"The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" is an English-language pangram—a sentence that contains all of the letters of the English alphabet. Owing to its brevity and coherence, it has become widely known. The phrase is commonly used for touch-typing practice, testing typewriters and computer keyboards, displaying examples of fonts, and other applications involving text where the use of all letters in the alphabet is desired.
A 1908 edition of the Los Angeles Herald Sunday Magazine records that when the New York Herald was equipping an office with typewriters "a few years ago", staff found that the common practice sentence of "now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of the party" did not familiarize typists with the entire alphabet, and ran onto two lines in a newspaper column. They write that a staff member named Arthur F. Curtis invented the "quick brown fox" pangram to address this.If you have ever looked for new fonts to download, then ‘the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog’ is a sentence that you have probably seen before.
The quick brown fox isn’t so quick anymore. She sighs, cupping her arthritic fingers around a glass of tea, breathing in the steam. She realizes that she can’t remember the last time she could jump over a dog, lazy or not. But who has the energy? Her hair is graying and her skin wrinkled—and how her joints ache—but still, her dimming, cataract-riddled eyes contain something like hard-won wisdom. “Come, my dears,” she calls weakly to the children playing energetically on the floor around her. “Come and listen while Grandma tells you a story.” There are, in effect, several variations on the theme — but those who now take typing tests or align print fonts in rows have used this first formulation since time out of mind. On Feb. 10, 1885, The Boston Journal cited it as “a favorite copy set by writing teachers for their pupils.” Thereafter, dozens of papers and journals deployed the same 35 letters: “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.” (Source: michigantoday.umich.edu)
