Ephemerae — mere beings of an hour

De:

The Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides,

With Samuel Johnson, LL.D.

By James Boswell, Esq.,

1773: Coll

 

Sunday, 10th October 

“There was this day the most terrible storm of wind and rain that I ever remember. It made such an awful impression on us all, as to produce, for some time, a kind of dismal quietness in the house. The day was passed without much conversation: only, upon my observing that there must be something bad in a man’s mind, who does not like to give leases to his tenants, but wishes to keep them in a perpetual wretched dependence on his will, Dr Johnson said, ‘You are right: it is a man’s duty to extend comfort and security among as many people as he can. He should not wish to have his tenants mere Ephemerae — mere beings of an hour.’ “
