Dear colleagues

I remember Michael Stubbs once used an analogy in stressing the importance of the advent of corpora to linguists and the analogy is the creation of telescope to astronauts. But I forgot the source. Could anybody direct me to the reference?

Michael, if you could see the query, you are more than welcome to reply youself.
