Daily Dose

From The Selected Rambler, by Samuel Johnson


"Such, Mr. Rambler, are the changes which have happened in the narrow space where my present fortune has fixed my residence.  So true is it that amusement and instruction are always at hand for those who have skill and willingness to find them; and so just is the observation of Juvenal, that a single house will show whatever is done or suffered in the world."

From Rambler 161, A Garret and Its Tenants
