Ah, but a man’s reach should exceed his grasp, or what’s a heaven for?”   —   Robert Browning

(That’s a fine question, Bob!  All I know is if I ever get there . . . and my pets aren’t there . . . and they don’t have beer, I’m headin’ south, folks!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

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
