I feel a change. Back to a better day. The hair stands on the back of my neck, in wildness is the preservation of the world. So seek the wolf in thyself!
~ Metallica, "Of Wolf and Man", a song about becoming a werewolf.
Even a man who is pure in heart and says his prayers by night, may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms and the autumn moon is bright
~ Jenny Williams from The Wolfman, alluding to Werewolves
