Muriel Strode

  • I will not follow where the path may lead, but I will go where there is no path, and I will leave a trail.

  • I may not overcome the inevitable, but O, it is mine to see that the inevitable does not overcome me.

  • I will not ask that you nor you shall teach my soul the way, but I will trust my soul.

  • I will not ask that you nor you approve. The wild thyme is itself nor asks consent of rose nor reed.

  • Think not because the chrysalis struggles that it is in need of you. Oh! I pray you, stay your eager hands, lest you despoil its silver wings.

  • And when I pray my prayer of thankfulness, it shall be that I had only poverty to overcome. I have seen him who must overcome wealth.

  • O God, let me not say, 'Thine the power, glory be to God!' whilst thou dost, waiting, listen for me to say, 'Mine the power, glory be to God!'

  • I may be helpless to change your attitude toward me, but I am not helpless to disregard it.

  • Who thinks he will fail — will probably fail. Who believe that dreams are only dreams — will probably find it so. Who doubts himself — will achieve only such results as will confirm it.

Muriel Strode, U.S. poet, writer

(1875 - 1930)
