TOWARDS DEMOCRACY: PART 2. WHO YOU ARE I KNOW NOT, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Who you are I know not, but I have it before me that you shall know
Last Line: Voyaging—and then haply some time we shall meet.
Subject(s): Democracy; Equality


WHO you are I know not, but I have it before me that you shall know.
For a certainty you are not greater or less than me: I neither look upon
you with envy nor with pity, with deference nor with contempt.
Endowments and dignities and accomplishments are of no account whatever;
but honesty, and to stand in time under the great law of Equality—after
which you will be satisfied, and joy will take possession of you.
Till then, farewell. Do not follow me, but go your own way
voyaging—and then haply some time we shall meet.
