Charles Dickens

Alfred North Whitehead

Peter James
When you feel a ghost, most people will feel chills – you’re feeling the energy.
Zak Bagans

The universe is so enormous, and we have no idea what’s on the other side of the galaxy. It’s a lovely thing to be able to tap into.

He says that’s how we get by sometimes. But it’s not weak, like hidin’…it’s strong. It means you’re able to go on.
Susan Crandall
My sister Kwan believes she has yin eyes. She sees those who have died and now dwell in the world of Yin, ghosts who leave the mists just to visit her kitchen on Balboa Street in San Francisco.
Amy Tan
I bear testimony of our Heavenly Father, the Father of our spirits; of Jesus Christ, our Redeemer and Savior; and of the Holy Ghost, who is the means through which we receive divine guidance. I bear testimony that we can personally receive inspiration.
Allan F. Packer
I think a lot of the fun of making records, for me, is making each one of them a situation. For example, with ‘Ghost,’ I found a group of people that had an energy together, and we kind of did it in a cabin somewhere.
Devin Townsend
When we are baptized and confirmed, the promised blessing is that we may always have the Holy Ghost to be with us. If you are consistently good, you will have the companionship of the Holy Ghost much of the time.
David A. Bednar
Ah, how often I’ve cursed those foolish pages,
That showed my youthful sufferings to everyone!
If Werther had been my brother, and I’d killed him,
His sad ghost could hardly have persecuted me more.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Do the things you want to do; if you don’t, the things which keep you alive inside you die and you turn into a ghost!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
I’m a real open-minded skeptic when it comes to the ghost world. And there are places that I’ve traveled to where it’s very scary and I end up feeling like there might be something going on there.
Josh Gates
So that’s the ghost you been running from.
Nicholas Sparks
No amount of time in front of the mirror will make you as attractive as having the Holy Ghost with you.
Sheri L. Dew
All a skeptic is is someone who hasn’t had an experience yet.
Jason Hawes
We know that in September, we will wander through the warm winds of summer’s wreckage. We will welcome summer’s ghost.
Henry Rollins
People were buying two, three and four houses to be sold on and rented out. Then the money ran out. To this day you see a lot of what we call ghost estates around Ireland, which have not been finished.
Sarah Greene
The Father and the Son have one Will, and that Will is the Holy Ghost, Who gives Himself to the soul so that the Divine Nature permeates the powers of the soul so that it can only do God-like works.
Meister Eckhart
How awful it was, thought Tessa, remembering Fats the toddler, the way tiny ghosts of your living children haunted your heart; they could never know, and would hate it if they did, how their growing was a constant bereavement.
J. K. Rowling
I bear witness that the Savior lives. He loves you. He will guide you through the Holy Ghost as you steadfastly choose to do what is right to a future glorious beyond your dreams. I know He will.
Richard G. Scott
Purifying and sealing by the Holy Spirit of Promise constitute the culminating steps in the process of being born again.
David A. Bednar
Then he raised her enough to whisper in her ear, and while his voice was tender, his words were savage. “You’re my woman, and no man or God or ghost will ever take you from me.
Lisa Kleypas
I think it is just a matter of time before we have literal ghosts in the machine so you can create an alter ego of yourself that learns from your social experiences and extends a life even if you’re no longer in the game or you are no longer alive.
Paul Saffo
But then, my entire life is bullshit. The best things in it have vanished, ghosts. Ghosts I’ll admit I created.
Ellen Hopkins
I read a lot of ghost stories because I was writing a ghost story. I didn’t think at all I was writing a horror or a thriller or whatever because it is about a ghost, whereas a horror film can be about aliens or things that rise out of the marsh that have no human shape.
Susan Hill
‘Ghost Hunters,’ they like to go out and disprove everything and just wave a bunch of equipment around for a couple hours.
Zak Bagans
Dakota’s head was stuck in his toga. He staggered around olike a Kool-Aid-stained ghost. “Um,” Percy said, “should I wear my bed sheets?
Rick Riordan
Everyone has a ghost story, or at least thats how it has always seemed to me.
John Searles
Then he left her there, standing alone, surrounded by word ghosts; things she could have said.
Kristin Hannah
I am a storyteller from a personal viewpoint. When I run out of people I invent ghosts. I don’t believe in ghosts. Never saw one.
Ruskin Bond
In whatever you do, if you leave a sense of incompleteness, then Creation cannot resent you, ghosts and spirits cannot harm you. If you insist on fulfillment in your work and perfection in achievement, you will become either inwardly deranged or outwardly unsettled.
