Do you know your Dracula quotes, people?

Too many people think that they know the real Count Dracula. He appears on so much of our media and has been depicted from a monster to a laughable cartoon character on Sunday mornings. During Halloween, we dress up as a vampire with no hesitation and practically everyone has seen Twilight, that movie of beautiful and sparkly vampires.

The real dracula though is Bram Stoker’s Dracula from his novel of the same name published as far back as 1897. The character was modeled after 15th century Prince Vlad III the Impaler who had a reputation for cruelty and violence. The book character Count Dracula was mentioned to be a “most wonderful man” in life. As a centuries-old vampire, he is a cordial, enigmatic, and mysteriously charismatic character.

Read the book how he unfolds his plans for world domination and how he sows terror in London. In the meantime, enjoy these Dracula quotes and understand the mind behind.
