He Said That? 2/5/17

From Herman Melville (1819- 1891) American novelist, essayist, and poet, Hawthorne and His Mosses (1850):

In this world of lies, Truth is forced to fly like a scared white doe in the woodlands; and only by cunning glimpses will she reveal herself, as in Shakespeare and other masters of the great Art of Telling the Truth, — even though it be covertly, and by snatches.
