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!"
"A man's a man for a' that"
How true, how true!
