Anthony Storr
The war on terror, if this is a war on terror, can only be won by a sincere regional and international cooperation. All have to believe they have something at stake and work together. In the absence of this it will become political and interest-oriented.

Yitzhak Rabin
I’ve had one experience of writer’s block in my life, and it was living hell. It was a terror for me.

Asif Ali Zardari
If you want to conduct terror against Israelis, which is unacceptable, send fighters to do it. Don’t send your women and children.

James Comey
There is no link between the terror attacks of Daesh and the dress of a woman on the beach.

Christopher Buckley
Terror works by surprise.

Ariel Sharon
The greats are ‘The Shining’, ‘Rosemary’s Baby’, ‘Don’t Look Now’, ‘The Exorcist’ – those movies were not really slashers: they were about psychological terror and had very deep emotional backdrops. If we do our best, ‘6 Miranda Drive’ can be that kind of a movie.

Among the old Norse, it was the custom for certain warriors to dress in the skins of the beasts they had slain, and thus to give themselves an air of ferocity, calculated to strike terror into the hearts of their foes.
Sabine Baring-Gould
In many regions, war and terror prevail. States disintegrate. For many years, we have read about this. We have heard about it. We have seen it on TV. But we had not yet sufficiently understood that what happens in Aleppo and Mosul can affect Essen or Stuttgart. We have to face that now.
Angela Merkel
True enough, Osama bin Laden is dead and other al-Qaeda leaders have joined him. But, the assassination of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in Benghazi is a brutal reminder that radical Islamic terror groups have not disappeared and certainly are not dormant.
Bob Beauprez
The period that directly follows the dissolution of a long term relationship is extremely volatile, with emotions running the gamut from misery to elation to relief to terror.
Emily V. Gordon
Going to school was an absolute terror for me for, like, a decade.
Jonathan Van Ness
They do believe that if we do not wage this war against terror in places like Baghdad and Kabul, we are more likely to have it waged in Baltimore and Kansas.
Ed Gillespie
What we think of as our sensitivity is only the higher evolution of terror in a poor dumb beast. We suffer for nothing. Our own death wish is our only real tragedy.
Mario Puzo
The terror of figuring out a new genre, of telling a new story, is what makes the job exciting, keeps me from getting bored, and I assume it keeps whoever follows my work from getting bored as well.
Colson Whitehead
I like to be in waiting rooms with people as they’re auditioning, because their terror calms me.
John C. McGinley
Not one of the 9/11 terrorists entered through Mexico – and yet Mexicans bore the brunt of this country’s immigration response to the terror attacks.
Beto O’Rourke
The first time I got up in front of an audience was terror, abject terror, which continued for another four or five years. There still is, a little bit.
Bob Newhart
Do not forget that the Arab countries, starting with Algeria and Egypt, are the ones that have paid the heaviest toll because of Islamic terror.
Omar Bongo
If citizens and those in the communities where Islamic terror festers are willing to take the risk of engaging and reporting suspicions, authorities have an absolute obligation to take their concerns seriously.
Katie Pavlich
If you’re a Muslim and you love America and freedom and you hate terror, stay here and help us win and make a future together. We want you.
William J. Clinton
I truly believe that when the history books are written, our age will be remembered for three things: the war on terror, the digital revolution, and what we did – or did not do – to put the fire out in Africa. History, like God, is watching what we do.
Iraq and Afghanistan will, over time, become stable. But the War on Terror will continue long after Iraq and Afghanistan have had success in standing up their own governments.
Peter Pace
We have adopted a multi-pronged strategy against the attempts to radicalise the youth of the country. On the one hand, we have successfully de-radicalised our youth, and on the other hand, our security agencies have also taken action against certain individuals for their links and association with terror organisations.
Rajnath Singh
The paradoxical War on Terror is based on a kind of willed stupidity; the willed stupidity of wishful thinking. Only the logic of dreamwork can suture ‘War’ with ‘Terror’ in this way, since terrorists were, by classical definition, those without ‘legitimate authority’ to wage war.
Mark Fisher
Every film can be fun, even if it’s a terror.
Steve Guttenberg
When my grandpa was moved to physical action, you felt utter terror.
Liev Schreiber
Enough of this occupation, terror and abuse. We are not in need of your help. We are able to combat and defeat terrorism, and achieve unity. We are not in need of your bases, your experience and etc.
Muqtada al Sadr
So I think that our foreign policy, the president’s strong and principled leadership when it comes to the war against terror and foreign policy is going to be an asset.
