There is nothing which has yet been contrived by man by which so much happiness is produced as by a good tavern or inn.
Source: Life of Johnson (Boswell). Vol. vi. Chap. iii. 1776.
Men hate more steadily than they love.
Hope is itself a species of happiness, and perhaps, the chief happiness which this world affords.
