Before many years had passed the " harmless drudge," as he himself had defined a lexicographer, had become the acknowledged law- giver and dictator of English letters; he had gathered round him a society of the finest minds of that generation, he had received a public pension which secured his independence, he had begun the long friendship which gave him a second home for more than fifteen years.- "Dr. Johnson and His Circle", John Bailey.
