How Samuel Johnson Might’ve Reacted to the Internet

Quote, Rambling

“I saw new worlds hourly bursting upon my mind, and was enraptured at the prospect of diversifying life with endless entertainment.”—The Rambler, 84

On that note, here’s my bet for the next viral hit currently under 10,000 views:



I fear a Man of frugal Speech--
I fear a Silent Man--
Haranguer--I can overtake--
Or Babbler--entertain--

But He who weigheth--While the Rest--
Expend their furthest pound--
Of this Man--I am wary--
I fear that He is Grand--

--Emily Dickinson
