  • Sampson Strong Reads; a Tale

    [*Author’s Note: This is a work of fiction. Any similarities between a character in this tale and any person living or dead are merely coincidental.] “No song need be unsung if you unbridle your heart, unburden your soul and free your mind.” “Just because you should does not mean you can, but just because you cannot right now does not mean you won’t in the future. And, remember, there are those who can and won’t at any time. It is the will that is the controlling factor.” “The meaning of meaning stems from the seeming of seeming.” Mr. Sampson Strong sat reading quotes from Sir Wilbury W. Wadsworth’s, Worthwhile Words to the Wise, 7th Edition. Strong had been feeling less than strong lately and was seeking inspiration where he could find it. Wadsworth’s compilation of quotes, anecdotes and short stories was a good starting point for gaining inspiration and strength, as well as insight into the human condition.
