In the great right of an excessive wrong.
      - The Ring and the Book--The other Half--Rome
         (l. 1,055) [Wrong]

Of what I call God,
  And fools call Nature.
      - The Ring and the Book--The Pope (l. 1,073)
        [God]

Why comes temptation but for man to meet
  And master and make crouch beneath his foot,
    And so be pedestaled in triumph?
      - The Ring and the Book--The Pope (l. 1,185)
        [Temptation]

Only I discern
  Infinite passion, and the pain
    Of finite hearts that yearn.
      - Two in the Campagna (st. 12) [Passion]

'Mid the sharp, short emerald wheat, scarce risen three fingers well,
  The wild tulip at the end of its tube, blows out its great red bell,
    Like a thin clear bubble of blood, for the children to pick and sell.
      - Up at a Villa--Down in the City (st. 6)
        [Tulips]

This could but have happened once,
  And we missed it, lost it forever.
      - Youth and Art (XVII) [Opportunity]
