Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all. -Emily Dickinson

A word is dead when it’s been said, some say. I say it just begins to live that day. -Emily Dickinson

I know nothing in the world that has as much power as a word. Sometimes I write one, and I look at it, until it begins to shine. -Emily Dickinson

If I read a book and it makes my whole body so cold no fire can ever warm me, I know that is poetry. Emily Dickinson
