“If you would hit the mark, you must aim a little above it;
Every arrow that flies feels the attraction of earth.”
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, In the Harbor
“Who has searched or sought
All the unexplored and spacious
Universe of thought?
Who, in his own skill confiding,
Shall with rule and line
Mark the border-land dividing
Human and divine?”
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, In the Harbor

Loss and Gain

When I compare
What I have lost with what I have gained,
What I have missed with what attained,
Little room do I find for pride.

I am aware
How many days have been idly spent;
How like an arrow the good intent
Has fallen short or been turned aside.

But who shall dare
To measure loss and gain in this wise?
Defeat may be victory in disguise;
The lowest ebb is the turn of the tide.”
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, In the Harbor
