Abstract

Thought engenders thought. Place one idea on paper and another will follow, and still another, and you will have written a page. You cannot fathom your mind. There is a well that has no bottom. The more you draw from it, the more clear and fruitful it will be.... But then it should be recollected, that reading and study are the food of thought, and to draw up new thoughts from the "well that has no bottom," that well must be continually fed by living springs. He who would be a good writer must explore the fields of literature and science.
