Coaches Hot Seat NFL Quotes of the Day – Wednesday, November 27, 2013 – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


“A single conversation across the table with a wise man is better than ten years mere study of books.”

And

“Ambition is so powerful a passion in the human breast, that however high we reach we are never satisfied.”

And

“Each morning sees some task begun, each evening sees it close; Something attempted, something done, has earned a night’s repose.”

And

“He that respects himself is safe from others. He wears a coat of mail that none can pierce.”

And

“If you only knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody.”

And

“Look not mournfully into the past, it comes not back again. Wisely improve the present, it is thine. Go forth to meet the shadowy future without fear and with a manly heart.”

And

“Into each life some rain must fall, Some days must be dark and dreary.”

And

“We judge ourselves by what we feel capable of doing, while others judge us by what we have already done.”

And

“I am more afraid of deserving criticism than of receiving it. I stand in awe of my own opinion. The secret demerits of which we alone, perhaps, are conscious, are often more difficult to bear than those which have been publicly censured in us, and thus in some degree atoned for.”

And

“Give what you have. To someone, it may be better than you dare to think.”

And

‘The talent of success is nothing more than doing what you can do well, and doing well whatever you do without thought of fame. If it comes at all it will come because it is deserved, not because it is sought after.”

And

“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.”

And

“We judge ourselves by what we feel capable of doing, while others judge us by what we have already done.”

And

“Don Quixote thought he could have made beautiful bird-cages and toothpicks if his brain had not been so full of ideas of chivalry. Most people would succeed in small things, if they were not troubled with great ambitions.”

And

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.
The Battle of Lovell’s Pond

And

Turn, turn, my wheel! All things must change
To something new, to something strange;
Nothing that is can pause or stay;
The moon will wax, the moon will wane,
The mist and cloud will turn to rain,
The rain to mist and cloud again,
To-morrow be to-day.
Kéramos
