A Quote by William Wordsworth on birth, glory, god, heaven, home, lies, life, sleep, and soul

Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting: The soul that rises with us, our life's star, Hath had elsewhere its setting, And cometh from afar. Not in entire forgetfulness, And not in utter nakedness, But trailing clouds of glory, do we come From God, who is our home: Heaven lies about us in our infancy.

William Wordsworth (1770 - 1850)
