[Michael Quinn]
He [Leonard J. Arrington] said [that] my writing is sometimes tendentious. Some of my undergraduate professors sometimes said about the same thing of my research papers. I tend to drive home my arguments and use my evidence too strongly.

[From the diaries and memoirs of D. Michael Quinn, in 'On Writing Mormon History, 1972-95,' edited by Joseph Geisner, Signature Books, 2020]
