A gentleman, is a rarer thing than some of us think for. Which of us can point out many such in his circle--men whose aims are generous, whose truth is constant and elevated; who can look the world honestly in the face, with an equal manly sympathy for the great and the small? We all know a hundred whose coats are well made, and a score who have excellent manners; but of gentlemen how many? Let us take a little scrap of paper, and each make out his list.More William Makepeace Thackeray quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

The old times live again. Can the heaviest historian do more for me?More William Makepeace Thackeray quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
