Thou know’st thy selfe so little, as thou know’st not,

How thou did’st die, nor how thou wast begot.

Thou neither knowst, how thou at first camest in,

Nor how thou took’st the poyson of mans sin.

Nor dost thou (though thou knowst, that thou art so)

By what way thou art made immortall, know.

-John Donne, On the Progress of the Soule I
