    There are two things which cannot be attacked in front: ignorance and narrow-mindedness. They can only be shaken by the simple development of the contrary qualities. They will not bear discussion.

    Oh for some honest lover’s ghost,
    Some kind unbodied post

    Those that their mistress’ scorn did bear,
    Or those that were used kindly.
