Famous quotes by edwin arlington robinson:

    And at his heart there may have gnawed
    Sick memories of a dead faith foiled and flawed
    Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869–1935)

    He packed a lot of things that she had made
    Most mournfully away in an old chest
    Of hers, and put some chopped-up cedar boughs
    In with them, and tore down the slaughterhouse.
    Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869–1935)

    He never told us what he was,
    Or what mischance, or other cause,
    Had banished him from better days
    To play the Prince of Castaways.
    Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869–1935)

    We cannot know how much we learn
    From those who never will return,
    Until a flash of unforeseen
    Remembrance falls on what has been.
    Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869–1935)

    Your Dollar is your only Word,
    The wrath of it your only fear.

    ‘You build it altars tall enough
    To make you see, but your are blind;
    You cannot leave it long enough
    To look before you or behind.
    Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869–1935)
