No one has solved the tangled secrets of eternity
No one has set foot beyond the orbit
I see, from tyro to teacher
Impotent are the hands of all men born of woman.

 

Bodl 72

No one has solved the tangled secrets of eternity,
no one has set foot beyond the orbit,
since, so far as I can see, from tyro to teacher,
impotent are the hands of all men born of woman.

F4 27

Myself when young did eagerly frequent
Doctor and Saint, and heard great argument
About it and about: but evermore
Came out by the same door where in I went.

F4 28

With them the seed of Wisdom did I sow,
And with mine own hand wrought to make it grow;
And this was all the Harvest that I reap'd--
"I came like Water, and like Wind I go."

HA 27c & 28c

No one has solved the tangled secrets of eternity,
No one has set foot beyond the orbit (of human understanding),
Since, so far as I can see, from tyro to teacher.
Impotent are the hands of all men born of women.

Nic 175

Personne n'a pénétré les secrets du Principe; personne n'a fait un pas en dehors de soi-même. J'observe, et je ne vois qu'insuffisance depuis l'élève jusqu'au maître, insuffisance dans tout ce que mère a enfanté.

P 356

The crux of the secrets of heaven solved hath none yet;
Nor eke withoutside of his nature foot hath one set:
When I look, from beginner to master, I see, with regret,
In all bom of woman's but weakness and hindrance and let.

Th 238

None the eternal secrets e'er can trace.
Nor one step, foot beyond his nature place;
From pupil to the master I behold
Those born of woman, weak in every case.

Wh 190

What sage the eternal tangle e'er unraveled,
Or one short step beyond his nature traveled?
From pupils to the masters turn your eyes,
And see, each mother's son alike is graveled.
