Your Inspirational Quotes for October from Gary's Gems

Welcome to October – the month where things go bump in the night. Halloween, short for Hallow’s Eve or Hallows’ Evening has a long and interesting history.

Did you know that Ireland is considered its birthplace – who knew?

Here’s some Halloween trivia:

The word ‘witch’ comes from the old English word ‘Wicce’ which means ‘wise woman’.

The first Jack O’Lanterns were actually turnips.

The largest recorded pumpkin weighed in at 836 pounds. And believe it or not, people who suffer from a fear of Halloween have Samhainophobia.  Sounds like you have nothing to fear but fear itself, to me!

And the thought I’d like to leave you with this month is:

“Let me explain a couple of things.

Time is short.  That’s the first thing.

For the weasel, time is a weasel.

For the hero, time is heroic.

For the whore, time is just another trick.  

If you’re gentle, your time is gentle.

If you’re in a hurry, time flies. 

Time is a servant if you are its master.

Time is your god if you are its dog.

We are the creators of time, the victims of time, and the killers of time.

Time is timeless.

That’s the second thing.

You are the clock.”

The character of Emit Fiesti (anagram for Time itself) … from the movie Faraway so Close … by Wim Wenders
