Brooklyn Museum - Blind Men Appraising an Elephant - Ohara Donshu.jpg   Illustration inset at page 84 of Indian Fairy Tales (1892).png

Each in his own opinion
Exceeding stiff and strong,
Though each was partly in the right
And all were in the wrong.

So oft in theologic wars,
The disputants, I ween,
Rail on in utter ignorance
Of what each other mean,
And prate about an Elephant
Not one of them has seen!

~ John Godfrey Saxe ~
