Our birth

Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting;
The soul that rises with us, our life's Star,
Hath had elsewhere its setting,
And cometh from afar;
Not in entire forgetfulness,
And not in utter nakedness,
But trailing clouds of glory do we come...

~William Wordsworth

Knowing others

"Knowing others is intelligence;
knowing yourself is true wisdom.

If you stay in the centre and embrace death with your whole heart,
you will endure forever."
