b. One in which confidence is placed.
What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Every morning Millicent ventured farther
into the woods. At first she stayed
near light, at the edge where bushes grew, where
her way back appeared in glimpses among
dark trunks behind her. Then by farther paths
or openings where giant pines had fallen
she explored ever deeper into the dim
interior, until one day she stood under a great
dome among columns, the heart of the forest and knew:
Lost. She has achieved a mysterious world
where any direction would yield only surprise.
William Stafford, The Day Millicent Found the World
