"To see me going drably about my business is not to see me at all--
the flame I keep burning within.
It is the same with you.
Like stars in vast space, each in its own orbit,
we are millions of light-years apart.
We look at each other through dim telescopes,
weigh each other in confused logarithms,
test each other in cold spectra--
and I burning hot with my own heat, and you with yours."
David Grayson in Great Possessions
