perfect to post 'wisdom'.. he does look more bored than wise though ;-)

He has a point - and you a very nice tonal curve.
Gees --- e-mail that to our lawmakers.
Nice picture and a great statement on what laws should be based upon. Too bad that's not always the case.
I read middle to right: "Wisdom is a menace to the state," and figured this sentiment had lots of followers.
What Ahiker said, almost word for word, I swear. Bt I also like the photo, especially the upward angle.

I'm fairly certain I'm not supposed to giggle when I look at this statue, but I can't help it. (I also read the text like Hiker!)
Appellate Division of Supreme Court (NYS). At the 25th Street entrance there are two statues by Frederick Wellington Ruckstuhl: Wisdom and Force. For a detailed description and discussion of the Wisdom sculpture, see this 1899 article in the New York Times archives: http://query.nytimes.com/mem/archive-free/pdf?res=F30917F9395913738DDDA90B94DF405B8985F0D3
I wish our lawmakers would consider this.
