Vampiric Quotes

Vampire Quotes!

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”

    Louis: It was pure hell. Each risk you take hurts me. But that is my concern and fault.
    Lestat: Why do you love me?
    Louis: You know, you’ve always known. I wish I could be you. I wish I could know the joy you know all the time.
    Lestat: And that pain, you want that as well?
    Louis: Your pain? Certainly. I’ll take your brand of pain anytime, as they say.
    Lestat: You smug, cynical lying bastard!”

    It is from Dark Prince: The true story of Dracula😉
    I just love the way it depicts the hate they felt for Vlad at the time of his life and how much some feared him and believed he`s not human just because he was so much more than anyone expected :X

  5. “Evil is a point of view. God kills indiscriminately and so shall we. For no creatures under God are as we are, none so like him as ourselves.”
    The line is from “Interview with a vampire”… what else could you expect from Lestat? An attitude worthy of a genuine vampire.

    “Damon: What’s so special about this Bella girl? And Edward is so whipped. I miss Anne Rice…she had it right.

    Louis: We belong in hell.
    Lestat: And what if there is no hell, or they don’t want us there? Ever think of that?
    Louis: But there was a hell, and no matter where we moved to, I was in it.

  9. The world changes, we do not, there lies the irony that finally kills us.
    Armand in “Interview with a vampire”

    I don’t know what it is about me that makes people think I want to hear their problems, maybe I smile to much, maybe I wear to much pink, but please remember, I can rip your throat out if I need to and know that I am not a hooker. That was a long, long time ago!

    Something more… spicy!😀 From Blade 1.

    Blade: OK, Vampire Anatomy 101, crosses and running water don’t do dick so forget what you’ve seen in the movies. You use a stake, silver or sunlight. You know how to use one of these?

    Blade: Safety’s off, round’s already chambered. Silver hollowpoint filled with garlic. You aim for the head or the heart. Anything else, is your ass…

  12. A little something from “Dracula”, the screening from 1992
    Van Helsing: She lives beyond the grace of God, a wanderer in the outer darkness. She is “vampyr”, “nosferatu”. These creatures do not die like the bee after the first sting, but instead grow strong and become immortal once infected by another nosferatu. So, my friends we fight not one beast but legions that go on age after age after age, feeding on the blood of the living.

  13. “There comes a time for every vampire when the idea of eternity becomes momentarily unbearable. Living in the shadows, feeding in the darkness with only your own company to keep, rots into a solitary, hollow existence. Immortality seems like a good idea, until you realize you’re going to spend it alone. So I went to sleep, hoping that the sounds of the passing eras would fade out, and a sort of death might happen. But as I lay there, the world didn’t sound like the place I had left, but something different.”

    The opening from “Queen of the damned”. You gotta love Stu as Lestat. YUMMY!!!!!

In time they (the demons) lost their purchase on this reality, and the way was made for the mortal animals. For Man. What remains of the Old Ones are vestiges: certain magics, certain creatures”

  21. Armand: They had forgotten the first lesson, that we are to be powerful, beautiful, and without regret.

    Armand: Louis, I swear that I…

    “I read that every known superstition in the world is gathered into the horseshoe of the Carpathians, as if it were the centre of some sort of imaginative whirlpool; if so my stay may be very interesting.”
    – Chap.2 – the journey

    “The fair girl went on her knees and bent over me, fairly gloating. There was a deliberate voluptuousness which was both thrilling and repulsive, and as she arched her neck she actually licked her lips like an animal… I could feel the soft, shivering touch of the lips on the supersensitive skin of my throat, and the hard dents of two sharp teeth, just touching and pausing there.”

  24. Selene: For six centuries I was a loyal soldier to the vampire clan. But I was betrayed. The war was not as it had seemed. In one night, the lies that had united our kind had been exposed. Kraven, our second-in-command, had formed a secret alliance with Lucian, leader of the werewolf clan, to overthrow Viktor, our leader. But Kraven’s lust for power and domination had failed. Viktor was not the savior I had been led to believe. He had betrayed us all. Soon, the hunt will be on for his killer. I have but one ally left: Michael, the human descendent of Corvinus. Neither vampire nor lycan, but a hybrid. It’s only a matter of time before we’re found. My only hope now is to awaken Markus, our last remaining elder, and expose the truth before Kraven tries to murder him while he’s still in hibernation. Kraven knows he’s no match for him awake.

    A little something from Underword Evolutions. 🙂 It`s the overvoice from the beginning 😀

  25. Availing herself of the privilege of her mask, she turned to me, and in the tone of an old friend, and calling me by my name, opened a conversation with me, which piqued my curiosity a good deal. She referred to many scenes where she had met me–at Court, and at distinguished houses. She alluded to little incidents which I had long ceased to think of, but which, I found, had only lain in abeyance in my memory, for they instantly started into life at her touch.

    “With his left hand he held both Mrs Harker’s hands, keeping them away with her arms at full tension; his right hand gripped her by the back of the neck, forcing her face down on his bosom.

    I’ve never seen Nosferatu, but I just wasn’t a fan of Lugosi’s Dracula. I found it kind of dull. I actually enjoy Interview with a Vampire the movie more than I like the novel. I like the next two books in the series a lot, but I was just never very crazy about Louis’s story. I really don’t mind that Armand is different (it’s just funny how different) but I can’t stand Antonio Banderas in the movie. He just annoys me.

  30. Tom Cruise is so goddamn crazy in that movie. That’s the best way I can put it. His laugh is excellent, and perfect nails for cruelty. I do remember what a big deal it was when he was announced as a cast member in Interview, but it turned out to be quite effective.
    Brad Pitt has this weird restrained warmth that I really like, that I don’t think I noticed until I was older, and I can totally read all the inner pain and turmoil with out him saying anything.
    Also Antonio kicks ass in that movie.
