"O Arunachala! You showed me that happiness lies in peaceful repose enjoyed when resting in the Self. What other recourse for happiness exists for me than this?"

'Oh Arunachala! as soon as You claimed me, my body and soul were yours.

What else can I desire? You are both merit and demerit,

Oh my Life! I cannot think of these apart from Thee.

Do as You will then, my Beloved, but grant me only ever increasing love for Thy Feet!'

(from Bhagavan's 'Necklet of Nine Gems' - Collected Works of Ramana Maharshi; Rider; 1975)

Great idea to intersperse an article with a verse from AMM.
