Not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.
— Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Mourn not the dead that in the cool earth lie, but rather mourn the apathetic, throng the coward and the meek who see the world's great anguish and its wrong, and dare not speak.
Ralph Chaplin throng quote

Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.
— Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Who would wish to be among the commonplace crowd of the little famous -- who are each individually lost in a throng made up of themselves?
— John Keats

We quaff the cup of life with eager haste without draining it, instead of which it only overflows the brim -- objects press around us, filling the mind with the throng of desires that wait upon them, so that we have no room for the thoughts of death.
— throng quotation by Oscar Wilde
