The signs as Edgar Allan Poe quotes

Aries: “I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity.”

Taurus: “We loved each other with a love that was more than a love.”

Gemini: “Years of love have been forgot, In the hatred of a minute.”

Cancer: “I was never really insane except upon occasions when my heart was touched.” 

Leo: “Love like mine can never be gotten over.”

Virgo: “It is with literature as with law or empire — an established name is an estate in tenure, or a throne in possession.”

Libra: “Beauty of whatever kind, in its supreme development, invariably excites the sensitive soul to tears.”

Scorpio: “Believe only half of what you see and nothing that you hear.” 

Sagittarius: “I do not suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it." 

Capricorn: "I remained too much inside my head, and ended up losing my mind.”

Aquarius: “There is no exquisite beauty… without some strangeness in the proportion.”

Pisces: “Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.”
