|QUOTATION:||That low man seeks a little thing to do,|
Sees it and does it;
This high man, with a great thing to pursue,
Dies ere he knows it.
That low man goes on adding one to one,
His hundreds soon hit;
This high man, aiming at a million,
Misses an unit.
That has the world hereshould he need the next,
Let the world mind him!
This throws himself on God, and unperplexed
Seeking shall find him.
