Saturday’s Piece

“There are three Johns:
1. The real John, known only to his maker.
2. John’s ideal John, never the real one, and often very unlike him.
3. Thomas’s ideal John, never the real John, nor John’s John, but often very unlike either.”

(Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr, 1809 – 1894, American physician, poet, and polymath)
