“I would tell the tale as I have heard
fragments of it in the Hall of Dreams,
in the palace of the Heart of Man…”
– Henry Van Dyke, 1896,
The Other Wise Man
Van Dyke's The Other Wise Man
was made into a movie in 1985
starring Alan Arkin and Martin Sheen.
The movie is called The Fourth Wise Man.
Here's another perspective from
Henry Van Dyke:
“It is better to burn the candle at both ends,
and in the middle, too, than to put it away
in the closet and let the mice eat it.”
Amen, Henry, Amen.
