  1. The comparison between the outer world and one's inner thought is well explored. This haiku reminds me of the following remark by Marcus Tullius Cicero, c. 30 BCE

    The contemplation of celestial things will make a man both speak and think more sublimely and magnificently when he descends to human affairs.
