Truth forever on the scaffold, Wrong forever on the throne,—
Yet that scaffold sways the future, and, behind the dim unknown,
Standeth God within the shadow, keeping watch above his own.

  1. Mr. McClarey.

    Thank you from my heart.
    I’m taking a day off to nurse a flu and this timely truth from JRL has reached its target.

    Like rich cuisine I must taste the entree with reasonable amounts and cherish the flavors slowly and carefully.

    Going back for another bite.Thanks.
