Famous quotes containing the words barrett browning, barrett and/or browning:

    Measure not the work
    Until the day’s out and the labour done,
    Then bring your gauges.
    —Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806–1861)

    What is art,
    But life upon the larger scale, the higher,
    When, graduating up in a spiral line
    Of still expanding and ascending gyres,
    It pushes toward the intense significance
    Of all things, hungry for the Infinite?
    Art’s life,—and where we live, we suffer and toil.
    —Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806–1861)

    What’s a man’s age? He must hurry more, that’s all;
    Cram in a day, what his youth took a year to hold.
    —Robert Browning (1812–1889)
