„Hold fast the time! Guard it, watch over it, every hour, every minute!“

Ch. 7
The Beloved Returns (1939)
Contexto: Hold fast the time! Guard it, watch over it, every hour, every minute! Unregarded it slips away, like a lizard, smooth, slippery, faithless, a pixy wife. Hold every moment sacred. Give each clarity and meaning, each the weight of thine awareness, each its true and due fulfillment.
