Halloween 2019: Scariest quotes to celebrate the spooky holiday

Fright Night

Welcome to Fright Night!

Halloween 2019 is here and plenty of little ghosts and goblins will be making the rounds tonight to go trick-or-treating. For others, the night takes a darker turn when nothing but sheer terror will do.

No matter how you celebrate Halloween, here’s a collection of some of the best quotes and inspiration for Oct. 31:

“If human beings had genuine courage, they’d wear their costumes every day of the year, not just on Halloween.” - - Douglas Coupland

“Halloween is not only about putting on a costume, but it’s about finding the imagination and costume within ourselves.” - - Elvis Duran

“But I love Halloween, and I love that feeling: the cold air, the spooky dangers lurking around the corner.” - - Evan Peters

“One need not be a chamber to be haunted. One need not be a house. The brain has corridors surpassing material place.” - - Emily Dickinson

“We ask only to be reassured about the noises in the cellar and the window that should not have been open.” -- T. S. Eliot

“It’s said that All Hallows’ Eve is one of the nights when the veil between the worlds is thin - and whether you believe in such things or not, those roaming spirits probably believe in you, or at least acknowledge your existence, considering that it used to be their own. Even the air feels different on Halloween, autumn-crisp and bright.” - - Erin Morgenstern

“Some people are born for Halloween, and some are just counting the days until Christmas.” - - Stephen Graham Jones

“The great thing about candy is that it can’t be spoiled by the adult world. Candy is innocent. And all Halloween candy pales next to candy corn, if only because candy corn used to appear, like the Great Pumpkin, solely on Halloween.” - - Rosecrans Baldwin

“By the picking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes.” - - William Shakespeare

“The worst thing about Halloween is, of course, candy corn. It’s unbelievable to me. Candy corn is the only candy in the history of America that’s never been advertised. And there’s a reason. All of the candy corn that was ever made was made in 1911. And so, since nobody eats that stuff, every year there’s a ton of it left over.” - - Lewis Black
