Ah, Halloween: A holiday that celebrates sweets and offers us a perfect excuse to watch our favorite scary Halloween movies. It’s safe to say you can count us in.
Whether you’re also looking forward to the fall or need a little coaxing to get you excited, these fabulously witchy Halloween quotes are bound to get you in the spooky spirit—and fast. Our list includes a few beloved classics for the younger set—like this memorable line from It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown: “A person should always choose a costume which is in direct contrast to her own personality.” But it’s also chock full of more sophisticated favorites, such as Shakespeare’s “By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes.”
Use these sayings for all your fall Instagram captions or just delight an unsuspecting friend via text. Whatever you choose, they’re certain to be appreciated (almost as much as these delicious Halloween desserts.)
