Title
Human nature is originally good. Any evil in it results from the changes made upon it by external things. Of man's first disobedience and the fruit of that forbidden tree whose mortal taste brought death into the world for all our woe. --Lu Wang (1139-1192), Chinese Philosopher and John Milton's Paradise Lost. From the series Great Ideas.
