Just for the record:
Vladimir Lenin: Letters on Tactics (Written: Between April 8 and 13, 1917)
<url: http://www.marxists.org/archive/lenin/works/1917/apr/x01.htm#bk5>
"Theory, my friend, is grey, but green is the eternal tree of life."

Vladimir Lenin: How to Organise Competition? (Written: December 24-27, 1917)
<url: http://www.marxists.org/archive/lenin/works/1917/dec/25.htm>
For, "theory, my friend, is grey, but green is the eternal tree of life".

Cliff could be very 'dogmatic' at times ;-)

Cheers,
Jorn
