Camelot

Favorite Line(s):
Before you drift
To sleep upon
Your cot,
Think back on all the tales
That you remember
Of Camelot.
Ask ev’ry person
If he’s heard the story,
And tell it
Strong and clear
If he has not,
That once
There was a fleeting wisp
Of glory
Called Camelot.

Since man is a moment in astronomic time, a transient guest of the earth, a spore of his species, a scion of his race, a composite of body, character, and mind, a member of a family and a community, a believer or doubter of a faith, a unit in an economy, perhaps a citizen in a state or a soldier in an army, we may ask under the corresponding heads — astronomy, geology, geography, biology, ethnology, psychology, morality, religion, economics, politics, and war — what history has to say about the nature, conduct, and prospects of man.  It is a precarious enterprise, and only a fool would try to compress a hundred centuries into a hundred pages of hazardous conclusions.  We proceed.
