Guess Who

I thought we'd do something different today. I'm leaving out the first line of this epitaph because it reveals the author.

Like the cover of an old book,

Its contents torn out,

And stripped of its lettering and gilding

Lies here, food for worms;

Yet the work itself shall not be lost,

For it will appear once more,

In a new,

And more beautiful edition,

Corrected and amended

By the AUTHOR.

Can you guess who wrote this epitaph? No looking it up on the Search Engines. Check in Friday for the answer. :)

My Sunday School lesson this last Sunday was on America's Christian Heritage. This was one of the quotes I used so I'm not going to give it away. You can tell me to go fly a kite if you want, but I'm keeping the answer to myself

HiWalk -

Let's see if anyone else knows the answer. Shh, for now, we'll keep it a secret. :)
