Good vs. Evil Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #1

But my very feelings changed to repulsion and terror when I saw the whole man slowly emerge from the window, and begin to crawl down the castle wall over that dreadful abyss, face down, with his cloak spreading out around him like great wings. (3.22)

This is one of the first hints Jonathan has that the Count isn't quite…human.

Quote #2

What manner of man is this, or what manner of creature is it in the semblance of a man? (3.23)

Jonathan might not know what, exactly, Dracula is, but it doesn't really matter. The fight against evil is so on!

Quote #3

At least God's mercy is better than that of these monsters, and the precipice is steep and high. At its foot a man may sleep – as a man. (4.70)

Here "God" is being directly contrasted with the monsters.
