” you cannot speak of ocean to a frog living in a well- a creature of narrow sphere.
you cannot speak of ice to a summer insect-a creature of season…..
but now that you have emerged from your narrow sphere, and have seen the great ocean, you know your own insignificance. i can speak to you of great principles.”
