C.N. Douglas, comp. Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical. 1917.
Suggestion is generally better than Definition. There is a seeming dogmatism about Definition that is often repellent, while Suggestion, on the contrary, disarms suspicion and summons to co-operation and experiment. Definition provokes discussion. Suggestion provokes to love and good works. Defining is limiting, Suggestion is enlarging. Defining calls a halt; Suggestion calls for an advance. Defining involves the peril of contentment: I am here, I rest. Thus far, says Definition, and draws a map. Westward, cries Suggestion, and builds a boat.
