"And I have felt
A presence that disturbs me with joy
Of elevated thoughts; a sense sublime
Of something far more deeply interfused,
Whose dwellings is the light of setting suns,
And the round ocean and the living air,
And the blue sky, and in the mind of man:
A motion and a spirit, that impels all thinking things, all objects of all thoughts,
And roll through all things.
Wordsworth Tintern Abbey
I have reached the inner vision
and through Thy spirit in me
I have heard thy wondrous secret.
Through Thy mystic insight
Thou hast caused a spring of knowledge
To will up within me,
A fountain of power, pouring forth living waters
A flood of love and of all embracing wisdom
Like the splendour of Eternal Light
The Book of Hymns from the Dead Sea Scroll
In Thy wind – in Thy light-
How insignificant is everything else, how small are we – and how happy in that which alone is great."
Dag Hammarskjoeld Markings
