'He who does not speak, because, being in possession of all he could desire, he 'has no regard for anything'; i.e. he who, in full possession of lordly power, esteems this whole world with all its creatures no higher than a blade of grass, and hence abides in silence. All these qualities stated in the text can belong to the highest Self only.
Hence it behooves us to study the matter carefully, and see whether any good thing can be done with them.
I went to him and made him lean his head upon me as he often did when it ached. He took my hand in both his. "You do love the old man a little?" he asked, in the same tremulous voice. "Indeed, I do!"
