Edgar Allan Poe - Copy

Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849)


“Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.” 


“I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity.” 


“Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things that escape those who dream only at night.” 


“The boundaries which divide Life from Death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins?” 


“All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.” 


“Beauty of whatever kind, in its supreme development, invariably excites the sensitive soul to tears.” 


“The true genius shudders at incompleteness and usually prefers silence to saying something which is not everything it should be.” 


“I wish I could write as mysterious as a cat.” 


“That pleasure which is at once the most pure, the most elevating and the most intense, is derived, I maintain, from the contemplation of the beautiful.”
