Paranoia Quotations

There is no such thing as paranoia. Your worst fears can come true at any moment.
Hunter S. Thompson

Sometimes paranoia's just having all the facts.
William S. Burroughs

There's an overwhelming sense of paranoia in the suburbs. People there seem so much more paranoid to me than people in the city about their kids being kidnapped or their parties being raided or their drinks being spiked. There's a kind of hysteria about that.
Meg Rosoff

Environmentalists should like fracking for its relative cleanliness. But they don't. They have made a bugaboo out of the chemicals in fracking fluids, which supposedly can leach into groundwater sources. I'm convinced they're dead wrong. Ultimately, good technology with a cost advantage will win out over paranoia.
Kenneth Fisher
