To see a world in a grain of sand and heaven in a wild flower Hold infinity in the palm of your hand and eternity in an hour.
He who binds to himself a joy Does the winged life destroy; But he who kisses the joy as it flies Lives in eternity's sun rise.
When the green woods laugh with the voice of joy, And the dimpling stream runs laughing by; When the air does laugh with our merry wit, And the green hill laughs with the noise of it.
When I tell the truth, it is not for the sake of convincing those who do not know it, but for the sake of defending those that do.
Those who restrain their desires, do so because theirs is weak enough to be restrained.
