 ...given a subject with really strong poetic possibilities in it, sharpness and detail will go a long way to render it commonplace. (1889) 
 It need hardly be said that all beginners and many old stagers go straight for the smallest stop they dare use in order to make sure getting all sharp. If the object is what we may call scientific, well and good, but if there be anything worthy of artistic representation in the picture selected, such a procedure will certainly tend to lose, suppress, or distract attention from it. (1889)
