Laughter is the evidence that we're still here, the proof that our tragedies will not define us forever. Laughter is the language of the survivor. ~ Josh James Riebock
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Josh James Riebock
To animals they were just the weather, just part of everything.
But humans arose and gave them names, just as people filled the starry sky with heroes and monsters, because this turned them into stories.
And humans loved stories, because once you'd turned things into stories, you could change the stories. ~ Terry Pratchett
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Terry Pratchett
I want love without drama, romance without pain. I want intimacy without vulnerability. I want a guarantee. I want something that doesnt exist. Maybe we all do. Maybe we're all chasing unicorns. ~ Josh James Riebock
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Josh James Riebock
The world isn't large enough for heroes and monsters at once. There's too much danger of confusion between the two categories. ~ Maria Dahvana Headley
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Maria Dahvana Headley
There's only room for one hero in this story-and everyone knows the devil doesn't get to be the good guy. ~ Joe Hill
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Joe Hill
I was a coward. I've been a coward. So have you. We've both got blood on our hands. We're not the heroes who saved the world, we're the villains who survived it. I've made my peace with that. You should, too, because guilt is a weight you'll never swim away from. ~ Dianna Hardy
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Dianna Hardy
He knows how to make me laugh & sometimes there's no better way to love someone than that. ~ Josh James Riebock
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Josh James Riebock
I dont understand, but understanding something isnt a prerequisite to feeling it. We dont have to understand things in order to be affected by them. ~ Josh James Riebock
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Josh James Riebock
There is no merit where there is no trial; and till experience stamps the mark of strength, cowards may pass for heroes, and faith for falsehood. ~ Aaron Hill
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Aaron Hill
Remove hope from humanity and you'll be left with monsters. ~ Shantelee R. Brown
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Shantelee R. Brown
Fight the monsters, then, Phillip. Don't fight the innocent bystanders who happen to come from the same place. You're not afraid of magic, not really. You're just afraid of what you don't understand - and too stubborn to try understanding. ~ William Ritter
Heroes And Monsters quotes by William Ritter
James Baldwin's words haunt: "People who shut their eyes to reality simply invite their own destruction, and anyone who insists on remaining in a state of innocence long after that innocence is dead turns himself into a monster." Are we a nation of monsters? ~ Eddie S. Glaude Jr.
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Eddie S. Glaude Jr.
Left to faggots and their defenders, all our forefathers, eminent ancestors and international heroes were either homosexual or bisexual. ~ Bill Gaede
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Bill Gaede
Where 'Dragon Quest Monsters' originated from was 'Dragon Quest V,' where you had a monster befriending system as a main part: you could actually befriend monsters and have them fight on behalf of your party, as part of your party. ~ Yuji Horii
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Yuji Horii
Tammy, werewulves act in ways that are pleasing only to themselves. They behave without a conscious... They are sick monsters who have permanently lost their self-control. Their intentions and motivations are never clear; they slaughter flocks and herds yet eat nothing. They are the quintessence of evil, hence the title "demon". And who really wants demons around? ~ Melanie Fair
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Melanie Fair
My mama didn't raise any fools and she didn't raise any heroes. ~ Amanda Hocking
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Amanda Hocking
Some people came into the world and never once looked up to see the lives around them
they were so focused on what they wanted, what they needed. No one else mattered to them. They disconnected from sympathy and pity and guilt. Some people came into the world as monsters. I understood that now. ~ Alexandra Bracken
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Alexandra Bracken
But the monsters weren't in her room – they were in the room down the hall, and they all had a name: Stephen Loveguard. ~ Vrinda Pendred
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Vrinda Pendred
The anti-hero or hero usually has a journey or quest so they are interesting as you find out what's going to happen, what they are looking for. What are they trying to do? Sometimes what they do is heroic or comes with a price or sacrifice or maybe the way they do things isn't so great and that's when they become anti-heroes. But the journey of an anti-hero combined with a good story done well is always worthwhile. ~ Keanu Reeves
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Keanu Reeves
They flew her," Matt pointed out. "Sure they did - and my hat's off to them. But it takes heroes to fly a box as primitive as this and I'm not the hero type. ~ Robert A. Heinlein
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
It is, of course, much easier for a literary character to take a risk for love. The realities of social strata and responsibility mean nothing but a plot point in today's modern literature, but outside of these stories we are not pushing for change. The ideals we embody in our art rarely play themselves out in our lives. What would happen if we took the example of our fictional heroes; what if each of us was a Don Juan? ~ Evelyn Pryce
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Evelyn Pryce
Boileau said that Kings, Gods and Heroes only were fit subjects for literature. The writer can only write about what he admires. Present-day kings aren't very inspiring, the gods are on a vacation and about the only heroes left are the scientists and the poor. ~ John Steinbeck
Heroes And Monsters quotes by John Steinbeck
My job takes up many daylight hours, it wakes me in the still of night and fills my head with ghosts and monsters but I love it, telling stories is what I was born to do. ~ Ken Scott
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Ken Scott
He'd learned years ago it was better not to dwell too much on who was related to whom on the godly side of things. After Tyson the Cyclops adopted him as a brother, Percy decided that that was about as far as he wanted to extend the family. ~ Rick Riordan
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Rick Riordan
What are you?" she asked. "A monster," said Kell hoarsely. "You'd better let me go." The girl gave a small, mocking laugh. "Monsters don't faint in the presence of ladies." "Ladies don't dress like men and pick pockets," retorted Kell. Her smile only sharpened. "What are you really?" "Tied to your bed," said Kell matter-of-factly. "And?" His brow furrowed. "And in trouble. ~ Victoria Schwab
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Victoria Schwab
There were monsters in the night but there were monsters in the day too, and monsters inside people who smiled and showed you all their teeth like they were nice. There were monsters inside Alice, but they only had power if she gave it to them, and other things had power too, like the laughter of children enjoying a picnic together and like the love she had for this terrible, wonderful, imperfect man, this man who hid inside the body of a wolf because he thought that was where he belonged. ~ Christina Henry
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Christina Henry
I wanted to be a part of it.
But I couldn't ask, and I needed to stop lying to myself. Because every second I stayed with them was another chance for them to discover the skip tracers and PSFs weren't the real monsters of the world. No. One of the real ones was sitting in their back seat. ~ Alexandra Bracken
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Alexandra Bracken
If I were fierce, and bald, and short of breath,I'd live with scarlet Majors at the Base,And speed glum heroes up the line of death. ~ Siegfried Sassoon
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Siegfried Sassoon
Phoebe Hurty hired me to write copy for ads about teen aged clothes. I had to wear the clothes I praised. That was part of the job. And I became friends with her two sons, who were my age. I was over at their house all the time.

