Favorite Mina Murray In Dracula Quotes

1. "Idag samlar vi skor och bilar, igår flintyxor. Utan tvivel har arkeologer funnit betydligt fler flintyxor än vad människan rimligtvis behövde. Jag tror att flintyxorna handlar om en längtan, kanske en rädsla. Om jag bara har tillräckligt många flintyxor, eller skor, eller ett nyrenoverat kök så kan inget ont hända. Det är den där dödsångesten igen. Den otäcka insikten att allt, allt, allt är förgängligt. Jag kommer att dö, men mina flintyxor kommer att finnas kvar. (Och de fanns ju kvar, eller hur? Men vad hjälper det?)"
Author: Ann Heberlein
2. "Even the great Van Helsing is not immune from these confusing and cloying vampiric attractions, ‘the fascination of the wanton Un-dead' (p. 393). But destroy the vampires though he and the other men indeed do in the end, it is Mina who remains the most important enabling factor for the defeat of Dracula, with the aid, of course, of what she calls ‘the wonderful power of money!' (p. 378). And the reason for this is her ambiguous sexuality. In her is to be found something"
Author: Bram Stoker
3. "The last I saw of Count Dracula was his kissing his hand to me, with a red light of triumph in his eyes, and with a smile that Judas in hell might be proud of."
Author: Bram Stoker
4. "So I heard on the news that the Tard died and your house burnt down. I bet secretly you're relieved you don't have to live with him anymore in that dump."The whole commotion in the hallway immediately stopped, as if her words had been spoken over the intercom. It became so quiet that you could hear Mina's and Nan's sharp intakes of breath. Mina wasn't prone to violence and was about to think of something mean to say back to Savannah, but she didn't have the chance to, because Nan Taylor, perky, happy-go-lucky Nan Taylor, pulled back her fist and punched Savannah in the face. Savannah wasn't prepared, and fell to the floor. Nan stood over her shocked face and yelled, "No way was he handicapped, or different. He was the most special, coolest and smartest kid ever. And the world is a much sadder place because he's not here. And don't you ever, EVER, insult him again!" Nan shook with anger.The hall was full of students and teachers, and one by one they started to clap."

5. "«... sabes, yo tenía una familia, un trabajo, algo siempre estaba en el medio, pero ahora vendí mi casa, encontré este lugar, un estudio amplio, deberías ver el espacio y la luz. Por primera vez en mi vida voy a tener el lugar y el tiempo para crear.»No nene, si vas a crear vas a crear trabajando 16 horas por día en una mina de carbón, o vas a crear en una piecita con tres chicos mientras estás desocupado, vas a crear aunque te falte parte de tu mente y de tu cuerpo,vas a crear ciego, mutilado, loco, vas a crear con un gato trepando por tu espalda mientras la ciudad entera tiembla en terremotos, bombardeos, inundaciones y fuego. Nene, aire, luz, tiempo y espacio no tienen nada que ver con esto y no crean nada... excepto quizás una vida más larga para encontrar nuevas excusas."
Author: Charles Bukowski
6. "Dr. Murray points to the Nazarite system as what he calls an external scaffolding supporting human efforts at righteousness, reminding the participant that he is set apart. Christ, he said, needed no external reminder that the Father was His joy and that wine was not, that He was Life and was wholly Other from death, that He bore on Himself the shame that long hair but vaguely pointed to."
Author: David Murray
7. "This is the whole point of technology. It creates an appetite for immortality on the one hand. It threatens universal extinction on the other. Technology is lust removed from nature. - Murray (WN 285)"
Author: Don DeLillo
8. "Imagine, Dracula a pawn in the hands of the infidel. I wasted no time there-I learned everything I could about them, so that I might surpass them all. That was when I vowed to make history, not to be its victim."
Author: Elizabeth Kostova
9. "I had to wonder, though, if there's something about a murderer, particularly a confident one, that gives him a certain charisma or charm that I, in particular, am susceptible to.I mean, there's a reason more women are attracted to Dracula than repelled by him.I made a resolution to myself. From now on, I'd assume that every man I was attracted to was a murderer until proven otherwise.Perhaps it wasn't the most promising strategy for starting a relationship, but I might live longer."
Author: Lee Goldberg
10. "Yes. I remember."His voice had deepened. I remember. Mina did, too, every conversation they'd had over breakfast, and it made her heart ache. Such a strange thing... She suddenly couldn't laugh anymore."
Author: Meljean Brook
11. "A blacksmith can go anywhere. A detective inspector only goes where the dead bodies are." "But there aren't any dead people here today." Mina glanced over her shoulder at the chest Newberry carried. "That's why I brought my own."
Author: Meljean Brook
12. "Whiteness is not a culture. There is Irish culture and Italian culture and American culture - the latter, as Albert Murray pointed out, a mixture of the Yankee, the Indian, and the Negro (with a pinch of ethnic salt); there is youth culture and drug culture and queer culture; but there is no such thing as white culture. Whiteness has nothing to do with culture and everything to do with social position. It is nothing but a reflection of privilege, and exists for no reason other than to defend it. Without the privileges attached to it, the white race would not exist, and the white skin would have no more social significance than big feet."
Author: Noel Ignatiev
13. "If Dracula can't see his reflection in a mirror, how come his hair is always so neatly combed?"
Author: Steven Wright

If you are happy in a dream, Ammu, does that count? Estha asked. "Does what count?" "The happiness does it count?". She knew exactly what he meant, her son with his spoiled puff.
