There is only one man in the world
and his name is All Men
There is only one woman in the world
and her name is All Women
There is only one child in the world
and the child's name is All Children.

Carl Sandberg

The universe resounds with the joyful cry I am.
Scriabin

The little ones leaped, and shouted, and laugh'd
And all the hills echoed...

William Blake

When I am a man, then I shall be a hunter
When I am a man, then I will be a harpooner
When I am a man, then I shall be a canoe-builder
When I am a man, then I shall be a carpenter
When I am a man, then I shall be an artisan
Oh father! ya ha ha ha

if they use it in a sacred manner.

that all it asks, and all it wants,
is the liberty of appearing.

but the people themselves...

Behold this and always love it!
It is very sacred,
and you must treat it as such...
