If you go far enough out
you can see the Universe itself,
all the billion light years summed up time
only as a flash, just as lonely, as distant
as a star on a June night
if you go far enough out.

And still, my friend, if you go far enough out
you are only at the beginning
– of yourself.

Rolf Jacobsen (1907-1994)
(Night Open: Selected Poems of Rolf Jacobsen)
