Halloween Quotes

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

Eye of new, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg, and howlet's wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boi and bubble.
- Macbeth William Shakespeare

On Hallowe'en the thing
you must do
Is pretend that nothing
can frighten you
An' if somethin' scares you
and you want to run
Jus' let on like
it's Hallowe'en fun.
- from an Early Nineteenth Century Halloween Postcard

I know'd it, know'd it,
Indeed I know'd it brother
I know'd it - Weeee!
Dem bones gonna rise again.
- Anonymous Early AMerican Ballad

Just a little witch
on high
She'll tell you that
your love is nigh
Your fortune on Hallowe'en
when told
My secret will the witch unfold.
- from an early 19th Century Hallowe'en Postcard

Come with me
All Hallow's night
We'll frighten everyone in sight
Such pranks for ince,
are justified
And fun and frolic amplified.
- From an Early Nineteenth-Century Halloween Postcard

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

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

Ghosts, like ladies, never speak till spoke to
-Richard Harris Barham.

Happy Haunting!
