    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteDECIDE, v.i. To succumb to the preponderance of one set of influences over another set.



A leaf was riven from a tree,

"I mean to fall to earth," said he.



The west wind, rising, made him veer.

"Eastward," said he, "I now shall steer."



The east wind rose with greater force. Said he: "'Twere wise to change my course."



With equal power they contend. He said: "My judgment I suspend."



Down died the winds; the leaf, elate, Cried: "I've decided to fall straight."



"First thoughts are best?" That's not the moral; Just choose your own and we'll not quarrel.



Howe'er your choice may chance to fall, You'll have no hand in it at all. --G.J.
