    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)

    And all the great traditions of the Past
    They saw reflected in the coming time.

    And thus forever with reverted look
    The mystic volume of the world they read,
    Spelling it backward, like a Hebrew book,
    Till life became a Legend of the Dead.
    —Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1809–1882)

    Age is opportunity no less
    Than youth itself, though in another dress,
    And as the evening twilight fades away
    The sky is filled with stars, invisible by day.
    —Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807–1882)

    The scientific imagination always restrains itself within the limits of probability.
    —Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–95)

    half-way up the hill, I see the Past
    Lying beneath me with its sounds and sights,—
    A city in the twilight dim and vast,
    With smoking roofs, soft bells, and gleaming lights,—
    And hear above me on the autumnal blast
    The cataract of Death far thundering from the heights.
    —Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1809–1882)
