„The reason why so few good books are written is, that so few people that can write know anything.“

— Уолтер Бэджет, Context: The reason why so few good books are written is, that so few people that can write know anything. In general an author has always lived in a room, has read books, has cultivated science, is acquainted with the style and sentiments of the best authors, but he is out of the way of employing his own eyes and ears. He has nothing to hear and nothing to see. His life is a vacuum. Shakespeare

„All novels are, or should be, written for both men and women to read, and I am at loss to conceive how a man should permit himself to write anything that would be really disgraceful to a woman, or why a woman should be censured for writing anything that would be proper and becoming for a man.“

— Anne Brontë, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall
Context: I am satisfied that if a book is a good one, it is so whatever the sex of the author may be. All novels are, or should be, written for both men and women to read, and I am at loss to conceive how a man should permit himself to write anything that would be really disgraceful to a woman, or why a woman should be censured for writing anything that would be proper and becoming for a man. Preface, 2nd edition (22 July 1848)

— Henry Kissinger United States Secretary of State 1923

Wingfield referred to it as a familiar joke in The American University (1970) Unattributed variants: Somebody once said that one of the reasons academic infighting is so vicious is that the stakes are so small. There's so little at stake and they are so nasty about it. The Craft of Crime : Conversations with Crime Writers (1983) by John C. Carr The reason that academic politics is so vicious is that the stakes are so small. Mentioned as an "old saw" in Teachers for Our Nation's Schools (1990) by John I. Goodlad
