Autumn wins you best by this its mute appeal to sympathy for its decay.”   —   Robert Browning

(A simply lovely quote, and one I agree with wholeheartedly.  Autumn is my favorites season.  That scent of decay in the air is – somehow – very life affirming, to me.  But, and I know this is poetry and it’s from the 19th Century and everything, isn’t it missing a comma somewhere???  Either after best, or after this?  What do you English teachers, English Lit majors and poetry buffs say?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I couldn’t make sense of this quote, and chalked it up to being from a poet.

    I had a hard time with this one till I sussed out the author’s name. According to Wikiquote, this is the correct punctuation (or lack thereof) in Browning’s long poem “Paracelsus.” Chalk it up to alchymy!

    Why the result for Sunday Oct. 20th 2013 not printed?
