"[Emily read that] Browning's schooling, which had been irregular, ended with a single term at London University, but ' . . . his education then was just beginning and was to last through a long lifetime of eager, wide and absorptive culture until death itself.'
Emily wrote down that phrase, 'eager, wide and absorptive culture.'
'That's what I'm going to try for,' she thought."
--Maud Hart Lovelace, Emily of Deep Valley
