“Why do you persist in this belief that punishment must be meted out from either God or Satan when the most relentless, merciless punisher is that within? For we can never escape its scourges and lashes.”
John F.D. Taff, The Bell Witch

“It is no test to love those who merit it. The test is in loving those who do not.”
John F.D. Taff, The Bell Witch

“But though a thing may transcend science, it may not transgress it.”
John F.D. Taff, The Bell Witch

Polls

As I mentioned, I wanted to read a witch themed book for our scary October read. However, I had a bit of trouble finding really scary witch themed books, but that's okay. We'll just go with mildly creepy...perhaps. This is a quick poll, as my Season of the Witch event at Castle Macabre hinges on this pick. Last day to vote is this Sunday.
