Barcelona is a very old city in which you can feel the weight of history; it is haunted by history. You cannot walk around it without perceiving it.
Carlos Ruiz Zafon
A lot of the problems I had with fame I was bringing on myself. A lot of self-loathing, a lot of woe-is-me. Now I'm learning to see the positive side of things, instead of, like, 'I can't go to Kmart. I can't take my kids to the haunted house.'

When I was a little kid, I wrote this play about all these characters living in a haunted house. There was a witch who lived there, and a mummy.

Stephen Vincent Benet
