[Inserted in Margin: Truth] "Truth is within ourselves; it takes no rise From outward things, whatever you may believe. There is an inmost center in us all, Where truth abides in fullness; and around, Wall upon wall, the gross flesh hems it in, This perfect, clear perception- which is truth. ... and to know Rather consists in opening out a way Whence the imprisoned splendor may escape, Than in effecting entry for a light supposed to be without." Browning, "Paracelsus"
