Inspirational quotes by Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Best be yourself, imperial, plain and true
He said true things, but called them by wrong names.
No man can be called friendless when he has God and the companionship of good books.
Since when was genius found respectable?
Think, In mounting higher, The angels would press on us, and aspire To drop some golden orb of perfect song Into our deep, dear silence.
Who so loves believes the impossible.
Whoso loves, believes the impossible.

I did ; and kissed the instep too:
And would have kissed unto her knee,
Had not her blush rebuked me.
