Clear Your Mind

“My dear friend, clear your mind of cant. You may talk as other people do: you may say to a man, ‘Sir, I am your most humble servant.’ You are not his most humble servant...You may talk in this manner; it is a mode of talking in Society; but don’t think foolishly.”

The Life of Samuel Johnson, LL.D., James Boswell (1791)
