The MMOB Daily Quote - August 22nd

Today's quote is from James Boswell.

Boswell was a Scottish lawyer and author, best known for his biography of Samuel Johnson. Interestingly, his name is the genesis for the term Boswellian which refers to a constant companion and observer. Appropriate, given the nature of today's quote.

"We cannot tell the precise moment when friendship is formed. As in filling a vessel drop by drop, there is a last drop which makes it run over; so in a series of kindnesses there is at last one which makes the heart run over."

The portrait of Mr. Boswell was painted by George Willison in 1765.

Cheers! - Jason
