Quotes, Halloween Sayings
|Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg, and owlet's wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.
Witches in Macbeth.
Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.
Witches in Macbeth.
From ghoulies and ghosties
And long-leggedy beasties
And things that go bump in the night,
Good Lord, deliver us!
'Tis now the very witching time of night,
When churchyards yawn and hell itself breathes out
Contagion to this world.
I'll bet living in a nudist colony takes all the fun out of
What fearful shapes and shadows beset his path, amidst the dim
and ghastly glare of a snowy night! With what wistful look did
he eye every trembling ray of light streaming across the waste
fields from some distant window! How often was he appalled by
some shrub covered with snow, which, like a sheeted spectre,
beset his very path! How often did he shrink with curdling awe
at the sound of his own steps on the frosty crust beneath his
feet; and dread to look over his shoulder, lest he should behold
some uncouth being tramping close behind him! and how often
was he thrown into complete dismay by some rushing blast, howling
among the trees, in the idea that it was the Galloping Hessian
on one of his nightly scourings!
From 'The Legend of Sleep Hollow'.
There is nothing funny about Halloween. This sarcastic festival
reflects, rather, an infernal demand for revenge by children
on the adult world.
To suffering there is a limit; to fearing, none.
Sir Francis Bacon
Essays, Of Seditions and Troubles.
Ghosts, like ladies, never speak till spoke to.
Richard Harris Barham
On Halloween, the parents sent their kids out looking like me.
If a man harbors any sort of fear, it makes him landlord to
Where there is no imagination there is no horror.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Shadows of a thousand years
Rise again unseen,
Voices whisper in the trees
'Tonight is Halloween!'
Bring forth the raisins and the nuts-
Tonight All-Hallows' Spectre struts
Along the moonlit way.
John Kendrick Bangs
'Tis the night - the night
Of the grave's delight,
And the warlocks are at their play;
Ye think that without
The wild winds shout,
But no, it is they - it is they.
Arthur Cleveland Coxe
Deep into the darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering,
Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.
Edgar Allan Poe
A thousand fearful images and dire suggestions glance along
the mind when it is moody and discontented with itself. Command
them to stand and show themselves, and you presently assert
the power of reason over imagination.
Sir Walter Scott
For as children tremble and fear everything in the blind darkness,
so we in the light sometimes fear what is no more to be feared
than the things children in the dark hold in terror and imagine
will come true.
Titus Lucretius Carus
De Rerum Natura.
Men fear death as children fear to go in the dark; and as that
natural fear in children is increased with tales, so is the
Sir Francis Bacon
Essays, Of Death.
Men fear thought as they fear nothing else on earth-- more than
ruin, more even than death.
You can discover what your enemy fears most by observing the
means he uses to frighten you.
At first cock-crow the ghosts must go
Back to their quiet graves below.
A house is never still in darkness to those who listen intently;
there is a whispering in distant chambers, an unearthly hand
presses the snib of the window, the latch rises. Ghosts were
created when the first man awoke in the night.
James Matthew Barrie
Hark! Hark to the wind! 'Tis the night, they say,
When all souls come back from the far away-
The dead, forgotten this many a day!
A grandmother pretends she doesn't know who you are on Halloween.
There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon
Nothing on Earth so beautiful as the final haul on Halloween
I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself than
be crowded on a velvet cushion.
Henry David Thoreau
Acting is like a Halloween mask that you put on.
They that are born on Halloween shall see more than other folk.
Nothing beats a haunted moonlit night on All Hallows Eve....
And on this fatal night, at this witching time, the starless
sky laments black and unmoving. The somber hues of an ominous,
dark forest are suddenly illuminated under the emerging face
of the full moon.
Men say that in this midnight hour,
The disembodied have power
To wander as it liketh them,
By wizard oak and fairy stream.
You wouldn't believe
On All Hallow Eve
What lots of fun we can make,
With apples to bob,
And nuts on the hob,
And a ring-and-thimble cake.
Pixie, kobold, elf, and sprite,
All are on their rounds tonight;
In the wan moon's silver ray,
Thrives their helter-skelter play.
