It is easy to hate and it is difficult to love. This is how the whole scheme of things works. All good things are difficult to achieve; and bad things are very easy to get. — Confucius

Men of Iron - Howard Pyle



This classic tells the story of the coming of age of a young squire, living in England at the turn of the 15th century. The action starts just a few months after the treacherous Richard II was deposed, and replaced on the throne by his cousin, Henry IV. Myles Falworth was the son of one of the counselors of Richard II, and his youth and coming of age is much influenced by the accompanying palace politics.
