Direct your eyesight inward, and you'll find
A thousand regions in your mind
Yet undiscover'd. Travel them, and be
Expert in home cosmography.
My soule her wings doth spread
And heaven-ward flies,
Th' Almighty's Mysteries to read
In the large volumes of the skies.
Cast me upon some naked shore,
Where I may track
Only the print of some sad wrack,
If thou be there, though the seas roar
I shall no gentler calm implore.
The starres, bright cent'nels of the skies.
Quote of the day
Fashion is like the ashes left behind by the uniquely shaped flames of the fire, the trace alone revealing that a fire actually took place.
Paul de Man
