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.
Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble. ~ William Shakespeare
I think if human beings had genuine courage, they’d wear their costumes every day of the year, not just on Halloween. Wouldn’t life be more interesting that way? And now that I think about it, why the heck don’t they? Who made the rule that everybody has to dress like sheep 364 days of the year? Think of all the people you’d meet if they were in costume every day. People would be so much easier to talk to – like talking to dogs. ~ Douglas Coupland
The farther we’ve gotten from the magic and mystery of our past, the more we’ve come to need Halloween. ~ Paula Curan
Haunt an old house.
Ask for a treat.
Laugh like a witch.
Lick something sweet.
Offer a trick.
Wander a maze.
Echo a boo.
Exclaim the phrase—
Normal’s unnatural on Halloween! ~ Richelle E. Goodrich
Never put your faith in a Prince. When you require a miracle, trust in a Witch. ~ Catherynne M. Valente
The first time I called myself a ‘Witch’ was the most magical moment of my life. ~ Margot Adler
Did you know that at one time trick-or-treating was stopped? It’s true. During World War II children were not allowed to trick or treat because there was a sugar shortage. ~ Linda Bozzo
I’ll bet living in a nudist colony takes all the fun out of Halloween. ~ Author Unknown
A grandmother pretends she doesn’t know who you are on Halloween. ~ Erma Bombeck
One need not be a chamber to be haunted;
One need not be a house;
The brain has corridors surpassing
Material place. ~ Emily Dickinson
Clothes make a statement. Costumes tell a story. ~ Mason Cooley
I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself than be crowded on a velvet cushion. ~ Henry David Thoreau
Hobgoblins know the proper way to dance:
Arms akimbo, loopy legs askew,
Leaping into darkness with delight,
Lusting for the ecstasy of fright,
Open to the charm of horrors new….
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
I vant to zuk your blood.” He waved his black gloved hands above his head as he tried out his awful Transylvanian accent. “You vish,” She replied. ~ J.L. Bryan
