Favorite Jekyll Quotes

1. "A year jammed full of adventure and misadventure, strides forward and many steps backward, another year in my topsy-turvy, Jekyll-and-Hyde existence."
Author: Anthony Kiedis
2. "Beyond love, beyond unrequited love, perhaps even beyond any other passion known to humanity, deep, deep in the depths of the turgid, clinging, swamplike pit of despair that lies dormant within every soul, lurks JEALOUSY. Jealousy, that most demeaning and debilitating of emotions. Jealousy, which can double the strength of the love upon which it is based, but whilst doubling it, warp and pervert it, untill it is no longer recognizable as the thing of beauty it once was. Jealous love is no more like true love than Mr Hyde was like Dr Jekyll or a stagnant swamp is like a freshwater lake."
Author: Ben Elton
3. "More than one side? You're Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Jackass!"
Author: Chuck Palahniuk
4. "First you try to find a reason, try to understand what you've done so wrong so you can be sure not to do it anymore. After that you look for signs of a Jekyll and Hyde situation, the good and the bad in a person sifted into separate compartments by some weird accident. Then, gradually, you realize that there isn't a reason, and it isn't two people you're dealing with, just one. The same one every time."
Author: Helen Oyeyemi

6. "The famed author Robert Lewis Stevenson declared that he'd trained his Brownies to be writers. As he slept, they would whisper fantastic plots in his ear -- for example, the strange case of Dr. Jekyll and the diabolical Mr. Hyde, and that episode in "Olalla" when a young man from an old Spanish family bites his sister's hand."
Author: Jorge Luis Borges
7. "And in every one of us, there's a war going on. It's a civil war. I don't care who you are, I don't care where you live, there is a civil war going on in your life. And every time you set out to be good, there's something pulling on you, telling you to be evil. It's going on in your life. Every time you set out to love, something keeps pulling on you, trying to get you to hate. Every time you set out to be kind and say nice things about people, something is pulling on you to be jealous and envious and to spread evil gossip about them. There's a civil war going on. There is a schizophrenia, as the psychologists or the psychiatrists would call it, going on within all of us. And there are times that all of us know somehow that there is a Mr. Hyde and a Dr. Jekyll in us...There's a tension at the heart of human nature. And whenever we set out to dream our dreams and to build our temples, we must be honest enough to recognize it."
Author: Martin Luther King Jr.
8. "Abandoned.The word alone sends shudders down a sensitive spine, troubling the thoughts of pained souls as their hurt swells in ripples. It is a sentence of undesired solitude often pronounced on the innocent, the trusting—administered without warning or satisfactory cause. One day the moon is yours, or so you believe. The next, his countenance transforms from Jekyll to Hyde with no intention of ever turning back, and you are left trampled upon in a deserted street, concealed by dirty fog that squelches all illumination or any hope for future rays of light. It is the worst of mysteries why a beast considered noble would forsake his duty, exhibiting a heart of stone. And all who once looked on him, now turn down their eyes and suffer, beguiled. Some poisons have no antidote, but are slow, silent, torturous ends that curl up the broken body swept into a cold, dark corner. There she is left to drown in her tears—a dying heart.Abandoned."
Author: Richelle E. Goodrich
9. "Jekyll provava per Hyde un interesse superiore a quello che i padri provano per i figli, mentre Hyde provava un'indifferenza nei suoi confronti più forte di quella che i figli provano per i padri."
Author: Robert Louis Stevenson
10. "No fue difícil de convertirse en Mr Hyde pero eso fue difícil de convertirse en Dr Jekyll otra vez. El bien y la maldad luchaban en mi cuerpo humano. Tuve que tomar una decisión."
Author: Robert Louis Stevenson
11. "Here then, as I lay down the pen and proceed to seal up my confession, I bring the life of that unhappy Henry Jekyll to an end."
Author: Robert Louis Stevenson
12. "Zla czastka natury, wyzwolona obecnie i sprawujaca wladze byla cielesnie slabsza i gorzej rozwinieta niz dobra, która odtracilem. Zarazem jednak mniej utrudzila sie i wyczerpala, gdyz dotychczas dziewiec dziesiatych zycia poswiecalem przeciez pracy, cnocie i swiadomemu, poddanemu rygorom obowiazku dzialaniu. Dlatego wlasnie Edward Hyde byl znacznie nizszy, szczuplejszy i mlodszy niz Henryk Jekyll. Jedna twarz rozjasnial blask wewnetrznego swiatla, na drugiej mroki zla wyryly glebokie pietno. Ponadto zlo (mimo wszystko slabsze w czlowieku niz dobro) znieksztalcilo i jak gdyby okaleczylo cala postac swojego wcielenia."
Author: Robert Louis Stevenson
13. "But that in case of Dr. Jekyll's "disappearance or unexplained absence for any period exceeding three calendar months," the said Edward Hyde should step into the said Henry Jekyll's shoes without further delay and free from any burthen or obligation beyond the payment of a few small sums to the members of the doctor's household"
Author: Robert Louis Stevenson

Author: Robert Louis Stevenson
15. "O my poor old Harry Jekyll, if ever I read Satan's signature upon a face, it is on that of your new friend."
Author: Robert Louis Stevenson
16. "O God!' I screamed, and 'O God!' again and again; for there before my eyes--pale and shaken, and half fainting, and groping before him with his hands, like a man restored from death--there stood Henry Jekyll!"
Author: Robert Louis Stevenson
17. "I swear to God I will never set eyes on him again. I bind my honour to you that I am done with him in this world. It is all at an end. And indeed he does not want my help; you do not know him as I do; he is safe, he is quite safe; mark my words, he will never more be heard of. ~Jekyll"
Author: Robert Louis Stevenson
18. "I am painfully situated, Utterson; my position is a very strange--a very strange one. It is one of those affairs that cannot be mended by talking. ~Jekyll"
Author: Robert Louis Stevenson
19. "The dismal quarter of Soho seen under these changing glimpses, with its muddy ways, and slatternly passengers, and its lamps, which had never been extinguished or had been kindled afresh to combat this mournful re-invasion of darkness, seemed, in the lawyer's eyes, like a district of some city in a nightmare. (The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde)"
Author: Robert Louis Stevenson
20. "There's a Mr. Hyde for every happy Jekyll face, a dark face on the other side of the mirror."
Author: Stephen King
21. "You put me through hell. On purpose. Made me suffer. And there's no end in sight. I don't know what the fuck you're doing, ace, but this Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde shit ain't cutting it with me."
Author: Sylvia Day

Today's Quote

It's about waking up. A child wakes up over and over again, and notices that she's living. She dreams along, loving the exuberant lifeof the senses, in love with beauty and power, oblivious to herself -- and then suddenly, bingo, she wakes up and feels herself alive. She notices her own awareness. And she notices that she is set down here, mysteriously, in a going world."
Author: Annie Dillard
