Henry Wadsworth Longfellow quotes :
Ships that pass in the night, and speak each other in passing, only a signal shown, and a distant voice in the darkness; So on the ocean of life, we pass and speak one another, only a look and a voice, then darkness again and a silence.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
It is difficult to know at what moment love begins; it is less difficult to know that it has begun.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
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.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
For age is opportunity no less Than youth itself, though in another dress, And as the evening twilight fades away The sky is filled with stars, invisible by day.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
The life of a man consists not in seeing visions and in dreaming dreams, but in active charity and in willing service.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
The love of learning, the sequestered nooks, And all the sweet serenity of books.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
However things may seem, no evil thing is success and no good thing is failure.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
