Precision and Reliability

Myron Bement Smith (1897-1970), "Rejoinder to Arthur Upham Pope's Comment," Journal of the American Oriental Society 77.3 (July-September, 1957) 217-219 (at 219):
To me, precision and reliability are of the very essence if scholarship is to be thought of as a way of life.

"Le Dieu est dans les details:" in these words are exposed the heart of every conscientious architect and every honest builder, no less than of every worthy scholar.
Hat tip: Ian Jackson.
