Lessons from Liddell, Part 2

Liddell's work ethic:

In the interval between one Lecture and another he would
be found standing at his desk over his interleaved
copy of the first edition, correcting and amending
it. And that standing desk recalls his advice which
I have ever since treasured both in reading and
in writing: " Keep your books open, ready to be
returned to when you come back to work." '
From H. L. Lewis, Henry George Liddell, Dean of Christchurch: A Memoir. 1899: p. 48.
