A Quote by W. E. B. Du Bois on age, good, lies, men, poverty, tragedy, and truth

Herein lies the tragedy of the age: not that men are poor - all men know something of poverty; not that men are wicked - who is good? Not that men are ignorant - what is truth? Nay, but that men know so little of men.

W. E. B. Du Bois (1868 - 1963)
