Worship the incomparably greater persons!


One has to worship
...- the King, the teacher,
mother, father and elders
...who were born before you,

- like God, since they are
...incomparably greater persons!
This is the virtue
...found out by everybody!

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
