EDGAR ALLAN POE SAD QUOTES

“The Conqueror Worm”

“We loved with a love that was more than love.”

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

“I was never really insane except upon occasions when my heart was touched.”

“Words have no power to impress the mind without the exquisite horror of their reality.”

“Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.”

“And all I loved, I loved alone.”

“To die laughing must be the most glorious of all glorious deaths!”

“Every atom of your flesh is as dear to me as my own: in pain and sickness it would still be dear.”

“Years of love have been forgot in the hatred of a minute.”

“I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity.”

“I remained too much inside my own head and ended up losing my mind.”

“There is no beauty without some strangeness.”

“The boundaries which divide Life from Death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins?”

“It is by no means an irrational fancy that, in a future existence, we shall look upon what we think our present existence, as a dream.”

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

“They who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.”

“A dream within a dream.”

“From childhood’s hour I have not been as others were; I have not seen as others saw.”

“I remained too much inside my head and ended up losing my mind.”

“Is all that we see or seem but a dream within a dream?”

“I was never insane, except upon occasions when my heart was touched.”

“The death of a beautiful woman is unquestionably the most poetical topic in the world.”

“I have no faith in human perfectibility.”

“I have absolutely no pleasure in the stimulants in which I sometimes so madly indulge. It has not been in the pursuit of pleasure that I have periled life and reputation and reason. It has been the desperate attempt to escape from torturing memories, from a sense of insupportable loneliness and a dread of some strange impending doom.”
