It's by Ralph Hodgson, an English poet, and I love it. It reminds me that truth is personal, that a closed mind may not see, and that more truth can be discovered if a mind is prepared to accept it. On the surface, this may sound too philosophical to be of value in the field of investing. However, I think it's perfectly appropriate, especially as regards keeping an open mind about what might come next.
It also works in regard to the power of charts. Non-believers simply don't understand their power to reveal the forces at work in the market, while those who understand would sooner invest according to the charts alone than by fundamentals alone.
