Tests

Walt Whitman 1819 (West Hills) – 1892 (Camden)




   ALL submit to them, where they sit, inner, secure, unapproachable to
         analysis, in the Soul;
   Not traditions--not the outer authorities are the judges--they are
         the judges of outer authorities, and of all traditions;
   They corroborate as they go, only whatever corroborates themselves,
         and touches themselves;
   For all that, they have it forever in themselves to corroborate far
         and near, without one exception.
