Dr Johnson Without Variation

DR. JOHNSON was observed by a musical friend of his to be extremely

inattentive at a concert, whilst a celebrated solo player was running up

the divisions and sub-divisions of notes upon his violin. His friend, to

induce him to take greater notice of what was going on, told him how

extremely difficult it was. Difficult, do you call it, sir? replied

the doctor; I wish it were impossible.
