Fun quote from the not-so-fun night of thesis writing:
On the doorway of Doctor Zacharias Ursinus at Heidelberg, circa 1590:
“My friend, whoever you are, if you come here, please either go away again, or give me some help in my studies.”-Fox-Bourne’s Life of Sidney, qtd. in Howard 43.
This might have to go on the door of my study carrel.
