Invictus: Paying tribute to one of the greatest gentleman that ever lived

Invictus: Paying tribute to one of the greatest gentleman that ever lived

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.

– William Ernest Henley

About theasiangentlemanblog

The Asian Gentleman philosophy is simple. We advocate you to be yourself, to be the trendsetter, to have your own style. Our aim is to provide you with the knowledge so that the discerning dapper in you know the “rules of the game.” However, remember “Rules are rules.” You have the power of knowledge, use it to create your own style. Use it to your advantage to create something uniquely you. Be a dandy. Be outrageous. Be bold. Most importantly, Be yourself. That is where Substance meets Style.
