Poe, Edgar A. QUOTES

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

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

  • Experience has shown, and a true philosophy will always show, that a vast, perhaps the larger portion of the truth arises from the seemingly irrelevant.

  • We loved with a love that was more than love.



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

  • 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?

  • Words have no power to impress the mind without the exquisite horror of their reality.

  • I have no faith in human perfectability. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active - not more happy - nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago.

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