Walt Whitman (1819–1892).  Leaves of Grass.  1900.

323. Thought


OF what I write from myself—As if that were not the resumé; 
Of Histories—As if such, however complete, were not less complete than the preceding poems; 
As if those shreds, the records of nations, could possibly be as lasting as the preceding poems; 
As if here were not the amount of all nations, and of all the lives of heroes.
