Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

“Ships that pass in the night, and speak each other in passing,
Only a signal shown and a distant voice in the darkness;
So on the ocean of life, we pass and speak one another,
Only a look and a voice, then darkness again and a silence.”


Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Tales of a Wayside Inn
