    How the imagination is piqued by anecdotes of some great man passing incognito, as a king in gray clothes.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Wine makes a man better pleased with himself. I do not say that it makes him more pleasing to others.... This is one of the disadvantages of wine, it makes a man mistake words for thoughts.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    As soon as the harvest is in, you’re a migrant worker. Afterwards just a bum.
    —Nunnally Johnson (1897–1977)

    Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise.
    Bible: Hebrew Proverbs, 6:6.

    The words were rendered by Samuel Johnson in the opening lines of The Ant: “Turn on the prudent ant thy heedful eyes, Observe her labours, sluggard, and be wise.”

    It is a mischievous notion that we are come late into nature; that the world was finished a long time ago. As the world was plastic and fluid in the hands of God, so it is ever to so much of his attributes as we bring to it. To ignorance and sin, it is flint. They adapt to themselves to it as they may; but in proportion as a man has anything in him divine, the firmament flows before him and takes his signet and form.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    They soon became like brothers from community of wrongs;
    They wrote each other little odes and sang each other songs;
    They told each other anecdotes disparaging their wives;
    On several occasions, too, they saved each other’s lives.
    Sir William Schwenck Gilbert (1836–1911)
