"Just as to be sloppy in a cave is to risk falling or damaging ancient formations, to be sloppy on the page is to risk an insight’s evaporating in mid-sentence. For most writers, discoveries are elusive and more likely to stay that way unless meticulously chosen words and graceful phrasing converge in a sentence that might get closer to saying what’s more true."
