William Ernest Henley
b. 8-23-1849; Glouschester, England
d. 7-11-1903

Poet, critic and editor William Ernest Henley, who is best remembered for his 1875 poem “Invictus”.

Henley suffered from tuberculosis of the bone and at age 12 had his left leg amputated below the knee. He later was able to keep from having his right leg amputated through the endeavors of pioneering surgeon Joseph Lister.

Henley and his family have several notable literary connections. His very young daughter Margaret called their family friend J. M. Barrie “fwendy” which became “Wendy” of Peter Pan. Robert Louis Stevenson revealed in a letter that Henley had served as inspiration for the one legged character “Long John Silver” in Treasure Island.

The poem has been inspiration for many and lent a title to a 2009 movie about Nelson Mandela. “Invictus” lines have also been used in the 1942 film Casablanca, and in the 1945 film Kings Row, and uttered by Timothy McVey on the day of his execution.

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.

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.

Marguerite Henry
née Breithaupt
b. 4-13-1902; Milwaukee, WI
d. 11-26-1997

Marguerite Henry authored nearly 60 books based on the true events in the lives of animals, usually horses. She sold her first story at age eleven; her Misty of Chincoteague, published in 1947, was an instant success.

Marguerite Henry quote ~
• “It is exciting to me that no matter how much machinery replaces the horse, the work it can do is still measured in horsepower ... even in the new age. And although a riding horse often weighs half a ton and a big drafter a full ton, either can be led about by a piece of string if he has been wisely trained. This to me is a constant source of wonder and challenge.”
