Jekyll and Hyde Chapter 8-10
'His own jangled nerves'
'For God's sake'...'find me some of the old'
'The hair stood upon my head like quills'
'Your master, Poole, is plainly seized with one of those maladies that both torture and deform the sufferer'
'Alteration of his voice'
'Hence the mask and his avoidance of his friends'
'Eagerness to find this drug'
'That thing was not my master'
'It is the belief of my heart that there was murder done'
'Masked thing like a monkey'
'It went down my spine like ice'
'Sudden chill of horror'
'This glass have seen some strange things, sir'
'Blank silence followed'
'With a note of something like triumph in his voice'
'This is a very strange tale, Poole'
'It seems he had slipped out'
'Nowhere was there any trace of Henry Jekyll, dead or alive'
'This is a strange note'
'I cannot remember, at least on my side, a break in our affection'
'It was plain they were of Jekyll's private manufacture'
'Might have been about half-full of a blood-red liquor'
'It whetted my curiosity'
'Strange to relate'
'Something seizing, surprising and revolting'
'He turned a dreadful smile to me'
'A fresh terror struck upon my soul'
'A certain icy pang along my blood'
'Approaches of hysteria'
'I could hear his teeth grate'
'His face was so ghastly'
'I sat petrified'
'A cry followed; he reeled, staggered, clutched at the table and held on, staring with injected eyes, gasping with open mouth'
'His face became suddenly black and the features seemed to melt and alter'
'My mind submerged in terror'
'Like a man restored from death'
'My soul sickened at it'
'My life is shaken to its roots'
'I concealed my pleasures'
'Committed to a profound duplicity of life'
'Those provinces of good and ill which divide and compound man's dual nature'
'Not truly one, but truly two'
'The mystic and the transcendental'
'A second form and countenance substituted'
'I felt younger, lighter, happier in body'
'Smaller, slighter and younger'
'All human beings, as we meet them, are commingled out of good and evil'
'My virtue slumbered; my evil, kept awake by my ambition, was alert and swift to seize the occasion'
'Henry Jekyll stood at times aghast before the acts of Edward Hyde'
'Yes, I had gone to bed Henry Jekyll, I had awakened Edward Hyde'
'Jekyll shared in the pleasures and adventures of Hyde'
'I chose the better part'
'My devil had long been caged, he came out roaring'
'I was now confined to the better part of my existence'
'I was still cursed with my duality of purpose'
'Hunted, houseless, a known murderer'
'Of all men's respect, wealthy, beloved'
'It was the horror of being Hyde that racked me'
'The brute that slept within me'
'The powers of Hyde seemed to have grown with the sickliness of Jekyll'
'I find it in my heart to pity him'
'Doom that is closing on us both'
'Unhappy Henry Jekyll'
