To surround anything, however monstrous or ridiculous, with an air of mystery, is to invest it with a secret charm, and power of attraction which to the crowd is irresistible. ~ Barnaby Rudge by Charles Dickens It is the unhappy lot of thoroughly weak men, that their very sympathies, affections, confidences—all the qualities which in better constituted minds are virtues—dwindle into foibles, or turn into downright vices. ~ Barnaby Rudge by Charles Dickens "I have heard it said that as we keep our birthdays when we are alive, so the ghosts of dead people, who are not easy in their graves, keep the day they died upon." ~ Barnaby Rudge by Charles Dickens Above the rumbling in the chimney, and the fast pattering on the glass, was heard a wailing, rushing sound, which shook the walls as though a giant's hand were on them; then a hoarse roar as if the sea had risen; then such a whirl and tumult that the air seemed mad; and then, with a lengthened howl, the waves of wind swept on, and left a moment's interval of rest. ~ Barnaby Rudge by Charles Dickens Thoughtfulness begets wrinkles; remembering this, he soon put it up, smoothed his contracted brow, hummed a gay tune with greater gaiety of manner, and was his unruffled self again. ~ Barnaby Rudge by Charles Dickens As hollow vessels produce a far more musical sound in falling than those which are substantial, so it will oftentimes be found that sentiments which have nothing in them make the loudest ringing in the world, and are the most relished. ~ Barnaby Rudge by Charles Dickens Blunt tools are sometimes found of use, where sharper instruments would fail. ~ Barnaby Rudge by Charles Dickens "Robbery on the king's highway, my young friend, is a very dangerous and ticklish occupation. It is pleasant, I have no doubt, while it lasts; but like many other pleasures in this transitory world, it seldom lasts long." ~ Barnaby Rudge by Charles Dickens It is a poor heart that never rejoices. ~ Barnaby Rudge by Charles Dickens
