I count life just a stuff
To try the soul's strength on.

All we have gained then by our unbelief
Is a life of doubt diversified by faith,
For one of faith diversified by doubt:
We called the chess-board white -- we call it black.

Such ever was love's way: to rise, it stoops.

You get about the best thing God invents.

Grow old along with me!
The best is yet to be,
The last of life, for which the first was made.

And master and make crouch beneath his foot,
And so be pedestaled in triumph?

God's justice, tardy though it prove perchance,
Rests never on the track until it reach
Delinquincy.

For life, with all it yields of joy and woe,
And hope and fear, -- believe the aged friend --
Is just a chance o' the prize of learning love.

ROBERT BROWNING, letter to Elizabeth Barrett, Mar. 1, 1845

Autumn wins you best by this its mute
Appeal to sympathy for its decay.

ROBERT BROWNING, Paracelsus

I write from a thorough conviction that it is the duty of me, and with the belief that, after every drawback and shortcoming, I do my best, all things considered--that is for me, and, so being, the not being listened to by one human creature would, I hope, in nowise affect me.

Progress is the law of life: man is not Man as yet.

What Youth deemed crystal,
Age finds out was dew.

Ah, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp,
Or what's a heaven for?

ROBERT BROWNING, "Andrea del Sarto"

ROBERT BROWNING, letter to Elizabeth Barrett, Feb. 26, 1845

Any nose
May ravage with impunity a rose.

ROBERT BROWNING, "Sordello"
