Samuel Johnson quotes

Samuel Johnson

Samuel Johnson

Samuel Johnson
There are few ways in which a man can be more innocently employed than in getting money.

Samuel Johnson
Whatever you have spend less.

Samuel Johnson
His scorn of the great is repeated too often to be real no man thinks much of that which he despises.

Samuel Johnson
Pride is seldom delicate, it will please itself with very mean advantages and envy feels not its own happiness, but when it may be compared with the misery of others

Samuel Johnson
Security will produce danger.

Samuel Johnson
Christianity is the highest perfection of humanity.
