“Now listen to me carefully. You are never…”

“Now listen to me carefully. You are never to leave this house without my permission. Your only justification for crawling on this Earth is to serve me. Understand me well: if you ever dare to disobey, I will slice into your chest and pull your worthless life out.”
–Blacula/Prince Mamuwalde (played by William Marshall)

I’ve been working, from time to time, on a book of quotations for many years.  I call it, “The Mind Boggles”, from one of my favorite quotations.  I do source quotations a bit differently from a lot of people.  In the case of a work of a fiction, I consider that the character said the line…not the author.  As a bit of an author myself (in a minor way), I can tell you…my characters definitely say things that I would never say.  These are all quotations that I’ve collected myself: I’ve read the book, seen the TV episode, and so on.

Hope you enjoy them!
