and subversive of Religion and Morality.
The propounder both fool and knave.

The propounder a very ordinary person advertised by a clique.
IV (A century later): The Novelty a mixture of truth and error.
Explains as much as could reasonably be expected.
The propounder worthy of all honor
in spite of his share of human frailties,
as one who has added to the permanent possessions of science.

- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Take time to think.
It is the source of power.
Take time to play.
It is the source of perpetual youth.

It is the fountain of wisdom.
