Caution in Quotation.  Young authors do not know that a good expression or idea only looks well among its peers; that an excellent quotation may spoil whole pages, nay the whole book; for it seems to cry warningly to the reader, "Mark you, I am the precious stone, and round about me is lead — pale, worthless lead”!  Every word, every idea only desires to live in its own company — that is the moral of a choice style.
