A Questing Courage

by Peter Saint-Andre

You say you know which course is best?
Then let us put it to the test!
The action will prove false or true
If we but give the trial its due.
But if you say experiment
Won't yield an answer, then we've spent
Our energy on fruitless chatter
That never can decide the matter.

(cf. The Joyful Learning, §41, §51)
