Happy Halloween Wishes for Friends
'Tis now the very witching time of night, When churchyards yawn and hell itself breathes out
Contagion to this world.
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 other.
-Sir Francis Bacon, Essays , "Of Death"
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
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 [99-55 B.C.], De Rerum Natura, bk. III, l. 87
Where there is no imagination there is no horror.
-Sir Arthur Conan Doyle]
There is a sacred HORROR about everything grand. It is easy to admire mediocrity and hills;
but whatever is too lofty, a genius as well as a mountain, an assembly as well as a
masterpiece, seen too near, is appalling.
The dream reveals the reality which conception lags behind. That is the horror of life—the
terror of art.
-One of the best quotes by Franz Kafka
From ghoulish and ghosties and long leggety beasties and things that go bump in the night,
Good Lord, deliver us!
- Scottish saying
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.
-William Shakespeare (a quote from "Macbeth")
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 specter, 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 scouring!
- Washington Irving (a quote from "The Legend of Sleep Hollow")
Bring forth the raisins and the nuts- Tonight All-Hallows' Specter struts Along the moonlit
-John Kendrick Bangs
