Quote: Henry Wadsworth

Quote: Henry Wadsworth


I just realized that I spelt the name wrongly in the image, oops, it should be Henry Wadsworth Longfellow not “Wordsworth”. Alright, so this quote says it all in simple terms without any metaphor or grandeur. It says it simply-Β as long as the heart is beating, then words can be written. Being alive should be enough motivation for us to write. I am one to testify that at times giving up does seem a whole lot easier and sometimes I do give up. Β But just as Henry said, nothing is too late. It is never too late to pick up the pen and finish what has been started, whether it is a uncompleted essay, or a novel or even a poem.

Thank you Henry for leaving us this beautiful words of inspiration. And that’s it, my entry for this week’s Writer’s quote Wednesday. If you would love to participate or read more inspiring quotes, then head over to Silver threading where she is hosting this event.

  1. This advice is true for life as well as writing — thanks for sharing! Coincidentally, I went to a Christmas concert where one of Longfellow’s poems (I Heard the Bells . . .) was sung: his wife died tragically a couple of years earlier, but he rebounded eventually.
