The pervading quality of the feeling, conducing the penchant to hope, and the inclination to dream, that prevails upon the occasion for reading what is written is as the grace of the zephyr, the levity of aethereal nothings, the conception of inanity or an eternal amount of lightness. The pervasive presence of the procreator of imagination and idealism, gently impelling the tendency to feel, and the inclination to respond with love, with willing action, that prevails upon the occasion for reading what is written is as the ponderosity of the neptune, the descension of infernal substances, the comprehension of solidarity, or an eternal amount of heaviness. There, behind a thought, there is a soul in its quality. There, in the heart, I feel the presence of something greater than the theme of what is written.
