"Saying nothing sometimes says the most"

Can you tell I've been on a poetry kick this summer? Here's some more favorites:

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

Beauty is not caused. It is.
Emily Dickinson
Forever is composed of nows.
Emily Dickinson
Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul - and sings the tunes without the words - and never stops at all.
Emily Dickinson

“If I read a book and it makes my whole body so cold no fire can warm me, I know that is poetry. If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry. These are the only ways I know it. Is there any other way?” 
― Emily DickinsonSelected Letters
