Know that that the world is a mirror from
head to foot,
In every atom are a hundred blazing suns.
If you cleave the heart of one drop of water,
A hundred pure oceans emerge from it....
In the pupil of the eye is a heaven.
What though the corn grain of the heart be small,
It is the station of the Lord of both worlds to dwell therein.
- Shabistari: The Garden of Mystery
To see a world in a grain of sand
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour.
- Blake: Auguries of Innocence
