Thoughts for Thursday: Halloween

Happy Halloween Everyone! I know not everyone will see this due to today being the holiday, but how could I pass up the chance for some great Halloween quotes, especially since it fell on the actual day? So, here goes:

Thoughts for Thursday is a new feature hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

In honor of the coming holiday, this week's theme is Halloween (For even more quotes, visit my other blog.)

Halloween wraps fear in innocence,
As though it were a slightly sour sweet.
Let terror, then, be turned into a treat...~Nicholas Gordon

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

There is magic in the night when pumpkin glows by moonlight.
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 cauldron bubble.~William Shakespeare, Macbeth
From ghoulies and ghosties And long-leggedy beasties
And things that go bump in the night,Good Lord, deliver us! ~Scottish Saying
Deep into the darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing,
Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.~Edgar Allen Poe, The Raven
If a man harbors any sort of fear, it makes him landlord to a ghost.~Lloyd Douglas
Which is your favorite quote about Halloween? Do you have one to add?
