Today I tweeted many of my favorite song lyrics, Shakespearean quotes, lines from movies, and beloved bits of literature—all with a Halloween theme. I didn’t reference any of these tweets but I’ll do them proper now:
"Can’t sleep, clowns will eat me"—Alice Cooper
"Those clamorous harbingers of blood and death." William Shakespeare’s Macbeth

"Witches! All of them, witches!"—Rosemary’s Baby
"I’m all dressed up with nowhere to go…walkin’ with a dead man over my shoulder"—"Dead Man’s Party" by Oingo Boingo
"All you people are vampires…all your stories are stale…"—Arctic Monkey’s "Perhaps Vampire Is A Bit Strong But…"
"All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream."—Edgar Allan Poe
