Página 120 - For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no pre-eminence above a beast: for all is vanity. All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.
Página 109 - O Earth ! thou hast not any wind that blows Which is not music ; every weed of thine, Pressed rightly, flows in aromatic wine ; And every humble hedgerow flower that grows, And every little brown bird that doth sing, Hath something greater than itself, and bears A living word to every living thing, Albeit it holds the message unawares.
