Hawke's Bay Research Lodge No. 305


A quotation from Eric McCormick, an expatriate Kiwi writer and scholar who lived and worked in England during the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s
As printed in Michael King’s Being Pakeha Now (published 1999)

“The function of a scholar was analogous to that of the coral organism.

One lays down one’s own skeleton on the heap of bones left by others, who by so doing have built up a patterned structure.

One also does it for the benefit of later comers, who will in turn lay their remains on yours.
It is the inclusive effect of this accretion that creates meaning, not the individual contribution.”
