Robert Browning who wrote GRAMMARIAN’S FUNERAL
Robert Browning and his Grammarian’s funeral are indeed great
“On the earth the broken arcs; in the heaven, a perfect round.”
The line I like most as it has given me the vision for life.
” AIM HIGH, ACHIEVE HIGH” I used this thousands of time to motivate all!
The POET says:
That low man seeks a little thing to do,
Sees it and does it.
This high man, with a great thing to pursue,
Dies ere he knows it.
That low man goes on adding one to one,—
His hundred’s soon hit;
This high man, aiming at a million,
Misses an unit.
That has the world here—should he need the next,
Let the world mind him!
This throws himself on God, and unperplexed
Seeking shall find him.
Let us aim at a million- no matter we miss by an unit
A place in heaven is sure for me as my aim was high
ON THE EARTH THE BROKEN ARCS; IN THE HEAVEN A PERFECT ROUND
‘Aiming high and missing’ better than ‘aiming low and achieving’-joy unbound!
