“Over these things I could not see; These were the things that bounded me; And I could touch them with my hand, Almost, I thought, from where I stand. And all at once things seemed so small My breath came short, and scarce at all.”
"Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.
From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee,
when my heart is overwhelmed:
lead me to the rock that is higher than I."
(M. Kilstofte in Centone)Rotterdam (NL)
"We envy no monarch his glittering crown,
But think ourselves happier far.
There's no place so pleasant as nature's green bow'rs,
And a crown's not as sweet as a garland of flowers."(A. Cowley in How delightful's the life of an innocent ...)Flemalle (B)
