And now, we see as through a glass, but darkly–
And that is the sum of all human knowledge;
A pale pall in which all are enthralled
To ultimate ignorance, unlimited fascinations,
And flights of unprovable fancy
Of all that could still yet be.
Thus, we see the ways in which we
Are caught by our own forms, our own fates,
To do the things that we must do
Only for their own sakes.
