    Ethel the prophet

    Ethel Scrabbs

    Ethel Scrabbs, witch, mystic, visionary, mistress of Lourges, and guardian of The Emerald Toad of Denwick, was born during the great Ulgham storm of 1887 in a hemel near Bilton. Ethel is believed to be the daughter of Morag the Mort of Hampeth who was burnt at the stake in Felton by a marauding band of southern Christians in 1908.

    Ethel, now in her 115th year, lives in a hovel near Rabbit Lonnen.

    And what has Ethel written/proclaimed etc that would make her a prophet?

    Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure . . . than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in a grey twilight that is known as Seahouses.

    I wonder what Ethel was on.

    Perhaps she was in the twilight zone.

    In the battle of life it is not the critic who counts. Not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy cause. Who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.
    --Theodore Roosevelt



    TR said something similar. Would he be a prophet as well?

    she looks like she's been hit with a stun gun.

    All wise words can be traced back to the ancients. rearrange the words and tell someone who is ignorant and you'll be a prophet.

    Toad of denwick huh? I always wondered who was looking after that thing.

    Hi,
    Perhaps so? She is also credited with this little pearl of wisdom (amongst many others); “Wisdom is the domain of the wis, which is now extinct”.
