Dr. Samuel Johnson
(1707 - 1784)
When the people criticised and answered his pamphlets, papers, etc. "Why now, these fellows are only advertising my book (he would say); it is surely better a man should be abused than forgotten."
Dr. Samuel Johnson
(1707 - 1784)
You may abuse a tragedy, though you cannot write one. You may scold a carpenter who has made you a bad table, though you cannot make a table. It is not your trade to make tables.
