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
Witches in Macbeth.

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.
William Shakespeare
Witches in Macbeth.

From ghoulies and ghosties
And long-leggedy beasties
And things that go bump in the night,
Good Lord, deliver us!
Scottish Saying

'Tis now the very witching time of night,
When churchyards yawn and hell itself breathes out
Contagion to this world.
William Shakespeare

I'll bet living in a nudist colony takes all the fun out of Halloween.
Author Unknown

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!
Washington Irving
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

If a man harbors any sort of fear, it makes him landlord to a ghost.

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!'
Dexter Kozen

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, fearing,
Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.
Edgar Allan Poe
The Raven.

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 other.
Sir Francis Bacon
Essays, Of Death.

Men fear thought as they fear nothing else on earth-- more than ruin, more even than death.
Bertrand Russell

You can discover what your enemy fears most by observing the means he uses to frighten you.
Eric Hoffer

At first cock-crow the ghosts must go
Back to their quiet graves below.
Theodosia Garrison

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!
Virna Sheard

A grandmother pretends she doesn't know who you are on Halloween.
Erma Bombeck

There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls.
George Carlin

Nothing on Earth so beautiful as the final haul on Halloween night.
Steve Almond

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.
River Phoenix

They that are born on Halloween shall see more than other folk.
Author Unknown

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

Men say that in this midnight hour,
The disembodied have power
To wander as it liketh them,
By wizard oak and fairy stream.
William Motherwell

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.
Carolyn Wells

Pixie, kobold, elf, and sprite,
All are on their rounds tonight;
In the wan moon's silver ray,
Thrives their helter-skelter play.
Joel Benton
