A Quote by Elizabeth Barrett Browning on heart and humanity

Or from Browning some "Pomegranate," which if cut deep down the middle Shows a heart within blood-tinctured, of a veined humanity.

A Quote by Elizabeth Barrett Browning on books, children, deed, duty, kiss, life, love, service, and world

The sweetest lives are those to duty wed, Whose deeds, both great and small Are close-knot strands of an unbroken thread There love ennobles all. The world may sound no trumpets, ring no bells The book of life the shining record tells. Thy love shall chant its own beatitudes After its own life-workings. A child's kiss Set on thy sighing lips shall make thee glad; A poor man served by thee shall make thee rich; A sick man helped by thee shall make thee strong; Thou shalt serve thyself by every sense, Of service which thou renderest.

A Quote by Elizabeth Barrett Browning on earth, god, heaven, and rest

Earth's crammed with heaven And every common bush afire with God; But only he who sees, takes off his shoes, The rest sit round it and pick blackberries, And daub their natural faces unaware More and more from the first similitude.
