    Frankenstein by Mary Shelley (excerpts) Chapter 2 I entered with the greatest diligence into the search of the philosopher's stone and the elixir of life. But the latter obtained my undivided attention: wealth was an inferior object; but what glory would attend the discovery, if I could banish disease from the human frame, and render man invulnerable to any but a violent death! Chapter 4 A new species would bless me as its creator and source; many happy and excellent natures would owe their being to me. No father could claim the gratitude of his child so completely as I should deserve theirs.

    Victor created the creature because of his love for science. Victor created the creature for the sake of wealth and riches. Victor created the creature because he wanted a companion. Victor created the creature because he wanted glory and fame.
