Lestat quotes

[At start and voice over] 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. [rock music starts] Better. It became worthwhile to rise again as new gods were born and worshipped. Night and day, they were never alone. I would become one of them. [feeds on pimp] Whether it was that first meal, or a hundred years of rest, I'm not sure. But suddenly I was feeling better than ever. My senses so high they led me straight to the instrument of my resurrection, playing in my old house.

We are the powerful, we are the immortal! We should walk fearless in the open!

From that moment on, they were my friends, my children, my band. Giving the world a new god... me.

Many times since then I've called for Marius, but there was no answer. Just the endless precession of days, months, years... My teacher left me to my darkest lesson, that in the end, we are alone, and there is nothing but the cold, dark wasteland of eternity.

After calling one stone tomb home sweet home for so long, I like to experience as much diversity as I can. Wouldn't you?

Maybe I'm trying to resurrect a few old friends with my words. Daring them to come out.

I impressed my maker with my thirst for things. He set out to educate me in the unknown. Taught me all about the world, its hidden history... and about myself

Humanity? (snort) We're murderers.

My senses run amok, like a newborn child. And as for my new powers,I was beside myself with the pleasure of it all...

But why must we hide, Marius? We are the powerful, we are the immortal. We should walk fearless in the open

The faces of my victims haunted me, rising behind my eyes, reminding me of my fate... I played for days trying to expel the last bit of my human feelings... and face the cold, dark wasteland of eternity...

Well, Talamascan, you're certainly a very clever librarian, aren't you?

How sad, you people always trying to know the unknowable... So, was it a good read? My diary.

Live and let live.

Come, let me show you what it means to live in the light.
