I have an affection for a great city. I feel safe in the neighbourhood of man, and enjoy the sweet security of the streets.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
A single conversation across the table with a wise man is better than ten years mere study of books. -Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
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.
— Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
