Actually, there is one person Dumain seems consistently
to refrain from hating--William Blake.  What
was it that Blake wrote, Ralph--something about 
the fool persisting in his folly, thus entering
the palace of wisdom?  I hope the poet was right.

My own forebear, the Scottish poet Robert Burns
had this to say:

"Oh, wad some power the giftie gie us
 To see oursels as others see us!"

and this:

"A man's a man for a' that"

How true, how true!
