Halloween Words of Wisdom from Lord Lovecraft

cthulu

(art is by Raymond Bayless)

“The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.”

Ennio Morricone – A Silhouette of Doom

“It lumbered slobberingly into sight and gropingly squeezed Its gelatinous green immensity through the black doorway into the tainted outside air of that poison city of madness…The Thing cannot be described – there is no language for such abysms of shrieking and immemorial lunacy, such eldritch contradictions of all matter, force, and cosmic order. A mountain walked or stumbled.

If I say that my somewhat extravagant imagination yielded simultaneous pictures of an octopus, a dragon, and a human caricature, I shall not be unfaithful to the spirit of the thing. A pulpy, tentacled head surmounted a grotesque and scaly body with rudimentary wings; but it was the general outline of the whole which made it most shockingly frightful.” 

Repugnant – Spawn of Pure Malevolence

“That is not dead which can eternal lie,
And with strange aeons even death may die.” 

Skinny Puppy – Death

“In his house at R’lyeh, dead Cthulu waits dreaming.” 

Fields of The Nephilim – Moonchild

“Toil without song is like a weary journey without an end.”

Suicide – Ghost Rider

“Bunch together a group of people deliberately chosen for strong religious feelings, and you have a practical guarantee of dark morbidities expressed in crime, perversion, and insanity.”

Girls Names – Seance on a Wet Afternoon

“The process of delving into the black abyss is to me the keenest form of fascination.”

Magda – Get Down Goblin

“If religion were true, its followers would not try to bludgeon their young into an artificial conformity; but would merely insist on their unbending quest for truth, irrespective of artificial backgrounds or practical consequences.”

Amorphous Androgynous – The Witch Hunt

“We shall see that at which dogs howl in the dark, and that at which cats prick up their ears after midnight.”

Type O Negative – Wolf Moon (including Zoanthropic Paranoia)
