The Hazlitt passage is from an old Signet classic paperback. Selected Writings of William Hazlitt, edited by Christopher Salvesen. It is the 17th Conversation of James Northcote from The Atlas, April 19 and 26, 1829. I can't remember where exactly, but in Tolstoy's novel Anna Karenina, the character Levin has similar thoughts.

Thank you sir. I'd say I'm still up for this exercise, but only in regards to having an opponent to engage against. Otherwise... I guess Snarking and Commentary shall remain the order of the day around here.
