Dan Brown Quotes

22 of the best book quotes from Dan Brown
  1. #1
    “The image on the page was that of a human corpse. The body had been stripped naked, and its head had been twisted, facing completely backward. On the victim’s chest was a terrible burn. The man had been branded...imprinted with a single word.”
  2. #2
    “Since the beginning of time, spirituality and religion have been called on to fill in the gaps that science did not understand.”
  3. #3
    “And yet remarkable solutions to seemingly impossible problems often occur in these moments of clarity. It’s what gurus call higher consciousness. Biologists call it altered states. Psychologists call it super-sentience. And Christians call it answered prayer. Sometimes, divine revelation simply means adjusting your brain to hear what your heart already knows.”
  4. #4
    “The rising and setting of the sun was once attributed to Helios and a flaming chariot. Earthquakes and tidal waves were the wrath of Poseidon. Science has now proven those gods to be false idols. Soon all gods will be proven to be false idols. Science has now provided answers to almost every question man can ask.”
  5. #5
    “Faith is universal. Our specific methods for understanding it are arbitrary. Some of us pray to Jesus, some of us go to Mecca, some of us study subatomic particles. In the end we are all just searching for truth, that which is greater than ourselves.”
  6. #6
    “We all benefit from a sense of contact with divinity... even if it is only imagined.”
  7. #7
    Robert Langdon: I’m academic. My mind tells me I will never understand God.
    Camerlengo: And your heart?
    Robert Langdon: Tells me I am not meant to. Faith is a gift that i am yet to receive.
  1. #8
    “Antimatter is highly unstable. Energetically speaking, antimatter is the mirror image of matter, so the two instantly cancel each other out if they come in contact. Keeping antimatter isolated from matter is a challenge, of course, because everything on earth is made of matter. The samples have to be stored without ever touching anything at all - even air.”
  2. #9
    “Then, with a reeling horror, she knew. Staring up at her from the floor, discarded like a piece of trash, was an eyeball. She would have recognized that shade of hazel anywhere.”
  3. #10
    “God answers all prayers, but sometimes his answer is ‘no’.”
  4. #11
    “Nothing captures human interest more than human tragedy.”
  5. #12
    “Our minds sometimes see what our hearts wish were true.”
  6. #13
    Camerlengo: So although you have the power to interfere and prevent your child’s pain, you would choose to show you love by letting him learn his own lessons?
    Chatrand: Of course. Pain is part of growing up. It’s how we learn.
    Camerlengo: Exactly.”
  7. #14
    “Skepticism has become a virtue. Cynicism and demand for proof has become enlightened thought. Is it any wonder that humans now feel more depressed and defeated than they have at any point in human history?”

    “If it wasn’t painfully difficult, you did it wrong!”
  3. #17
    Chatrand: Terrible things happen in this world. Human tragedy seems like proof that God could not possibly be both all-powerful and well-meaning. If He loves us and has the power to change our situation, He would prevent our pain, wouldn’t he?
    Camerlengo: Would He?
    Chatrand: Well... if God Loves us, and He can protect us, He would have to. It seems He is either omnipotent and uncaring, or benevolent and powerless to help.

    “The media is the right arm of anarchy.”
  5. #19
    “Each of us is now electronically connected to the globe, and yet we feel utterly alone.”
  6. #20
    “The most dangerous enemy is that which no one fears!”
  7. #21
    “But who is more ignorant? The man who cannot define lightning, or the man who does not respect its awesome power?”
  8. #22
    “Seek the goodness, become the goodness.”
