„It is necessary that I climb very high because of my love for you, and upon the heights there is silence.“

"Auctorial Induction"
The Certain Hour (1916)
Kontext: It spurred me to such action as I took, — but it has robbed me of sugared eloquence, it has left me chary of speech. It is necessary that I climb very high because of my love for you, and upon the heights there is silence.

„I love thee to the depth and breadth and height my soul can reach.“

—  Elizabeth Barrett Browning, buch Sonnets from the Portuguese

No. LXIII
Sonnets from the Portuguese (1850)
Variante: How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach
Kontext: How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
Kontext: How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday's
Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints,—I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! —and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

As 'tis for object strange and high;
