“Our human race is a colony of ants, Mr. Lawton, inhabiting an anthill at the edge of a limitless chasm called infinity.”
Brian Lumley, The Taint and Other Novellas

“And it was in that moment of distress and confusion that the whip of terror laid its most nicely calculated lash about his heart.”
Algernon Blackwood, The Wendigo

“the Wendigo is simply the Call of the Wild personified, which some natures hear to their own destruction.”
Algernon Blackwood, The Wendigo

“it takes a long time to undo the years of behavioral conditioning compelling you to fuck up.”
Michael Kazepis, Long Lost Dog of It

“He reached down and picked up the ear and threw it at a stray. The dog sniffed it, snapped it up and wandered off down the street, chewing.”
