"He has honor if he holds himself to an ideal of conduct though it is inconvenient, unprofitable, or dangerous to do so."
Walter Lippmann
Edgar Allan Poe Quotes
A gentleman with a pug nose is a contradiction in terms.
Edgar Allan Poe

A strong argument for the religion of Christ is this - that offences against Charity are about the only ones which men on their death-beds can be made - not to understand - but to feel - as crime.
Edgar Allan Poe

All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.
Edgar Allan Poe

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

I have great faith in fools; self-confidence my friends call it.
Edgar Allan Poe

I have no faith in human perfectability. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active - not more happy - nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago.
Edgar Allan Poe

I never can hear a crowd of people singing and gesticulating, all together, at an Italian opera, without fancying myself at Athens, listening to that particular tragedy, by Sophocles, in which he introduces a full chorus of turkeys, who set about bewailing the death of Meleager.
Edgar Allan Poe

I wish I could write as mysterious as a cat.
Edgar Allan Poe

In criticism I will be bold, and as sternly, absolutely just with friend and foe. From this purpose nothing shall turn me.
Edgar Allan Poe

In one case out of a hundred a point is excessively discussed because it is obscure; in the ninety-nine remaining it is obscure because it is excessively discussed.
Edgar Allan Poe

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.
Edgar Allan Poe

Man's real life is happy, chiefly because he is ever expecting that it soon will be so.
Edgar Allan Poe

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary...
Edgar Allan Poe

Poetry is the rhythmical creation of beauty in words.
Edgar Allan Poe

That man is not truly brave who is afraid either to seem or to be, when it suits him, a coward.
Edgar Allan Poe

That pleasure which is at once the most pure, the most elevating and the most intense, is derived, I maintain, from the contemplation of the beautiful.
Edgar Allan Poe

The best chess-player in Christendom may be little more than the best player of chess; but proficiency in whist implies capacity for success in all these more important undertakings where mind struggles with mind.
Edgar Allan Poe

The nose of a mob is its imagination. By this, at any time, it can be quietly led.
Edgar Allan Poe

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

There are few cases in which mere popularity should be considered a proper test of merit; but the case of song-writing is, I think, one of the few.
Edgar Allan Poe

There is something in the unselfish and self-sacrificing love of a brute, which goes directly to the heart of him who has had frequent occasion to test the paltry friendship and gossamer fidelity of mere Man.
Edgar Allan Poe

They who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.
Edgar Allan Poe

Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.
Edgar Allan Poe

To be thoroughly conversant with a man's heart, is to take our final lesson in the iron-clasped volume of despair.
Edgar Allan Poe

To vilify a great man is the readiest way in which a little man can himself attain greatness.
Edgar Allan Poe

We loved with a love that was more than love.
Edgar Allan Poe

Were I called on to define, very briefly, the term Art, I should call it 'the reproduction of what the Senses perceive in Nature through the veil of the soul.' The mere imitation, however accurate, of what is in Nature, entitles no man to the sacred name of 'Artist.'
Edgar Allan Poe

With me poetry has not been a purpose, but a passion.
