Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December;

And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.

Eagerly, I wished the morrow; – vainly I had sought to borrow

From my books surcease of sorrow – sorrow for the lost Leonore –

For the rare and radiant maiden who the angels name Lenore –

Nameless here for evermore.


Marking a book is literally an experience of your differences or
agreements with the author. It is the highest respect you can pay him.


 

It was many and many a year ago,

In a kingdom by the sea,

That a maiden there lived whom you may know

By the name of Annabel Lee;–

And this maiden she lived with no other thought

Than to love and be loved by me.


How many good books suffer neglect through the inefficiency of their beginnings!

Edgar Allan Poe Thoughts/Quotes on Beauty

Poetry is the rhythmical creation of beauty in words.


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.


Beauty is the sole legitimate province of the poem.


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

Edgar Allan Poe Thoughts/Quotes on Dreams

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


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


Yet mad I am not…and very surely do I not dream.


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

Edgar Allan Poe Thoughts/Quotes on Heart

Let my heart be still a moment and this mystery explore.


I was never really insane except upon occasions when my heart was touched.


Sometimes I’m terrified of my heart; of its constant hunger
for whatever it is it wants. The way it stops and starts.


There are chords in the hearts of the most reckless which cannot be touched without emotion.

 

Edgar Allan Poe Thoughts/Quotes on Heaven

But our love was stronger by far than the love Of those who were older than we Of many far wiser than we And neither the angels in heaven above, Nor the demons down under the sea, Can ever dissever my soul from the soul Of the beautiful Annabel Lee.


In the Heaven’s above, the angels, whispering to one another, can find,
among their burning terms of love, none so devotional as that of ‘Mother.


It would be mockery to call such dreariness heaven at all.


Yes, Heaven is thine; but this Is a world of sweets and sours; Our flowers are merely—flowers.

Inspirational Thoughts/Quotes by Edgar Allan Poe

And so being young and dipped in folly I fell in love with melancholy.


I wish I could write as mysterious as a cat.


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.

Edgar Allan Poe Thoughts/Quotes on Life

And so being young and dipped in folly I fell in love with melancholy.


The best things in life make you sweaty.


The ninety and nine are with dreams, content but the hope of the world made new,
is the hundredth man who is grimly bent on making those dreams come true.


All religion, my friend, is simply evolved out of fraud, fear, greed, imagination, and poetry.

Edgar Allan Poe Thoughts/Quotes on Literature

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary.


It will be found, in fact, that the ingenious are always fanciful,
and the truly imaginative never otherwise than analytic.


I have, indeed, no abhorrence of danger, except in its absolute effect – in terror.


Literature is the most noble of professions. In fact, it is about the only one fit for a man.

Edgar Allan Poe Thoughts/Quotes on Love

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


Years of love have been forgot, In the hatred of a minute.


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


We loved with a love that was more than love.

Edgar Allan Poe Thoughts/Quotes on Moon

For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams of the beautiful Annabel Lee


And, all at once, the moon arouse through the thin ghastly mist, And was crimson in color.


If I venture to displace … the microscopical speck of dust… on the point of my finger,… I have done a deed which shakes the Moon in her path, which causes the Sun to be no longer the Sun, and which alters forever the destiny of multitudinous myriads of stars.


Over the Mountains Of the Moon, Down the Valley of the Shadow,
Ride, boldly ride,” The shade replied,- “If you seek for Eldorado.

Melancholy is … the most legitimate of all the poetical tones.


All religion, my friend, is simply evolved out of fraud, fear, greed, imagination, and poetry.

Edgar Allan Poe Thoughts/Quotes on Short Stories

I was cautious in what I said before the young lady; for I could not be sure that she was sane; and, in fact, there was a certain restless brilliancy about her eyes that half led me to imagine she was not.


A short story is “a short prose narrative, requiring from a half hour, to one or two hours in its perusal…having conceived, with deliberate care, a certain unique or single effect to be wrought out.


A short story must have a single mood and every sentence must build towards it.

Edgar Allan Poe Thoughts/Quotes on Soul

The agony of my soul found vent in one loud, long and final scream of despair.


And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor, Shall be lifted — Nevermore!


Lord help my poor soul.


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

Edgar Allan Poe Thoughts/Quotes on Tragedy

Out- out are the lights- out all! And, over each quivering form, The curtain, a funeral pall, Comes down with the rush of a storm, While the angels, all pallid and wan, Uprising, unveiling, affirm That the play is the tragedy, “Man,” And its hero the Conqueror Worm.


I never can hear a crowd of people singing and gesticulating, all together, at an Italian opera, without fancying myself at Athens, listening to that particular tragedy, by Sophocles, in which he introduces a full chorus of turkeys, who set about bewailing the death of Meleager.


Finally on Sunday morning, October 7, 1849, “He became quiet and seemed to rest for a short time. Then, gently, moving his head,” he said, “Lord help my poor soul.” As he had lived so he died-in great misery and tragedy.


That the play is the tragedy, “Man,” And its hero, the Conqueror Worm.
