“THERE IT IS,’ my mother says, and what she means is that the dot we’ve been nearing for weeks, the one that’s been growing into a larger dot with two smaller dots circling it, has now become even larger than that, growing from a dot to a disc, shining back the light from its sun, until you can see the blue of its oceans, the green of its forests, the white of its polar caps, a circle of colour against the black beyond.”

“When a monster grows quiet and crumbles to the ground weeping, you feel sorry for him. You may approach with caution and hope, whispering words of peace. But in the morning he will rise to his full height, roaring and stomping and baring his sharp teeth because he is, after all, a monster.”

“Finalmente, los monstruos, con sus extrañas y extraordinarias apariencias, niegan la perfección del mundo y del orden establecido.

Isabel Santaularia Capdevila, El Monstruo Humanouna Introducción A La Ficción De Los Asesinos En Serie

C. JoyBell C.
“A not-so-easy pill to swallow, is the fact that much of the time, you are fighting monsters that you yourself have fashioned. Yes, there are toxic relationships, toxic individuals, but there also exists the monsters that you have fashioned with your own mind. You think you are being chased, captured, wounded, by these monsters when in fact you alone are composed of the entire capability to dismantle them piece-by-piece, because in reality they exist in your mind and you have fashioned them as the creator of your inner world, as the author of your own epic tale. In this sense, you may reassemble your world and you may remake the plot of your own story. The key is realising how much of the darkness is actually your own doing, digging for their roots, and figuring out how to begin dismantling.”
C. JoyBell C.

“Crager hold the key to our city's survival. Ensign, I know you've never been tested out in the field. We need a sample. He's a monster, son. Something morphed and mutated. He's a nomad running amok in the world with nothing tethering him to civilization. It's asking a lot, but we need you.”
Kenneth C. Brown, Nomad's Pursuit: Into The Savage Book 1

“Some dark nights hide the cruelest of secrets. Such are the tales of the dark shadows hidden in that old castle in a distant land. The story of ages started with a classic; highlighting the infamous monster made out of a man.”

“Just because you were human didn't mean you weren't a monster.”

Jennifer Weiner
“I gave you everything," Hal shouted.
"No, you took everything!" she yelled back. "You took my name away!"
Hal looked as bewildered as if she'd slapped him. Then his jolly, reasonable look was back, the mask once again in place.
"Daisy," he said, his voice calm.
"That's not my name!" she shrieked.
He reached out to put his hands on her shoulders, as he'd done so many times before, to hold her still, to instruct her, and in her head she ducked and saw Hal stumbling forward, grabbing for the wobbly post, the one that had never been repaired. She saw his feet skid on the slick surface of the deck, saw his arms pinwheeling, hands groping, reaching for her, for help that wouldn't come. She saw him fall, thudding down one, two, three, four, five, six flights of stairs, to lie, broken and motionless, on the sand, limbs twisted, eyes open to the rain. She saw herself look down at him, seeing nothing but a male body around a man-shaped void. Not a man at all, but a creature with cold, flat eyes, a monster with instincts for self-preservation and a species of low cunning, but not a man, not a person who had loved her, or anyone.”
Jennifer Weiner, That Summer

John Gardner

“The world is peopled with monsters. Sometimes they prowl the streets, and other times they bear cities upon their shoulders. That does not make them admirable – far from it. It simply makes them all the more difficult to stop.”
Marc Collins, Grim Repast

Vamsidhar Chaturvedula
“And who do you think you are? A monster slayer? A god? And why do you think people listen to monster-slayers or gods? It is because they fear them more than monsters themselves.”
Vamsidhar Chaturvedula, Fight Story : Life Will Always Be a Fight Between Destiny and Will

Grayson heard his mother's voice”
