From Boswell's Enlightenment, by Robert Zaretsky
SUCH A DIVERSITY OF MEN
"God would not have formed such a diversity of men if he had intended that they should all come up to a certain standard... Let me then be Boswell and render him as fine a fellow as possible."
From Chapter 7, Waiting for Frederick, quoting Boswell's Holland Journal for July 20.
