A lonely journey in a snowstorm on All Souls’ Night, when the dead travel fast. The traveler takes refuge in a marble sepulchre, the tomb of a mysterious Austrian countess, and is attacked by a werewolf.     

Bram Stoker

A werewolf - a very dubious pretext, one I can hardly accept. Werewolves are the unhealthy machinations of timid little minds. Now, be off with you.     

Sybilla

Lycanthropy is in his blood, / And spreads to those he slays. / Uncontrolled metamorphosis, / Undetectable by day. / But when the moon is waxing, / And all the world's asleep. / Through woods and fields, / The werewolf he will creep.     

Andrew Paul Williams

A muzzle / on a werewolf / Will never tame / its bite / Whose jaws retract, / with fangs intact / Enraged, / —to prowl the night.

But, notions of the werewolf, both in folklore and popular culture, have one thing in common; it is fear of the unknown and suspicion against strange and unfamiliar people. The savage image of the werewolf, being uncivilized and nocturnal, fits well: it is a way of expressing fears of what is believed to be wrong with society […] werewolves reveal our fear of what lurks inside, the beast hidden in us all that has the potential to change a rational and moral person, leaving only dreaded animal behaviour and appetites of lust, hunger, and rage.     

Tommy Kuusela

Another werewolf thing. Like most animals, we spent a large part of our lives engaged in the three Fs of basic survival. Feeding, fighting and reproduction.     

Kelley Armstrong

Stephen King

Janiera Eldridge

Whether you're a vampire or werewolf, love is still love. Betrayal is still betrayal.

If being a werewolf is really a curse, you've got to treat it honorably. If werewolves are going to carry on, there has to be an incredibly powerful force. There is the business of the craving, the hunger for the kill. It has to be deeply pleasurable and more than an appetite for meat. There has to be a sensual dimension to it.     

Glen Duncan

We have all seen werewolf transformations hundreds of times on screen.     

Glen Duncan

The truth is, if a werewolf behaved like this psychopath it wouldn't be because he was part animal, but because he was still too human. Only humans kill for sport.     

Kelley Armstrong

The werewolf is neither man nor wolf, but a satanic creature with the worst qualities of both.     

Warner Oland
