I would say this quote is very true :p :
"[...] for doubt and secrecy are the lure of lures, and no new horror can be more terrible than the daily torture of the commonplace.
H.P. Lovecraft
"Ex Oblivione"

I would say my all time favorite quote by Lovecraft is this! :p :

'The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piercing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age. [...]'
˜ H.P. Lovecraft

Do you know about the Lovecraft quote on the Iron Maiden album cover Live After Death?

Then there's this Metallica song:

And the HPL Historical Society http://www.hplhs.org/

. . . What was that big crashing noise I just heard?
