Edgar Allan Poe Quote

Picture Quote:

Thou wouldst be loved? — then let thy heart 
 From its present pathway part not! 
 Being everything which now thou art, 
 Be nothing which thou art not. 
 So with the world thy gentle ways, 
 Thy grace, thy more than beauty, 
 Shall be an endless theme of praise, 
 And love — a simple duty.  - Edgar Allan Poe

Our true hearts are forever lonely: A wistfulness is in our thought: Our lights are like the dawns which only Seem bright to us and yet are not.
