Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
(1807 – 1882) American poet

“All things must change to something new.”

“Being all fashioned of the same dust,
Let us be merciful as well as just.”

“Among the noblest in the land –
Though man may count himself the least –
That man I honor and revere,
Who without favor, without fear,
In the great city dares to stand,
The friend of every friendless beast.”
