We are reformers in spring and summer; in autumn and winter we stand by the old - reformers in the morning, conservatives at night. Reform is affirmative, conservatism is negative; conservatism goes for comfort, reform for truth.
Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)
It is good to rub and polish your mind against that of others.
Michel de Montaigne (1533-1592)
Truth shines the brighter clad in verse.
Jonathan Swift (1667-1745)
