TT: Almanac

"An artist must pass judgment only on what he understands; his range is limited as that of any other specialist--that's what I keep repeating and insisting upon. Anyone who says that the artist's field is all answers and no questions has never done any writing or had any dealings with imagery. An artist observes, selects, guesses and synthesizes."

Anton Chekhov, letter to A.S. Suvorin (Oct. 27, 1888)
