Henry Wadsworth Longfellow



  • Time...is the life of the soul.



  • None but yourself who are your greatest foe.



  • Our faith triumphant o'er our fears.



  • The lowest ebb is the turn of the tide.



  • However things may seem, no evil thing is success and no good thing is failure.


 
  • Music is the universal language of mankind.



  • Talk not of wasted affection - affection never was wasted.



  • All things come round to him who will but wait.



  • The human voice is the organ of the soul.



  • There is no grief like the grief that does not speak.



  • If you would hit the mark, you must aim a little above it: Every arrow that flies feels the attraction of earth.



  • Intelligence and courtesy not always are combined; often in a wooden house a golden room we find.



  • Give what you have to somebody, it may be better than you think.



  • Most people would succeed in small things if they were not troubled with great ambitions.



  • Perseverance is a great element of success. If you only knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody.



  • It is foolish to pretend that one is fully recovered from a disappointed passion. Such wounds always leave a scar.



  • Love gives itself; it is not bought.



  • The best thing one can do when it's raining is to let it rain.



  • If we could read the secret history of our enemies we should find in each man's life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.



  • Sometimes we may learn more from a man's errors, than from his virtues.



  • Ambition is so powerful a passion in the human breast, that however high we reach we are never satisfied.



  • In character, in manner, in style, in all things, the supreme excellence is simplicity.



  • The counterfeit and counterpart of Nature is reproduced in art.



  • The present is the blocks with which we build.



  • He that respects himself is safe from others. He wears a coat of mail that none cap pierce.



  • The nearer the dawn the darker the night.



  • People demand freedom only when they have no power.



  • Speaking words of endearment where words of comfort availed not.



  • Hope has as many lives as a cat or a king.



  • Every dew - drop and raindrop had a whole heaven within it.



  • How sublime a thing it is to suffer and be strong.



  • Youth comes but once in a lifetime.



  • We judge ourselves by what we feel capable of doing, while others judge us by what we have already done.



  • It takes less time to do a thing right, than it does to explain why you did it wrong.



  • Man is always more than he can know of himself; consequently, his accomplishments, time and again, will come as a surprise to him.



  • The rapture of pursuing is the prize the vanquished gain.



  • Let the dead past bury its dead!



  • It is difficult to know at what moment love beings; it is less difficult to know that it has begun.



  • Look not mournfully into the past, it comes not back again. Wisely improve the present, it is thine. Go forth to meet the shadowy future without fear and with a manly heart.



  • Into each life some rain must fall, some days must be dark and deary.



  • Great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending.



  • The bravest are the tenderest. The loving are the daring.



  • Tomorrow is the mysterious, unknown guest.



  • That which the fountain sends forth returns again to the fountain.



  • Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad.



  • The world loves a spice of wickedness.



  • The dawn is not distant, nor is the night starless; love is eternal.



  • A single conversation across the table with a wise man is better than ten years mere study of books.



  • Every human heart is human.



  • Give what you have. To someone else it may be better than you dare to think.



  • The life of a man consists not in seeing visions and in dreaming dreams, but in active charity and in willing service.

  • Be noble in every thought And in every dead!



  • The strength of criticism lies in the weakness of the thing criticized.



  • If I am not worth the wooing, I surely am not worth the winning.



  • Thou driftest gently down the tides of sleep.



  • Men of genius are ofter dull and inert in society; as the blazing meteor, when it descends to earth, is only a stone.



  • In this world a man must either be anvil or hammer.



  • Love keeps the cold out better than a cloak.



  • If we could read the secret history of our enemies, we should find in each man's life, sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.



  • A feeling of sadness and longing that is not akin to pain, and resembles sorrow only as the mist resemble the rain.



  • It is a beautiful trait in the lover's character, that they think no evil of the object loved.
