The Samuel Johnson Sound Bite Page

Offering "the most comprehensive collection of Samuel Johnson quotes on the web," this site has over 900 sound-bite sized -- well, eighteenth-century sound-bite sized -- quotations from this recognized master of English prose. The quotations are categorized by topic and can be searched using a sophisticated search engine that allows users to specify words, phrases, exact matches, word forms, or synonyms as well as proximity parameters such as page, paragraph, or sentence. The site also provides a brief biography, a starter bibliography of primary and secondary sources, a timeline of Johnson's life, and links to other sites devoted to Dr. Johnson. The frequently updated site is maintained by amateur scholar Frank Lynch, who works in "the marketing research department of a Fortune 500 corporation."
