Open your eyes, train your ears, use your head. If a mind you have, then use it while you can.

America is the wealthiest nation on Earth, but its people are mainly poor, and poor Americans are urged to hate themselves. Every other nation has folk traditions of men who were poor but extremely wise and virtuous, and therefore more estimable than anyone with power and gold. No such tales are told by American poor. They mock themselves and glorify their betters.

Immortal were the Elves, and their wisdom waxed from age to age, and no sickness nor pestilence brought death to them.
