TO VIEW DETAILS, CLICK ON THE PICTURE AGAIN
Joseph Carey Merrick (1862-1890)aka The Elephant Man “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.”
