The Write Quotations #3 – Halloween

Arthur Cleveland Coxe

‘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.

Author Unknown

When witches go riding,
and black cats are seen,
the moon laughs and whispers,
‘tis near Halloween.

Carolyn Wells

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.

William Motherwell

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

Author Unknown

May Jack-o-lanterns burning bright
Of soft and golden hue
Pierce through the future’s veil and show
What fate now holds for you.

Dexter Kozen

Shadows of a thousand years rise again unseen,
Voices whisper in the trees, “Tonight is Halloween!

Arthur Conan Doyle, Sr.

Where there is no imagination there is no horror.

William Shakespeare

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

Joel Benton

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

Author Unknown

When black cats prowl and pumpkins gleam,
May luck be yours on Halloween.

Scottish Saying

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