I Journeyed from University to University
I journeyed from university to university, and I saw everywhere the past rebuilt before the eyes of young men and young women — Egypt, Greece, Rome; language, architecture, laws –saw the earth and sky explained, and the habits of mind and the habits of body —
Everywhere chairs of this and that, largely endowed.
But nowhere saw I a chair of the human heart.
