Terror Quotes

The concept of progress acts as a protective mechanism to shield us from the terrors of the future. ~ Dune by Frank Herbert The terror, which would not end for another 28 years-if it ever did end-began, so far as I know or can tell, with a boat made from a sheet of newspaper floating down a gutter swollen with rain. ~ It by Stephen King In the middle of the night she woke up dreaming of huge white heads like turnips, that came trailing after her, at the end of interminable necks, and with vast black eyes. But being a sensible woman, she subdued her terrors and turned over and went to sleep again. ~ The Invisible Man by H. G. Wells The terror of society, which is the basis of morals, the terror of God, which is the secret of religion--these are the two things that govern us. ~ The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde He understood now why the world was strange, why horses galloped furiously, and why trains whistled as they raced through stations. All the comedy and terror of nightmare gripped his heart with pincers made of ice. ~ The Other Wing by Algernon Blackwood And something born of the snowy desolation, born of the midnight and the silent grandeur, born of the great listening hollows of the night, something that lay 'twixt terror and wonder, dropped from the vast wintry spaces down into his heart—and called him. ~ The Glamour of the Snow by Algernon Blackwood This man, who violated the laws of heaven and earth with little terror of the Divine vengeance, feared above all to be cut by the men of his set. ~ Run to Earth by Mary Elizabeth Braddon The young woman who brought me acquainted with Captain Murderer had a fiendish enjoyment of my terrors, and used to begin, I remember - as a sort of introductory overture - by clawing the air with both hands, and uttering a long low hollow groan. So acutely did I suffer from this ceremony in combination with this infernal Captain, that I sometimes used to plead I thought I was hardly strong enough and old enough to hear the story again just yet. ~ The Uncommercial Traveller - Nurse's Stories by Charles Dickens "Too much! Wait till you have lived here longer. Look down the valley! See the cloud of a hundred chimneys that overshadows it! I tell you that the cloud of murder hangs thicker and lower than that over the heads of the people. It is the Valley of Fear, the Valley of Death. The terror is in the hearts of the people from the dusk to the dawn. Wait, young man, and you will learn for yourself." ~ The Valley of Fear by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle I have, indeed, no abhorrence of danger, except in its absolute effect - in terror. ~ The Fall of the House of Usher by Edgar Allan Poe
