Famous quotes containing the words browning and/or machine:

    the whole seems to fall into a shape
    As if I saw alike my work and self
    And all that I was born to be and do,
    A twilight-piece. Love, we are in God’s hand.
    —Robert Browning (1812–1889)

    All day long the machine waits: rooms,
    stairs, carpets, furniture, people
    those people who stand at the open windows like objects
    waiting to topple.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
