Famous quotes by Robert Browning (31)
"Like dogs in a wheel, birds in a cage, or squirrels in a chain, ambitious men still climb and climb, with great labor, and incessant anxiety, but never reach the top"
"If you get simple beauty and naught else, you get about the best thing God invents"
"I trust in nature for the stable laws of beauty and utility. Spring shall plant and autumn garner to the end of time"
"I give the fight up: let there be an end, a privacy, an obscure nook for me. I want to be forgotten even by God"
"How good is man's life, the mere living! How fit to employ all the heart and the soul and the senses forever in joy!"
"Fail I alone, in words and deeds? Why, all men strive and who succeeds?"
"But what if I fail of my purpose here? It is but to keep the nerves at strain, to dry one's eyes and laugh at a fall, and baffled, get up and begin again"
"Autumn wins you best by this its mute appeal to sympathy for its decay"
"Ah, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp. Or what's a heaven for?"
"The moment eternal - just that and no more - When ecstasy's utmost we clutch at the core While cheeks burn, arms open, eyes shut, and lips meet!"
"The aim, if reached or not, makes great the life: Try to be Shakespeare, leave the rest to fate!"
"That's the wise thrush; he sings each song twice over, lest you should think he never could recapture the first fine careless rapture!"
"So, fall asleep love, loved by me... for I know love, I am loved by thee"
"Perhaps one has to be very old before one learns to be amused rather than shocked"
"One who never turned his back but marched breast forward, never doubted clouds would break, Never dreamed, though right were worsted, wrong would triumph, Held we fall to rise, are baffled to fight better, sleep to wake"
