However, if one is only thinking and is neither giving his thoughts a voice or an action then that sort of thinking is worst .A creative thought process should bear a productive result. A thought, which is devoid of a context or of a tradition, will not produce any fruitful result and will go astray. In another maxim, the basic truth of life is established.

As she comes hath set the Dawn her Sister in her place The following lines are the perfect example of imagery, They explain ,as the night draws near that is as the goddess envelopes the world she gradually pushes her sister twilight aside. With all her eyes, the Goddess Night looks forth approaching many a spot: She hath put all her glories on. The night is been personified as goddess of the night and sister of twilight. 3.
