"As inclination leads..."

Via Anecdotal Evidence, Samuel Johnson, July 14, 1763:
Idleness is a disease which must be combated; but I would not advise a rigid adherence to a particular plan of study. I myself have never persisted in any plan for two days together. A man ought to read just as inclination leads him; for what he reads as a task will do him little good.
