Opinion is a flitting thing,
But Truth, outlasts the Sun --
If then we cannot own them both --
Possess the oldest one --

In this current phase of human evolution, this poem could be a very simple guide for quieting the mind, deciding who to vote for, and a reminder that critical thinking is to be stressed above many other forms of thought patterns.
Thank you, Emily!
