"For from this rich spring..."

"...flow many streams,
some large, others small,
and also little pools for children,

which they find quite large enough,
for the sight of a great deal of water

would frighten them...

" children,
I mean those who are in the early stages."

From The Way of Perfection, Chapter 20
by St. Teresa of Avila
