Anthony Sargeant comments on the use of quotations

Standard

Actually not my comment but that of Sir Hugo to Daniel in the novel Daniel Deronda by George Eliot :

“….. much quotation of any sort … is bad. One couldn’t carry on life comfortably without a little blindness to the fact that everything has been said better than we can put it ourselves.”
