    This movie has the distinction of being the only movie to ever make tears run down my face, and I found myself making choking animal noises. Wasn't prepared for that... A masterpiece. 5 years 1 month ago

    Poem used by Joseph Merrick to end his letters, adapted from "False Greatness" by Isaac Watts:

    'Tis 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.
