Emily Dickinson, 1830 - 1886

de bene esse: literally, of well-being, morally acceptable but subject to future validation or exception


Because I could not stop for Death, He kindly stopped for me; The carriage held but just ourselves And Immortality. We slowly drove, he knew no haste, And I had put away My labour, and my leisure too, For his civility.
