Samuel Johnson

Statue of Samuel Johnson outside his house in Litchfield. Johnson, the first lexicographer was a devout Christian.

I have now spent fifty-five years in resolving: having, from the earliest time almost that I can remember, been forming plans of a better life. I have done nothing. The need of doing, therefore, is pressing, since the time of doing is short. O GOD, grant me to resolve aright, and to keep my resolutions, for Jesus Christ's sake. Amen. -- Samuel Johnson
