"Dwell in possibility..." says Emily Dickinson
Emily was born on December 10, 1830, in Amherst, Massachusetts, where she lived until her death from Bright's disease on may 15, 1886. She never married but, she had many admirers even at a young age. Although she only lived a short life, she accomplished many things, like... Writing amazing poetry that was so very differnent from everything that had been written during that time period. So you could say that she followed her advice... She dwelled in the possibility of making a change in the world.
About Emily Dickinson
Emily was part of the Trancendentalism movement. Although her parents were very strong in the Christian faith, she always had a feeling that there was something more out there. So after her childhood years of being strictly taught in the Christian religion, she became a trancendentalist.
