That’s the great secret of creativity. You treat ideas like cats: you make them follow you.

Ray Bradbury

If the sweetness of our lives did not depart, there would be no sweetness at all.

Stephen King, The Wind Through The Keyhole

A person’s never too old for stories. Man and boy, girl and woman, we live for them.

Stephen King, The Wind Through The Keyhole

Time is a keyhole, he thought as he looked up at the stars. Yes, I think so. We sometimes bend and per through it. And the wind we feel on our cheeks when we do it – the wind that blows through the keyhole – is the breath of all the living universe.

Stephen King, The Wind Through The Keyhole

Stephen King, The Wind Through The Keyhole

Pray for rain all you like, but dig a well as you do it.

Stephen King, The Wind Through the Keyhole

Chuck Palahniuk, Damned

It’s not true that your life flashes before your eyes when you die. At least, not all of it. Some of your life might flash. Other portions of your life it might take you years and years to recall.

Chuck Palahniuk, Damned

Reread that Bronte book all you want, but Jane Eyre’s never going to get gender-reassignment surgery or train to become a kick-ass ninja assassin.

Chuck Palahniuk, Damned

If the living are haunted by the dead, then the dead are haunted by their own mistakes.

Chuck Palahniuk, Damned
