A Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow on progress, trouble, and world

Our ingress into the world Was naked and bare; Our progress through the world Is trouble and care; Our egress from the world Will be nobody knows where; But if we do well here We shall do well there; And I could tell you no more, Should I preach a whole year!

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807 - 1882)
