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

    To be seventy years old is like climbing the Alps. You reach a snow-crowned summit, and see behind you the deep valley stretching miles and miles away, and before you other summits higher and whiter, which you may have strength to climb, or may not. Then you sit down and meditate and wonder which it will be.
    —Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807–1882)

    I feel a kind of reverence for the first books of young authors. There is so much aspiration in them, so much audacious hope and trembling fear, so much of the heart’s history, that all errors and shortcomings are for a while lost sight of in the amiable self assertion of youth.
    —Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807–1882)

    The course of my long life hath reached at last
    In fragile bark o’er a tempestuous sea
    The common harbor, where must rendered be
    Account for all the actions of the past.
    —Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807–1882)