Ed Gillespie
The difference between political terror and ordinary crime becomes clear during the change of regimes, in which former terrorists become well-regarded representatives of their country.
Jurgen Habermas
People only talk about what a joyous experience it is, but there is terror: Your life, as you know it, is over. It’s over the day that child is born. It’s over, and something completely new starts.
Bill Murray
There’s nothing like the vast, dark Atlantic to remind you of your mortality. But terror can also be exhilarating.
Sarah Hall
Israel was born under the British mandate. We learned from the British what democracy means, and how it behaves in a time of danger, war and terror. We thank Britain for introducing freedom and respect of human rights both in normal and demanding circumstances.
Shimon Peres
Either we destroy world terror or world terror will destroy us.
Ehud Barak
I like to deal with EVERY aspect of our condition, and that means terror and humor in equal mix. Some books have more room for humor than others.
Dean Koontz
Right now, there is no way that the federal government can prevent someone who’s on the terror watch list from buying a gun – none.
Ted Deutch
I’ve never experienced complete terror, knock on wood, or running for my life or any of that.
Maika Monroe
All terror groups are bad, and we shall fight them all.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan
And the terror itself is an example of the world’s uncontrollability.
Ulrich Beck
We are concerned that Germany, which has protected the PKK and DHKP-C for years, has become the backyard of the Gulenist terror organisation.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan
I can’t separate the fight with terrorism and the fight against global warming. These are two big global challenges we have to face up to because we have to leave our children more than a world free of terror; we also owe them a planet protected from catastrophes.
Francois Hollande
History is replete with ideologies of freedom, justice, liberation of the downtrodden and the exploited, that have been turned against the very people they had mobilised, or that have reproduced the same logic of exclusion and terror toward those whom they claimed to set free.
Tariq Ramadan
The aspiring tyrants of today have not forgotten the lesson of 1933: that acts of terror – real or fake, provoked or accidental – can provide the occasion to deal a death blow to democracy.
Timothy D. Snyder
The amount of death terror experienced is closely related to the amount of life unlived.
Irvin D. Yalom
When I look back at many of the moments of wonder, awe, or terror that I’ve got from science fiction, it’s often been because I’ve been put in the head of one of the characters.
Alastair Reynolds
In fighting terror, you cannot let it interfere with the normal life of civilians in Israel.
Yitzhak Rabin
It has been rightly said that nothing is unimportant, nothing powerless in the universe; a single atom can dissolve everything, and save everything! What terror! There lies the eternal distinction between good and evil.
Gerard De Nerval
Key to America’s success in ending the War on Terror will be a continued partnership with one of our most important allies – Israel.
Ronny Jackson
Israel has many hopes, and faces extreme dangers. The most prominent danger is Iran, which is making every effort to acquire nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles, and establishing an enormous terror network together with Syria in Lebanon.
Ariel Sharon
Again and again since 9/11, terror attacks in the West have been carried out by second-generation Muslims who are citizens of the very country they are attacking.
Peter Bergen
We cannot let fear and terror dictate how we live our lives, no matter what. Life is a blessing with an expiration date, and we must embrace it while we can.
Carmen Carrera
Pakistan is not about to crack down on terror groups or cut its military budget in order to build roads, schools and hospitals.
Stephen Kinzer
Terror is terror is terror, and it doesn’t matter what nationality that terror belongs to.
Reuven Rivlin
I worked for George Bush. I’m proud to have worked for him. I think that a lot of the most controversial things we did, that people didn’t like and – and criticized us for, things like the terror surveillance program or the enhanced interrogation techniques, were things that allowed us to save lives.
Dick Cheney
All Canadians stand together united against any forms of violence, terror against Canadians, and, in fact, against anyone around the world.
Jagmeet Singh
Global terror does not respect national boundaries.
Vikas Swarup
There is no good terror and bad terror. Terror is terror. There’s not terror that you can accept and terror that you cannot accept. Terror is terror. Murder is murder.
Ariel Sharon
I shall support the law, for the law gentlemen, is the firm and solid basis of civil society, the guardian of liberty, the protection of the innocent, the terror of the guilty, and the scourge of the wicked.
Charles Lawrence
One of the downsides of working in antiquity is that you don’t have many female voices, but you certainly have a lot of male terror about the potential of women’s power. It shows you very clearly that the most oppressive cultures tend to be afraid of those whom they oppress.
Mary Beard
Why did the Pakistani military attack us on behalf of JeM? You not only keep JeM on your soil but fund them, and when the victim country retaliates, you attack it on the terror outfit’s behalf.
