A Quote by Stephen King on person, become, change, and maps

No one can tell what goes on in between the person you were and the person you become.  There are no maps of the change. You just come out the other side.  Or you don't.

A Quote by Stephen King on love, afraid, fear, growth, and dark

They were nice enough people and all, but there wasn't much love in them.  Because they were too busy being afraid. Love didn't grow very well in a place where there was only fear, just as plants didn't grow very well in a place where it was always dark.

A Quote by Stephen King

"This is how we go on: One day at a time, one meal at a time, one pain at a time, one breath at a time... We say yes, I agree that the clouds often look like other things--fish and unicorns and men on horseback-- but they are really only clouds. Even when lightning flashes inside them we say they are only clouds and turn our attention to the next meal, the next pain, the next breath, the next page. This is how we go on."

A Quote by Stephen King on worry, despair, and unhappiness

I looked at the ceiling and wished this life was over.  This unhappy life that had started out so confidently.  I thought I would sleep no more that night but eventually I did.  In the end we always wear out our worries.That's what Wireman says.  (as the character Edgar from 'Duma Key')

A Quote by Stephen King on truth, devil, details, seeing, and art

Remember that the truth is in the details.  No matter how you see the world or what style it imposes on your work as an artist, the truth is in the details.  Of course the devil's there, too--everyone says so--but maybe truth and the devil are words for the same thing.  It could be you know.

A Quote by Stephen King on night, darkness, despair, and hope

"You need hedges.""Hedges," I said, bemused.  "Yes, Edgar." He looked surprised and a little disappointed, as if I had failed to understand a very simple concept.  "Hedges against the night."(in conversation btwn Edgar and his Dr.)

A Quote by Stephen King on memory, absence, heroicism, re-living, re-making, and creation

How do we remember to remember?  That's a question I've asked myself often since my time on Duma Key, often in the small hours of the morning, looking up into the absence of light, remembering absent friends.  Sometimes in those little hours I think about the horizon.  You have to establish the horizon.  You have to mark the white.  A simple enough act, you might say, but any act that re-makes the world is heroic.  Or so I've come to believe. ~~as stated by Edgar in 'Duma Key'

A Quote by Stephen King

Man has come to dominate the planet thanks to two essential traits. One is intelligence. The other has been the absolute willingness to kill anyone and anything that gets in his way.

A Quote by Stephen King

You can't deny laughter; when it comes, it plops down in your favorite chair and stays as long as it wants.
