A Certain Man

Written by: Jean Toomer | Biography
 | Quotes (1) |
 A certain man wishes to be a prince
Of this earth; he also wants to be
A saint and master of the being-world.
Conscience cannot exist in the first: The second cannot exist without conscience.
Therefore he, who has enough conscience To be disturbed but not enough to be Compelled, can neither reject the one Nor follow the other.
