Invictus, by William Ernest Henley



"I salute you. I am your friend, and my love for you goes deep. There is nothing I can give you which you have not got, but there is much--VERY much--that, while I cannot give it, you can take. There can be no Heaven that comes to us unless our hearts find rest today.


"Take Heaven! No peace lies in the future that is not hidden in this present little instant. Take Peace! The gloom of the world is but a shadow; behind it yet within our reach is joy. There is radiance and glory in the darkness, could we but see; and to see, we have only to look. I beseech you to look.



"Life is so generous a giver but we, judging its gifts by their covering, cast them away as ugly or heavy or hard. Remove the covering and you will find beneath it a living splendor, woven of love, by wisdom, with power.


"Welcome it! Grasp it, and touch the Angel's hand that brings it to you. Everything we call a trial, a sorrow, or a duty, believe me--that Angel's hand is there; the gift is there, and the wonder of an evershadowing Presence.


"Our joys, too ... be not content with them as joys. They, too, conceal more divine gifts. Life is so full of meaning and purpose, so full of beauty that beneath its covering you will find earth but cloaks your heaven.


"Courage, then, to seize it ... that is all! But, then, you have courage ... and the knowledge that we are pilgrims together, wending our way through unknown country ... HOME.


"And so, with this writing, I greet you. Not as the world sends greetings, but with profound esteem and with the prayer that for you, now and forever, the day breaks and the shadows flee away."
Giovanne 1513 AD
