Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “The people have nothing to do with the laws but to obey them.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “The depth lies in the valleys where we seek her, and not upon the mountain-tops where she is found.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “I need scarcely observe that a poem deserves its title only inasmuch as it excites, by elevating the soul. The value of the poem is in the ratio of this elevating excitement. But all excitements are, through a psychal necessity, transient.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “A strong argument for the religion of Christ is this – that offences against Charity are about the only ones which men on their death-beds can be made – not to understand – but to feel – as crime.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “And thus when by Poetry, or when by Music, the most entrancing of the poetic moods, we find ourselves melted into tears, we weep then, not... through excess of pleasure, but through a certain petulant, impatient sorrow at our inability to grasp now, wholly, here on earth, at once and forever, those divine and raptorous joys of which through the poem, or through the music, we attain to but brief and indeterminate glimpses.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “With me poetry has been not a purpose, but a passion; and the passions should be held in reverence: they must not they cannot at will be excited, with an eye to the paltry compensations, or the more paltry commendations, of mankind.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “What chance – what one event brought this evil thing to pass, bear with me while I relate. Death approaches; and the shadow which foreruns him has thrown a softening influence over my spirit. I long, in passing through the dim valley, for the sympathy – I had nearly said for the pity – of my fellow men. I would fain have them believe that I have been, in some measure, the slave of circumstances beyond human control.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “My heart beat calmly as that of one who slumbers in innocence.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “To see distinctly the machinery – the wheels and pinions – of any work of Art is, unquestionably, of itself, a pleasure, but one which we are able to enjoy only just in proportion as we do not enjoy the legitimate effect designed by the artist.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “Imperceptibly the love of these discords grew upon me as my love of music grew stronger.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “It is the desire of the moth for the star. It is no mere appreciation of the Beauty before us – but a wild effort to reach the Beauty above. Inspired by an ecstatic prescience of the glories beyond the grave, we struggle, by multiform combinations among the things and thoughts of Time, to attain a portion of that Loveliness whose very elements, perhaps, appertain to eternity alone.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “All in vain; because Death, in approaching him had stalked with his black shadow before him, and enveloped the victim. And it was the mournful influence of the unperceived shadow that caused him to feel – although he neither saw nor heard – to feel the presence of my head within the room.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “The greater amount of truth is impulsively uttered; thus the greater amount is spoken, not written.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “Misery is manifold. The wretchedness of earth is multiform.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “It would be mockery to call such dreariness heaven at all.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “With my aversion to this cat, however, its partiality for myself seemed to increase.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “How often we forget all time, when lone Admiring Nature’s universal throne; Her woods – her wilds – her mountains – the intense Reply of HERS to OUR intelligence!”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “I have often been reproached with the aridity of my genius; a deficiency of imagination has been imputed to me as a crime; and the Pyrrhonism of my opinions has at all times rendered me notorious.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “Alas! for that accursed time They bore thee o’er the billow, From love to titled age and crime, And an unholy pillow! From me, and from our misty clime, Where weeps the silver willow!”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “Children are never too tender to be whipped. Like tough beefsteaks, the more you beat them, the more tender they become.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “Leave my loneliness unbroken! – quit the bust above my door!”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “To be thoroughly conversant with Man’s heart, is to take our final lesson in the iron-clasped volume of Despair.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “No man who ever lived knows any more about the hereafter than you and I.”

Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “The Bostonians are really, as a race, far inferior in point of anything beyond mere intellect to any other set upon the continent of North America. They are decidedly the most servile imitators of the English it is possible to conceive.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “In other words, I believed, and still do believe, that truth, is frequently of its own essence, superficial, and that, in many cases, the depth lies more in the abysses where we seek her, than in the actual situations wherein she may be found.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “The memory of a past happiness is the anguish of today.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “The rudiment of verse may, possibly, be found in the spondee.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “Proprieties of place, and especially of time, are the bugbears which terrify mankind from the contemplation of the magnificent.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “Chi sogna di giorno conosce molte cose che sfuggono a chi sogna solo di notte.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “He impaired his vision by holding the object too close. He might see, perhaps, one or two points with unusual clearness, but in so doing he, necessarily, lost sight of the matter as a whole. Thus there is such a thing as being too profound. Truth is not always in a well. In fact, as regards the more important knowledge, I do believe that she is invariably superficial. The depth lies in the valleys where we seek her, and not upon the mountain-tops where she is found.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “A fearful instance of the ill consequences attending upon irascibility – alive, with the qualifications of the dead – dead, with the propensities of the living – an anomaly on the face of the earth – being very calm, yet breathless.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “If the propositions of this Discourse are tenable, the “state of progressive collapse” is precisely that state in which alone we are warranted in considering All Things.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “It was night, and the rain fell; and falling, it was rain, but, having fallen, it was blood. And I stood in the morass among the tall and the rain fell upon my head-and the lilies sighed one unto the other in the solemnity of their desolation.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “All in the immediate vicinity of the ship, is the blackness of eternal night, and a chaos of foamless water; but, about a league on either side of us, may be seen, indistinctly and at intervals, stupendous ramparts of ice, towering away into the desolate sky, and looking like the walls of the universe.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “The days have never been when thou couldst love me – but her whom in life thou didst abhor, in death thou shalt adore.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “The secret of a poem, no less than a jest’s prosperity, lies in the ear of him that hears it.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “No thinking being lives who, at some luminous point of his life of thought, has not felt himself lost amid the surges of futile efforts at understanding, or believing, that anything exists greater than his own soul.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “Luchesi cannot tell amontillado from a sherry.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “The realities of the world affected me as visions, and as visions only, while the wild ideas of the land of dreams became, in turn, – not the material of my every-day existence – but in very deed that existence utterly and solely in itself.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “So resolute is the world to despise anything which carries with it an air of simplicity.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “These were the days when my heart was volcanic.”

Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “Quoth the raven “Nevermore.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “The first action of my life was the taking hold of my nose with both hands. My mother saw this and called me a genius:-my father wept for joy and presented me with a treatise on Nosology. This I mastered before I was breeched.”
Edgar Allan Poe Quote: “Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night. In their gray visions they obtain glimpses of eternity, and thrill, in waking, to find that they have been upon the verge of the great secret. In snatches, they learn something of the wisdom which is of good, and more of the mere knowledge which is of evil.”