She would talk bawdily to me and her sons, and our girlfriends when we brought them around. She was funny. She was liberating. She taught us to be impolite in conversation not only about sexual matters, but about American history and famous heroes, about the distribution of wealth, about school, about everything.

I now make my living being impolite. I am clumsy at it. I keep trying to imitate the impoliteness which was so graceful in Phoebe Hurty. I think now that grace was easier for her than it is for me because of the mood of the Great Depression. She believed what so many Americans believed then: that the nation would be happy and just and rational when prosperity came.

I never hear that word anymore: Prosperity. It used to be a synonym for Paradise. And Phoebe Hurty was able to believe that the impoliteness she recommended would give shape to an American paradise.

Now her sort of impoliteness is in fashion. But nobody believes anymore in a new American paradise. I sure miss Phoebe Hurty. ~ Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
In the far reaches of the world, under a lost and lonely hill, lies the TOMB OF HORRORS. This labyrinthine crypt is filled with terrible traps, strange and ferocious monsters, rich and magical treasures, and somewhere within rests the evil DemiLich. ~ Ernest Cline
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Ernest Cline
Never be decieved by exterior decorations, some monsters go about on suit and tie and of course a Bible. ~ Paul Bamikole
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Paul Bamikole
We like to stress the commonness of heroes. Essences seem undemocratic. We feel oppressed by the call to greatness. We regard an interest in glory or perfection as a sign of mental unhealthiness, and have decided that high achievers, who are called overachievers, owe their surplus ambition to a defect in mothering (either too little or too much). We want to admire but think we have a right not to be intimidated. We dislike feeling inferior to an ideal. So away with ideals, with essences. The only ideals allowed are healthy ones
those everyone may aspire to, or comfortably imagine oneself possessing. ~ Susan Sontag
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Susan Sontag
I do think we need heroes. It gives people hope and an example to follow. ~ Riley Keough
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Riley Keough
Shakespeare, Rembrandt, Beethoven will make films... all legends, all mythologies and all myths, all founders of religion, and the very religions... await their exposed resurrection, and the heroes crowd each other at the gate. ~ Abel Gance
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Abel Gance
Monsters are getting more uppity, too ( ... ) I heard where this guy, he killed this monster in this lake, no problem, stuck its arm up over the door ( ... ) and you know what? Its mum come and complained. Its actual mum come right down to the hall next day and complained. Actually complained. That's the respect you get. ~ Terry Pratchett
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Terry Pratchett
The difference between being Achilles and almost being Achilles is the difference between living and dying. ~ Thomas C. Foster
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Thomas C. Foster
Literature...describes a descent. First, gods. Then demigods. Then epic became tragedy: failed kings, failed heroes. Then the gentry. Then the middle class and its mercantile dreams. Then it was about you--Gina, Gilda: social realism. Then it was about them: lowlife. Villains. The ironic age...Literature, for a while, can be about us...:about writers. But that won't last long. How do we burst clear of all this? And he asked them: Whither the novel? ... Supposing...that the progress of literature (downward) was forced in that direction by the progress of cosmology (upward--up, up). For human beings, the history of cosmology is the history of increasing humiliation. Always hysterically but less and less fiercely resisted, as one illusion after another fell away. ~ Martin Amis
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Martin Amis
There was a moment, however, when the King and I were looking directly into each other's eyes, and in that instant I had a revelation that takes much longer to explain than to experience. Here am I, I reflected, being decorated as a hero, and in the eyes of everybody here I am indeed a hero; but I know that my heroic act was rather a dirty job I did when I was dreadfully frightened; I could just as easily have muddled it and been ingloriously killed. But it doesn't much matter, because people seem to need heroes; so long as I don't lose sight of the truth, it might as well be me as anyone else. And here before me stands a marvellously groomed little man who is pinning a hero's medal on me because some of his forebears were Alfred the Great, and Charles the First, and even King Arthur, for anything I know to the contrary. But I shouldn't be surprised if inside he feels as puzzled about the fate that brings him here as I. ~ Robertson Davies
