Though I promise to devote this blog primarily to the discussion of gold & silver, on weekends I may post items that I have found interesting during the previous week. This is one such post. My rationale is that since many of us are diehard ZHers, we most likely share many of the same world views. Therefore, if I find something interesting, then you, my dear reader, may find it interesting, as well.
Below is a work of the great poet, Rudyard Kipling. It was written in 1919 at the end of the "war to end all wars". As with all great poetry, its meaning is subject to personal interpretation. To me, it describes the basic truth that, no matter how diligently man attempts to evolve and "progress", ultimately our human frailties and the laws of nature will blunt our growth. At least that what it means to me. I look forward to hearing what it means to you.
