Famous quotes containing the words horrors, house and/or terror:
“At this very moment,... the most frightful horrors are taking place in every corner of the world. People are being crushed, slashed, disembowelled, mangled; their dead bodies rot and their eyes decay with the rest. Screams of pain and fear go pulsing through the air at the rate of eleven hundred feet per second. After travelling for three seconds they are perfectly inaudible. These are distressing facts; but do we enjoy life any the less because of them? Most certainly we do not.”
—Aldous Huxley (18941963)
“Most men appear never to have considered what a house is, and are actually though needlessly poor all their lives because they think they must have such a one as their neighbors have.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“Sixty years ago they smiled
At lover, husband, first-born child.
Smiles are for youth. For old age come
Deaths terror and delirium.”
—Philip Larkin (19221986)
