"Man is supreme lord and master" by Samuel Butler

by gsa123

Man is supreme lord and master

Of his own ruin and disaster ;

Controls his fate, but nothing less

In ordering his own happiness ;

For all his care and providence

Is too, too feeble a defence,

To render it secure and certain

Against the injuries of Fortune ;

And oft, in spite of all his wit,

Is lost with one unlucky hit,

And ruined with a circumstance,

And mere punctilio, of chance.
