Emily Dickinson quotes

- 30 of 192 Results
Since then--'tis Centuries--and yet
Feels shorter than the Day
...
Because I could not stop for Death--
He kindly stopped for me--
...
Elysium is as far as to
The very nearest room,
If in that room a friend await
Felicity of doom.
But Microscopes are prudent
In an Emergency.
"Faith" is a fine invention
"Faith" is a fine invention
When Gentlemen can see--
But Microscopes are prudent
In an Emergency.
Faith--is the Pierless Bridge
Supporting what We see
Unto the Scene that We do not--
Fame is a bee.
It has a song--
It has a sting--
Ah, too, it has a wing.
Fame is a fickle food
Upon a shifting plate.
Farther in summer than the birds,
Pathetic from the grass,
A minor nation celebrates
Its unobtrusive Mass.
