A Quote by Walt Whitman on day, god, men, men and women, wishes, and women

Why should I wish to see God better than this day? I see something of God each hour of the twenty-four, and each moment then, In the faces of men and women I see God, and in my own face in the glass, I find letters dropped in the street, and every one is signed by God's name, And I leave them where they are, for I know that wheresoe'er I go Others will punctually come forever and forever.

A Quote by Walt Whitman on colors and love

Love-buds, put before you and within you, whoever you are, Buds to be unfolded on the old terms; If you bring the warmth of the sun to them, they will open, and bring form, color, perfume, to you; If you become the aliment and the wet, they will become flowers, fruits, tall blanches and trees.
