The Loquacity of Authors.

There is a loquacity of anger frequent in Luther, also in Schopenhauer.  A loquacity which comes from too great a store of conceptual formulae, as in Kant.  A loquacity which comes from delight in ever new modifications of the same idea : one finds it in Montaigne.  A loquacity of malicious natures: whoever reads writings of our period will recollect two authors in this connection.  A loquacity which comes from delight in fine words and forms of speech : by no means rare in Goethe's prose.  A loquacity which comes from pure satisfaction in noise and confusion of feelings : for example in Carlyle.
