American Horror Story Season 4 centers on the final freak show in America. It will take place in 1952 and feature Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, Angela Bassett and Frances Conroy.

American Horror Story Quotes

Fate. Destiny. Luck. The prisons of man. People pass the time, enjoying the choices life provides--coffee or tea, right or left--as if it matters. We are all just spinning on the wheel. There is but one way to keep off the wheel. It's not youth. It's not beauty or true love. I know how to stay off the wheel. I control my fate. I have survived because I know one must be willing to destroy anyone, anything, even the ones you love, to keep the gods in check.

Who's the strong man now?
