“There was never any more inception than there is now”

There was never any more inception than there is now,
Nor any more youth or age than there is now;
And will never be any more perfection than there is now,
Nor any more heaven or hell than there is now.

“Song of Myself.” WALT WHITMAN.

“You are henceforth secure, whatever comes or goes”

It is not to diffuse you that you were born of your mother and
father, it is to identify you,
It is not that you should be undecided, but that you should be decided,
Something long preparing and formless is arrived and form’d in you,
You are henceforth secure, whatever comes or goes.

WALT WHITMAN, Leaves of Grass
