Elizabeth Browning

I would not be a rose upon the wall
A queen might stop at, near the palace-door,
To say to a courtier, "Pluck that rose for me,
It's prettier than the rest." O Romney Leigh!
I'd rather far be trodden by his foot,
Than lie in a great queen's bosom.More Elizabeth Browning quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Very whitely still
The lilies of our lives may reassure
Their blossoms from their roots, accessible
Alone to heavenly dews that drop not fewer;
Growing straight out of man's reach, on the hill.
God only, who made us rich, can make us poor.More Elizabeth Browning quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Nor myrtle--which means chiefly love: and love
Is something awful which one dare not touch
So early o' mornings.More Elizabeth Browning quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I would confide to you perhaps my secret profession of faith - which is ... which is ... that let us say and do what we please and can ... there is a natural inferiority of mind in women - of the intellect ... not by any means, of the moral nature - and that the history of Art and of genius testifies to this fact openly.More Elizabeth Browning quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The Greeks said grandly in their tragic phrase, 'Let no one be called happy till his death;' to which I would add, 'Let no one, till his death, be called unhappy.'More Elizabeth Browning quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
