  17. 19. In the immortal words of the greatest blogger of all time, Walt Whitman. Among the Multitude Among the men and women, the multitude, I perceive one picking me out by secret and divine signs, Acknowledging none else — not parent, wife, husband, brother, child, any nearer than I am; Some are baffled — But that one is not — that one knows me. Ah, lover and perfect equal! I meant that you should discover me so, by my faint indirections; And I, when I meet you, mean to discover you by the like in you.
