Still water - clear skies

He that attends to his interior self, --
That has a heart, and keeps it, --- has a mind
That hungers, and supplies it, -- and who seeks
A social, not dissipated life, --
Has business; feels himself engaged to achieve
No unimportant, though a silent task,
A life all turbulence and noise may seem,
To him that leads it, wise and to be praised;
But wisdom is a pearl with most success
Sought in still water, and beneath clear skies.

William Cowper, photo by Sally Mann
