What does "Thursday's child has far to go" mean?

Answer

This line is from the poem “Monday’s Child,” which is a light prediction of babies born on various days, and the line for Thursday means that that child has a lot of potential in their life.

Interpretations for the “Monday’s Child” poem vary, but the phrase “has far to go” generally points to the idea that the child has a long road ahead of them in their life. A long road in life often leads to success of some kind at the end. The full lyrics of the song indicate that the song is more for helping children learn the days of the week in a fun way and less to create a careful and accurate prediction of their future. For example, the beginning lines are “Monday’s child is fair of face” and “Tuesday’s child is full of grace.” The next lines read “Wednesday’s child is full of woe,” followed by “Thursday’s child has far to go.” Reading into the lines beyond the fun and surface level that it’s intended is mostly pure conjecture. A good example to back up this point is that some versions of the song have the line “Friday’s child is full of woe,” since many people associate Friday with the crucifixion.
