„Believe me, every heart has its secret sorrows, which the world knows not, and oftentimes we call a man cold, when he is only sad.“

— Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Context: "Ah! this beautiful world!" said Flemming, with a smile. "Indeed, I know not what to think of it. Sometimes it is all gladness and sunshine, and Heaven itself lies not far off. And then it changes suddenly; and is dark and sorrowful, and clouds shut out the sky. In the lives of the saddest of us, there are bright days like this, when we feel as if we could take the great world in our arms and kiss it. Then come the gloomy hours, when the fire will neither burn on our hearths nor in our hearts; and all without and within is dismal, cold, and dark. Believe me, every heart has its secret sorrows, which the world knows not, and oftentimes we call a man cold, when he is only sad." Hyperion http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/5436, Bk. III, Ch. IV (1839).

„The warriors that fought for their country, and bled,
Have sunk to their rest“

— Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Context: p>The warriors that fought for their country, and bled, Have sunk to their rest; the damp earth is their bed; No stone tells the place where their ashes repose, Nor points out the spot from the graves of their foes.They died in their glory, surrounded by fame, And Victory's loud trump their death did proclaim; They are dead; but they live in each Patriot's breast, And their names are engraven on honor's bright crest.</p "The Battle of Lovell's Pond," poem first published in the Portland Gazette (November 17, 1820).

„There is a Reaper, whose name is Death“

— Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Context: There is a Reaper, whose name is Death, And, with his sickle keen, He reaps the bearded grain at a breath, And the flowers that grow between. The Reaper and the Flowers, st. 1 (1839).

„I like that ancient Saxon phrase, which calls
The burial-ground God's-Acre!“

— Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Context: I like that ancient Saxon phrase, which calls The burial-ground God's-Acre! It is just; It consecrates each grave within its walls, And breathes a benison o'er the sleeping dust. God's-Acre, st. 1 (1842).

„Great is the art of beginning, but greater the art is of ending“

— Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Context: Great is the art of beginning, but greater the art is of ending; Many a poem is marred by a superfluous verse. Elegiac Verse, st. 14 (1879).

„This divine madness enters more or less into all our noblest undertakings.“

— Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Context: "Let us build such a church, that those who come after us shall take us for madmen," said the old canon of Seville, when the great cathedral was planned. Perhaps through every mind passes some such thought, when it first entertains the design of a great and seemingly impossible action, the end of which it dimly foresees. This divine madness enters more or less into all our noblest undertakings. Here Longfellow is translating or paraphrasing an expression attributed to a canon of Seville, also quoted as "we shall have a church so great and of such a kind that those who see it built will think we were mad".
