Trash Talk with Isaac Watts

September 12, 2013

Isaac Watts - OutlawLGIsaac Watts was a very short man, hovering right around the 5′ mark. In Hood’s book, “Isaac Watts; His Life and Writings, His Homes and Friends,” the following anecdote is related. Once, when Watts was in a coffeehouse, he was in the way of a very tall man who was trying to get by him. He said to Watts:

“Let me pass, O giant!”

Watts replied, “Pass on, O pigmy!”

“I only referred to your mind,” said the giant;

“I also to yours,” replied Watts.
