“Mankind have a great aversion to intellectual labor; but even supposing knowledge to be easily attainable, more people would be content to be ignorant than would take even a little trouble to acquire it.”

Samuel Johnson, quoted in Boswell’s Life of Johnson
English author, critic, & lexicographer (1709 – 1784)
