THE MOST BEAUTIFUL POEM


The most beautiful poem there is, is life–life which discerns its own story in the making, in which inspiration and self-consciousness go together and help each other, life which knows itself to be the world in little, a repetition in miniature of the divine universal poem.  Yes, be man; that is to say, be nature, be spirit, be the image of God, be what is greatest, most beautiful, most lofty in all the spheres of being, be infinite will and idea, a reproduction of the great whole.  Henri Frederic Amiel, AMIEL’S JOURNAL
