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.

It seems to me as if not only the form but the soul of man was made to walk erect and look upon the stars.

Life is the soul's nursery - its training place for the destinies of eternity.
