Emily Enlivens

“Find ecstasy in life; the mere sense of living is joy enough.”

The divine, sublime Emily Dickinson was born today, December 10, in 1830. A gathering of her quiet wisdom to in spirit and delight us:

“If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not die in vain.”

“A word is dead when it is said, some say. I say it just begins to live that day.”

“Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul—and sings the tunes without the words—and never stops at all.”

“The soul should always stand ajar, ready to welcome the ecstatic experience.”

“If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know it is poetry.”

“People need hard times and oppression to develop psychic muscles.”

“Luck is not chance, it’s toil; fortune favor’s expensive smile is earned.”

“There is no Frigate like a book to take us lands away nor any coursers like a page of prancing Poetry.”

“He ate and drank the precious Words, his Spirit grew robust; He knew no more that he was poor, nor that his fame was Dust.”

“Nature is our eldest mother; she will do no harm.”

“To love is so startling it leaves little time for anything else.”

“Morning without you is a dwindled dawn.”

“It is better to be the hammer than the anvil.”

Saying nothing…sometimes says the most.”

“I dwell in possibility.”

Simple words, strung together like shiny pearls. What a joy! Write on!
