Retrodictions, canto 4, quatrain 3

Abase thyself, O pride of Man!
In space and time, in might and main
our weight within the cosmic plan
is lighter than a tiny grain.

Commentary by Brother Quark:
This is indirect praise of the majesty of the Creator.

Commentary by N. Hellerstein:
This is about deep time and deep space.
