When
by D.H. Lawrence 

When we get out of the glass bottles of our ego,

and when we escape like squirrels turning in the
cages of our personality
and get into the forests again,

we shall shiver with cold and fright
but things will happen to us
so that we don’t know ourselves.

Cool, unlying life will rush in,
and passion will make our bodies taut with power,

we shall stamp our feet with new power
and old things will fall down,

we shall laugh, and institutions will curl up like
burnt paper.

Know Thyself More Deeplyby D.H. Lawrence
Go deeper than love, for the soul has greater depth,love is like the grass, but the heart is deep wild rockmolten, yet dense and permanent.Go down to your deep old heart, and lose sight of yourself.And lose sight of me, the me whom you turbulently loved.Let us lose sight of ourselves, and break the mirrors.For the fierce curve of our lives is moving again to the depthout of sight, in the deep living.

Know Thyself More Deeply
by D.H. Lawrence

Go deeper than love, for the soul has greater depth,
love is like the grass, but the heart is deep wild rock
molten, yet dense and permanent.

Go down to your deep old heart, and lose sight of yourself.
And lose sight of me, the me whom you turbulently loved.

Let us lose sight of ourselves, and break the mirrors.
For the fierce curve of our lives is moving again to the depth
out of sight, in the deep living.
