Daily Dose

From Studies in Some Famous Letters, by John Cann Bailey


"No man of sense, indeed, would occupy himself with writing about books, if he were confined to sifting the new ones, of which the great majority must perforce be of little value, and never allowed to talk of the old ones, where the sifting has been long done, and there is nothing more to do but enjoy."

From Johnson
