Katherine Eleanor Conway

  • I've borne full many a sorrow, I've suffered many a loss — / But now, with a strange, new anguish, I carry this last dread cross; / For of this be sure, my dearest, whatever thy life befall, / The cross that our own hands fashion is the heaviest cross of all. / ... / The crosses we make for ourselves, alas! are the heaviest ones of all.

    • Katherine Eleanor Conway,
    • "The Heaviest Cross of All," in Edmund Clarence Stedman, An American Anthology 1787-1900 ()
