This week's Final Word comes from the private jottings of a 'gambler':
"Mankind is therefore nothing but disguise, lies, and hypocrisy, both as individuals and with regard to others. They therefore do not want to be told the truth. They avoid telling it to others. And all these tendencies, so remote from justice and reason, are naturally rooted in their heart."
The winner of last week's competition, who identified P. G. Wodehouse's Heavy Weather , is Martin Diedrichof Keele University.
