"The chief part of the stories, however, turned upon the favorite spectre of Sleepy Hollow, the Headless Horseman, who had been heard several times of late, patrolling the country; and, it was said, tethered his horse nightly among the graves in the churchyard." ~W. Irving, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
"The Horseman comes. And tonight he comes for you."
~Lady Van Tassel (Sleepy Hollow movie)
