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.
I'm Nobody! Who are you?
Are you -- Nobody -- Too?
Then there's a pair of us?
Don't tell! they'd advertise -- you know!

I dwell in Possibility --
A fairer House than Prose --
More numerous of Windows --
Superior --for Doors --.
Truth is so rare that it is delightful to tell it.
We turn not older with years, but newer every day.
To fight aloud is very brave,
But gallanter, I know,
Who charge within the bosom
The Cavalry of Woe.
