PostSubject: Re: Favorite Quotes   Sun May 25, 2008 4:20 pm

Here are two of mine: "At that moment, we were just in front of the high altar; and the moonbeams fell straight upon us through the stained-glass windows of the apse. As I did not let go of the cloak, the shadow turned round; and I saw a terrible death's head, which darted a look at me from a pair of scorching eyes. I felt as if I were face to face with Satan; and, in the presence of this unearthly apparition, my heart gave way, my courage failed me...and I remember nothing more until I recovered consciousness at the Setting Sun." I like this creepy description of Erik--it still sends shivers down my spine! affraid

And this one: "At last, Jammes, flinging herself upon the farthest corner of the wall, with every mark of real terror on her face, whispered: "Listen!" Everybody seemed to hear a rustling outside the door. There was no sound of footsteps. It was like light silk sliding over a panel. Then it stopped." Ghostly! Very Happy I love it! Twisted Evil

One of my favorites is when Erik tells Christine, "I'm still your faithful dog, ready to die for you." It's heartbreaking how much he loves her, but can't be with her.

Here's another, "Oh, the first time I saw him...I thought he was going to die."

"Why? Because I'd seen him."

So sad!

That was a good one.

Here's another catchy one: "If, in two minutes, mademoiselle, you have not turned the scorpion,
I shall turn the grasshopper...and the grasshopper, I tell you,
hops jolly high!"

That is scary evil!

Here's another favorite:

'The Opera ghost really existed.'

'Yes, he existed in flesh and blood, although he assumed the complete appearance of a real phantom; that is to say, of a spectral shade.'

This was delicious!

"Look! You want to see! See! feast your eyes on Erik's ugliness! Look at Erik's face! Now you know the face of the voice! You were not content to hear me, eh? You wanted to know what I looked like! Oh, you women are so inquisitive! Well, are you satisfied? I'm a very good-looking fellow, eh?"


that prevented me from being nosy for quite some time silent

One of my favorite quotes is:
"He had a heart great enough to hold the empire of the world, and in the end he had to be content with a cellar."

Here's one that made me laugh:
"Ah, yes, the chandelier...I can tell you. I didn't make the chandelier fall. It was badly worn."

From his shoulders hung an immense red-velvet cloak, which trailed
along the floor like a king's train; and on this cloak was embroidered,
in gold letters, which every one read and repeated aloud,
"Don't touch me! I am Red Death stalking abroad!"

You're right. It can be funny. Can you imagine the Phantom all in read with a white death's head and a plumed hat and those words embroidered on his cloak? Not only flamboyant, but a bit over the edge. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Yes, that's part of the reason I love the book, there's some humor hidden in something so sad.

Here's a quote by Raoul as he and Christine flee Apollo's Lyre:

"You are making me run away, for the first time in my life.
If we really saw Erik, what I ought to have done was to nail him
to Apollo's lyre, just as we nail the owls to the walls of our
Breton farms; and there would have been no more question of him."

Come dearie, let's have more quotes.

"...When he's working at that, he sees nothing; he does not eat,
drink, or breathe for days and nights at a time...he becomes a
living dead man and has no time to amuse himself with the trap-doors."

I love that whole "keep your hand at the level of your eyes'' part. Razz Though I don't think something that simple would stop Erik

in Heaven's name, at the level of your eyes!...know most of his tricks...
but not this one....Come, let us run....it is safer.
Hand at the level of your eyes!"

I think this is the longest speech in the entire story!
"Here I raise my mask a little...Oh, only a little!... You see my lips, such lips as I have? They're not moving!...My mouth is closed-such mouth as I have-and yet you hear my voice.... Where will you have it? In your left ear? In your right ear? In the table? In those little ebony boxes on the mantelpiece?...Listen, dear, it's in the little box on the right of the mantelpiece:what does it say? Shall I turn the scorpion?...And now, crack! What does it say in the little box on the left? Shall I turn the grasshopper?...And now, crack!Here it is in the little leather bag...What does it say? I am the little bag of life and death!...And now, crack! It is in Carlotta's throat, in Carlotta's golden throat, in Carlotta's crystal throat, as I live! What does it say? It says, 'It's I, Mr. Toad, it's I singing! I feel without alarm- CO-AK- with its melody entwind me- CO-AK!...And now, crack! It is on a chair in the ghost's box and it says, Madame Carlotta is singing to-nightto bring the chandelier down!... And now, crack! Aha! Where is Erik's voice now? Listen, Christine, darling! Listen! It is behind the door to the torture-chamber! Listen! It's myself in the torture-chamber! Aha, aha, aha! And what do I say? I say, Woe to them that have a nose, a real nose, and come to look round the torture-chamber! Aha,aha, aha!"
