This is from memory, but it's a bit of cognitive therapy that I only needed to read once for it to stay with me.

Does this come up in the standard flamewars about if literary quality has any objective meaning? I don't recall it off hand, but I generally skim over those.

I haven't read them in any great detail, but I haven't especially seen it in play.

PREACH IT, SISTER. I dearly love this quote, and I shall fondly steal it for my own use. Thank you.
