NUMBER:4369
AUTHOR:Oliver Goldsmith (1730?–1774)
QUOTATION:One writer, for instance, excels at a plan or a title-page, another works away the body of the book, and a third is a dab at an index. 1

Note 1.
There are two things which I am confident I can do very well: one is an introduction to any literary work, stating what it is to contain, and how it should be executed in the most perfect manner.
Boswell: Life of Johnson, An. 1775. [back]
