Jeanne Kalogridis quotes (showing 1-14 of 14)

“I do not worship their devil. Nor do I worship their other gods--Jesus, Jehovah, the Holy Spirit--but I respect them, for all gods are One. I worship the Great Mother, the one many call Diana, whose secret name the inquisitors shall never know. If this makes me a witch by their definition--very well then, I am a witch, just as surely as they are Christians and murderers.”
Jeanne Kalogridis, The Burning Times
“Miroir de l'Ame Pecheresse, Mirror of a Lost Soul.”
Jeanne Kalogridis, The Devil's Queen: A Novel of Catherine de Medici
“I had learned a fundamental truth about killing: The victim's anguish is brief and fleeting, but the murderer's endures forever.”
Jeanne Kalogridis, The Devil's Queen: A Novel of Catherine de Medici
“I had a choice: to quail, or to harden.

I hardened.”
Jeanne Kalogridis, The Devil's Queen: A Novel of Catherine de Medici

“«Está nua, e a luz impregna a sua pele branca de um brilho quente, como se tivesse mergulhada em mel (...)»”
Jeanne Kalogridis, The Scarlet Contessa
“E poi il mio braccio cadde e l'oscurità scese completamente. Fu l'istante di estasi più profonda che io abbia mai conosciuto. Anche ora non posso scrivere della mia morte, non posso ricordarla, senza un brivido di piacere, senza il desiderio di ritornare ancora una volta in quel momento infinito.”
Jeanne Kalogridis
“The sensation that seized me that morning―the twentieth of May―as I sat on my velvet cushion beside the Pope and stared down at the man standing beside my husband, was swift, irrevocable, and violent, like a dagger plunged into the heart. I trembled. I did not want it; I did not seek it; yet there it was, and I was at the mercy of it. And I knew nothing of the man who had just stolen my soul.”
Jeanne Kalogridis, The Borgia Bride
“To love someone,” she said. “I can tell from your face that you love this man, and you loved your husband, too. What is it like?” “It is . . . wonderful,” I replied. “It gives me a reason to wake up every morning. When he is happy, I am happy; when he is sad, I want only to cheer him. It is the best thing in life; nothing else comes close to it.”
Jeanne Kalogridis, The Scarlet Contessa: A Novel of the Italian Renaissance

Jeanne Kalogridis, Covenant with the Vampire

I hardened.”
Jeanne Kalogridis
“How could you ever have loved a man so cruel?'
Trusia lifted her chin at that, and regarded me intensely; her voice held a trace of indignance, and I understood that the depth of her love for my father transcended all else. 'You speak as though I had a choice,' she said.”
Jeanne Kalogridis, The Borgia Bride
