Quotes by Emily Dickinson
Forever is composed of nows.
Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul.
And sings the tune
Without the words,
and never stops at all.
I dwell in possibility...
My life closed twice before its' close-
It yet remains to see
If Immortality unveil
A third event to me. So huge, so hopeless to concieve As these that twice befell. Parting is all we know of heaven, And all we need of hell.
One need not be a chamber to be haunted;
One need not be a house;
The brain has corridors surpassing
They say that God is everywhere, and yet we always think of Him as somewhat of a recluse.
Anger as soon as fed is dead-
'Tis starving makes it fat.
Fortune befriends the bold.
I do not like the man who squanders life for fame; give me the man who living makes a name.
Love is anterior to life, posterior to death, initial of creation, and the exponent of breath.
