All men, however highly educated, retain some superstitious inklings.
~ The Invisible Man
by H. G. Wells
All this disquisition upon superstition leads me up to the fact that Mr. Manson, our second mate, saw a ghost last night--or, at least, says that he did, which of course is the same thing.
~ The Captain of the Polestar
by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
"Young men of this class never do anything for themselves that they can get other people to do for them, and it is the infatuation, the devotion, the superstition of others that keeps them going. These others in ninety-nine cases out of a hundred are women."
~ Washington Square
by Henry James
Instead of trying to still his fears, he encouraged them, with that superstitious impression which clings to us all, that if we expect evil very strongly it is the less likely to come.
~ Silas Marner
by George Eliot
