Young ladies may have been crossed in love, and have had their sufferings, their frantic moments of grief and tears, their wakeful nights, and so forth; but it is only in very sentimental novels that people occupy themselves perpetually with that passion, and I believe what are called broken hearts are a very rare article indeed.More William Makepeace Thackeray quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Everybody in Vanity Fair must have remarked how well those live who are comfortably and thoroughly in debt; how they deny themselves nothing; how jolly and easy they are in their minds.More William Makepeace Thackeray quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Novels are sweets. All people with healthy literary appetites love them-almost all women; a vast number of clever, hardheaded men.More William Makepeace Thackeray quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Forgotten tones of love recur to us, and kind glances shine out of the past--oh so bright and clear!--oh so longed after!--because they are out of reach; as holiday music from within a prison wall--or sunshine seen through the bars; more prized because unattainable--more bright because of the contrast of present darkness and solitude, whence there is no escape.More William Makepeace Thackeray quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
