Bless you, Sir Walter Besant, you’ve made my morning.

‘The general—the Philistine—view of the Profession, is, first of all, that
it is not one which a scholar and a man of serious views should take up:
the telling of stories is inconsistent with a well-balanced mind; to be a
teller of stories disqualifies one from a hearing on important subjects.’

From The Art of Fiction. 😀
