Placed on this isthmus of a middle state,


Placed on this isthmus of a middle state,
A being darkly wise, and rudely great:
With too much knowledge for the sceptic side,
With too much weakness for the stoic’s pride,
He hangs between; in doubt to act, or rest;
In doubt to deem himself a god, or beast;
In doubt his mind or body to prefer;
Born but to die, and reasoning but to err;
Alike in ignorance, his reason such,
Whether he thinks too little or too much:
Chaos of thought and passion, all confused;
Still by himself abused or disabused;
Created half to rise and half to fall;
Great lord of all things, yet a prey to all;
Sole judge of truth, in endless error hurled:
The glory, jest, and riddle of the world!

Looked like a quiet place to give you some info Gerard. Here is a link to a website and book by Brian Peskin. It turns everything we thought was good medicine upside down. Esp. heart disease issues. STOP TAKING FISH OILS!! AMAZON has the book as well. I implore you to read and spread the news!!
