“A dinner of fragments is often said to be the best dinner; so there are
few minds but might furnish some instruction and entertainment of their
scraps, their odds and ends of thoughts. They who cannot weave a uniform
web, may at least produce a piece of patchwork.”
GUESSES AT TRUTH.
“ To the man of robust and healthy intellect, who gathers the harvest of
literature into his barn, thrashes the straw, winnows the grain, grinds it in
his own mill, bakes it in his own oven, and then eats the true bread of
knowledge, we bid a cordial welcome.”
