The Hunger (1997–2000)
Julian Priest: The highest spiritual plane available to humankind is not grace nor peace nor satisfaction. It is, of course, love.
Julian Priest: You can run to any country in the world -- or beyond -- and you'll find nothing new, nothing changed, you'll make no discoveries. For the only undiscovered country left to explore is inside you.
Julian Priest: The search for passion, feeling, love: it'll get you every time.
Julian Priest: Some fears are too great to be ignored, too relentless to flee. Sometimes there's no option but to turn and face your fears and see what happens.
Julian Priest: We see what we expect to see and feel what we expect to feel. And if we expect to be afraid then we will be afraid. But that's a fool's game. If you live your life in anticipation of doom and the certainty of it; if you know it'll find you and overwhelm you, why fight it?
