Robert Browning Quotes

Motherhood: All love begins and ends there.

Less is more.

Would you have your songs endure? Build on the human heart.

Pleasure must succeed to pleasure, else past pleasure turns to pain.

Bang-whang-whang goes the drum, tootle-tetootle the fife; No keeping one’s haunches still: it’s the greatest pleasure in life.

What’s come to perfection perishes, Things learned on earth we shall practise in heaven; Works done least rapidly Art most cherishes.

The best is yet to be, The last of life, for which the first was made.

I hold not with the pessimist that all things are ill, nor with the optimist that all things are well. All things are not well, but all things shall be well, because this is God’s world.

We mortals cross the ocean of this world Each in his average cabin of a life.

Any nose may ravage with impunity a rose.
