Beauty Without Vanity

Where in this wide world can man find nobility without pride,


Friendship without envy,

Or beauty without vanity?

Here, where grace is served with muscle

And strength by gentleness confined


He serves without servility; he has fought without enmity.


There is nothing so powerful, nothing less violent.

There is nothing so quick, nothing more patient.
