Max Muller
(1823-1900) German-born philologist, Orientalist

    The "word of truth" to set men free, is the fruit of the Oak tree, feared by those who have no part in it. Seasonable is the casting forth of its leaves. A healing medicine for those who have a need for Liberty.

    All truth is absolute, and the wonderful thing about truth, there's no need to remember it!

    When dealing with the typical child like conventional attitude you are rarely afforded the whole truth and a made up story to boot. The conventional arrangement makes quite a use of whole lies and half truths. To observe the  earning of the great challenge of adult status is eagerly awaited by the rare independent adult. 
     -- Fredrick William Sillik, Anytown