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Robertson Davies
Mantua gave me birth, Calabri snatched me away, now Parthenope holds me; I sang of shepherds, pastures, and heroes. -Mantua me genuit, Calabri rapuere, tenet nunc Parthenope, cecini pascua, rura, duces ~ Virgil
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Virgil
There are those moments where you realize that your parents or your heroes are human and are fallible. That concept, in and of itself, is something that is dangerous to me, in a good way. It's exciting and scary to meet those people. ~ Simon Helberg
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Simon Helberg
Historical periodization always tells a story. It is a narrative device for putting meaning into the flux of historical process - creating protagonists, heroes, pace, and plot. For this reason, the division of history into periods always carries an ideological load, and it is a methodological imperative to approach questions of broad historical periodization with this in mind. ~ James Ferguson
Heroes And Monsters quotes by James Ferguson
Heroes are people who rise to the occasion and slip quietly away. ~ Tom Brokaw
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Tom Brokaw
My intention, this time, was to transfer a play to the screen while keeping its theatrical character. It was in some senses a matter of walking, invisibly, around the stage and catching the different aspects and nuances in the play, the urgency and the facial expressions that escape a spectator who cannot follow them in detail from a seat in the stalls.
Apart from that, I had noticed how effective a play becomes when you have a bird's-eye view from it, for example from the flies, that is to say from the viewpoint of a voyeur. The Audience is enclosed with the characters in a room lacking its fourth wall and listens to them on equal terms, without the element of my story conferred on scenes of intimacy by the whimsical shape of a keyhole."
"L'aigle à deux têtes is not History. It is a story, an invented story lived out by imaginary heroes, and I should never have dared venture into the realistic world of cinema without being able to rely on the help of Christian Bérard. He has a genius for situating whatever he touches, for giving it a depth in time and space and an appearance of truth that are literally inimitable." (...)

"A drama of this kind would be unacceptable, and almost impossible to tell, unless it was interpreted by superb actors who could instill grandeur and life into it. Edwige Feuillère and Jean Marais, applauded evening after evening in their parts in the play, surpass themselves on the screen and give of themselves, as I suggested above, e ~ Jean Cocteau
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Jean Cocteau
There were monsters abroad, there was no denying it - but what of the thousands of people in Thebes and in the rest of Egypt who had not robbed tombs?
The tally of those who had not bowed to greed far outweighed that of those who had. It was easy to forget that fact amid the horror of the acts of the guilty. Wenatef had lost sight it for a time, but now it was as though he were surrounded by a great, silent multitude: the honorable and faithful ones who had not done wrong. ~ Diana Wilder
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Diana Wilder
Oh, it's nothing to be ashamed of. Slaying a villain in the service of your king is the stuff of legends and what heroes are made of." [Fanen told Myron]
"It didn't feel very heroic. It made me sick. I don't even know why I ... no, that's a lie. I really have to stop doing that." [Myron said]
"Doing what?"
"Lying. ( ... ) It's evidence of self loathing. You see, when you are so ashamed of your actions, thoughts, or intentions, you lie to hide it rather than accept yourself for who you really are. The idea of how others see you becomes more important than the reality of you.
"It's like when a man would rather die than be thought of a coward. His life is not as important to him as his reputation. In the end, who is the braver? The man who dies rather than be thought of as a coward or the man who lives willing to face who he really is?" [Myron finished]
"I'm sorry, you lost me there" Fanen said with a quizzical look. ~ Michael J. Sullivan
Heroes And Monsters quotes by Michael J. Sullivan
If you look at what Ben Affleck has gone on to do, as an actor and as a director, it's extraordinary. But if you look back at his career, I don't think it's surprising. From Good Will Hunting on down, the guy is a monster talent, and I think talent wins out, in the end. There's always the ebb and flow of any career, but I think talent wins out, in the end. ~ Joseph McGinty Nichol