Zicheng Hong
The spirit of God speaking to the spirit of man has power to impart truth with greater effect and understanding than the truth can be imparted by personal contact even with heavenly beings. Through the Holy Ghost, the truth is woven into the very fibre and sinews of the body so that it cannot be forgotten.
Joseph Fielding Smith
The Holy Ghost has called me by the gospel and illuminated me with his gifts and sanctified and preserved me in the true faith.
Martin Luther
But happiness is brittle, and if men and circumstances don’t destroy it, it is threatened by ghosts.
Marguerite Yourcenar
With supernatural things, I have heard ghosts, but I’ve never seen ghosts. I do seek ghosts and I would love to see one, but I would crap my pants.
Guillermo del Toro
The only good excuse for not succeeding is DEATH! Unless you’re trying to be a ghost. Then it’s LIFE!
Craig Benzine
What do I look like, the ghost whisperer? They’re loony. I’d have better luck talking to my cousin Alfonso’s Chihuahua. At least TГ­a Juana knows Spanish.” “Your cousin’s Chihuahua is named TГ­a Juana?
Darynda Jones
I silently laugh at my own cenotaph,
And out of the caverns of rain,
Like a child from the womb, like a ghost from the tomb,
I arise and unbuild it again.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
I am less interested in ghosts than in people who see ghosts.
Graham Joyce
I think Catholicism took root very quickly in Ireland because it’s a very superstitious religion, the holy ghost, the holy spirit, it has a goddess, very visual, the music.
Conor McPherson
From my earliest years I had always wanted to be a writer. It was not that I had any particular message for humanity. I am still plugging away and not the ghost of one so far, so it begins to look as though, unless I suddenly hit mid-season form in my eighties, humanity will remain a message short.
P. G. Wodehouse
I didn’t know there were so many ghosts in [New] York.
Rich Fulcher
Was it like this? (Jesse) (Jesse made an inhuman ghost noise.) That sounds like Darth Vader choking on a chicken bone. (Gloria)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
Everything comes to us that belongs to us if we create the capacity to receive it. Every difficulty slurred over will be a ghost to disturb your repose later on. Emancipation from the bondage of the soil is no freedom for the tree.
Rabindranath Tagore
The Church is the Body of Christ begotten, unified, and indwelt by the Spirit, but forgetting the Spirit, men wrangle over limbs, functions, and orders. The Christian religion is hopeless without the Holy Ghost.
Samuel Chadwick
I feel like a ghost wandering in a world grown alien. I cannot cast out the old way of writing and I cannot acquire the new. I have made an intense effort to feel the musical manner of today, but it will not come to me.
Sergei Rachmaninoff
There are no gods here, no ghosts and spirits in America, there are no angels in America, no spiritual past, no racial past, there’s only the political, and the decoys and the ploys to maneuver around the inescapable battle of politics.
Tony Kushner
I think I would call Night Music a romantic comedy. I don’t know if you are familiar with an old movie called The Ghost and Mrs. Muir? It is an older film. It’s more about the romance than it is necessarily a horror flick.
Boti Bliss
I don’t want to use quotation marks anymore, I’ve gone back and forth with them. In Ghosts, I didn’t use them, for instance, all the way back in the early eighties.
Paul Auster
The more downtime we have, the more time you have to play games like ‘Ghost Recon Future Soldiers,’ so for me it’s a fun way to get integrated into video games and for me to have fun with my buddies and team up and go into battle with ’em, kind of like out there on court.
Kevin Love
Baptizing them in the name of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost: there are three distinct persons: in the Name, not names; there is one essence.
Thomas Adams
The worst of a modern stylish mansion is that it has no place for ghosts.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
Trane was the father. Pharoah was the son. I was the holy ghost.
Albert Ayler
You might as well baptize a bag of sand as a man, if not done in view of the remission of sins and getting of the Holy Ghost. Baptism by water is but half a baptism, and is good for nothing without the other half-that is, baptism of the Holy Ghost.
Joseph Smith, Jr.
I sometimes think about the life that my daughter will have with no mom. What does it mean to have a ghost mom? Not that I can do anything differently about it. But it’s an inferior version of what we had planned, you know? This was not our top choice.
Phil Elverum
There is a day coming when there will be a religion without repentance, a salvation without the Holy Ghost, a Heaven without Hell.
William Booth
But writers INVITE ghosts, maybe; along with actors and artists, they are the only totally accepted mediums of our society. They make worlds that never were, populate them with people who never existed, and then invite us to join them in their fantasies. And we do it, don’t we? Yes. We PAY to do it.
