Citáty Edwin Markham


„Osud z nás často bratry činí, nikdo nejde svou cestou sám, čeho se od nás dočká jiný, vrátí se zase zpátky k nám.“

„He drew a circle that shut me out-
Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout.
But love and I had the wit to win:
We drew a circle and took him In!

From the poem " Outwitted“


„There is a destiny which makes us brothers; none goes his way alone. All that we send into the lives of others comes back into our own.“

„He fed his spirit with the bread of books“

„They drew a line that shut me out,
Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout!
But love and I had the wit to win
We drew a circle and brought them in.“

„For all your years prepare,
And meet them ever alike;
When you are the anvil, bear--
When you are the hammer, strike.“

„Choices are the hinges of destiny“

„For all your days prepare, And meet them ever alike: When you are the anvil, bear-When you are the hammer, strike.“


„There is a destiny that makes us brother. None goes his way alone. All that we wend into the lives of others, comes back into our own.“

„Fight ever on: this earthly stuff
If used God’s way will be enough.
Face to the firing line o friend
Fight out life’s battle to the end.

One soldier, when the fight was red,
Threw down his broken sword and fled.
Another snatched it, won the day,
With what his comrade flung away.“

„The sequoias belong to the silences of the milleniums. Many of them have seen a hundred human generations rise, give off their little clamors and perish. They seem indeed to be forms of immortality standing here amoing the transitory shapes of time.“

„At the heart of the cyclone
tearing the sky
And flinging the clouds
and the towers by
Is a place of central calm;
So here in the roar of mortal things,
I have a place where my spirit sings,
In the hollow of God’s palm.“
