"As a pair of iridescent wings,
these two constellations are spread out across the firmament.
Between them, darting headlong toward earth, is the Star of the Morning,
resplendent abode of the Mother of the World.

By its dominating light,
by its unprecedented approach,
it foretells the new era of humanity."

"Likewise predestined
and also descending over humanity is that satellite of the Mother of the World
—Beauty, the living raiment.
As a garment of purification
must the sign of Beauty glorify each hearth."
