Edgar Allan Poe Quotes on Etsy

A few of my personal favorite Poe quotes....

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

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

I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity.

“I have great faith in fools; self-confidence my friends call it.

“I wish I could write as mysterious as a cat.”

I would define, in brief, the poetry of words as the rhythmical creation of Beauty.”

“If you wish to forget anything on the spot, make a note that this thing is to be remembered.

The true genius shudders at incompleteness - and usually prefers silence to saying something which is not everything it should be.”

“There is an eloquence in true enthusiasm.

And on Etsy....

  “Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore —
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
"'Tis some visiter," I muttered, "tapping at my chamber door —
Only this and nothing more” – The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe
