Quotable Quote: “Impoverish thyself…”

“O thou dear one! Impoverish thyself, that thou mayest enter the high court of riches; and humble thy body, that thou mayest drink from the river of glory, and attain to the full meaning of the poems whereof thou hadst asked.” Seven Valleys.

I followed this instruction metaphorically and also literally. It’s what led to my condition of “poverty” but also in truth, it led to a deeper understanding of the “high court of riches” and I am so grateful.
