More Quotes from Mary Shelley:

Half surprised by the novelty of these sensations, I allowed myself to be borne away by them, and forgetting my solitude and deformity, dared to be happy.

Mary Shelley

Mary Shelley

Mary Shelley

Mary Shelley

Beware; for I am fearless, and therefore powerful.
Mary Shelley
