Armstrong Browning Library

So on my college campus we have this awesome library called the Armstrong-Browning Library dedicated to the professor that used to teach on campus who was really into the Brownings (Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning). He built this amazing library on campus.

How Do I love, Thee? Let Me Count The Ways

 

I am super tempted to ask my English professor if we could have class there one day. He would say, no. This would also be a great place to go for a date, it is so romantic and beautiful. I am having my wedding in this building, it is so perfect.

How do I love thee?

“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 candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with a 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.” – Elizabeth Barrett Browning
