Samuel Johnson

“Of the blessings set before you make your choice, and be content. No man can taste the fruits of autumn while he is delighting his scent with the flowers of the spring: no man can, at the same time, fill his cup from the source and from the mouth of the Nile.”


Samuel Johnson, The History of Rasselas, Prince of Abissinia
