Here are the top ten greatest Edgar Allen Poe quotes:
Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.
It is a happiness to wonder; it is a happiness to dream.
Believe nothing you hear, and only one half that you see.
Sleep, those little slices of death – how I loathe them.
I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity.
Science has not yet taught us if madness is or is not the sublimity of the intelligence.
Never to suffer would never to have been blessed.
Words have no power to impress the mind without the exquisite horror of their reality.
There is no exquisite beauty.. without some strangeness in the proportion.
All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.
