Basically, quotes with and about vampires…
I`ll start I guess. I`ve selected a few – I hope they were unknown to you – out of all the categories: books / movies / music.
“Awaken to darkness on this place we call Earth,
One vampire’s bite brings another one’s birth.
A vampire wakes with blood thirsty needs
On the warm rich sensation he feels when he feeds.
He stalks in the night like a disastrous beast,
And what once was alive will soon be deceased.
So when the last bit of sunlight disappears from the sky,
You better watch out unless you want to die.”
— Victoria Boatwright
“But first, on earth as Vampire sent,
Thy corpse shall from its tomb be rent:
Then ghastly haunt thy native place,
And suck the blood of all thy race;
There from thy daughter, sister, wife,
At midnight drain the stream of life;
Yet loathe the banquet which perforce
Must feed thy livid living corpse.
Thy victims are they yet expire
Shall know the demon for their sire,
As cursing thee, thou cursing them,
Thy flowers withered on the stem.”
— Lord Byron (Giaour)
“I never knew what life was until it ran out in a red gush over my lips, my hands!”
— Anne Rice, Interview with the Vampire
“Everyone knows the phenomenon of trying to hold your breath underwater – how at first it’s alright and you can handle it, and then as it gets closer and closer to the time when you must breathe, how urgent the need becomes, the lust and the hunger to breathe. And then the panic sets in when you begin to think that you won’t be able to breathe – and finally, when you take in air and the anxiety subsides…that’s what it’s like to be a vampire and need blood.”
—Francis Ford Coppola’s journal in “BS Dracula: The Film and the Legend”
