Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

1807 - 1882

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.

A Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow on death, future, god, heart, life, past, present, and trust

Trust no future, howe'er pleasant! Let the dead Past bury its dead! Act, act in the living present! Heart within, and God o'erhead!
