Charles Dickens

English writer, novelist and essayist
Cheerfulness and contentment are great beautifiers, and are fatuous preservers of youthful looks.More Charles Dickens quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Change begets change. Nothing propagates so fast. If a man habituated to a narrow circle of cares and pleasures, out of which he seldom travels, step beyond it, though for never so brief a space, his departure from the monotonous scene on which he has been an actor of importance would seem to be the signal for instant confusion. The mine which Time has slowly dug beneath familiar objects is sprung in an instant; and what was rock before, becomes but sand and dust.More Charles Dickens quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The night was dark, and a cold wind blew, driving the clouds, furiously and fast, before it. There was one black, gloomy mass that seemed to follow him: not hurrying in the wild chase with the others, but lingering sullenly behind, and gliding darkly and stealthily on. He often looked back at this, and, more than once, stopped to let it pass over; but, somehow, when he went forward again, it was still behind him, coming mournfully and slowly up, like a shadowy funeral train.More Charles Dickens quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In seasons of pestilence, some of us will have a secret attraction to the disease--a terrible passing inclination to die of it.More Charles Dickens quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The day was made for laziness, and lying on one's back in green places, and staring at the sky till its brightness forced one to shut one's eyes and go to sleep...More Charles Dickens quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
