Quote of the Day

"A cloud of critics, of compilers, of commentators darkened the face of learning, and the decline of genius was soon followed by the corruption of taste."

[I spotted this gobbet from The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire the other day in David Mitchell's Cloud Atlas and it hastened me to reflect on the awful hall of mirrors my professional existence had become in the last few years before I left London.]
