So, think as if your every thought were to be etched in fire across the sky for all and everything to see.
For so, in truth, it is.
So speak as if the world entire were but a single ear intent on hearing what you say.
And so, in truth, it is.
Do as if your every deed were to recoil upon your heads.
And, so in truth it does.So wish as if you were the wish.
And so, in truth, you are.
So live as if your God Himself had need of you his life to live.
And so, in truth, he does.