Stephen King
The psychedelic experience is not a journey into the human unconscious, or into the ghost bards of our human civilization. It’s a journey into the presence of the Gaian mind.
Terence McKenna
There’s no question that ghosts exist. The big question for me is whether ghosts are simply electronic imprints left in the walls or the atmosphere of places, or whether they do actually represent something from the afterlife.
Peter James
A ghost is someone who hasn’t made it – in other words, who died, and they don’t know they’re dead. So they keep walking around and thinking that you’re inhabiting their – let’s say, their domain. So they’re aggravated with you.
Sylvia Browne
The Spirit and the Word must be combined. If I look to the Spirit alone without the Word, I lay myself open to great delusions also. If the Holy Ghost guides us at all, He will do it according to the Scriptures and never contrary to them.
George Muller
I was such a sullen, angry, sad kid. I’m sure there are writers who have had happy childhoods, but what are you going to write about? No ghosts, no fear. I’m very happy that I had an unhappy and uncomfortable childhood.
Isabel Allende
Behind the corpse in the reservoir, behind the ghost on the links, Behind the lady who dances and the man who madly drinks, Under the look of fatigue, the attack of migraine and the sigh There is always another story, there is more than meets the eye.
W. H. Auden
Most angelic communications are felt or heard rather than seen.
Dallin H. Oaks
Derek (Jeter) told me the ghosts would show up eventually!
Aaron Boone
Fear paints pictures of ghosts and hangs them in the gallery of ignorance.
Robert Green Ingersoll
Never walk near the bed; to a ghost your ankle is your most vulnerable part-once in bed, you’re safe; he may lie around under the bed all night, but you’re safe as daylight. If you still have doubts pull the blanket over your head.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
[Adoption] could turn you into an exquisite comedian. Ask Richard Pryor’s ghost.
Keegan-Michael Key
Batman: a force of chaos in my world of perfect order. The dark side of the Soviet dream. Rumored to be a thousand murdered dissidents, they said he was a ghost. A walking dead man. A symbol of rebellion that would never fade as long as the system survived. Anarchy in black.
Mark Millar
It looks too new and pristine ever to have been read by anyone else, but it has been: it keeps falling open at the most delightful places as the ghost of its former owner points me to things I’ve never read before.
Helene Hanff
When they talk of ghosts of the dead who wander in the night with things still undone in life, they approximate my subjective experience of this life.
Jack Abbott
I have always been interested in the paranormal and afterlife, everything from ghosts to angels. I think that everyone has that curiosity of the great unknown.
Hilary Duff
Being a Christian is more like having your soul possessed by a spirit than having your mind clothed with new beliefs… It is like being haunted by the Holy Ghost.
Peter Kreeft
I believe in one God, the first and great cause of goodness. I also believe in Jesus Christ, the rebirth of the world. I also believe in the Holy Ghost, the comforter.
Daniel Morgan
The past is a ghost, the future a dream, and all we ever have is now.
Bill Cosby
There is a ghost That eats hankerchiefs; It keeps you company On all your travels.
Christian Morgenstern
For night’s swift dragons cut the clouds full fast, And yonder shines Aurora’s harbinger; At whose approach ghosts wandring here and there Troop home to church-yards…. For fear lest day should look their shames upon, They willfully exile themselves from light, And must for aye consort with black brow’d night.
William Shakespeare
I only ask to go where the Lord would have me go, and only to receive what the Lord would have me receive, knowing that more important than sight is the witness that one may have by the witness of the Holy Ghost to his soul that things are so and that Jesus is the Christ, a living personage.
Harold B. Lee
To be joyous is to be a madman in a world of sad ghosts.
Henry Miller
Discord or jealousy inhibits the ability of the Holy Ghost to teach us and inhibits our ability to receive light and truth. And the feelings of disappointment that invariably follow are the seeds of greater discord and faultfinding among those who expected a learning experience that did not come.
Henry B. Eyring
I have to say my favorite stories are ghost stories. I don’t like to see these made-up monster films or scary films with ghosts. It doesn’t do anything to me. But a real ghost story that someone tells me, that I like.
Sandra Cisneros
The Holy Ghost is a personage of Spirit: a separate and distinct member of the Godhead.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
The ghosts of things that never happened are worse than the ghosts of things that did.
Lucy Maud Montgomery
“Ghost of the Future,” he exclaimed, “I fear you more than any spectre I have seen. But as I know your purpose is to do me good, and as I hope to live to be another man from what I was, I am prepared to bear you company, and do it with a thankful heart. Will you not speak to me?”
Charles Dickens
I’ve never made love to a ghost but I have made love to men who are a few years away from becoming a ghost.
