A Year of Creating Dangerously, Day 78: Sunday God Quote – Browning

elizabeth-barrett-_2844503b

This Sunday’s God quote comes from English poet Elizabeth Barrett Browing (1806-1861), one of the most popular poets of the Victorian era. The quote offered here is just a small section from her epic poem/novel Aurora Leigh: 

Earth’s crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God;
But only he who sees, takes off his shoes,
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries,
And daub their natural faces unaware.
