Wadsworth Longfellow

Famous quotes by wadsworth longfellow:

    Pride and humiliation hand in hand
    Walked with them through the world where’er they went;
    Trampled and beaten were they as the sand,
    And yet unshaken as the continent.
    —Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1809–1882)

    Such as the wreck of the Hesperus,
    In the midnight and the snow!
    Christ save us all from a death like this,
    On the reef of Norman’s Woe!
    —Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1809–1882)

    Thanks, thanks to thee, my worthy friend,
    For the lesson thou hast taught!
    Thus at the flaming forge of life
    Our fortunes must be wrought;
    Thus on its sounding anvil shaped
    Each burning deed and thought!
    —Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1809–1882)

    The love of learning, the sequestered nooks,
    And all the sweet serenity of books.
    —Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807–1882)

    For the structure that we raise,
    Time is with materials filled;
    Our to-days and yesterdays
    Are the blocks with which we build.
    —Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1809–1882)
