"Come on, say it again. I'm a perfect devil. Tell me how bad I am. It makes me feel so good!"
— Anne Rice (The Queen of the Damned)

"Evil is a point of view. We are immortal. And what we have before us are the rich feasts that conscience cannot appreciate and mortal men cannot know without regret. God kills, and so shall we; indiscriminately He takes the richest and the poorest, and so shall we; for no creatures under God are as we are, none so like Him as ourselves, dark angels not confined to the limits of hell but wandering His earth and all its kingdoms."
-Lestat, Interview with the Vampire.

"None of us really changes over time. We only become more fully what we are."
— Anne Rice (The Vampire Lestat)

"Do you love me now?" I asked. He smiled; oh, it was excruciating to see his face soften and brighten simultaneously when he smiled. "Yes."

"Whatever will happen will happen, but choose your companions with care. Choose them because you like to look at them and you like the sound of their voices, and they have profound secrets in them that you wish to know. In other words, choose them because you love them. Otherwise you will not be able to bear their company for very long."
— Anne Rice

" I kissed him suddenly, loving the warmth of him, the soft pliant feel of his near-human skin."

"...You are the Devil. Yes. But you're not evil? Why?"
"Completely irrelevant question. Or let me put it a little more mysteriously. It's completely unnecessary for me to be evil..."
- Lestat and Memnoch in Memnoch the Devil

"Perhaps I fear him because I could love him again, and in loving him, I would come to need him, and in needing him, I would again be his faithful pupil in all things, only to discover that his patience for me is no substitute for the passion which long ago blazed in his eyes."
-Armand about Marius in The Vampire Armand

"I was good and bad, but never wicked."
— Anne Rice
