The 6 sentences are pieced together from chapter subheadings from the bio+physiology textbook titled, "What is Life?" by Jay Phelan.   

The individual words are from a book of poetry titled, "The Gift" by Gordon & Gladys DePree (1977).

It's not a case of magic.

It's a simple fact. 

What I see, and hear, and speak,

I become. 

- G&G DePree
