Thomas Traherne Quote

Is it not easy to conceive the World in your Mind? To think the Heavens fair? The Sun Glorious? The Earth fruitful? The Air Pleasant? The Sea Profitable? And the Giver bountiful? Yet these are the things which it is difficult to retain. For could we always be sensible of their use and value, we should be always delighted with their wealth and glory.


Centuries of Meditations, by Thomas Traherne (1636-1674) Now First Printed Frome the Author (ed. 1908)
