Chaos Of Thought And Passion, All Confused; Still By Himself Abused Or Disabused

Chaos of thought and passion, all confused;
Still by himself abused or disabused;
Created half to rise, and half to fall;
Great lord of all things, yet a prey to all;
Sole judge of truth, in endless error hurled,--
The glory, jest, and riddle of the world.
-- Alexander Pope (1688-1744)
-- Essay on Man, Epistle ii, Line 13
