DAS44 - with reference to the "unknown" in your sig.

Something I have noticed on here over the years.....

Younger Americans do not seem aware of their own great literary heritage.


A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs,

jolted by every pebble in the road.

Henry Ward Beecher


He also said:-


Love is the river of life in the world.

You're welcome DAS44. The American literary heritage and the wealth of wisdom and knowledge

spoken and written by American authors, poets, pundits and raconteurs is something to be proud of.


Take Mark Twain (somebody ought to.....) why, he said this about knowledge.....


All schools, all colleges, have two great functions: to confer, and to conceal, valuable knowledge.

The theological knowledge which they conceal cannot justly be regarded as less valuable than

that which they reveal. That is, when a man is buying a basket of strawberries

it can profit him to know that the bottom half of it is rotten.


For all the talk you hear about knowledge being such a wonderful thing,

instinct is worth forty of it for real unerringness.


We have not the reverent feeling for the rainbow that the savage has, because we know how it is made.

We have lost as much as we gained by prying into that matter.
