Popular Quotes

“Good things come to an end, bad things have to be stopped.”
― Kim Newman, Anno Dracula

 “Quite a few vampires, especially the elders, regarded those who creep through graveyard shadows in batwing capes and fingerless black gloves as an Edinburgh gentleman might look upon a Yankee with a single Scots grandparent who swathes himself in kilts and tartan sashes, prefaces every remark with quotes from Burns or Scott and affects a fondness for bagpipes and haggis.”
― Kim Newman, Anno Dracula

“Somehow, the notion that Professor Moriarty had parents – might have been a child – never sat right. A viper is a snake straight from the egg. I couldn’t help but picture little Jamie as a balding midget in a sailor suit, spying Cook and the baker’s boy rolling in the flour on the kitchen table through his toy telescope, and blackmailing them for extra buns.”
― Kim Newman, Professor Moriarty: The Hound of the D’Urbervilles

 “There will never be slaves in Britain,’ Godalming continued, ‘but those who stay warm will naturally serve us, as the excellent Bessie has just served me. Have a care, lest you wind up the equivalent of some damned regimental water-bearer.’

In India, I knew a water-bearer who was a better man than most.”
― Kim Newman, Anno Dracula

 “Dullards would have you believe that once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth… but to a mathematical mind, the impossible is simply a theorem yet to be solved. We must not eliminate the impossible, we must conquer it, suborn it to our purpose.”
― Kim Newman, Professor Moriarty: The Hound of the D’Urbervilles

 “Moriarty rarely smiled,and then usually to terrify some poor victim. The first time I heard him laugh, I thought he had been struck by a deadly poison and the stutter escaping through his locked jaws was a death rattle.”
― Kim Newman, Professor Moriarty: The Hound of the D’Urbervilles

“No crime too small’ was never exactly Moriarty’s slogan, but the criminal genius would apply himself to minor offences if an unusual challenge was presented.”
― Kim Newman, Professor Moriarty: The Hound of the D’Urbervilles

 “He left the room, and closeted himself in the dark, buzzing space where he raised his wasps and plotted the courses of heavenly bodies.”
― Kim Newman, Professor Moriarty: The Hound of the D’Urbervilles

“How did your parents come to be “lost at sea”, Moriarty?’

The professor paused, and said, ‘Mysteriously, Moran.”
― Kim Newman, Professor Moriarty: The Hound of the D’Urbervilles

“We need to stop the little girl,” said Richard “pass me that shotgun.”
― Kim Newman, The Man from the Diogenes Club

One Final Bonus – Kim Newman Quote 

“Moriarty smiled his adder’s smile.

And I relaxed. I knew. My destiny and his wound together. It was a sensation I’d never got before upon meeting a man. When I’d had it from women, the upshot ranged from disappointment to attempted murder. Understand me, Professor James Moriarty was a hateful man, the most hateful, hateable, creature I have ever known, not excluding Sir Augustus and Kali’s Kitten and the Abominable Bloody Snow-Bastard and the Reverend Henry James Prince. He was something man-shaped that had crawled out from under a rock and moved into the manor house. But, at that moment, I was his, and I remain his forever. If I am remembered, it will be because I knew him. From that day on, he was my father, my commanding officer, my heathen idol, my fortune and terror and rapture.”
― Kim Newman, Professor Moriarty: The Hound of the D’Urbervilles
