Quotes by Emily Dickinson

'If ... it makes my whole body so cold no fire can warm me, I know that it is poetry.'

‘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?'
