Post what you feel is a scary line from literature.
Kate, thou must not look so sour.
It is my fashion when I see a crab!
“With a mocking smile, he placed one hand upon my shoulder and, holding me tight, bared my throat with the other, saying as he did so: “First, a little refreshment to reward my exertions.”
—Bram Stoker, Dracula
This one always scared me as a kid.
So, the next night, I went out.
I had to do an errand,
Had to pick a peck of Snide
In a dark and gloomy Snide-field
That was almost nine miles wide.
I said, “I do not fear those pants
With nobody inside them.”
I said, and said, and said those words.
I said them. But I lied them.
Then I reached inside a Snide bush
And the next thing that I knew,
I felt my hand touch someone!
I didn't think anyone else knew this classic. It still scares me when I read it to the grandkids
“Without passion or haste, they shot their prisoners, who were forced to approach the trench one by one and offer their necks. Infants were tossed into the air and used as targets for the machine guns.”
— Elie Weisel, Night
For of all sad words of tongue or pen
The saddest are these "It might have been"
Maud Muller - by John Greenleaf Whittier
Maud Muller is, the saddest poem I have ever read. The line, "It might have been" is such a sad, yea, tragic line that can be applied to so many situations.
