Edgar Allan Poe

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.”
