Final Word

April 19, 1996

This week's Final Word comes from an old Etonian who was no relation to Labour's Tony:

"We must add to our heritage or lose it, we must grow greater or grow less, we must go forward or backward. I believe in England, and I believe we shall go forward."

The winner of last week's competition, who correctly identified Rainer Maria Rilke's Duino Elegies , is Geoff Ward of the University of Dundee.
