Five quotes by Samuel Johnson

Samuel Johnson (18 September 1709 [O.S. 7 September] – 13 December 1784), often referred to as Dr Johnson, was an English author who made lasting contributions to English literature as a poet, essayist, moralist, literary critic, biographer, editor and lexicographer. Johnson was a devout Anglican and committed Tory, and has been described as 'arguably the most distinguished man of letters in English history'. He is also the subject of 'the most famous single work of biographical art in the whole of literature': James Boswell's Life of Samuel Johnson.
 Marriage has many pains, but celibacy has no pleasures. 
 Of all noises, I think music is the least disagreeable. 
 Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel. 
 She was so glad to see me go that I have almost a mind to come again, that she may again have the same pleasure. 
 There is nothing which has yet been contrived by man by which so much happiness is produced as by a good tavern.
