How strange that nature does knock, and yet does not intrude! ~ Letter to Mrs. J.S. Cooper.
We turn, not older with years, but newer every day.
The Possible's slow fuse is lit/By the imagination.
If I can stop one heart from breaking, / I shall not live in vain./ If I can ease one life from aching,/ Or cool one pain, / Or help one fainting robin/ Unto his nest again,/ I shall not live in vain.
Faith--is the pierless bridge supporting what We see unto the scene that we do not. ~ Faith—is the Pierless Bridge
A letter always seemed to me like immortality because it is the mind alone without corporeal friend. ~ Letters of Emily Dickinson
A presence of departed acts at window and at door.
A wounded dear... leaps the highest.
Beauty is not caused. It is.
Dying is a wild night and a new road.
Tell all the truth but tell it slant.
Find ecstasy in life; the mere sense of living is joy enough.
I cannot live with You / It would be Life / And Life is over there / Behind the Shelf. ~ I Cannot Live With You
A little Madness in the Spring Is wholesome even for the King.
A word is dead/When it is said./Some say./I say it just/Begins to live/That day.
Dogs are better than human beings because they know but do not tell.
Dwell in possibility.
Finite to fail, but infinite to venture.
Forever is composed of nows.
Glee! The great storm is over!
Much Madness is divinest Sense.
