that the character said the line…not the author. As a bit of an author myself (in a minor way), I can tell you…my characters definitely say things that I would never say. These are all quotations that I’ve collected myself: I’ve read the book, seen the TV episode, and so on.
Hope you enjoy them!
