“Beware the beginnings of things” Virgil
Importance does not lie in size,
Nor what in only meets the eyes: –
Forests of oaks from an acorn grow,
And a speck of yeast will leaven the dough,
From single blocks were the pyramids made,
And an unseen germ will engender a plague.
Our brains are organs of miniscule size,
Yet the light of infinity shines in our eyes:
And e’en in the heart of the atom or cell,
Mans’ heavens and gods eternally dwell.
