Halloween Scary Quotes

Tomorrow is Halloween and most of us are not going trick or treating like we use to.  It was the best when we (30 something and more crowd) went trick or treating.  All the houses on the block gave candy.  Except for just one or two and there was nothing unsafe about it.  Remember eating your candy as you went from house to house.  I remember the older boys would always carry pillowcases instead of the pumpkin buckets all the other kids had.  Like they really were going to fill the whole thing up.  Today, everyone is at the mall.  Really the mall!  What is scary about the mall?

Well here are a few quotes from our favorite authors that love to scary us to death…

“People want to know why I do this, why I write such gross stuff. I like to tell them I have the heart of a small boy… and I keep it in a jar on my desk.” -Stephen King

Ray Bradbury

“For these beings, fall is ever the normal season, the only weather, there be no choice beyond. Where do they come from? The dust. Where do they go? The grave. Does blood stir their veins? No: the night wind. What ticks in their head? The worm. What speaks from their mouth? The toad. What sees from their eye? The snake. What hears with their ear? The abyss between the stars. They sift the human storm for souls, eat flesh of reason, fill tombs with sinners. They frenzy forth….Such are the autumn people.” ― Ray Bradbury

Clive Barker

“Harvey wasn’t interested in the clothes, it was the masks that mesmerized him. They were like snowflakes: no two alike. Some were made of wood and of plastic; some of straw and cloth and papier-mâché. Some were as bright as parrots, others as pale as parchment. Some were so grotesque he was certain they’d been carved by crazy people; others so perfect they looked like the death masks of angels. There were masks of clowns and foxes, masks like skulls decorated with real teeth, and one with carved flames instead of hair.” ― Clive Barker

 

“Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.”  -Edgar Allan Poe

Just another girl who loves to read and then read some more and wants to meet others like me.
  • Ha! Just read and watched “The Halloween Tree” by Ray Bradbury for this Halloween!

    • How was it? I can’t remember the last scary book I read. Probably Misery back in the day.

  • It’s a nice Halloween tale for children. It was not as scary for me now that I am older but it’s still a nice little tale! :0)

    • I need to check out “The Halloween Tree.” I don’t read a lot of scary stuff, but I do love Edger Allen Poe!
