"And so being young and dipped in folly, I fell I fell in love with melancholy" --Edgar Allan Poe

I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings - Maya Angelou. Maya's tribulations contribute to her wisdom. Such a good book written from the views & voice of young Maya.

She walks in beauty, Byron - my all time favorite poem. Not a book exactly, but I think it fits in the category.
