الصفحة 204 - Truth is within ourselves ; it takes no rise From outward things, whate'er you may believe. There is an inmost centre in us all, Where truth abides in fulness ; and around, Wall upon wall, the gross flesh hems it in, This perfect, clear perception — which is truth, A baffling and perverting carnal mesh Blinds it, and makes all error : and, to KNOW, Rather consists in opening out a way Whence the imprisoned splendor may escape.
