John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:7091
AUTHOR:Robert Browning (1812–1889)
QUOTATION:That low man seeks a little thing to do,
    Sees it and does it;
This high man, with a great thing to pursue,
    Dies ere he knows it.
That low man goes on adding one to one,—
    His hundred’s soon hit;
This high man, aiming at a million,
    Misses an unit.
That has the world here—should he need the next,
    Let the world mind him!
This throws himself on God, and unperplexed
    Seeking shall find him.
ATTRIBUTION:A Grammarian’s Funeral.
