"Come forth into the light of things,
Let Nature be your teacher."
--William Wordsworth

Héctor "Where are your books?--that light bequeathed
To Beings else forlorn and blind!
Up! up! and drink the spirit breathed
From dead men to their kind.

¿Dónde están tus libros? ¡La luz
a este ciego mundo legada!
¡Arriba! Aspira la salud
que en ellos los muertos exhalan.

William Wordsworth, Expostulation and reply.

Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower; We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind."

"Brook! Whose society the poet seeks,
Intent his wasted spirits to renew;
And whom the curious painter doth pursue;
Through rocky passes, among flowery creeks,
And tracks thee dancing down thy water-breaks.
