A Quote by Edna St. Vincent Millay on god, heart, soul, and world

The world stands out on either side No wider than the heart is wide; Above the world is stretched the sky,- No higher than the soul is high. The heart can push the sea and land Farther away on either hand; The soul can split the sky in two, And let the face of God shine through But East and West will pinch the heart That cannot keep them pushed apart; And he whose soul is flat-the sky Will cave in on him by and by.
