Sunday, October 31: Halloween
I'm inclined to think we are all ghosts --every one of us. It's not just what we inherit from our mothers and fathers that haunts us. It's all kinds of old defunct theories, all sorts of old defunct beliefs, and things like that.
- Henrik Ibsen, Ghosts
Autumn comes like a warrior, with the stain of blood upon his brazen mail. His crimson scarf is rent. His scarlet banner drips with gore. His step is like a flail upon the threshing floor.
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Autumn
