A minute's success pays the failure of years.
Robert Browning   Category:

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

Ambition is not what man does... but what man would do.
Robert Browning   Category:

Autumn wins you best by this its mute appeal to sympathy for its decay.
Robert Browning   Category:

But what if I fail of my purpose here? It is but to keep the nerves at strain, to dry one's eyes and laugh at a fall, and baffled, get up and begin again.
Robert Browning   Category:

Fail I alone, in words and deeds? Why, all men strive and who succeeds?

Faultless to a fault.

God is the perfect poet.

Grow old with me! The best is yet to be.

How good is man's life, the mere living! How fit to employ all the heart and the soul and the senses forever in joy!
Robert Browning   Category:

I count life just a stuff to try the soul's strength on.
Robert Browning   Category:

I give the fight up: let there be an end, a privacy, an obscure nook for me. I want to be forgotten even by God.
Robert Browning   Category:

I trust in nature for the stable laws of beauty and utility. Spring shall plant and autumn garner to the end of time.
Robert Browning   Category:

If you get simple beauty and naught else, you get about the best thing God invents.
Robert Browning   Category:

Like dogs in a wheel, birds in a cage, or squirrels in a chain, ambitious men still climb and climb, with great labor, and incessant anxiety, but never reach the top.
Robert Browning   Category: Business

Love is energy of life.
Robert Browning   Category:

Motherhood: All love begins and ends there.
Robert Browning   Category: Mom

My sun sets to rise again.
Robert Browning   Category:

Never the time and the place and the loved one all together!
Robert Browning   Category:

Oh, to be in England now that April's there.
Robert Browning   Category:

On the earth the broken arcs; in the heaven a perfect round.
Robert Browning   Category:

One who never turned his back but marched breast forward, never doubted clouds would break, Never dreamed, though right were worsted, wrong would triumph, Held we fall to rise, are baffled to fight better, sleep to wake.
Robert Browning   Category:

Perhaps one has to be very old before one learns to be amused rather than shocked.
Robert Browning   Category:

So, fall asleep love, loved by me... for I know love, I am loved by thee.
Robert Browning   Category:

Stung by the splendour of a sudden thought.
Robert Browning   Category:

Take away love and our earth is a tomb.
Robert Browning   Category: Love

That's the wise thrush; he sings each song twice over, lest you should think he never could recapture the first fine careless rapture!
Robert Browning   Category:

The aim, if reached or not, makes great the life: Try to be Shakespeare, leave the rest to fate!
Robert Browning   Category:

The moment eternal - just that and no more - When ecstasy's utmost we clutch at the core While cheeks burn, arms open, eyes shut, and lips meet!
Robert Browning   Category:

Tis not what man Does which exalts him, but what man Would do!
Robert Browning   Category:

What of soul was left, I wonder, when the kissing had to stop?
Robert Browning   Category:

What Youth deemed crystal, Age finds out was dew.
Robert Browning   Category:

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   Category:

White shall not neutralize the black, nor good compensate bad in man, absolve him so: life's business being just the terrible choice.
Robert Browning   Category:

Who hears music feels his solitude peopled at once.
Robert Browning   Category: Music

You should not take a fellow eight years old and make him swear to never kiss the girls.
Robert Browning   Category:
