6 Great truths are portions of the soul of man;
Great souls are portions of eternity; Each drop of blood that .e'er through true heart ran
With lofty message, ran for thee and me; For God's law since the starry song began,
Hath been, and still forevermore must be, That every deed which shall outlast life's span,
Must goad the soul to be erect and free.” — Lowell.
