Hazlitt's Portrait


Hazlitt was to observe of Mr. Tooke that he had "the mind of a lawyer, a rigid and constant habit of attending to the exact import of every word and clause in a sentence. ... Mr. Tooke, in fact, treated words, as the chemists do substances; he separated those which are compounded of others from those which are not decompoundable. He did not explain the obscure by the more obscure, but the difficult by the plain, the complex by the simple." (Spirit Of The Age, "Mr. Horne Tooke.")