Chelsea Handler
Of all ghosts the ghosts of our old loves are the worst.
Arthur Conan Doyle
Because the pernicious opposition by Satan continues, the continuous enlightened guidance of the Holy Ghost is absolutely essential.
Keith K. Hilbig
I thought about telling him the truth: ‘Oh, nothing. Just having my soul exorcised so I can roam around purgatory, looking for the ghost of the dead cowboy who used to live in my bedroom.
Meg Cabot
When you’re really filled with the Holy Ghost it is impossible for those around you not to know it.
Rod Parsley
It is within you that the ghosts acquire voices.
Italo Calvino
God wants to see human beings, not ghosts who shun the world. . . . Our marriage must be a ‘yes’ to God’s earth. It must strengthen our resolve to do and accomplish something on earth. I fear that Christians who venture to stand on earth on only one leg will stand in heaven on only one leg too.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer
I can’t explain something I saw on holiday on Holy Island when I was about nine years old, but do you know what, it could have been my PE teacher dressed in a monk’s habit. I have no idea. I’m not a ghost person… it doesn’t mean there aren’t unexplained things; I just don’t think they’re ghosts.
Tom Goodman-Hill
As those who believe in the visibility of ghosts can easily see them, so it is always easy to see repulsive qualities in those we despise and hate.
Frederick Douglass
A Corpse or a Ghost- I’d sooner be one or t’other, square and fair, than a Ghost in a Corpse, which is my feelins at present.
William De Morgan
I think what it is a condition of human – of love. How important that is and integral that is too everybody even a ghost.
Boti Bliss
In all her intercourse with society, however, there was nothing that made her feel as if she belonged to it… She stood apart from mortal interests, yet close beside them, like a ghost that revisits the familiar fireside, and can no longer make itself seen or felt.
Nathaniel Hawthorne
I think ghosts would be some energy that hasn’t found a home yet. I don’t think they have any personal attachment to what is happening here. I’ve definitely been in a place where I’ve felt some energy that someone was watching me.
Jeordie White
I have not that joy in the Holy Ghost, no settled, lasting joy; nor have I such a peace as excludes the possibility either of fear or doubt.
John Wesley
I’m alone with the ghost of the swamp, somewhere near the weeping willows.
Steven Herrick
Bigotry murders religion to frighten fools with her ghost.
Charles Caleb Colton
The first ghost story I ever heard was from my mother.
Jenna Wortham
Not everybody believes in ghosts, but I do. Do you know what they are, Trisha? She had shaken her head slowly. Men and women who can’t get over their past . . . That’s what ghosts are.
Stephen King
Bitterly I wondered if Hardy was going to overshadow every relationship for the rest of my life, haunting me like a ghost. I didn’t know how to let him go. I’d never even had him.
Lisa Kleypas
Part of the story of Ghosts of Ascalon is how they got to that tentative truce where you can find humans and charr working together.
Jeff Grubb
If death itself were to die, would it have a ghost, and would the ghost of death visit the dead in the guise of someone alive, if only to fright them from any temptation to return?
William H. Gass
I saw a ghost once, about 20 years ago. It took the form of someone coming out of a sleeping body and sitting at the foot of the bed.
Peter Ackroyd
Women are surprised to see me on the street – like they’re seeing a ghost. There’s a lot of crying involved.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan
I went to school, but nobody really noticed me. I just came to school, didn’t dress up or anything – just a ghost. I just worked out and went out to the field and went the baseball route. That’s how I’ve always been my whole life.
Bryce Harper
Even though it’s meant to be the season of jollity and goodwill, there’s something delicious about the anticipation of a Christmassy ghost thrill.
Mark Gatiss
Once baptized, we then receive the Holy Ghost, a special gift from God, which is priceless beyond expression. The Holy Ghost bears witness of the Father and the Son and guides us to all truth and comforts us and gives us peace for the rest of our lives.
Hartman Rector, Jr.
And in turn I’m hostile guess you could call me anti-social. Niggaz shakin like they caught the holy ghost when I approach em.
Tupac Shakur
A man’s own conscience is his sole tribunal, and he should care no more for that phantom “opinion” than he should fear meeting a ghost if he crossed the churchyard at dark.
Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
In the bathroom, having taken my make-up off and opened my eyes, I always think there’s a ghost behind me. It feels like there’s a weird presence. Maybe it’s my brain reacting to me without make-up.
Mabel
Baseball is a game dominated by vital ghosts; it’s a fraternity, like no other we have of the active and the no longer so, the living and the dead.
