Emily Dickinson
Quotations


After great pain, a formal feeling comes.

If I read a book and it makes my whole body so cold no fire can ever warm me, I know that is poetry. If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry. These are the only ways I know it. Is there any other way?

Truth is such a rare thing, it is delightful to tell it.

Friday I tasted life. It was a vast morsel. A Circus passed the house--still I feel the red in my mind though the drums are out. The Lawn is full of south and the odors tangle, and I hear to-day for the first time the river in the tree.
