A Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow on boredom, companions, men, and path

The heights by great men reached and kept, Were not obtained by sudden flight But they, while their companions slept, Were toiling upward in the night. Standing on what too long we bore With shoulders bent and downcast eyes, We may discern - unseen before, A path to higher destinies.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807 - 1882)
