    Good little student does plan future, but future plan does student little good.

    Better doctors like people treated well because well-treated people like doctors better.

    Are we not drawn onward, we few, [but obviously not you] to new era?

    IMO, this is much better than your well-known shorter offering.
    (But it's a pity about the missing article.)

    That is an interesting one, it reads slightly differant in the
    opposite direction but is 31 letters long, pretty long. I saw some
    referance to a love letter written that was over two hundred letters
    long, was that you mentioned it? forget the author, might have been
    by the guy that wrote the Inigma Variations, Elgar, he was into puzzles
    and put them in his music.
