Robert Bridges Quotes ROBERT BRIDGES QUOTES


Robert Bridges (1844-1930)

English poet

For beauty being the best of all we know
Sums up the unsearchable and secret aims
Of nature.

ROBERT BRIDGES, The Growth of Love

O youth whose hope is high,
Who dost to Truth aspire,
Whether thou live or die,
O look not back nor tire.

ROBERT BRIDGES, O Youth Whose Hope is High

Since to be loved endures,
To love is wise.

ROBERT BRIDGES, Since to be Loved Endures

The ground-root folly of this piteous philanthropy
is thinking to distribute indivisibles,
and make equality in things incommensurable:
forged under such delusions, all Utopias
are castles in the air or counsels of despair.

ROBERT BRIDGES, The Testament of Beauty

When men were all asleep the snow came flying,
In large white flakes falling on the city brown,
Stealthily and perpetually settling and loosely lying,
Hushing the latest traffic of the drowsy town.

ROBERT BRIDGES, London Snow

Pure Reason left to herself
relieth on axioms and essential premises
which she can neither question nor resolve.

ROBERT BRIDGES, The Testament of Beauty

That discipline which corrects the eagerness of worldly passions, which fortifies the heart with virtuous principles, which enlightens the mind with useful knowledge, and furnishes to it matter of enjoyment from within itself, is of more consequence to real felicity than all the provisions which we can make of the goods of fortune.

ROBERT BRIDGES
