"Ah, Miss, hope is an excellent thing for such as has the spirits to bear it!" said Mrs Wickam, shaking her head. "My own spirits is not equal to it, but I don't owe it any grudge. I envys them that is so blest!" ~ Dombey and Son by Charles Dickens Night, like a giant, fills the church, from pavement to roof, and holds dominion through the silent hours. Pale dawn again comes peeping through the windows: and, giving place to day, sees night withdraw into the vaults, and follows it, and drives it out, and hides among the dead. ~ Dombey and Son by Charles Dickens "Ah, Miss Harriet, it would do us no harm to remember oftener than we do, that vices are sometimes only virtues carried to excess!" ~ Dombey and Son by Charles Dickens Captain Cuttle, like all mankind, little knew how much hope had survived within him under discouragement, until he felt its death-shock. ~ Dombey and Son by Charles Dickens "Its matter was not new to me, but was presented in a new aspect. It shook me in my habit - the habit of nine-tenths of the world - of believing that all was right about me, because I was used to it." ~ Dombey and Son by Charles Dickens "The object of our lives is won. Henceforth let us wear it silently. My lips are closed upon the past from this hour. I forgive you your part in to-morrow's wickedness. May God forgive my own!" ~ Dombey and Son by Charles Dickens "If you will take me for your wife, Walter, I will love you dearly. If you will let me go with you, Walter, I will go to the world's end without fear. I can give up nothing for you - I have nothing to resign, and no one to forsake; but all my love and life shall be devoted to you, and with my last breath I will breathe your name to God if I have sense and memory left." ~ Dombey and Son by Charles Dickens Long may it remain in this mixed world a point not easy of decision, which is the more beautiful evidence of the Almighty's goodness--the delicate fingers that are formed for sensitiveness and sympathy of touch, and made to minister to pain and grief, or the rough hard Captain Cuttle hand, that the heart teaches, guides, and softens in a moment! ~ Dombey and Son by Charles Dickens "It's nothing," returned Mrs Chick. "It's merely change of weather. We must expect change." ~ Dombey and Son by Charles Dickens "If you could see my legs when I take my boots off, you'd form some idea of what unrequited affection is." ~ Dombey and Son by Charles Dickens
