As for equivocations, or oraculous
speeches, they cannot hold out long.
Should kings and nations from thy mouth consult, Thy counsel would be as the oracle Urim and Thummim, those oraculous
gems On Aaron's breast, or tongue of Seers old Infallible; or, wert thou sought to deeds That might require the array of war, thy skill Of conduct would be such that all the world Could not sustain thy prowess, or subsist In battle, though against thy few in arms.
"The Fuzzy Philosopher" (Oraculous
Tales Volume 2) is a chapter book that takes the members of the Moo-Cow gang back through time to ancient Greece where they learn from philosophy teacher Socrates to "question everything." Educational sidebars contain excellent bytes of information about Greek philosophy and history, and humor and adventure play a major role in teaching kids ages 7-10 important steps in learning how to think critically.
Whereby is evident the Oraculous
authority of tradition, and the easie seduction of men, neither enquiring into the verity of their substance, nor reforming upon repugnance of circumstance.
