Famous quotes containing the words henry wadsworth, wadsworth longfellow, longfellow and/or wadsworth:

    The Laws of Nature are just, but terrible. There is no weak mercy in them. Cause and consequence are inseparable and inevitable. The elements have no forbearance. The fire burns, the water drowns, the air consumes, the earth buries. And perhaps it would be well for our race if the punishment of crimes against the Laws of Man were as inevitable as the punishment of crimes against the Laws of Nature—were Man as unerring in his judgments as Nature.
    Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807–1882)

    Critics are sentinels in the grand army of letters, stationed at the corners of newspapers and reviews, to challenge every new author.
    —Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807–1882)

    Long, long, afterward, in an oak
    I found the arrow, still unbroke;
    And the song, from beginning to end,
    I found again in the heart of a friend.
    —Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1809–1882)

    All are architects of Fate,
    Working in these walls of Time;
    Some with massive deeds and great,
    Some with ornaments of rhyme.
    —Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1809–1882)
