Wisdom on Wednesdays—A man, not mankind

Wisdom and prophetic intuition
Abide with a man
Not mankind
A man can remember his origins
And a man can live in apprehension of his end
Not mankind
(1934)

One thought on “Wisdom on Wednesdays—A man, not mankind

  1. Wisdom abides with a man…and we might even note “not necessarily.” Apparently we are lucky if there are even a few who are wise and a few who remember their origins.
