A Quote by William Wordsworth on life, mind, spirit, thinking, and thought

A sense sublime Of something far more deeply interfused, Whose dwelling is the light of setting suns, And the round ocean and the living air And the blue sky, and in the mind of man,- A motion and a spirit, that impels All thinking things, all objects of all thought, And rolls through all things.
