Longfellow And I



“Softly the evening came.
The sun from the western horizon
Like a magician extended his golden wand o’er the landscape;
Twinkling vapors arose; and sky and water and forest
Seemed all on fire at the touch,
and melted and mingled together.”

-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Rudyard Kipling And My Son

My Son

“If you can fill the unforgiving minute / With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run, / Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it, / And – which is more – you’ll be a Man, my son!”

Rudyard Kipling

“Our fears are more numerous than our dangers,
and we suffer more in our imagination than in reality.”
