Milton on the Strength of Truth in a Free Society

Daily Dabble in the Classics, John Milton

And though all the winds of doctrine were let loose to play upon the earth, so Truth be in the field, we do injuriously . . . to misdoubt her strength. Let her and Falsehood grapple; who ever knew Truth put to the worse, in a free and open encounter?