Sushma Swaraj
Imprisoned by its war on terror framework, the Bush administration supported Israel in a disastrous war against Hezbollah in Lebanon in the summer of 2006.
Peter Bergen
If a work of art is rich and vital and complete, those who have artistic instincts will see its beauty, and those to whom ethics appeal more strongly than aesthetics will see its moral lesson. It will fill the cowardly with terror, and the unclean will see in it their own shame.
Oscar Wilde
‘Cartel Land’ explores what happens when – in a Mexican society without order, law or security – vendettas, terror, and corruption go hand in hand with the pursuit of a better world.
Matthew Heineman
Books and all forms of writing are terror to those who wish to suppress the truth.
Wole Soyinka
Being a writer can be a very lonely profession, but having a network of people who can sympathize with everything you’re going through – from contract issues to the terror of changing your novel from past- to present-tense – is an invaluable asset.
Lisa Graff
So it’s sheer terror, but then, this is the whole reason that we went so long to Doctor Simons, was to get rid of all these… mixed feelings that we had.
Betty Hill
From the age of about five to twelve I was very bad, a hideous little terror who beat people up. I was a member of the Rough Gang – we went around and terrorized all the pupils in school.
Joseph Fiennes
Terror will crash down on us if we fail to understand that a pluralistic society requires the personal and daily commitment of every citizen.
Tariq Ramadan
Unfortunately, terror is now linked to immigration, and anyone with dark skin or a beard or a Muslim name is suspect. Russia, France, then the United Kingdom, and now even Germany have no qualms about going far beyond their borders to strike at the enemies of their countries.
P. Chidambaram
Unity is the most important thing on the road to stamping out terror. You need global rules of law and order, and they have to be enforced. Start with that principle.
Chris Matthews
War in Africa is hardly a new phenomenon, nor are voices telling its stories of terror and triumph. Yet some of the continent’s most devastating conflicts – and the literature born from the experiences of their survivors – have often gone unnoticed in the West.
Uzodinma Iweala
There is a difficulty in combating the type of terror that is perpetrated by groups of radical Jews. It’s terror from within, and it is difficult to bring these perpetrators to justice; we need to create tools in order to combat this style of terrorism.
Reuven Rivlin
Freud was a hero. He descended to the Underworld and met there stark terrors. He carried with him his theory as a Medusa’s head which turned these terrors to stone.
R. D. Laing
Demoralize the enemy from within by surprise, terror, sabotage, assassination. This is the war of the future.
Adolf Hitler
How do I confront aging? With a wonder and a terror. Yeah, I’ll say that. Wonder and terror.
Keanu Reeves
Being scared by a movie offers a safe catharsis, because the terror is confined to the screen. It’s an adrenalin spike, and when I come back down, I feel a bit more leveled.
Laura van den Berg
Some have argued that confronting the threat from Iraq could detract from the war against terror. To the contrary, confronting the threat posed by Iraq is crucial to winning the war on terror.
George W. Bush
When I was a kid, I read books that made me laugh but also made me shiver in terror. I wanted to make books that made other people feel the same way.
Bruce Coville
That is why we wholeheartedly support the American-led effort to free the people of Iraq. And though we are a small country with a small military, we are proud to stand side by side with our allies in the fight to end the reign of terror in Baghdad.
Fatos Nano
We take nothing to the grave with us, but a good or evil conscience… It is true, terrors of conscience cast us down; and yet without terrors of conscience we cannot be raised up again.
Samuel Rutherford
The U.S. is friends with dictatorial regimes, then invades places like Iraq and Afghanistan, and what happens afterwards is a catastrophe. In the place of their leaders, fundamentalist movements that use the name of Islam spring up, and all that’s left is terror and bloodshed.
Ayman Odeh
The prospect of success in achieving our most cherished dream is not without its terrors. Who is more deprived and alone than the man who has achieved his dream?
Brendan Behan
Congress has a responsibility to make sure our taxpayer dollars are being spent responsibly and effectively, and at the same time, that our men and women in uniform have everything they need to carry out the War on Terror.
Larry Craig
In a repressive society, a writer can be deeply influential, but in a society that’s filled with glut and repetition and endless consumption, the act of terror may be the only meaningful act.
Don DeLillo
I have a pathological terror of falling through ice. I nearly drowned once. I fell off a boat and got a cramp, and was rescued by an oil-rig diver, a great bear of a man who simply leant into the water and scooped me out with one finger.
Jeremy Clarkson
When I was up in New York, the first record my parents bought me was the Terror Squad record with ‘Lean Back.’
