Robert Browning quotes

Give me the keys. I feel for the common chord again,
Sliding by semi-tones till I sink to a minor,--yes,
...
On the earth the broken arcs; in the heaven a perfect round.
Ye know why the forms are fair, ye hear how the tale is told:
It is all triumphant art, but art in obedience to laws,
The high that proved too high, the heroic for earth too hard,
The passion that left the ground to lose itself in the sky,
...
Sorrow is hard to bear, and doubt is slow to clear,
Each sufferer says his say, his scheme of the weal and woe:
...
Progress, man's distinctive mark alone,
Not God's, and not the beasts': God is, they are,
...
Stung by the splendour of a sudden thought.
Let us try.
To-morrow, how you shall be glad for this!
You called me, and I came home to your heart.
Ah, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp,
Or what's a heaven for?
