Never Give Up!


“The most authentic thing about us is our capacity to create, to overcome, to endure, to transform, to love and to be greater than our suffering.” ― Ben Okri

William Ernest Henley (Aug. 23, 1849-July 12, 1903) / “Invictus” means unconquerable

Out of the night that covers me,                 Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,              Looms but the horror of the shade,
I thank whatever gods may be                     And yet the menace of the years
For my unconquerable soul.                        Finds, and shall find me, unafraid.

In the fell clutch of circumstance                It matters not how strait the gate,
I have not winced nor cried aloud.             How charged with punishments the scroll
Under the bludgeonings of chance             I am the master of my fate;
My head is bloody, but unbowed.               I am the captain of my soul.

“Fall seven times, stand up eight.”   – Japanese Proverb
