Perhaps extreme danger strips us of all pretenses, all ambitions, all confusions, focusing us more intensely than we are otherwise ever focused, so that we remember what we otherwise spend most of our lives forgetting: that our nature and purpose is, more than anything else, to love and to make love, to take joy from the beauty of the world, to live with an awareness that the future is not as real a place for any of us as are the present and the past.

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.

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.
