Henry David Thoreau
“Could a greater miracle take place than for us to look through each other's eyes for an instant?”
Henry David Thoreau, Walden

George Eliot
“Religious ideas have the fate of melodies, which, once set afloat in the world, are taken up by all sorts of instruments, some of them woefully coarse, feeble, or out of tune, until people are in danger of crying out that the melody itself is detestable.”
George Eliot, Scenes of Clerical Life

Edgar Allan Poe
“And boyhood is a summer sun / Whose waning is the dreariest one-- / For all we live to know is known, / And all we seek to keep hath flown--”
Edgar Allan Poe, The Complete Poetry

Edgar Allan Poe
“O craving heart, for the lost flowers/ And sunshine of my summer hours!/ The undying voice of that dead time,/ With its interminable chime,/ Rings in the spirit of a spell, / Upon thy emptiness--a knell. / I have not always been as now:”
Edgar Allan Poe, The Complete Poetry
