Quote of the Day (Coventry Patmore, on Why ‘The World’s Course Will Not Fail’)

“For want of me the world’s course will not fail:
When all its work is done, the lie shall rot;   
The truth is great, and shall prevail,   
When none cares whether it prevail or not.” — English poet and literary critic Coventry Patmore (1823–1896), “Magna Est Veritas,” in The Oxford Book of Victorian Verse, edited by Arthur Quiller-Couch (1922)
