Devotion Mr Hyde quotations

My mother was a reader, and she read to us.

She read us Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde when I was six and my brother was eight; I never forgot it.

I think all human beings are at least a little bit Dr.

Jeckyl and Mr. Hyde, and many of us are downright quadrophenic.

There's a Mr. Hyde for every happy Jekyll face, a dark face on the other side of the mirror. The brain behind that face never heard of razors, prayers, or the logic of the universe. You turn the mirror sideways and see your face reflected with a sinister left-hand twist, half mad and half sane.

The poet's place, it seems to me, is with the Mr. Hydes of human nature.

I feel as though whenever I create something, my Mr.

Hyde wakes up in the middle of the night and starts thrashing it. I sometimes love it the next morning, but other times it is an abomination.

It doesn't happen all the time, but when I'm playing well it's as if my eyes change. I can feel it. I just feel like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde-a transformation happens, I'm a totally different human being. I don't hear anybody, I don't see anybody, nothing bothers me, nothing is going to interfere with what I'm about to do.

Another false philosophy that appeals to the Mr.

Hyde side of our natures is that peeking into pornography is harmless. This is a terrible deception. Pornography is as addictive as cocaine or any illegal drug.

More worryingly, my baby fangs were out, which usually happened only when I was perilously close to tipping over into Mr. Hyde territory. I quickly drew them back in. It didn’t help much. I still looked like Dracula’s daughter. Which was completely unfair, since he’d only been an uncle.

There's a Mr. Hyde for every happy Jekyll face, a dark face on the other side of the mirror.

Dr. Jeckyll & Mr. Hyde is a metaphor for alcoholism. He drinks a potion, becomes a monster. I know exactly how he feels.
