James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
  For grief indeed is love, and grief beside.  1
  God answers sharp and sudden on some prayers, / And thrusts the thing we have prayed for in our face, / A gauntlet with a gift in it.  2
  Knowledge by suffering entereth, / And life is perfected by death.  3
  Let us be content in work / To do the thing we can, and not presume / To fret because it’s little.  4
  Love strikes one hour—love. Those never loved / Who dream that they loved once.  5
  The blue of heaven is larger than the cloud.  6
  We tolerate everybody, because we doubt everything; or else we tolerate nobody, because we believe something.  7
  Whoever may / Discern true ends will grow pure enough / To love them, brave enough to strive for them, / And strong enough to reach them, though the road be rough.  8
