Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Simplicity in character, in manners, in style; in all things the supreme excellence is simplicity.
Intelligence and courtesy not always are combined; often in a wooden house a golden room we find.
They who go Feel not the pain of parting; it is they Who stay behind that suffer.
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.
Perseverance is a great element of success. If you only knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow — quotes and aphorisms
A single conversation across the table with a wise man is better than ten years mere study of books.
In character, in manner, in style, in all things, the supreme excellence is simplicity.
