Famous quotes containing the word barrett:
“We all have known
Good critics, who have stamped out poets hopes;
Good statesmen, who pulled ruin on the state;
Good patriots, who, for a theory, risked a cause;
Good kings, who disembowelled for a tax;
Good Popes, who brought all good to jeopardy;
Good Christians, who sat still in easy-chairs;
And damned the general world for standing up.
Now, may the good God pardon all good men!”
—Elizabeth Barrett Browning (18061861)
