You’ll live in a very fine house. High on a very tall hill. From your veranda, your front porch, you will be able to see the ships from China sailing into the bay. Instead of walking, you’ll ride in a very fine coach, a very fine carriage indeed… You’ll be beautiful, you’ll have lovely gowns, a new one, maybe two every day. You’ll wear your hair up.”

Eat thou honey for it is good and the honeycomb is sweet to the taste.”
Amos Powers


My son, eat thou honey, because it is good;
‘and the honeycomb, which is sweet to thy taste:
Bible, Proverbs 24:13 King James Version



And a stranger shalt thou not oppress…
for ye knew the heart of a stranger seeing ye were a stranger.”
Amos Powers

Also thou shalt not oppress a stranger:
for ye know the heart of a stranger,
seeing ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.
Bible, Exodus 23:9 King James Version



Those who seek my gifts instead of me, shall both the losers be.”



When God at first made man,
Having a glass of blesings standing by;
Let us (said he) pour on him all we can:
Let the world’s riches, which dispersed lie,
Contract into a span.


So strength first made a way;
The beauty flow’d, then wisdom, honour, pleasure:
When almost all was out, God made a stay,
Perceiving that alone of all his treasure
Rest in the bottom lay.
For if I should (said he)


Bestow this jewel also on my creature,
He would adore my gifts instead of me,
And rest in Nature, not the God of Nature:
So both should losers be.
Yet let him keep the rest,


But keep them with repining restlessness:
Let him be rich and weary, that at least,
If goodness lead him not, yet weariness
May toss him to my breast.
— George Herbert, Poem #391, “The Pulley”