Richard Gilman
I never saw a useful Christian who was not a student of the Bible. If a man neglects his Bible, he may pray and ask God to use him in His work; but God cannot make much use of him, for there is not much for the Holy Ghost to work upon.
Dwight L. Moody
Roz to Amelia (the house ghost): How considerate of you, after trying to kill me, to see that I don’t catch a cold.
Nora Roberts
It is – last stage of all When we are frozen up within, and quite The phantom of ourselves To hear the world applaud the hollow ghost Which blamed the living man
Matthew Arnold
The Holy Ghost is not a Sceptic, and He has not inscribed in our hearts uncertain opinions, but, rather, affirmations of the strongest sorts.
Martin Luther
I don’t believe in aliens. I don’t think aliens or ghosts like black people. We never get abducted; our houses never get haunted. It always happens in rural areas, where no ethnic people live. The day I see somebody from South Central Los Angeles say, ‘Man, I got abducted yesterday,’ then I’ll believe it.
Xzibit
Lord Snow wants to take my place now.’ He sneered. ‘I’d have an easier time teaching a wolf to juggle than you will training this aurochs.’ ‘I’ll take that wager, Ser Alliser’, Jon said. ‘I’d love to see Ghost juggle.
George R. R. Martin
All who call the Holy Ghost a creature we pity, on the ground that, by this utterance, they are falling into the unpardonable sin of blasphemy against Him.
Saint Basil
In the words of the ancients, one should make his decision within the space of seven breaths. It is a matter of being determined and having the spirit to break through to the other side.
Jim Jarmusch
If the Son was begotten by the Holy Ghost, it would be very dangerous to baptize and confirm females, and give the Holy Ghost to them, lest he should beget children, to be palmed upon the Elders by the people, bringing the Elders into great difficulties
Brigham Young
Do people in the Ku Klux Klan who die and come back as ghosts have to wear two sheets when attending the rally?
Dana Gould
Do I believe in ghosts?…I am prepared to consider evidence and accept it if it satisfies me.
M. R. James
For me, music was a cathartic way to free me from the nut of Ghost. After working on set for ‘Power’ for 14 hours, it allowed me to pour my sanity and insanity into the music.
Omari Hardwick
Hazel frowned. “Why that one?” “You don’t see the ghost?” Frank asked. “Ghost?” Nico asked. Okay… if Frank was seeing a ghost that the Underworld kids couldn’t see, something was definitely wrong.
Rick Riordan
Ghosts don’t haunt us. That’s not how it works. They’re present among us because we won’t let go of them.
Sue Grafton
Technically, a Ghost song could just be piano and vocals, but it could also be full, pounding, heavy-thrashing hard rock.
Tobias Forge
Are ye the ghosts of fallen leaves,
O flakes of snow,
For which, through naked trees, the winds
A-mourning go?
John B. Tabb
There was something about the Cleveland Play House that was the holiest place – you know, with the ghost light on the stage and the brick. It was just the most beautiful theater in the world.
Kathryn Hahn
a happy birthday this evening, I sat by an open window and read till the light was gone and the book was no more than a part of the darkness. I could easily have switched on a lamp, but I wanted to ride the day down into night, to sit alone, and smooth the unreadable page with the pale gray ghost of my hand
Ted Kooser
San Francisco can no longer afford to be a city divided between downtown and neighborhoods, with a downtown that becomes a ghost town when workers go home for the evening
Gavin Newsom
Do I believe in ghosts? No, but I’m afraid of them.
Marie Anne de Vichy-Chamrond, marquise du Deffand
Am I in the picture? Am I getting in or out of it? I could be a ghost, an animal or a dead body, not just this girl standing on the corner?
Francesca Woodman
Truly the universe is full of ghosts, not sheeted churchyard spectres, but the inextinguishable elements of individual life, which having once been, can never die, though they blend and change, and change again for ever.
H. Rider Haggard
But I’ve grown thoughtful now. And you have lost Your early-morning freshness of surprise At being so utterly mine: you’ve learned to fear The gloomy, stricken places in my soul, And the occasional ghosts that haunt my gaze.
Siegfried Sassoon
The holy angels live and qualify in the light, in the good quality wherein the Holy Ghost reigneth. The devils live and reign in the fierce wrathful quality, in the quality of fierceness and wrath, destruction or perdition.
Jakob Bohme
I drug your ghost across the country, and we plotted out my death. Every city and memory we whispered “Here is where you rest.” Well I was determined in Chicago but I dug my teeth into my knees And I settled for a telephone, sang into your machine: “You are my sunshine, my only sunshine.
Conor Oberst
