Final Word

January 12, 1996

This week's Final Word comes from a poet and novelist who studied architecture:

"He left alone creeds and systems of philosophy, finding enough and more than enough to occupy his tongue in the opinions and actions common to all good men. Some believed him, and some believed not; some said that his words were commonplace, others complained of his want of theological doctrine; while others again remarked that it was well enough for a man to take to preaching who could not see to do anything else. But everywhere he was kindly received, for the story of his life had become generally known."

The winner of last week's competition, who identified H. G. Wells's The War of the Worlds , is C. J. Barrow of Sketty, Swansea.
