"In order that the mind may not be taxed, moreover, by the manifold and confused reading of so many such things, and in order to prevent the escape of something valuable that we have read, heard, or discovered through the process of thinking itself, it will be found very useful to entrust to notebooks ... those things which seem noteworthy and striking."

[Commonplace books: Thomas Farnaby, 17th-century]

What Argus could not see was not worth seeing. The fishy slime of his one hundred eyes Shimmered all over his entire being To lubricate his vision. A Voyeur Of the first order, he would hardly blench At the fine calculations of your dress.

[Canine voyeurs: Anthony Hecht, "Le Masseur de ma Soeur"]
