„Человек выбирает зло, не потому что это зло; он ошибочно принимает его за счастье, которое ищет. No man chooses evil because it is evil; he only mistakes it for happiness, the good he seeks.“

„Nothing is so painful to the human mind as a great and sudden change.“ Frankenstein


„Beware; for I am fearless, and therefore powerful.“ Frankenstein

„Life, although it may only be an accumulation of anguish, is dear to me, and I will defend it.“ Frankenstein

„No man chooses evil because it is evil; he only mistakes it for happiness, the good he seeks.“

„If I cannot inspire love, I will cause fear!“ Frankenstein

„I do know that for the sympathy of one living being, I would make peace with all. I have love in me the likes of which you can scarcely imagine and rage the likes of which you would not believe. If I cannot satisfy the one, I will indulge the other.“ Frankenstein

„How dangerous is the acquirement of knowledge and how much happier that man is who believes his native town to be the world, than he who aspires to be greater than his nature will allow.“ Frankenstein


„The beginning is always today.“

„There is something at work in my soul, which I do not understand.“ Frankenstein

„I ought to be thy Adam, but I am rather the fallen angel...“ Frankenstein

„Solitude was my only consolation - deep, dark, deathlike solitude.“


„the companions of our childhood always possess a certain power over our minds which hardly any later friend can obtain.“ Frankenstein

„Even broken in spirit as he is, no one can feel more deeply than he does the beauties of nature. The starry sky, the sea, and every sight afforded by these wonderful regions, seems still to have the power of elevating his soul from earth. Such a man has a double existence: he may suffer misery, and be overwhelmed by disappointments; yet, when he has retired into himself, he will be like a celestial spirit that has a halo around him, within whose circle no grief or folly ventures.“ Frankenstein

„Invention, it must be humbly admitted, does not consist in creating out of void but out of chaos.“

„Satan has his companions, fellow-devils, to admire and encourage him; but I am solitary and detested.“ Frankenstein
