Edgar Allan Poe

writer, founder of the detective genre
In death - no! even in the grave all is not lost. Else there is no immortality for man. Arousing from the most profound slumbers, we break the gossamer web of some dream. Yet in a second afterward, (so frail may that web have been) we remember not that we have dreamed.More Edgar Allan Poe quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
