I Am Perusing

It is one of the reasons for wandering through the virtual halls of LJ, you know; things to read. Things to learn by reading.

I've heard or read a part of this quote, for example, one hell of a lot recently, let's say over the past eight years. Now, shame on me for not a) realising it to be a quote and b) not then researching it to learn that it is a longer quote than often seen. Oh, and I put it in my LJ Profile quite deliberately.

"My country, right or wrong; if right, to be kept right; and if wrong, to be set right."
Carl Schurz

I am particularly glad to learn that today. In part because I look to a lot of other commemorative dates as well, and for that reason another bit of a quote (and I will tell you now what I put in here is not the full quote. However, the ellipsis I'll tag on the end should let you know that, eh?) keeps running through my head. All day, it's been rambling about up there. Perhaps an easy thing to do these days, that rambling.
