George, you are perhaps the one of a million that have said these same words, but your use of "steadily" is interesting...

Mike, Norwalk

No matter who claims the title or definition of truth, natural law is absolute and consistent. The more steady the pursuit of false philosophies, the greater the loss of liberty there is.

E Archer, NYC

If 'the Truth shall set you free' and the pursuit of truth never ends, then the process of pusuing truth is a process of liberation that never ends. So steady as she goes. ;-)
