A Way With Words?

"We return here upon an ineluctable problem: that those for whom writing is like 'bearing a part in the conversation' must regard with incomprehension those for whom it is 'blindness' and 'perplexity' and that those for whom 'composition' is a struggle with dark and disputed matter will inevitably dismiss as mere worldliness the ability to push on pragmatically with the matter in hand."
