Three lines from Robert Browning’s “One Word More” written in 1855
“None would forego his proper dowry, Does he paint? he fain would write a poem.Does he write? he fain would paint a picture.”
With so many courses to take online, we now can study anything and often for free.Tired of being who you are? transform. Browning indicates that once we are established in a profession, we could very well long for another. Not so easy in 1855, but in today’s world if we are an artist, tomorrow we can be a brain surgeon.
I have taken several courses online. For my last two, one was in physics and other was in computers. I passed them both and have certificates to show for it. I am an expert in nothing. Sounds like a fitting epitaph. One I would like.
