 "The necessary conceit of the essayist must be that in writing down what is obvious to him he is not wasting his reader’s time. The value of what he does will depend on the quality of his perception, not on the length of his manuscript."
--  From the Land of Shadows, Clive James (1982)

Hat-tip to Andrew Gelman.
