Quotes by Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Since when was genius found respectable?
Light tomorrow with today!
There, that is our secret: go to sleep! You will wake, and remember, and understand.
And each man stands with his face in the light. Of his own drawn sword, ready to do what a hero can.
The iron gate ground its teeth to let me pass!
My sun sets to raise again.
God's gifts put man's best dreams to shame.
An ignorance of means may minister to greatness, but an ignorance of aims make it impossible to be great at all.
Who so loves believes the impossible.
If thou must love me, let it be for naught except for love's sake only.
You were made perfectly to be loved - and surely I have loved you, in the idea of you, my whole life long.
A woman's always younger than a man of equal years.
What's the Greek name for Swine's Snout?
Thou large-brained woman and large-hearted man.
