we never know how hig we are

Personally i think as do the rest, that this poem tells of how vast the
human capabilities are if pushed up to reach, yet in the end i think emily
dickinson means to say that we have daily successes of all kind some of
which are concidered heroism, yet although we can reach higher, we put
spaces and spaces between us and some great achievements in life for fear
of the great responsibilities that come along or else the great harm some
of those high achievements might bring to the goodness in us like our
humbelness and thankfullness in life.... but thats just my opinion and
anyone is free to disagree.

This poem is a soft criticism on ourselves. It indirectly requests us to
wake up, be courageous and take some bold steps towards personal,
individual and collective success (for this world & the Next).

It, inshort, conveys that believe in yourself (and your GOD), set some bolt
targets followed by true planning based on action plan, and be immune to
fear and possibility of failure to become a great achiever.

I really thought this was a great poem. What she's saying is, you never
know how great you are until you push yourself and can find out what you
can do. She goes on to say that we could all be great, if we weren't scared
of failure.

I like this poeam. We can grow up to be strong as long as we expect
ourselves to.
