Mystic thoughts from the beautiful and highly influential American poet Walt Whitman, accompanied by striking images and paintings.

“I celebrate myself, and sing myself,
And what I assume you shall assume,
For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.”

“And I say to any man or woman,
Let your soul stand cool and composed before a million universes.“

“O Captain! my Captain! our fearful trip is done, The ship has weather’d every rack, the prize we sought is won, The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting.”

“All, all for immortality, Love like the light silently wrapping all.”

“To me every hour of the light and dark is a miracle, Every cubic inch of space is a miracle.”

“What is that you express in your eyes? It seems to me more than all the print I have read in my life.”

“Re-examine all you have been told in school or church or in any book, and dismiss whatever insults your own soul; and your very flesh shall be a great poem, and have the richest fluency, not only in its words, but in the silent lines of its lips and face, and between the lashes of your eyes, and in every motion and joint of your body.”
