Stoker Quotes

by Charlotte Reads Classics

“Suddenly I became conscious of the fact that the driver was in the act of pulling up the horses in the courtyard of a vast ruined castle, from whose tall black windows came no ray of light, and whose broken battlements showed a jagged line against the moonlit sky.”

“Before the sun dipped below the black mass of Kettleness, standing boldly athwart the western sky, its downward way was marked by myriad clouds of every sunset colour – flame, purple, pink, green, violet, and all the tints of gold…”

“Masses of sea-fog came drifting inland – white, wet clouds, which swept by in ghostly fashion, so dank and damp and cold that it needed but little effort of imagination to think that the spirits of those lost at sea were touching their living bretheren with the clammy hands of death, and many a one shuddered as the wreaths of sea-mist swept by.”

Bram Stoker, Dracula
