Samuel Johnson
“... the world cannot reward those qualities which are concealed from it”
Samuel Johnson

Samuel Johnson
“Ind the endless variety of tastes and circumstances that diversify mankind, nothing is so superfluous but that someone desires it; or so common but that someone is compelled to buy it.”
Samuel Johnson

Samuel Johnson
“To fix the thoughts by writing, and subject them to frequent examinations and reviews, is the best method of enabling the mind to detect its own sophisms, and keep it on guard against the fallacies which it practises on others: in conversation we naturally diffuse our thoughts, and in writing we contract them; method is the excellence of writing, and unconstraint the grace of conversation. To read, write, and converse in due proportions is, therefore, the business of a man of letters.”
Samuel Johnson

Samuel Johnson
“Many complain of neglect who never tried to attract regard.”
Samuel Johnson

Samuel Johnson
“... he that lives today as he lived yesterday, and expects that, as the present day is, such will be the morrow, easily conceives time as running in a circle and returning to itself. The uncertainty of our duration is impressed commonly by dissimilitude of condition; it is only by finding life changeable that we are reminded of its shortness.”
Samuel Johnson
