Timely Reminders

"Those who crusade, not for God in themselves, but against the devil in others, never succeed in making the world better, but leave it either as it was, or sometimes perceptibly worse than what it was, before the crusade began.

of what is found there"
-- William Carlos Williams, "Asphodel, That Greeny Flower"
