I hope you all have a fun and spooky Halloween.  Here are some of my favorite scary quotes in honour of the day . . . .

“Never walk near the bed; to a ghost your ankle is your most vulnerable part–once in bed, you’re safe; he may lie around under the bed all night, but you’re safe as daylight. If you still have doubts pull the blanket over your head.” ~ This Side of Paradise by F. Scott Fitzgerald

All things pass. Only remain cosmic force and matter, ever in flux, ever acting and reacting and realizing the eternal types—the priest, the soldier, and the king. Out of the mouths of babes comes the wisdom of all the ages. Some will fight, some will rule, some will pray; and all the rest will toil and suffer sore while on their bleeding carcasses is reared again, and yet again, without end, the amazing beauty and surpassing wonder of the civilized state. ~ The Scarlet Plague by Jack London

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

One disagreeable result of whispering is that it seems to evoke an atmosphere of silence, haunted by the ghosts of sound-strange cracks and tickings, the rustling of garments that have no substance in them, and the tread of dreadful feet that would leave no mark on the sea-sand or the winter snow. ~ Bleak House by Charles Dickens

It used to puzzle him that, after dark, someone would look in round the edge of the bedroom door, and withdraw again too rapidly for him to see the face. ~ The Other Wing by Algernon Blackwood

Rain QuotesI woke up this morning to a forecast of rain.  It looks like it’s going to rain through the whole weekend and the sun won’t be out until Monday.  So in honor of the rainy weekend I’ll probably be having, here are some quotes about rain from literature.

“Ah,” said Dolly, with soothing gravity, “it’s like the night and the morning, and the sleeping and the waking, and the rain and the harvest–one goes and the other comes, and we know nothing how nor where. We may strive and scrat and fend, but it’s little we can do arter all–the big things come and go wi’ no striving o’ our’n–they do, that they do.” ~ Silas Marner by George Eliot

All day the wind had screamed and the rain had beaten against the windows, so that even here in the heart of great, hand-made London we were forced to raise our minds for the instant from the routine of life and to recognise the presence of those great elemental forces which shriek at mankind through the bars of his civilisation, like untamed beasts in a cage. ~ The Five Orange Pips by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

I wish I were not quite so lonely—and so poor. And yet I love both my loneliness and my poverty. The former makes me appreciate the companionship of the wind and rain, while the latter preserves my liver and prevents me wasting time in dancing attendance upon women. ~ The Listener by Algernon Blackwood

Love comforteth like sunshine after rain.” ~ Venus and Adonis by William Shakespeare

The sky was dark and gloomy, the air was damp and raw, the streets were wet and sloppy. The smoke hung sluggishly above the chimney-tops as if it lacked the courage to rise, and the rain came slowly and doggedly down, as if it had not even the spirit to pour. ~ The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens

Communication QuotesThe other day I noticed that the site has a lot of great quotes that deal with communication.  Here are a few of my favorites.

“Facts or opinions which are to pass through the hands of so many, to be misconceived by folly in one, and ignorance in another, can hardly have much truth left.” ~  Persuasion by Jane Austen

The fool wonders, the wise man asks. ~ Count Alarcos: A Tragedy by Benjamin Disraeli

Mrs. Bittacy rustled ominously, holding her peace meanwhile. She feared long words she did not understand. Beelzebub lay hid among too many syllables. ~ The Man Whom the Trees Loved by Algernon Blackwood

Silence is of different kinds, and breathes different meanings. ~ Villette by Charlotte Bronte

Noteworthy Link – The Ghost Club

Noteworthy Link

What do Charles Dickens, Algernon Blackwood, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and W.B.Yeats all have in common? They were members of The Ghost Club.

The Ghost Club is the oldest organization in the world associated with research of psychic events and issues.   The group was founded in 1862 and exists today. Their website states:

Today the Ghost Club is a non-profit, social club run by an elected Council of volunteers and its purpose remains true to its roots; the Ghost Club offers open-minded, curious individuals the opportunity to debate, explore and investigate unexplained phenomena with like-minded people and record the results for posterity.
