“And you O my soul where you stand,
Surrounded, detached, in measureless oceans of space,
Ceaselessly musing, venturing, throwing, seeking the spheres to connect them,
Till the bridge you will need be form’d, till the ductile anchor hold,
Till the gossamer thread you fling catch somewhere, O my soul.”
Walt Whitman, “A Noiseless Patient Spider”, Leaves of Grass: “Death-bed” Edition

“Only themselves understand themselves and the like of themselves,
As only souls understand souls.”
