The lives of great men …

The lives of great men remind us
we can make ours sublime
and that, when we will go away, we will leave
our footprints on the sands of time.

Footprints that perhaps another,
navigating his life,
a brother lost and shipwrecked
viewing it will follow it and take heart.

Come then: courage and action,
with an open heart to all;
always searching, always on the go
learning to stand and wait.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
