„I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone —
And all I lov'd — I lov'd alone —“

— Edgar Allan Poe
Context: From childhood's hour I have not been As others were — I have not seen As others saw — I could not bring My passions from a common spring — From the same source I have not taken My sorrow — I could not awaken My heart to joy at the same tone — And all I lov'd — I lov'd alone "[http://gothlupin.tripod.com/valone.html Alone]", l. 1-8 (written 1829, published 1875).

„And now have I not told you that what you mistake for madness is but over-acuteness of the senses?“

— Edgar Allan Poe
Context: And now have I not told you that what you mistake for madness is but over-acuteness of the senses? -- now, I say, there came to my ears a low, dull, quick sound, such as a watch makes when enveloped in cotton. I knew that sound too. It was the beating of the old man's heart. It increased my fury, as the beating of a drum stimulates the soldier into courage.

„I have reached these lands but newly
From an ultimate dim Thule —
From a wild weird clime that lieth, sublime,
Out of SPACE — out of TIME.“

— Edgar Allan Poe
Context: By a route obscure and lonely, Haunted by ill angels only, Where an Eidolon, named NIGHT, On a black throne reigns upright, I have reached these lands but newly From an ultimate dim Thule — From a wild weird clime that lieth, sublime, Out of SPACE — out of TIME. "Dreamland", st. 1 (1845).

„Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,“

— Edgar Allan Poe
Context: 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. Stanza 1.

„Thou wast that all to me, love,
For which my soul did pine —“

— Edgar Allan Poe
Context: Thou wast that all to me, love, For which my soul did pine — A green isle in the sea, love, A fountain and a shrine, All wreathed with fairy fruits and flowers, And all the flowers were mine. "To One in Paradise", st. 1 (1834).

„Thy grace, thy more than beauty,
Shall be an endless theme of praise,
And love — a simple duty.“

— Edgar Allan Poe
Context: Thou wouldst be loved? — then let thy heart From its present pathway part not! Being everything which now thou art, Be nothing which thou art not. So with the world thy gentle ways, Thy grace, thy more than beauty, Shall be an endless theme of praise, And love — a simple duty. "[http://www.readbookonline.net/readOnLine/595/ To Frances S. Osgood]" (1845).

„It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden lived whom you may know
By the name of Annabel Lee; —“

— Edgar Allan Poe
Context: It was many and many a year ago, In a kingdom by the sea, That a maiden lived whom you may know By the name of Annabel Lee; — And this maiden she lived with no other thought Than to love and be loved by me. St. 1.
