I have a cold. My throat hurts, I'm coughing like a dying donkey and my head is too fuzzy for blog ideas. So here's one of my favourite quotes for now:
Scholars get their knowledge with conscientious thoroughness along projected lines of logic; poets theirs cavalierly and as it happens in and out of books. They stick to nothing deliberately, but let what will stick to them like burrs where they walk in the fields.
