Emily Dickinson

Emily Elizabeth Dickinson (December 10, 1830 – May 15, 1886) was an American poet. While Dickinson was a prolific private poet, fewer than a dozen of her nearly 1,800 poems were published during her lifetime. Dickinson's poems are unique for the era in which she wrote; they contain short lines, typically lack titles, and often use slant rhyme as well as unconventional capitalization and punctuation.

The Heart wants what it wants - or else it does not care

Find ecstasy in life, the mere sense of living is joy enough.

Morning without you is a dwindled dawn.

If I read a book and it makes my whole body so cold no fire can ever warm me I know that is poetry.

I hope you love birds too. It is economical. It saves going to heaven.

Dogs are better than human beings, because they know but do not tell.

Saying nothing... sometimes says the most.

Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul - and sings the tunes without the words - and never stops at all.

There is no Frigate like a book to take us lands away, nor any coursers like a page of prancing Poetry.

If I can stop one heart from breaking I shall not live in vain.

It is better to be the hammer than the anvil.

Finite to fail but infinite to venture.

Fortune befriends the bold.

They might not need me, but they might. I'll let my head be just in sight, a smile as small as mine might be precisely their necessity.

Love is anterior to life posterior to death initial of creation and the exponent of breath.

The brain is wider than the sky.

Forever is composed of nows.

Not knowing when the dawn will come I open every door.

A word is dead when it is said some say. I say it just begins to live that day.

The soul should always stand ajar ready to welcome the ecstatic experience.
