Quotes by Edwin Markham


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.


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


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.


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?
