by Akhenaton

and see that thou ever act according to them.
First know that thy principles are just,
and then be thou.
- Akhenaton

no sooner are they opened,
but treasures are poured out before thee.

it is whetting a sword to wound thine own breast,
or murder thy friend.

the first thing put on by it with the flesh,
and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
