Creative Quotations from . . .
Emily Dickinson
(1830-1886) born on
Dec 10
US poet. She was a reclusive stylist who combined spare lyricism with unorthodox diction.
Beauty is not caused. It is.

"Hope" is the thing with feathers --
That perches in the soul --
And sings the tunes without the words --
And never stops --at all --.
"Faith" is a fine invention
When Gentleman can see --
But Microscopes are prudent
In an Emergency
'Tis so much joy! 'Tis so much joy! If I should fail, what poverty! And yet, as poor as I Have ventured all upon a throw; Have gained! Yes! Hesitated so this side the victory!
Anger as soon as fed is dead -
'Tis starving makes it fat.
