Famous quotes containing the word browning:

    What knows,—the something over Setebos
    That made Him, or He, may be, found and fought,
    Worsted, drove off and did to nothing, perchance.
    There may be something quiet o’er His head,
    Out of His reach, that feels nor joy nor grief,
    Since both derive from weakness in some way.
    —Robert Browning (1812–1889)
