Edgar Allen Poe quotes
All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.
Come! let the burial rite be read–the funeral song be sung!—An anthem for the queenliest dead that ever died so young—A dirge for her the doubly dead in that she died so young.
Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.
I have great faith in fools – self-confidence my friends will call it.
Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.
Yes, Heaven is thine; but this
Is a world of sweets and sours;
Our flowers are merely—flowers.
Men have called me mad; but the question is not yet settled, whether madness is or is not the loftiest intelligence— whether much that is glorious— whether all that is profound— does not spring from disease of thought— from moods of mind exalted at the expense of the general intellect.

To elevate the soul, poetry is necessary.
I was never kinder to the old man than during the whole week before I killed him.
I was never really insane except upon occasions when my heart was touched.
It was night, and the rain fell; and falling, it was rain, but, having fallen, it was blood.
Poetry is the rhythmical creation of beauty in words.
It is more than probable that I am not understood; but I fear, indeed, that it is in no manner possible to convey to the mind of the merely general reader, an adequate idea of that nervous intensity of interest with which, in my case, the powers of meditation (not to speak technically) busied and buried themselves, in the contemplation of even the most ordinary objects of the universe.
It is with literature as with law or empire — an established name is an estate in tenure, or a throne in possession.
I have absolutely no pleasure in the stimulants in which I sometimes so madly indulge. It has not been in the pursuit of pleasure that I have periled life and reputation and reason. It has been the desperate attempt to escape from torturing memories, from a sense of insupportable loneliness and a dread of some strange impending doom.

Because I feel that, in the Heavens above, The angels, whispering to one another, Can find, among their burning terms of love, None so devotional as that of ‘Mother.’
Literature is the most noble of professions. In fact, it is about the only one fit for a man. For my own part, there is no seducing me from the path.
I remained too much inside my head and ended up losing my mind.
That which you mistake for madness is but an over acuteness of the senses.
Every poem, it is said, should inculcate a moral; and by this moral is the poetical merit of the work to be adjudged. We Americans, especially, have patronized this happy idea; and we Bostonians, very especially have developed it in full. We have taken it into our heads that to write a poem simply for the poem’s sake, and to acknowledge such to have been our design, would be to confess ourselves radically wanting in the true Poetic dignity and force; but the simple fact is, that, would we but permit ourselves to look into our own souls, we should immediately there discover that under the sun there neither exists nor can exist any work more thoroughly dignified, more supremely noble, than this very poem—this poem per se—this poem which is a poem and nothing more—this poem written solely for the poem’s sake.
For passionate love is still divine / I lov’d her as an angel might / With ray of the all living light / Which blazes upon Edis’ shrine.

O, human love! thou spirit given,
On Earth, of all we hope in Heaven!
I intend to put up with nothing that I can put down.
Convinced myself, I seek not to convince.
Sleep, those little slices of death — how I loathe them.
From childhood’s hour I have not been / As others were—I have not seen / As others saw—I could not bring / My passions from a common spring.
The customs of the world are so many conventional follies.
Yet mad I am not…and very surely do I not dream.
I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity.
Words have no power to impress the mind without the exquisite horror of their reality.
Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
And all my days are trances,
And all my nightly dreams
Are where thy grey eye glances,
And where thy footstep gleams–
In what ethereal dances,
By what eternal streams.
