—  Edgar Allan Poe

„All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.“

—  Edgar Allan Poe, kniha A Dream Within a Dream

"A Dream Within a Dream" (1849).
Kontext: You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

„I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity.“

„From childhood's hour I have not been
As others were — I have not seen
As others saw —“

—  Edgar Allan Poe

" Alone http://gothlupin.tripod.com/valone.html", l. 1-8 (written 1829, published 1875).
Kontext: From childhood's hour I have not been
As others were — I have not seen
As others saw — I could not bring
My passions from a common spring —
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow — I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone —
And all I lov'd — I lov'd alone

Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.
