Writer’s Quote Wednesday: Halloween

 

Writer's Quote Wednesday

This week for Colleen’s Writer’s quote Wednesday I am celebrating Halloween quotes. Colleen is doing a flit, not by witch’s broom, I hasten to add, she’s packing up and going house hunting in Colorado. So here’s hoping all goes well for her and that her move is a big success. So let’s cast a spell for a successful trip. In the meantime, Ronovan, from his blog Ronovan Writes, and Mel, from her blog, Melissa Barker-Simpson are going to post occasionally for her while she is away. More details about that here: http://silverthreading.com/2015/10/03/inside-silvers-brain-the-great-move/

Here’s the link to her open invitation to join Writer’s Quote Wednesday: http://silverthreading.com/2015/10/07/writers-quote-wednesday-audrey-hepburn/

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

“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, Halloween: A Romaunt

Nobody moved.

Everybody sat in the dark cellar, suspended in the suddenly frozen task of this October game; the wind blew outside, banging the house, the smell of pumpkins and apples filled the room with smell of the objects in their fingers while one boy cried, “I’ll go upstairs and look!” and he ran upstairs hopefully and out around the house, four times around the house, calling, “Marion, Marion, Marion!” over and over and at last coming slowly down the stairs into the waiting breathing cellar and saying to the darkness, “I can’t find her.”

Then… some idiot turned on the lights.
(“The October Game”)”
Ray Bradbury, Long After Midnight

Hold on, man. We don’t go anywhere with “scary,” “spooky,” “haunted,” or “forbidden” in the title.

~From Scooby-Doo.

Where there is no imagination there is no horror.

-Arthur Conan Doyle,Sr.

 Everyone is a moon and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.

– Mark Twain
In Girl World, Halloween is the one day a year when a girl can dress up like a total slut and no other girls can say anything else about it.

-from “Mean Girls”

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

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

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

Being in a band you can wear whatever you want — it’s like an excuse for Halloween everyday.

~Gwen Stefani

About Marje @ Kyrosmagica

Hi. Welcome to my blog, Kyrosmagica. A blog about magic, books, writing, laughter, and much more! I'm a debut writer in the process of finishing my first YA fantasy novel, set in Cambridge. I write book reviews on Net Galley and Goodreads. I have a penchant for travel and have relatives in far flung places, Australia, Malaysia, and Singapore, (my birthplace.) I grew up in in Bonnie Scotland, in Edinburgh, and now live in Cambridge. I love sunny, hot places, particularly Rome, Venice, Portugal, Barcelona, and I forgot to mention the sun drenched beaches of the Caribbean, how could I? I am lucky to have been blessed with two lovely daughters and a husband who I fondly refer to in this blog as my black sheep. Family joke! With my passion for travel, culture, beautiful beaches, good food, books, theatre, writing, and humour, I hope to keep you entertained. I'm loving every minute of this creative journey, please join me.
