“–until we recognise A grandeur in the beatings of the heart.”

     "WISDOM and Spirit of the universe!
      Thou Soul, that art the Eternity of thought!
      And giv'st to forms and images a breath
      And everlasting motion! not in vain,
      By day or star-light, thus from my first dawn
      Of childhood didst thou intertwine for me
      The passions that build up our human soul;
      Not with the mean and vulgar works of Man;
      But with high objects, with enduring things,
      With life and nature; purifying thus                            10
      The elements of feeling and of thought,
      And sanctifying by such discipline
      Both pain and fear,--until we recognise
      A grandeur in the beatings of the heart." 
                        
                          - William Wordsworth, from 
'In Calling Forth and Strengthening the Imagination in Boyhood and Early Youth'
