Quote: Samuel Johnson (1709-1784),

'I told him I had been that morning at a meeting of the people called Quakers, where I had heard a woman preach. Johnson: "Sir, a woman's preaching is like a dog's walking on his hind legs. It is not done well; but you are surprised to find it done at all."'
Samuel Johnson, quoted in Boswell’s Life of Samuel Johnson
