Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was an American poet of the eighteenth century. His poems have a musical quality about them. He often used mythology and legend as his primary subject.
Hope: Hope has as many lives as a cat or a king.
Perseverance, Persistence: If you only knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody.
Victory: In ourselves are triumph and defeat.
Time: It takes less time to do things right that to explain why you did it wrong.
Love: Love gives itself; it is not bought.
Happiness: Most people would succeed in small things if they were not trouble with great ambitions.
Friendship: Talk not of wasted affection; affection never was wasted.
Love: The bravest are the tenderest. The loving are the daring.
Hope: The setting of a great hope is like the setting of the sun. The brightness of our life is gone.
