A Quote by Emily Dickinson on books, spirit, and words

He ate and drank the precious words,
His spirit grew robust;
He knew no more that he was poor,
Nor that his frame was dust.
He danced along the dingy days,
And this bequest of wings
Was but a book.  What liberty
A loosened spirit brings!

A Quote by Emily Dickinson on consciousness, eternity, pain, sea, and time

You left me boundaries of pain
Capacious as the sea,
Between eternity and time,
Your consciousness and me.

A Quote by Emily Dickinson on pain

in

Pain has an element of blank;
It cannot recollect
When it began, or if there were
A day when it was not.

It has no future but itself,
Its infinite realms contain
Its past, enlightened to perceive
New periods of pain.

A Quote by Emily Dickinson on loss and moon

in

Each that we lose takes a part of us;
   A crescent still abides,
Which like the moon, some turbid night,
   Is summoned by the tides.

A Quote by Emily Dickinson on self and people

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

How dreary - to be - Somebody!
How public - like a Frog -
To tell one's name - the livelong June -
To an admiring Bog!
