„Stručně řečeno - nelze najít žádnou standardní posmrtnou realitu.
Vyprávěl jsem ti své zážitky. Tvé budou zase jiné. Jedním si však můžeš být jistý.
Tato chvíle nadejde i pro tebe.-Jak přicházejí sny“

„Normalita je pojmem většiny, standardem mnoha, nikoli standardem jediného člověka.“


„That which you believe becomes your world.“ What Dreams May Come

„Heaven would never be heaven without you.“ What Dreams May Come

„Thank you... for gracing my life with your lovely presence, for adding the sweet measure of your soul to my existence.“ What Dreams May Come

„Full circle. A new terror born in death, a new superstition entering the unassailable fortress of forever. I am legend.“ I Am Legend

„Let this hell be our heaven.“ What Dreams May Come

„…They think of suicide as a quick route to oblivion, an escape. Far from it. It merely alters a person from one form to another. Nothing can destroy the spirit. Suicide only precipitates a darker continuation of the same conditions from which escape was sought. A condition under circumstances so much more painful.“ What Dreams May Come


„What condemnation could possibly be more harsh than one’s own, when self-pretense is no longer possible?“ What Dreams May Come

„We've forgotten much. How to struggle, how to rise to dizzy heights and sink to unparalleled depths. We no longer aspire to anything. Even the finer shades of despair are lost to us. We've ceased to be runners. We plod from structure to conveyance to employment and back again. We live within the boundaries that science has determined for us. The measuring stick is short and sweet. The full gamut of life is a brief, shadowy continuum that runs from gray to more gray. The rainbow is bleached. We hardly know how to doubt anymore. (“The Thing”)“ Collected Stories, Vol. 1

„Chris Nielsen: Thank you for every kindness. Thank you for our children. For the first time I saw them. Thank you for being someone I was always proud to be with. For your guts, for your sweetness. For how you always looked, for how I always wanted to touch you. God, you were my life. I apologize for everytime I ever failed you. Especially this one...“ What Dreams May Come

„After a while, though, even the deepest sorrow faltered, even the most penetrating despair lost its scalpel edge.“ I Am Legend and Other Stories


„All of us have a path to follow and the path begins on earth.“ What Dreams May Come

„If men only felt about death as they do about sleep, all terrors would cease... Men sleep contentedly, assured that they will wake the following morning. They should feel the same about their lives.“ What Dreams May Come

„Chris:I forgive you.
Annie: For killing my children and my sweet husband?
Chris: For being so wonderful a guy would choose hell over heaven just to be around you.“
What Dreams May Come

„The man of my dreams is almost faded now. The one I have created in my mind. The sort of man each woman dreams of in her most secret and deepest part of her heart. I could almost see him now before me. What would I say to him if he were really here? Forgive me, I've never known this feeling. I've lived without it all my life. Is it any wonder that I fail to recognize it? You brought it to me for the first time. Is there any way I can tell you how my life has changed? Anyway at all, to let you know what sweetness you have given me? There's so much to say-- and I can't find the words-- except for these... I love you. That is what I would say to him if he were really here.“
