Quotes in 1875

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

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

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (Morituri Salutamus, 1875)

Let him not boast who puts his armor on
As he who puts it off, the battle done.
Study yourselves; and most of all note well
Wherein kind Nature meant you to excel.
Not every blossom ripens into fruit.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (Morituri Salutamus, 1875)

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.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (Morituri Salutamus, 1875)

"I have nothing but contempt for the kind of governor who is afraid, for whatever reason, to follow the course that he knows is best for the State; and as for the man who sets private friendship above the public welfare - I have no use for him, either. "
