That whereby the rivers and seas are able to receive the homage
and tribute of all the valley streams, is their skill in being lower

words below them, and, wishing to be before them, places his person

behind them





That saying of the ancients that 'the partial becomes complete' That which is at rest is easily kept hold of; facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail
