Whenever you say “creepy crawlies”, people get you’re talking about something to be avoided (even if they don’t speak English!). It sounds somewhat melodious, but gives you shivers down your spine. Don’t you shake your body when you hear “creepy crawlies”? Most people do as if shaking your body makes sure none of those creatures can get stuck on you.
Discover in this article, 25 Most Creepy Quotes and use them as food for thought.
“Most things we fear never happened, and most probably, never will.”
We are wired to shift our attention to creepy things and stay focused on them for hours. Why? Because looking at the bomb gives us the false sense of security “I’ll know when it explodes”… Very reassuring (this is a point where you can smile… Reassuring indeed).
Creepy things capture our attention because we believe that we can control what is going to happen. Sometimes you can control things, but sometimes you can’t.
Inspire yourself from these 25 Creepy Quotes so that you can wash off your mind of those creepy thoughts that keep you up at night.
Our mind doesn’t understand the meaning of the word “No”. It’s an abstract concept for which we can’t make relevant pictures in our mind. The only pictures you can make are some derivations from road signs, the spelling of the word, or human gestures. Beyond that, our mind has to rely on common sense and guess what does it “no” mean.
Why is this important to know? Because, as your mind can’t give an accurate representation of what means no, also it makes little difference between reality and imagination.
If you imagine, for example, something creepy, your body react as if that something is in front of you. Whatever you imagine happening it feels like it already happened.
That’s the reason why one of the most offered advice these days is “believe you can“. When you say “I can do this” (and genuinely mean it), you will do whatever it takes to make it real.
What are creepy thoughts?
They are those things that, when you hear about or see them, feel the need to shake them off quickly.
If you’re wondering if other creatures have creepy thought, just think about the look that your dog gives you seeing you collecting his poop. “What is this nutter doing with my s***? Is it valuable? Or maybe… oh, horrible… It must be poisonous.”
Are creepy things too serious to joke about? Nothing should be too serious to make a joke because being too serious takes away (momentarily) some of your intelligence.
Check this out! The following joke is considered the funniest in the world.
Two friends go hunting. Walking in the forest, suddenly, one of them knocks his head on a branch and passes out. The other one tries to wake him up with no success. Desperately, calls the emergency services.
“Please help! I think my friend is dead.”
“Come down, sir; I’ll help. Why do you think he’s dead? He’s not breathing?”
“I don’t know… He looks dead.”
“I can’t help you until I know, exactly what’s the situation. So, first let’s make sure he’s dead.”
“Just a minute…” followed by silence a few seconds and then a loud bang… And another bang.
“Now I know, he’s dead for sure. What do we do next?”
Even though the joke is creepy it made you laugh, right?
Whenever you have creepy thoughts about yourself or the future, allow yourself to laugh at them.
I’ll give you one last thing to think about before delivering to you the 25 Most Creepy Quotes as promised.
What you’re about to read is one of the creepiest things we do in life.

3. I’m alive but I have no life. I’m alive but also dead. I’m dead and alive. — Dean Koontz, Dead And Alive
Pink Floyd has put the idea of this quote into two simple words “Comfortably Numb”. Sometimes we go through life being in that state of mind (Comfortably Numb), forgetting that one of the most precious things we have in life is time.

This confession has meant nothing. — Bret Easton Ellis, American Psycho

Most of us have the luxury of a short memory. You cannot allow your memory to fail you if that’s jeopardizing your survival and prosperity.
When I was a teenager my father asked me “Do you believe in miracles?” My answer was “Yes, I do; it’s a miracle that we get every day safely at home.”
We lived in a quiet and peaceful town; and yet, I had the awareness that only one split second separates life from death.
If you have the feeling that life is too long, make an effort to change your environment and circumstances.

The jaws of sharks, a vultures wings
The rabid bite of the dogs of war,
The voice of one who went before,
But most of all the mirror’s gaze,
Which counts us out our numbered days.

Yes, there is a small minority of individuals (among us) which find it easy to hurt someone else. Luckily, for most of us, that’s inconceivable!

Would you like to know how to minimize the chances for that happening to you? Improve your social skills, and know that every time you’re doing something nice for others, you gain self-respect and positive thoughts.

I was simply imitating reality, a rough resemblance of a human being, with only a dim corner of my mind functioning. — Bret Easton Ellis, American Psycho