Post Malone
Let there be no doubt: we will be tough on terror wherever it strikes.
Amber Rudd
But the war on terror as I have repeatedly said in the past, and the Afghan people believe in it, in truth, is that the war on terror is not in the Afghan villages or homes. Its in the sanctuaries, it is in the training grounds, its in the motivation factors and the money that comes to it.
Hamid Karzai
With our Reserve and Guard units playing increasingly important roles in the war on terror and in Iraq, it is unacceptable to make them jump through any unnecessary hurdles.
Pat Roberts
People’s imagination is the most effective tool in creating terror or dread.
Matt Reeves
I make and watch and think about YouTube for a living. So, when YouTube is launching a new feature I might have any emotion ranging from Christmas-morning enthusiasm to utter terror.
Hank Green
‘Blue Velvet’ changed my life forever. It was like I’d always read Chaucer and suddenly discovered Charles Bukowski. It made me understand that there is poetry of sublime ecstasy and dark terror, and it spoke to a side of me that hadn’t been reached before.
Joe Wright
Seventy years ago this November, Vladimir Lenin created the modern totalitarian state, transforming simpler forms of tyranny into history’s most sophisticated apparatus of rule by terror.
Michael Johns
We cannot win this war on terror if people are undercutting us. And one way to undercut us is to empower Iran.
Lindsey Graham
The liberation of Iraq is a crucial advance in the campaign against terror.
Carl Levin
I’ve wanted to act since I was seven. The year before, I’d been a munchkin in ‘The Wizard of Oz’ and was overcome with terror. The next year I just watched. My sister was in ‘The Little Mermaid’ and I had this deep knowing that I needed to be there on stage, not in the audience.
Sian Clifford
On September 11 2001, America felt its vulnerability even to threats that gather on the other side of the Earth. We resolved then, and we are resolved today, to confront every threat from any source that could bring sudden terror and suffering to America.
George W. Bush
Cosmic terror appears as an ingredient of the earliest folklore of all races and is crystallised in the most archaic ballads, chronicles, and sacred writings.
H. P. Lovecraft
The author of McCarthyism was given the distinction of addressing the Republican National Convention. This strikes terror in the hearts of honest men.
Emanuel Celler
Is the Iranian record of intervention and terror worse than that of the U.S.?
Noam Chomsky
I cannot give a single concert at which I do not play one piece after the other in an agony of terror because my memory threatens to fail me. This fear torments me for days beforehand.
Clara Schumann
Biography is one of the new terrors of death.
John Arbuthnot
Can a democratic nation fight a War on Terror and at the same time bend over backward so as not to offend a few visitors’ rights?
Annie Jacobsen
Terrorists do not engage in terror attacks because they are strong. They engage in these attacks because they are weak.
Bret Weinstein
This is an unprecedented pace of terror in modern times. And so, to say they’re on the run absolutely defies reality.
Michael McCaul
It’s not scary to make a horror film because you get to pull back the curtain and see that none of it’s real. When you’re watching one, the terror bombards you.
Josh Hartnett
Terror can never be defeated by force alone.
Charles Kennedy
Nobody would think that anybody on a terror watch list should have a gun, right?
Rick Scott
A Palestinian state will never be created by terror.
Elliott Abrams
For years, the Bush Administration eviscerated all the military and legal structures that were designed to separate the innocent from the guilty in the ‘Global War on Terror.’
Alex Gibney
Pakistan is both an ally in the war on terror, and in some sense, a battleground of the war on terror.
Stephen Hadley
Radical Islamist terror is a crime against the entire free world, including against Israel.
Tzipi Livni
I am not striking any note. I am just putting the facts before the people, that it is the Pakistan Army which is spreading terror in India, sending terrorists to Punjab, and I won’t stand for it.
Amarinder Singh
I believe the war on terror is the vital discussion of this decade and of our generation, probably. To win the war on terror, you need a good offense and a good defense. On defense, I regret to say, basically, this administration has not come close to doing what is necessary.
Chuck Schumer
The disagreeable reality for those who believe in human rights is that there are some occasions – and Iraq may be one of them – when war is the only real remedy for regimes that live by terror.
Michael Ignatieff
The risk of a terrorist victory is greater when in fighting terror, democracy betrays its own essence.
Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero
Poe had this curious kind of alchemical courage, where he took all the terrible things and terrors that happened in his life, all this shame and fear and pain, and turned them into great works of art. He was a complex, brilliant person who was just wired too tight.
John Cusack
