Edgar Allan Poe 1809 – 1849 was an American author known for writing poetry and short stories. His poem ‘The Raven’ published in 1845 made him a household name. 
‘Sleep, those little slices of death – how I loathe them’ 
All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream’ 
‘I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity’ 
‘Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night’ 
‘I remained too much inside my head and ended up losing my mind’ 
‘I wish I could write as mysterious as a cat’ 
‘There are some secrets which do not permit themselves to be told’ 
‘It is a happiness to wonder; it is a happiness to dream’ 
‘Invisible things are the only realities’ 
‘Deep in the darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before’ 
‘Words have no power to impress the mind without the exquisite horror of their reality’ 
‘The true genius shudders at incompleteness – and usually prefers silence to saying something which is not everything it should be’ 
‘Never to suffer would never to have been blessed’ 
‘If you wish to forget anything on the spot, make a note that this thing is to be remembered’ 
‘I would define, in brief, the poetry of words as the rhythmical creation of Beauty’ 
‘We loved with a love that was more than love’ 
‘Of puns it has been said that those who most dislike them are those who are at least able to utter them’ 
‘To die laughing must be the most glorious of all glorious deaths’ 
‘I dread the events of the future, not in themselves but in their results’ 
‘Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and wary’
