Liberty Hardy Happy birthday, Stephen King! He has been publishing books for over four decades now, which is a lot of time to learn and grow wiser.
And along his journey, he has been kind enough to share that wisdom with his readers. Here are 70 great Stephen King quotes in which he shares smart thoughts and hard truths. They live inside of us, and sometimes, they win.
Every moral precept is a delusion. Even the stars are a mirage. The truth is darkness, and the only thing that matters is making a statement before one enters it.
Cutting the skin of the world and leaving a scar. No one ever does, in spite of what the stories may say. They had their good days, as you do, and they had their bad days, and you know about those.
