When the divine decree descends, the human being is cornered.
Sincerity and truth form the basis of every virtue. Be what thou seemest; live thy creed; Hold up to earth the torch divine; Be what thou prayest to be made; Let the great Master's steps be thine.
My bark is wafted to the strand By breath Divine; And on the helm there rests a hand Other than mine.
Concerning the generation of animals akin to them, as hornets and wasps, the facts in all cases are similar to a certain extent, but are devoid of the extraordinary features which characterize bees; this we should expect, for they have nothing divine about them as the bees have.

It used to be said, that in places like this, nature eventually failed to support man, the truth is exactly the reverse, here man failed to support nature.

So touch my dying lip: so bridge that deep: So pledge my waking from the gift of sleep, And, sacramental, raise me the Divine: Strong brother in God and last companion, Wine.
