The heights of great men reached and kept, Were not attained by sudden flight, But they, while their companions slept, Were toiling upwards in the night.

      Yes, this quote is from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. I had to memorize it in high school and am surprised to see it mistakenly atrributed to someone else.

महापुरुषों की ऊंचाइयों तक पहुंचना और रखा जाना, अचानक उड़ान द्वारा प्राप्त नहीं किया गया था, लेकिन वे, जबकि उनके साथी सोए थे, रात में ऊपर की ओर बढ़ रहे थे।

గొప్ప మనుషుల ఎత్తులు చేరుకున్నాయి మరియు ఉంచబడ్డాయి, ఆకస్మిక విమానంలో చేరుకోలేదు, కాని వారు, వారి సహచరులు నిద్రపోతున్నప్పుడు, రాత్రికి పైకి శ్రమించారు.

Ulaşılan ve tutulan büyük adamların yüksekliklerine, ani bir uçuşla ulaşılmadı, ama onlar, arkadaşları uyurken, gece yukarı doğru çalışıyorlardı.
