Nothing is more common in the replies of untrained students to questions than the happy-go-lucky kind of answers which bear upon the general subject, but are aside from the point. Persons may write or speak about the question, but do not answer it; what they may say may be quite true in itself, but it is irrelevant.

"All lies and jest
Still, a man hears what he wants to hear
And disregards the rest"

...It was as if an earthquake rent
The hearth-stones of a continent,
          And made forlorn
          The households born
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

And in despair I bowed my head;
"There is no peace on earth," I said:
          "For hate is strong,
          And mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!"

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
"God is not dead; nor doth he sleep!
          The Wrong shall fail,
          The Right prevail,
With peace on earth, good-will to men!"

—from Christmas Bells by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

A favour to ask[edit]

Gday. I have been doing some maintenance and have moved a text to an image set, that we had. Would you mind validating Index:Bell Buoy McClure 1897. Thanks, if you can. — billinghurst sDrewth 13:00, 27 June 2014 (UTC)
