Sanskrit blog: Dr.Samuel Johnson

सारमेयगतिः

पद्भ्यां हि गच्छन् यदि सारमेयः

जनप्रशंसां लभते कदाचन ।

सा केवलं तस्य गतेः सुशक्यताम्

न चारुतां सूचयतीति निश्चितम् ॥

Adaptation of a quotation from Dr. Samuel Johnson, “ Sir, a woman’s preaching is like a dog’s walking on his hind legs. It is not done well; but you are surprised it is done at all.”
