We strive to teach the untaught by prodding persons to think the hitherto unthought.
-March 7th, 1847
From a letter written by Nathaniel Dubbles to the reformer Henry Trask
Most enlightened types, mindful of the dangers that holes and stumps may pose, are content to plod forward in the name of progress. Others, more cavalier and less numerous, blaze in the direction of that bright tomorrow to which we are heir. Yet, to a tittle of wariness they hold fast, as they know not what stands three paces before them.
We, the brave souls of The Dandy Goat, do more. Chins proudly raised, and our eyes firmly closed, we sprint ahead of the rest and strive to fall off that luminous cliff — before anyone else even sees it.
