|The Gold Lion
|And the Voice of Ages answered to my soul - 'I am He who formulates in Darkness - the Light that
shineth in Darkness, yet the Darkness comprehendeth it not.'
Earth is gold, and so is the soul also, not common gold, but ours thus elementate.
|And choose what thou shalt finde of meanest price:
Leave sophisters, and following my advice,
Be not deluded; for the truth is one,
'Tis not in many things, this is Our Stone:
At first appearing in a garb defiled,
And, to deal plainly, it is Saturn's childe.
His price is meane, his venom very great
His constitution cold, devoid of heat.
(Hunting the Greene lion, anon.).
