Threatened Quotes

Image Quotes about Threatened




David Mamet - The popularity of disaster movies expresses a collective perception of a world threatened by irresistible and unforeseen forces which nevertheless are thwarted at the last moment. Their thinly veiled symbolic meaning might be translated thus: We are innocent of wrongdoing. We are attacked by unforeseeable forces come to harm us. We are, thus, innocent even of negligence. Though those forces are insuperable, chance will come to our aid and we shall emerge victorious.

Dean Koontz - He always threatened to kill us when I was a child, and I always thought he would do it; and I grew up, and he had, ... I mean there's was lots of violence, but it never came to the ultimate thing. And then you developed a certain guilt because you always thought your father was going to try to kill you and he never did and then you feel sort of guilty about it. Well, no matter what he is, no matter all the despicable things he's done, why would I have thought that way about him? He is my father.
