THE THUMB




“ There is no chance, no destiny, no fate

  Can circumvent or hinder , or control

The firm resolve of a determined soul.

Gifts count for nothing; will alone is great;

All things give way before it soon or late.

What obstacle can stay the mighty force

Of the sea-seeking river in its course,

Or cause the ascending orb of day to wait?

Each well born soul MUST WIN what it deserves.

Let the fool prate of luck. The fortunate

Is he whose earnest purpose never swerves,

Whose slightest action or inaction serves

   The one great aim.

Why, even Death stands still

And waits an hour sometimes for such will.”

~ ELLA WHEELER WILCOX
