I must go in, the fog is rising.— Emily Dickinson
Strong Halloween quotations
Double, double, toil and trouble; Fire burn, and cauldron bubble!
Halloween is a liberal holiday because we're teaching our children to beg for something for free. … We're teaching kids to knock on other people's doors and ask for a handout.
One need not be a chamber to be haunted;
One need not be a house; The brain has corridors surpassing Material place.

I know that, and I also know that if I'm careful to keep my foot under the covers, it will never be able to grab my ankle.

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?
For me, writing something in the spirit of Halloween is like Mother Teresa writing on charity and sacrifice. It's just second nature to me.
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor, Shall be lifted -- Nevermore!
As a kid, there are some things you looked forward to.
You looked forward to Charlie Brown during Halloween and you looked forward to Monday Night Football.
I've seen lots of Halloween people dressed up like me and they'll send me pictures. And I found that very rewarding to know that I've reached anyone.
I don't think I ever said, "I want to be an actress.
" But for Halloween, I dressed up as a movie star from when I was seven to when I was twelve. The costume was always a long dress, with makeup, and my hair curled, and jewelry on. And the movie star was always Jenny McCarthy. So right there you could see a little pattern.
At the end of the first Halloween, when I shot 6 bullets into Michael Myers, John Carpenter said, Let's get a shot of you looking out of the window and seeing no one lying there.
Oh Lestat, you deserved everything that's ever happened to you.
You better not die. You might actually go to hell.
When there's no more room in Hell, the dead will walk the Earth.
We were a family that made our Halloween costumes.
Or, more accurately, my mother made them. She took no suggestions or advice. Halloween costumes were her territory. She was the brain behind my brothers winning girl costume, stuffing her own bra with newspapers for him to wear under a cashmere sweater and smearing red lipstick on his lips.
Alone. Yes, that's the key word, the most awful word in the English tongue. Murder doesn't hold a candle to it and hell is only a poor synonym.
Shadows of a thousand years rise again unseen, Voices whisper in the trees, "Tonight is Halloween!"

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.
I want to continue to try and break the barrier between male and female.
I can see lights in the distance trembling in the dark cloak of night Candles and lanterns are dancing, dancing a waltz on All Souls Night.

Halloween was confusing. All my life my parents said, "Never take candy from strangers." And then they dressed me up and said, "Go beg for it." I didn't know what to do. I'd knock on people's doors and go, "Trick or treat."
Invisible things are the only realities.
Acting is like a Halloween mask that you put on.
As a species we're fundamentally insane.
Put more than two of us in a room, we pick sides and start dreaming up reasons to kill one another. Why do you think we invented politics and religion?
You'll see everything from gold teeth to hood ornaments. It's almost like Halloween during August.
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.
Make the world better.
Sit by my side, and let the world slip: we shall ne'er be younger.
Stars, hide your fires; Let not light see my black and deep desires.
