Free at Last. Free at Last...

If you happen to have read the "Quote Me" piece, which has been featured on the homepage of this site for a shamelessly long time, you are aware of my conundrum concerning the misattribution of inspirational quotations. Thanks to fearless reader, Bill Osmet, the mysterious Allan K Chalmers has come in from the cold. Check out the link. He was a quite an accomplished scholar and a mentor to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Why this never came up on my previous google expeditions I cannot explain. My misspelling of his first name? Improvements in the search engines in the three years since I wrote the piece? Myopia? Whatever it was I'm more than happy to give credit where it is due. I've even found another Allan Knight Chalmers quote I like even more than the last one I co-opted, "A man gets thin if he does not read, becomes inaccurate if he does not write, but most of all loses a profoundness if he does not think."
As Einstein famously said, "I must a little think now."
