My favorite quotes from Emily Dickinson

Tonight is blogapalooza where we have an hour to create a post on a topic we receive at nine. Here is tonight's challenge:

"Share your favorite quote (or quotes) -- from a philosopher, author, comedian, politician, friend, family member, movie, whoever -- and write in detail about why it resonates and has meaning for you."

This was easy for me as I have a daughter named Emily. She was named after Emily Dickinson, a sheltered woman who wrote poems that really resonate with me. But I cannot pick just one, I have too many so I've decided to explain as many as I can by ten o'clock.

Without further ado, here are my favorite quotes from Emily Dickinson.

A poet like Emily Dickinson created quilts of her words. This makes me Sew happy!
