And know that pride
Howe’er disguised in its own majesty,
Is littleness; that he who feels contempt for any thing,
Hath faculties which he never used; that thought with in him
Is in its infancy.
The man whose eye
Is ever on himself doth look on one,
The least of Nature’s works, one who might move the wise man to scorn
Which wisdom holds unlawful, ever.
Oh, be wiser, thou! Instructed that true knowledge leads to love.
