With me poetry has not been a purpose, but a passion.
Edgar Allan Poe
I have great faith in fools; self-confidence my friends call it.
All religion, my friend, is simply evolved out of fraud, fear, greed, imagination, and poetry.
I would define, in brief, the poetry of words as the rhythmical creation of Beauty.
Science has not yet taught us if madness is or is not the sublimity of the intelligence.
They who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.
I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity.
Words have no power to impress the mind without the exquisite horror of their reality.
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.
