This was such a great quotation I couldn't resist putting it here - I thought it might link any number of topics.

How Prologues into Prefaces decay,
And these to Notes are fritter'd quite away:
How Index-learning turns no student pale,
Yet holds the eel of science by the tail.

Alexander Pope - The Dunciad
