From "An Essay on Man" by *The* Reverend Doctor Eric Theodore Cartman III
The proper study of mankind is Man.
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 reas'ning 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 hurl'd;
The glory, jest, and riddle of the world!
These particular unique and original words and ideas of the Reverend Doctor Eric T. Cartman III bear repeating for Reverend Doctor Timothy W. Jensen's benefit. . .
Still by himself abused or disabused. . .
Well at least the ever so eclectic cleric gave Alexander Pope credit where credit was due aka "a little honest attribution".
