poe always knows

“Beauty of whatever kind, in its supreme development, invariably excites the sensitive soul to tears.”

“There is no exquisite beauty… without some strangeness in the proportion.”

“The true genius shudders at incompleteness — imperfection — and usually prefers silence to saying the something which is not everything that should be said.”

“It is a happiness to wonder; — it is a happiness to dream.”

“Every poem should remind the reader that they are going to die.”

“There is an eloquence in true enthusiasm.”

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

“When I was young and filled with folly, I fell in love with melancholy.”

-Edgar Allan Poe (fellow INFP)
