''Yet we may consider that, though journalism may kill a man, it quickens his life while it lasts--of all men in educated callings, unless he has a college fellowship to rest upon, he is least able to let himself degenerate into the too well-known type described by La Fontaine: 'Il se leve un matin sans savoir pourquoi faire. / Il se promene, il va, i dessein, sans sujet. / Il se couche le soir sans savoir d'ordinaire / Ce que dans le jour il a fait.'
