As a matter of fact, I memorised this beautiful poem by Longfellow when I
was 14 (36 years ago to be exact). I must admit that I do forget some lines
here and there but thank you, with modern technology we could now access to
informative sites like this one. This is one poem that I was searching to
share with my 3 wonderful children. A must read poem.

I read this poem last friday & I feel it's a very powerful poem.After
reading the poem I wondered that we have explored everything from the
depths of the sea to the vast expanse of universe but have we ever tried to
explore our true selves ,& the reason for being here, on this earth .The
poem has really helped me to
know myself better & has made me clear about my aim in life which is
temporary like a vapor.I have learnt, that without caring how far we are
from our goal, we should do our work so that everyday we are a step closer
to our goal.It's worth passing onto my sister!

I was introduced to Longfellow (not in person, but in poetry) by a friend
of mine and I am so thankful! I've memorized this poem and repeat it to
myself often. It's beautiful and optimistic and motivating! Definitely
worth passing onto friends!

this certainly a beatiful poem someday i will memorize by heart (not
quickly since english isnt my mother tongue) and recite to some stranger
im very intersted in parody and what we call, at least here in brazil,
antropofagism, making an intertextuality between authors.
hereīs one of psalm of Life:
i want to know more english/american antropofagism, if you got more texts
e-mail me the original and the "parody"īs title.

I cry very very lots when i am reading dis poem. I cry like a little school
girl whose boyfriend dumped her a prom. I also love to sit in de bath with
candels burning and a ice cold bottle of grey goose and drink and read my
sorrows away. Herny Longfellow was a close personal friend of my african
american egyptian scottish polish mexican family. (we are mostly called the
scum and "mutts" of the human races. We love henry and all he must stand
for and we raise are solo cups to dat. So henry ain't no holla back girl!!

I am a (young) grandmother and I never heard of this poem before last
Sunday! I have a calendar with quotes in it and Sunday's quote included the
last lines of this poem. "Let us, then, be up and doing, with a heart for
any fate; Still achieving, still pursuing, Learn to labor and to wait. I
liked it. I had heard of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, but not any part of
this poem. I decided that the poem had a lot to say about doing, but it
seemed to lack purpose. So I added my own lines to his. My version sounds
Let us, then, be up and doing, serving God alone,
With a heart for any fate; for He is on the throne!
Still achieving, still pursuing, His glory world renowned,
Learn to labor and to wait, for we are heaven bound!
(for those who trust in Jesus Christ and His redeeming sacrifice) It was
yesterday I decided to get on the internet and see if I could find the
poem. I enjoyed the rest of it...it sounds like he may have been a believer
