Quote Bullet

It is not merely the likeness which is precious... but the association and the sense of nearness involved in the thing... the fact of the very shadow of the person lying there fixed forever! It is the very sanctification of portraits I think -- and it is not at all monstrous in me to say that I would rather have such a memorial of one I dearly loved, than the noblest Artist's work ever produced.
~ Elizabeth Barrett Browning - [Photography]

Quote Bullet

Now, may the good God pardon all good men!
~ Elizabeth Barrett Browning - [Goodness]
