Having been reminded, nearly two years later, to look it up, I am delighted to find that I have once again created the only Google-search citation for a quotation, one which I acknowledged at the time was probably an ill-favored misquotation, but mine own.

Item: Samuel Johnson's "Depend upon it, sir, when a man knows he is to be hanged in a fortnight, it concentrates his mind wonderfully."

Which I rendered, on January 13, 2013, as "The sure knowledge that one is to be hanged in a fortnight concentrates the mind most wonderfully."

It was pleasant to rediscover that post, and to delete some wondrously unconcentrated spamming comments that didn't add enough surreal content to make them worth retaining.
