[Inserted in margin: Immortality (By Tennyson)] "Thou canst not prove the Nameless, O my son, Thou canse not prove the world thou movesting Thou canst not prove that thou art body alone; Nor canst thou prove that thou art spirit alone; Nor canst thou prove that thou art both in one; Thou canst not prove that thou art immortal, no, Nor yet that thou art mortal - nay, my son, Thou canst not prove that I, who speak with thee, Am not thyself in converse with thyself, For nothing worthy proving can be proven, Nor yet disproven."
