Preface to a Dictionary of the English Language Samuel Johnson Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

It is the fate of those who toil at the lower employments of life, to be rather driven by the fear of evil, than attracted by the prospect of good; to be exposed to censure, without hope of praise; to be disgraced by miscarriage, or punished for neglect, where success would have been without applause, and diligence without reward.
