Quotes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, 1807-1882, American writer. The best-known 19th-century poet in the United States, he wrote The Song of Hiawatha (1855) and a translation (1865-1867) of Dante's Divine Comedy.

  • The love of learning, the sequestered nooks,
    And all the sweet serenity of books.
  • I feel a kind of reverence for the first books of young authors. There is so much aspiration in them, so much audacious hope and trembling fear, so much of the heart's history, that all errors and shortcomings are for a while lost sight of in the amiable self assertion of youth.
  • We judge ourselves by what we feel capable of doing, while others judge us by what we have already done.
  • A feeling of sadness and longing
    That is not akin to pain,
    And resembles sorrow only
    As the mist resembles the rain.
  • Whatever poet, orator, or sage
    May say of it, old age is still old age.
  • The Mormons make the marriage ring, like the ring of Saturn, fluid, not solid, and keep it in its place by numerous satellites.
  • More Quotes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow: Page 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
