Line(s) of the Day #Invictus

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.

The final stanza from the poem Invictus (Latin for unconquered) by English poet William Ernest Henley. It has had many famous fans, including Winston Churchill, Nelson Mandela and C.S. Lewis.
