John Greenleaf Whittier Quotes
No longer forward nor behindI look in hope or fearBut, grateful, take the good I findThe best of now and here.
For of all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these, "It might have been!"
In any man who dies there dies with him, his first snow and kiss and fight... Not people die but worlds die in them.
Of all sad words of tongue and pen the saddest are these, what might have been.
The saddest thing of word or pen, To know the things that might have been.
