"Poetry is the rhythmical creation of beauty in words."
 
"I have great faith in fools; self-confidence, my friends call it."
 
"I became insane, with moments of horrible sanity"
 
"Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before."
 
"Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things that escape those who dream only at night."
 
"The true genius shudders at incompleteness...and usually prefers silence to saying something which is not every thing it should be."
