The wide stare stared itself out for one while; the Sun went down in a red, green, golden glory; the stars came out in the heavens, and the fire-flies mimicked them in the lower air, as men may feebly imitate the goodness of a better order of beings; the long dusty roads and the interminable plains were in repose--and so deep a hush was on the sea, that it scarcely whispered of the time when it shall give up its dead. ~ Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens He had a certain air of being a handsome man--which he was not; and a certain air of being a well-bred man--which he was not. It was mere swagger and challenge; but in this particular, as in many others, blustering assertion goes for proof, half over the world. ~ Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens "She had gained a reputation for beauty, and (which is often another thing) was beautiful." ~ Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens Melancholy streets, in a penitential garb of soot, steeped the souls of the people who were condemned to look at them out of windows, in dire despondency. ~ Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens "I am the only child of parents who weighed, measured, and priced everything; for whom what could not be weighed, measured, and priced, had no existence." ~ Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens While the flowers, pale and unreal in the moonlight, floated away upon the river; and thus do greater things that once were in our breasts, and near our hearts, flow from us to the eternal seas. ~ Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens It is not easy to walk alone in the country without musing upon something. ~ Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens Mr. Arthur Clennam took up his hat and buttoned his coat, and walked out. In the country, the rain would have developed a thousand fresh scents, and every drop would have had its bright association with some beautiful form of growth or life. In the city, it developed only foul stale smells, and was a sickly, lukewarm, dirt-stained, wretched addition to the gutters. ~ Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens It came like magic in a pint bottle; it was not ecstasy but it was comfort. ~ Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens "Once a gentleman, and always a gentleman." ~ Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens
