about 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 the question, but do not answer it; what they may say may be quite true in itself, but it is irrelevant.
"All I know is that you feel good
in the ring." — (1905) by The Game Jack London
"All lies and jest
Still, a man hears what he wants to hear
And disregards the rest"
from "The Boxer" by Simon & Garfunkel

...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
by Christmas Bells Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
