Allan Poe

Famous quotes by allan poe:

    Taught me my alphabet to say,
    To lisp my very earliest word,
    —Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849)

    like a ghastly rapid river,
    Through the pale door
    A hideous throng rush out forever,
    And laugh—but smile no more.
    —Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849)

    Ah, broken is the golden bowl! the spirit flown forever!
    Let the bell toll!—a saintly soul floats on the Stygian river;
    And, Guy De Vere, hast thou no tear?—weep now or never more!
    See! on yon drear and rigid bier low lies thy love, Lenore!
    —Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849)

    What can be more soothing, at once to a man’s Pride, and to his Conscience, than the conviction that, in taking vengeance on his enemies for injustice done him, he has simply to do them justice in return?
    —Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849)

    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 (1809–1845)
