Edgar Allan Poe

It's been a while since I posted a Poe quote, so here you go.

"And then there stole into my fancy, like a rich musical note, the thought of what sweet rest there must be in the grave."

- from "The Pit and the Pendulum"

Coming from Philly, I had a chance to visit the POE house (not the poor house...that was somewhere else...LOL)
It's located at 7th & Spring Garden sts...not to be confused with the Poe house in Baltimore, or the museum in VA (this guy DID get around)
That's an "interesting" place to I know where he got of his story "ideas"...
BTW...wouldn't want to spend the night there, if you catch my drift.

Thanks for the quote.
