The rings, and nose jewels,
The changeable suits of apparel, and the mantles, and the wimples, and the crisping pins,
The glasses, and the fine linen, and the hoods, and the vails.
The intellect of the wise is like glass; it admits the light of heaven and reflects it.
Augustus John Cuthbert Hare (1834-1903) was an English writer and raconteur.
