Hiroshima does not look like a bombed city. It looks as if a monster steamroller had passed over it and squashed it out of existence.
My father was a monster. A monster! I cut with my family when I was 23 and I never see them again.
My work is therapeutic: 'Monster's Ball,' 'Woodsman' and 'Shadowboxer,' because I don't go to therapy, and I sort of live life through my films.
I don't want children. Why should I let some strange little monster into my life to destroy what to me is a perfect set-up?
I don't think that coming from a privileged background makes you this monster who doesn't feel things.
I've created such a monster.
You have to fight the green monster with your mind, not your fists.
That fame monster's a fool, man. It really is.
Marriage must incessantly contend with a monster that devours everything: familiarity.
Honore de Balzac
I can see every monster as they come in.
The jargon of sculptors is beyond me. I do not know precisely why I admire a green granite female, apparently pregnant monster with one eye going around a square corner.
I'm glad I brought this course, this monster, to its knees.
Nearly all monster stories depend for their success on Jack killing the Giant, Beowulf or St. George slaying the Dragon, Harry Potter triumphing over the basilisk. That is their inner grammar, and the whole shape of the story leads towards it.
A. N. Wilson

When I've written episodes of 'Doctor Who', when it comes to the monster chasing somebody, it's the Doctor and the companion, running down the corridor, being chased by a guy with a stick and a tennis ball on the end. Whereas, when I see the rushes of 'Being Human', we're actually looking at the werewolf, and it just looks real.
I have never seen a greater monster or miracle in the world than myself.
Michel de Montaigne
You have to be a brat in order to carve out your parameters, and you have to be a monster to anyone who gets in your way. But sometimes it's difficult to know when that's necessary and when you're just being a baby, throwing your rattle from the cage.
Paul Thomas Anderson

Nothing is poetical if plain daylight is not poetical; and no monster should amaze us if the normal man does not amaze.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
Obscenity, which is ever blasphemy against the divine beauty in life, is a monster for which the corruption of society forever brings forth new food, which it devours in secret.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
Applause is interesting, but I'm a monster with or without it. Something is either well written or it isn't. 'White Rabbit' is not well written, and no amount of applause or royalties can convince me it is. I could have done a better job with those lyrics. They didn't say what I wanted.
Richard Nixon was a criminally insane Monster - Bill Clinton is a black-hearted Swine of a friend.
Hunter S. Thompson
Martin Luther King, Jr.
