Quotes by Edwin Markham


The few little years we spend on earth are only the first scene in a Divine Drama that extends into Eternity.


The thing that is incredible is life itself. Why should we be here in this sun-illuminated universe? Why should there be green earth under our feet?


There is a destiny That makes us brothers None goes his way alone All that we send into the lives of others Comes back into our own.


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 that took him in.
