Charles Dickens

  • A loving heart is the truest wisdom.

  • It's over, and can't be helped, and that's one consolation, as they always say in Turkey, when they cut the wrong man's head off.

  • Any man may be in good spirits and good temper when he's well dressed. There ain't much credit in that.

  • Time is the greatest and longest - established spinner of all... His factory is a secret place, his work noiseless, and his hands are mutes.

  • One always beings to forgive a place as soon as it's left behind.

  • This is world of action, and not for moping and droning in.

  • If there were no bad people, there would be no good lawyers.

  • Once a gentleman, always a gentleman.

  • Credit is a system whereby a person who can not pay gets another person who can not pay to guarantee that he can pay.

  • Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has many; not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.

  • It is a far, far better thing that I do, than anything I have ever done; it is a far, far, better rest that I go to than I have ever known.

  • A day wasted on others is not wasted on one's self.

  • An idea, like a ghost, must be spoken to a little before it will explain itself.

  • I have known a vast quantity of nonsense talked about bad men not looking you in the face. Don't trust that conventional idea. Dishonesty will stare honesty out of countenance, any day in the week, if there is anything to be got by it.

  • Minds, like bodies, will often fall into a pimpled, ill - conditioned state from mere excess of comfort.

  • He had but one eye, and the pocket of prejudice runs in favour of two.

  • Great men are seldom over - scrupulous in the arrangement of their attire.

  • Charity beings at home, and justice begins next door.

  • Dignity, and even holiness too, sometimes, are more question of coat and waistcoat than some people imagine.
