The Shining by Stephen King

“He would write it for the reason he felt that all great literature, fiction and nonfiction, was written: truth comes out, in the end it always comes out. He would write it because he felt he had to.”

“He supposed he was fascinated by that commonplace sense of history that anyone can feel glancing through the fresh news of ten or twenty years ago.”

“He understood a great many things about his parents, and he knew that many times they didn’t like his understandings and many other times refused to believe them. But someday they would have to believe.”

“The tears that heal are also the tears that scald and scourge.”

“When he came back to the world of real things, he was lying on the floor with beans and mashed potatoes on his lap and his mommy was holding him and crying and his daddy had been on the phone.”

“Sometimes human places, create inhuman monsters.”

“But see that you get on. That’s your job in this hard world, to keep your love alive and see that you get on, no matter what. Pull your act together and just go on.”

“Wendy? Darling? Light, of my life. I’m not gonna hurt ya. I’m just going to bash your brains in.”

“This inhuman place makes human monsters.”

“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.”

“Heeere’s Johnny!”
