topics:

To see a world in a grain of sand And heaven in a wild flower Hold infinity in the palm of your hand And eternity in an hour.

Art, Science and Empire

topics:

Expectations of holiness

topics:

It is not because angels are holier than men or devils that makes them angels, but because they do not expect holiness from one another, but from God only.

From the unknown unknown


Minute Particulars

topics:
