"Local tales and superstitions thrive best in these sheltered, long settled retreats; but are trampled under foot, by the shifting throng that forms the population of most of our country places. Besides, there is no encouragement for ghosts in most of our villages, for they have scarce had time to finish their first nap, and turn themselves in their graves, before their surviving friends have traveled away from the neighborhood, so that when they turn out of a night to walk the rounds, they have no acquaintance left to call upon. This is perhaps the reason why we so seldom hear of ghosts except in our long established communities."
Legend of Sleepy Hollow
Washington Irving, 1820
- "A person is lucky to meet one Spirit in their lifetime..."
- "You misunderstand me. A person is lucky to meet *only* one Spirit in their lifetime."
