unable to afford to buy most of the chief scholarship. That's what
libraries and colleagues are for.

I did not create the norms and standards of scholarship. But then, the
wisdom of the Internet age is doubtlessly superior to that of the
generations and centuries of scholars and scholarship that preceded and
developed those standards.
