      For my unconquerable soul.
      In the fell clutch of circumstance

      I have not winced nor cried aloud,

      Under the bludgeonings of chance
      My head is bloody, but unbowed.
      Beyond this place of wrath and tears

      Looms but the horror of the shade,

      And yet the menace of the years

      Finds, and shall find me, unafraid.
      It matters not how strait the gate,

      How charged with punishments the scroll,

      I am the master of my fate:

      I am the captain of my soul.
    Do you mean to tell us something with this?

    "I am not a Catholic; but I consider the Christian idea, which has its roots in Greek thought and in the course of the centuries has nourished all of our European civilization, as something that one cannot renounce without becoming degraded."
    --Simone Weil

    Re: Quotes, Poems and different Statements

    Some Charles Peguy quotes:

    “Everything begins in mysticism and ends in politics.”

    "Love is rarer than genius itself. And friendship is rarer than love."

    "The honest man must be a perpetual renegade, the life of an honest man a perpetual infidelity. For the man who wishes to remain faithful must take himself perpetually unfaithful to all the continual, successive, indefatigable, renascent errors."

    "Tyranny is always better organized than freedom."

    "Any father whose son strikes him is guilty: of having conceived a son capable of striking him."

    "A great philosophy is not that which passes final judgments, which takes a seat in final truth. It is that which introduces uneasiness, which opens the door to commotion."

    "A great philosophy is not that which is never defeated. But a small philosophy is always that which does not fight. - A great philosophy is not a philosophy without reproach, it is a philosophy without fear."

    I know Christmas is still six months away, but here's a holiday greeting for all those who disagree with me

    "May all my enemies go to hell,
    Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel."
    --Hilaire Belloc "Lines for a Christmas Card"

    "Here richly, with ridiculous display,
    The Politician's corpse was laid away.
    While all of his acquaintance sneered and slanged
    I wept: for I had longed to see him hanged."
    --Hilaire Belloc, "Epitath of a Politician"

    "He served his God so faithfully and well
    That now he sees him face to face, in hell"
    --"On a Puritan"
