When a nature is originally receptiveFinal examinations approach, and with them the discovery of the bad iron. But consider this before you fail everybody.
Instruction will take effect thereon.
No kind of polishing will improve iron
Whose essence is originally bad.
Wash a dog in the seven oceans,
He will be only dirtier when he gets wet.
If the ass of Jesus be taken to Mekkah
He will on his return still be an ass.
