575. Sufficient

A word to the surrendered heart

Is sufficient.

A million words to the searching mind

Are sufficient.

A billion words to the striving vital

Are sufficient.

A trillion words to the sleeping body

Are NOT sufficient.

A sleeping body, what is it?

Doubt, man's doubt:

His teeming doubts,

His brooding doubts.
