Henry Wadsworth Longfellow “Let us labor for an inward stillness-- An inward stillness and an inward healing. That perfect silence where the lips and heart Are still, and we no longer entertain Our own imperfect thoughts and vain opinions, But God alone speaks to us and we wait In singleness of heart that we may know His will, and in the silence of our spirits, That we may do His will and do that only”
That Beautiful Season... Then followed that beautiful season... Summer.... Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood. ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
"I will be a man among men; and no longer a dreamer among shadows. Henceforth be mine a life of action and reality! I will work in my own sphere, nor wish it other than it is. This alone is health and happiness." -Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
freshgypsy: “All the means of action - the shapeless masses - the materials - lie everywhere about us. What we need is the celestial fire to change the flint into the transparent crystal, bright and clear. That fire is genius.” ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow creations and image via: prism of threads
"There Was A Little Girl" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow ... There was a little girl - who had a little curl, Right in the middle of her forehead. When she was good - she was very good indeed, But when she was bad - she was horrid.
