John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:6594
AUTHOR:John Greenleaf Whittier (1807–1892)
QUOTATION:Sweeter than any sung
My songs that found no tongue;
Nobler than any fact
My wish that failed of act.


Others shall sing the song,
Others shall right the wrong,—
Finish what I begin,
And all I fail of win.
ATTRIBUTION:My Triumph.
