Quotes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

For 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.

The counterfeit and counterpart of Nature is reproduced in art.

For his heart was in his work, and the heart giveth grace unto every art.

Resolve and thou art free.

The best thing one can do when it's raining is to let it rain.

All things must change to something new, to something strange.

The life of a man consists not in seeing visions and in dreaming dreams, but in active charity and in willing service.

The love of learning, the sequestered nooks, And all the sweet serenity of books.

However things may seem, no evil thing is success and no good thing is failure.

Look not mournfully into the past, it comes not back again. Wisely improve the present, it is thine. Go forth to meet the shadowy future without fear and with a manly heart.
