Remembering Forever Knight

My quotes for the day come from Forever Knight, the series that ran from 1992-1996 about the vampire Nick Knight (Geraint Wyn-Davies) who tries to redeem his past actions while serving as a policeman in Toronto.

First, here are two of my favorite quotes from Lucien Lacroix, Nick's 2,000-year-old vampire master:

"What a wonderful thing humanity is: passionate, intelligent, inquisitive, generous, full of hope and joy, noble of spirit - and above all, delicious."

"If you love something, let it go. If it doesn't return - hunt it down, and kill
it."



Second, the opening lyrics to the "Suite from Queen of Harps":

It's a low wind rising the sun to break
Souls on the water
Winter chill takes your breath away
I'll be the ocean's daughter.



And last, the lyrics to "Touch the Night," a song played in "The Raven," the vampire-owned night club in Forever Knight. It's a rather Halloween-friendly song.

In the darkest reaches of the heart
You find a crossroads there




"Touch the Night"
from The Original Television Soundtrack: Forever Knight

In the darkest reaches of the heart
You find a crossroads there
Without a sign, without a mark
Where only others dare
You can touch the night
It's only hard to understand
You can touch the night
Like the touching of her hand

See the others seeking truth
They don't know where to look
We can see behind the stone
And go where we must go
You can touch the night
It's only hard to understand
You can touch the night
Like the touching of her hand

Like the moon that tracks the wolf
We seek another light
It can always pull us through
Help us reach an endless night
We can touch the night
It's only hard to understand
You can touch the night
Like the touching of her hand

In the darkest reaches of the heart
You find a crossroads there
Without a sign without a mark
Where others only dare
You can touch the night
It's only hard to understand
You can touch the night
Like the touching of her hand
