"'Shalt thou not be
  Mine eyes for seeing,
  Mine ears for hearing?'"
(The Secret History of the Mongols, trans. Cleaves.)

"I shall rush [forward] for [him]
So as to cleave the deep water asunder,
So as to break the bright stone to pieces.
I shall rush [forward] for [him]
So as to break the pieces
The blue stone
In the place whither he shall have said,
  'Arrive [thither]';
So as to break to pieces
The black stone
At the time when he shall have said, 'Assault.'"
(ibid.)
