Elenora by Edgar Allan Poe
Edgar Allan Poe
- "They who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night."
- "Men have called me mad; but the question is not yet settled, whether madness is or is not the loftiest intelligence— whether much that is glorious— whether all that is profound— does not spring from disease of thought— from moods of mind exalted at the expense of the general intellect."
- "And, then and there, I threw myself hurriedly at the feet of Elenora, and offered up a vow, to herself and to Heaven, that I would never binf myself in marriage to any daughter of earth--that I would in no manner prove recreant to her dear memory, or to the memory of the devout affection with which she had blessed me."
