Daily Dose

From Sartor Resartus, by Thomas Carlyle

"Toward anything like a Statistics of Imposture, indeed, little as yet has been done: Tables for minor Branches of Industry, have altogether overlooked the grand all-overtopping Hypocrisy Branch; as if our whole arts of Puffery, of Quackery, Priestcraft, Kingcraft, and the innumerable other crafts and mysteries of that genus, had not ranked in Productive Industry at all!"

From Chapter 3, Pedagogy
