The Forerunner: His Parables and Poems
"You are your own forerunner, and the towers you have builded are but the foundation of your own giant-self. And that self too shall be a foundation."
"And I too am my own forerunner, for the long shadow stretching before me at sunrise shall gather under my feet at the noon hour. Yet another sunrise shall lay another shadow before me, and that also shall be gathered at another noon."
"Always have we been our own forerunners, and always shall we be. And all that we have gathered and shall gather shall be but seeds for fields yet unploughed. We are the fields and the ploughmen, the gatherers an the gathered."
