„What might we profitably do on Halloween? Look backward, and consider those who went before us. The road ahead is inevitably dark, but to see where we have been may offer unexpected hints about who we are, and where we should be heading. Triviality about the past leads certainly toward a trivial future.“
— Robertson Davies Canadian journalist, playwright, professor, critic, and novelist 1913 - 1995
