Citáty Graham Masterton


„Je překvapivé, kdo a s čím se na mě obrací. Nedávno mi telefonovala sedmdesátiletá žena, jejíž manžel býval vrcholovým cyklistou, všichni ho obdivovali. Plakala, že ji bije. Byla desítky let obětí domácího násilí. Je strašně těžké něco jí v takové situaci radit, ale už jen to, že jí nasloucháte, pomáhá.“

„Just because you can't see them and you can't hear them, that doesn't mean they're not here.“ The Devil in Gray


„Parents always have their own ideas about how they wish their
children to be brought up, both morally and spiritually. But they must
understand that their children are not their property; that their children are
entitled to pursue happiness in any way they wish.“
Ritual

„Somewhere, all the people we have loved and lost are still among us, in the house that we call history.“

„Jeśli chce pan wiedzieć, to złorzeczyłem Bogu, że mnie zostawił. Czyż nie modliłem się zawsze, jak należy? Nie wierzyłem w Niego? Gdzie więc był wtedy... kiedy naprawdę Go potrzebowałem?“ Swimmer

„[... ] she hadn't realised how much she missed the company of women who laughed, women who spoke their own minds, women who didn't give a shit for anything.“ The House That Jack Built

„Because this woman sobbed in the way that all women sob, whether they do it outwardly or whether they keep it silently locked up inside themselves. They sob because they realise, one day, that they were born on a planet of men, and that short of death or spinsterhood they can never escape. Effie's Aunt Rachel used to say, 'Even the slaves could run away, but where can women go?“ The House That Jack Built

„Why does the life everlasting have to be won at such terrible cost? If the life
everlasting is true, why can it be achieved only through death, through grief, and
through agony? What kind of God is it who gives us the world and everything in it,
and the capabiliiy of loving so fiercely, and then takes it all away?“
Death Trance


„I hereby solemnly and sincerely declare before God that I will faithfully discharge the duties of a member of An Garda Síochána with fairness, integrity, regard for human rights, diligence and impartiality, upholding the constitution and the law and according equal respect to all people“ Red Light

„The way to avoid the tragedies of the past is not to let them happen to begin with.“ Broken Angels

„Heacox had disobeyed the first two
laws of safety and survival: Do not touch unless you have to, and then do not touch
until you've checked. And maybe here in the Temple of the Dead there was one
more law, even more important: Do not touch until you understand it.“

„It’s bad enough weeping for the loss of a love you once had. Don’t be after weeping for the loss of a love you never had at all.“ Broken Angels


„She climbed out of the car and walked across the farmyard with her raincoat collar turned up. Liam was standing by the open grave with his hands in the pockets of his long brown“ White Bones

„Katie walked slowly around the excavation, trying to make sense of all the bones that were lying there, jumbled up like pick-a-sticks as if somebody had tossed them up into the air and let them scatter at random. She could make out at least three pelvises, and two breastbones, and innumerable vertebrae. She was used“ White Bones

„But I’m looking at life from the opposite end of the telescope from you, and everything that once seemed so grand and impressive has all shrunk down to size. I can see now what could have been, but wasn’t, and I don’t want you to get to my age and feel the same way.“ Broken Angels

„In the hoarsely whispered words of Detective Markey, who was sitting close enough for Katie to be able to hear him, he had the face of a bulldog sucking piss from a stinging nettle. At last“ Buried
