Quotation of the Day for May 20, 2010

1. See whatever is to be seen.

2. You should see whatever I have not seen.

3. Write down and describe, as faithfully as possible, whatever you see.

4. To write is not to admire; since you are not a painter, paint everything with words.

5. Whenever you can, abandon the footpaths, the worn crossroads of travellers.

6. Correct whatever can be corrected.

- Thomas Gray, author of "Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard". His Maxims In Travelling, translated from Latin, are quoted in The Man Who Made Lists by Joshua Kendall.
