A genuine enthusiasm for the second-rate is much better than false enthusiasm or no enthusiasm at all. Be neither hasty nor timorous in making your judgments. When you have attentively read a poem and thoroughly considered it, decide what you think. Do not hedge, equivocate, or try to find out others' opinions before forming your own. But having formed an opinion and expressed it, do not allow it to petrify.

The heart embraces all things in their great variety and the heart loves them all.Arnold Albert Van Ruler Petrify Sayings By Arnold Albert Van Ruler: We are to allow one thing to be really and truly distinct from the other,
