John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:7484
AUTHOR:Matthew Arnold (1822–1888)
QUOTATION:With aching hands and bleeding feet
  We dig and heap, lay stone on stone;
We bear the burden and the heat
  Of the long day and wish ’t were done.
Not till the hours of light return
All we have built do we discern.
ATTRIBUTION:Morality.
