  • Rowland Hill born 1744.
  • Louis XVI born 1754.
  • William E. Henley born 1849.

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.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.
—W. E. Henley.

A man who has borne himself honorably through a whole life makes an action honorable which might appear ambiguous in others.


Wherefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable.
—1 Corinthians 15. 58.


Father of mercy, I beseech thee to protect me in my endeavors as I try to live my ideals. May I not choose unnecessary burdens, and when I most need to be strong find that I have lived in that which has weakened my life. I ask for a clear mind and a strong heart that I may be "Captain of my soul." Amen.
