This journal: apparently only used when I am being academic.

Have another interesting quote.

A plain unvarnished tale is preferable to the most highly ornamented narrative. Where we see that a man has the power, we may naturally suspect that he has the will to deceive us, and those who are used to literary manufacture know how much is often sacrificed to the rounding of a period or the pointing an antithesis.


From Castle Rackrent preface.
