Quotes by Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Elizabeth Barrett Browning, born March 6, 1806, near Durham, Durham, Eng., died June 29, 1861, Florence. British poet. Overcoming ill health and the jealous objections of her tyrannical father, she eloped to Italy with Robert Browning and married him in 1846. Her greatest work, Sonnets from the Portuguese (1850), is a sequence of love poems written to her husband.

  • A woman's always younger than a man
    At equal years.
  • But
    since he had
    The genius to be loved, why let him have
    The justice to be honored in his grave.
  • For 'tis not in mere death that men die most.
  • This race is never grateful: from the first,
    One fills their cup at supper with pure wine,
    Which back they give at cross-time on a sponge,
    In bitter vinegar.
  • If thou must love me, let it be for nought
    Except for love's sake only. Do not say,
    I love her for her smile . . . her look . . . her way
    Of speaking gently . . . for a trick of thought
    That falls in well with mine, and, certes, brought
    A sense of pleasant ease on such a day-
    For these things in themselves, Beloved, may
    Be changed, or change for thee- and love so
    wrought,
    May be unwrought so.
  • Let no one till his death
    Be called unhappy. Measure not the work
    Until the day's out and the labour done.
