You never enjoy the world aright, till the Sea itself floweth in your veins, till you are clothed with the heavens, and crowned with the stars; and perceive yourself to be the sole heir of the whole world, and more than so, because men are in it who are every one sole heirs as well as you.

Thomas Traherne

      I have a saved list of quotes to choose from. Whilst making my choice this afternoon this quote stood out to me :-)

      If you look carefully at the image you will see that the elements that adorn the crown fit the quote perfectly…
