On intellectual laziness

Resume“Intellectual laziness and the hurry of the age have produced a craving for literary nips.  The torpid brain… has grown too weak for sustained thought.  There never was an age in which so many people were able to write badly.”

Israel Zangwill, the Bachelor’s Club, 1891
