The Old Philosopher

Of "truth" when in print be wary.
Even the deepest tracks in snow are temporary.

    Thank you for taking the time to read me. The point of this two-liner is that not everything that calls itself "truth" is of lasting or permanent merit – hence the even footprints disappear in deep snow. Danke noch einmal. Ved en tilfeldighet, du snakker tysk? Bare nysgjerrig. C.L.
