A friend of mine thought me this quote, while I was in high school. I have thought this quote to my son, who is now at University. It is my hope that he will pass it on to his children.

My grandmother said this to me every time she brought me tea while I was doing school homework at my desk. Tomorrow I am handing the desk to my grandson, and Longfellow's words will be in the top drawer.
