„From childhood's hour I have not been
As others were — I have not seen
As others saw —“

— 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).

„You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;“

— Edgar Allan Poe
Context: You are not wrong, who deem That my days have been a dream; Yet if hope has flown away In a night, or in a day, In a vision, or in none, Is it therefore the less gone? All that we see or seem Is but a dream within a dream. "A Dream Within a Dream" (1849).

„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.
