A grandmother pretends she doesn’t know who you are on Halloween. ~Erma Bombeck
‘Tis now the very witching time of night,
When churchyards yawn and hell itself breathes out
Contagion to this world.
One need not be a chamber to be haunted;
One need not be a house;
The brain has corridors surpassing
Where there is no imagination there is no horror. ~Arthur Conan Doyle, Sr.
There is something haunting in the light of the moon; it has all the dispassionateness of a disembodied soul, and something of its inconceivable mystery. ~Joseph Conrad
Of calling shapes, and beck’ning shadows dire,
And airy tongues that syllable men’s names.
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. ~J.M. Barrie
I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself than be crowded on a velvet cushion. ~Henry David Thoreau
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. ~Kim Elizabeth
