A Quote by Emily Dickinson on consciousness and time

There is a Zone whose even Years
No Solstice interrupt -
Whose Sun constructs perpetual Noon
Whose perfect Seasons wait -

Whose Summer set in Summer, till
The Centuries of June
And Centuries of August cease
And Consciousness - is Noon.

A Quote by Emily Dickinson on infinity, life, and space

The Life we have is very great.
The Life that we shall see
Surpasses it, we know, because
It is Infinity,
But when all Space has been beheld
And all Dominion shown
The smallest Human Heart's extent
Reduces it to none.

And of the breeze, amen!

A Quote by Emily Dickinson on search, stars, and trees

A Murmur in the Trees - to note -
Not loud enough - for Wind -
A Star - not far enough to seek -
Nor near enough - to find -

A Quote by Emily Dickinson on hope, soul, and words

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all,

And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.

I've heard it in the chillest land,
And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.

A Quote by Emily Dickinson on intuition

Presentiment - is that long Shadow - on the Lawn -
Indicative that Suns go down -

The Notice to the startled Grass
That Darkness - is about to pass -

A Quote by Emily Dickinson on words

in

A word is dead
When it is said,
   Some say,
I say it just
Begins to live
   That day.

A Quote by Emily Dickinson on blue

in

It might be easier
   To fail with land in sight,
That gain my blue peninsula
   To perish of delight.
