Famous quotes by elizabeth barrett browning:

    What was he doing, the great god Pan,
    Down in the reeds by the river?
    Spreading ruin and scattering ban,
    Splashing and paddling with hoofs of a goat,
    And breaking the golden lilies afloat
    With the dragon-fly on the river.
    Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806–1861)

    This race is never grateful: from the first,
    One fills their cup at supper with pure wine,
    Which back they give at cross-time on a sponge,
    In bitter vinegar.
    Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806–1861)
