- - -William Shakespeare (a quote from "Macbeth")
What fearful shapes and shadows beset his path, amidst the dim and
ghastly glare of a snowy
night! With what wistful look did he eye every trembling ray of
light streaming across the
waste fields from some distant window! How often was he appalled by
some shrub covered with
snow, which, like a sheeted specter, beset his very path! How often
did he shrink with
curdling awe at the sound of his own steps on the frosty crust
beneath his feet; and dread
to look over his shoulder, lest he should behold some uncouth being
tramping close behind
him! and how often was he thrown into complete dismay by some
rushing blast, howling among
the trees, in the idea that it was the Galloping Hessian on one of
his nightly scouring!
- - - Washington Irving (a quote from "The Legend of Sleep Hollow")
