The blind men and the elephant - Pam Lane Photography
The parable of the blind men and the elephant has been around centuries. In the 1800s, John Godfrey Saxe turned the parable into a poem, The Blind Men and the Elephant. It was six men of Indostan To learning much inclined, Who went to see the Elephant (Though all of them were blind), That each by observation Might satisfy his mind. The First approached the Elephant, And happening to fall Against his broad and sturdy side, At once began to bawl: “God bless me! but the Elephant Is very like a WALL!“
