Tis now the very witching time of night,
When churchyards yawn and hell itself breathes out
Contagion to this world.

Be wary then; best safety lies in fear

William Shakespeare: Hamlet

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

Scottish Saying


One need not be a chamber to be haunted;
One need not be a house;
The brain has corridors surpassing
Material place.

Emily Dickinson

 Where there is no imagination there is no horror.

Men fear death as children fear to go in the dark; and as that natural fear in children is increased with tales, so is the other.

Sir Francis Bacon: Essays, Of Death


Deep into the darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing,
Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.

Edgar Allan Poe: The Raven

The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.

I know of the leafy paths that the witches take
Who come with their crowns of pearl and their spindles of wool,
And their secret smile, out of the depths of the lake....
