from sources far below the fountain
head of the true excellence of the
abused individual, for it is generally
known that small creatures make the
more noise. It is a sad fact in hu

of some to drag down to their level
all those whose moral and intellect

But they are self-deluded when they
attempt it, only falling so much lower
themselves by the base effort.
