William Ernest Henley
“Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
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.”
William Ernest Henley, Invictus

Percy Bysshe Shelley
“Death is the veil which those who live call life;
They sleep, and it is lifted.”
Percy Bysshe Shelley, Prometheus Unbound

Percy Bysshe Shelley
“A poet is a nightingale who sits in darkness and sings to cheer its own solitude with sweet sounds.”
Percy Bysshe Shelley

William Ernest Henley
“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.”
William Ernest Henley, Echoes of Life and Death;

John Keats
“Do you not see how necessary a world of pains and troubles is to school an intelligence and make it a soul?”
John Keats, Letters of John Keats
