  • 'It is true my form is something odd,
    But blaming me is blaming God.
    Could I create myself anew
    I would not fail in pleasing you.

    If I could reach from pole to pole
    Or grasp the ocean with a span,
    I would be measured by the soul.
    The mind's the standard of the man'
     
     
     —poem used by Joseph Merrick to end his letters, adapted from "False Greatness" by Isaac Watts—
