Edgar Allen Poe quotes page 3

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.
Edgar Allan Poe

There is an eloquence in true enthusiasm.
Edgar Allan Poe

We should bear in mind that, in general, it is the object of our newspapers rather to create a
sensation - to make a point - than to further the cause of truth.
Edgar Allan Poe

But as in ethics, evil is a consequence of good, so in fact, out of joy is sorrow born. Either
the memory of past bliss is the anguish of today, or the agonies which are have their origin in
the ecstasies which might have been.
Edgar Allan Poe

I would define, in brief, the poetry of words as the rhythmical creation of beauty. Its sole
arbiter is taste.
Edgar Allan Poe

But our love it 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.
Edgar Allan Poe
