Quotable #71: Sleight of Hand


As lookers-on feel most delight,
That least perceive the Juggler’s Slight,
And still the less they understand,
The more th’ admire his Slight of Hand.

— Samuel Butler, Hudibras, 1684

  1. Beautiful words. I am always amazed by the skill of magicians and others. You never know what may happen next, much like a writer taking an idea into the unknown. Hmm, perhaps I have a little magic in my writing journey. I enjoy your posts.
