quote found while surfing...

I found this at: http://lists.archivists.org.au/pipermail/archivists.org.au/aus-archivists/1999-June/001302.html

"Most Museums, most cultural endeavours, suffer from being subjected to too
much taste, too much elimination, too much selection, too much
specialisation! What we want (in museums and cultural records) is
all-sidedness, side lights, cross-references."

(quote from Percy Grainger in 1941 - quoted in the article "Parallax Error" by Naomi Cass, p. 52)
