What is robinson?

Famous quotes containing the word robinson:

    Poets and kings are but the clerks of Time,
    Tiering the same dull webs of discontent,
    Clipping the same sad alnage of the years.
    —Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869–1935)

    Never mind if you fall far short of the thing you want to do,—encourage your effort. If no one else will say it to you, say it to yourself. “Not so bad.” It will make the next effort easier and better.
