Quote of the Day: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Fried Plantain a.k.a Dodo

Fried Plantain a.k.a Dodo

There are some things that never leave your mind.  I remember going to the Notice Board in school – secondary school – week after week to check out the new “quote” for the week.  This one, by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, made a lasting impression as I can still remember it more than a decade later.  That is probably because it is even truer now than it was back then.  If that is even possible.

Oh, the quote; here it is:

The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight, but they while their companions slept, were toiling upward in the night.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
US poet (1807 – 1882)


As for what this quote has to do with Fried Plantains (a.k.a. Dodo), if you give me time, I am sure I can come up with a good answer.  Meanwhile, drool on.
