the best is yet to be

This is a famous poem... I believe the lines are "dream along with me, the best is yet to be." I'd like to know if I have these lines correct, and if anyone could give me the whole poem I'd appreciate it. I'd also like to know the author. Thanks all.

Stay at home in your mind. Don't recite other people's opinions. I hate quotations. Tell me what you know. Ralph Waldo Emerson

I think you are looking for 'Rabbi Ben Ezra' by Robert Browning, the first lines of which are:

Grow old along with me!
The best is yet to be

It's a long poem. You can find it through the Classical Poet List at the top of this page.
