HIT OR MISS.
No country, that has been explored, is infested by dragons;
Unexplored countries are fascinating.
No misers are generous;
Some old men are not generous.
A prudent man shuns hyænas;
No banker is imprudent.
Some poetry is original;
No original work is producible at will.
No misers are unselfish;
None but misers save egg-shells.
All pale people are phlegmatic;
No one, who is not pale, looks poetical.
All spiders spin webs;
Some creatures, that do not spin webs, are savage.
None of my cousins are just;
All judges are just.
John is industrious;
No industrious people are unhappy.
Umbrellas are useful on a journey;
What is useless on a journey should be left behind.
Some pillows are soft;
No pokers are soft.
I am old and lame;
No old merchant is a lame gambler.
