Samuel Johnson

“Our minds, like our bodies, are in continual flux; something is hourly lost, and something acquired.... Do not suffer life to stagnate; it will grow muddy for want of motion: commit yourself again to the current of the world.”


Samuel Johnson, The History of Rasselas, Prince of Abissinia
