Suspense Quotes

Even cowards can endure hardship; only the brave can endure suspense.

Mignon McLaughlin

We all live in suspense from day to day In other words, you are the hero of your own story.

Mary McCarthy

Show me a character whose life arouses my curiosity, and my flesh begins crawling with suspense.

Fawn McKay Brodie

Perhaps a better title for The Da Vinci Code might be Much Ado About Nothing. When you boil away the hype and hysteria, all that remains is a pedestrian murder mystery that isn't sufficiently challenging or scandalous to raise anyone's hackles. It's preposterous, overlong, and saddled with a sloppy denouement that defines the term "anti-climax." The film's two big "surprises" are telegraphed early, and the ease with which they can be guessed (using the "conservation of characters" process) leeches the movie of a large measure of its suspense. Individual scenes are entertaining in their own right, but the production as a whole is a lumbering mess.

James Berardinelli

I like to compare the holiday season with the way a child listens to a favorite story. The pleasure is in the familiar way the story begins, the anticipation of familiar turns it takes, the familiar moments of suspense, and the familiar climax and ending.

Fred Rogers

Suspense is worst than disappointment.

Robert Burns

I think fashion is about suspense and surprise and fantasy. It’s not about rules.

Wolfgang Joop

This suspense is terrible. I hope it will last.

Oscar Wilde
