(2) Aurora Leigh by Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Earth’s crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God:
But only he who sees, takes off his shoes,
The rest sit round it, and pluck blackberries,
And daub their natural faces unaware
More and more, from the first similitude.

(3) A quote from Henry David Thoreau:

“You never gain something but that you lose something.”
