Hallmarks of a Mature Scholar

J. Linderski, "Agnes Kirsopp Michels and the Religio," Classical Journal 92.4 (April-May 1997) 323-345 (at 328):
This youthful work shows all the hallmarks of a mature scholar: painstaking attention to detail, dogged hunt for facts, distrust of fancy theories, and independence of mind.
Id., p. 336, n. 31:
[B]efore we proceed to a literary or historical study we have first to know in the analyzed text the sense of every word, in all its applications and shades, a step all too often omitted.
