A Quote by Dr. Samuel Johnson on age, credulity, day, history, hope, listening, promises, present, and youth

Ye who listen with credulity to the whispers of fancy, and pursue with eagerness the phantoms of hope; who expect that age will perform the promises of youth, and that the deficiencies of the present day will be supplied by the morrow, - attend to the history of Rasselas, Prince of Abyssinia.

Samuel Johnson (1709 - 1784)
