Man’s enemies are not demons, but human beings like himself.

Lao Tzu

“Men who fear demons see demons everywhere.”

 Brom, The Child Thief

Music, I think, is best when it honestly explores personal demons, and it stirs around in the silt of the psyche to find out what’s really there.

Tom Morello

A hug a day keeps the demons at bay.


I don’t know. People always think that there has got to be a dark side to everyone, a closet with skeletons, demons under the bed. People think all kinds of things about one another. They feel compelled to make up fears and false assumptions about their closest friends. Truth is, I’ll never know all there is to know about you just as you will never know all there is to know about me. Humans are by nature too complicated to be understood fully. So, we can choose either to approach our fellow human beings with suspicion or to approach them with an open mind, a dash of optimism and a great deal of candour.

Tom Hanks

We all have inner demons to fight. We call these demons ‘fear’, and ‘hatred’, and ‘anger’. If you don’t conquer them, then a life of a hundred years… is a tragedy. If you do, a life of a single day can be a triumph.
