"I know quite enough of myself," said Bella, with a charming air of being inclined to give herself up as a bad job, "and I don't improve upon acquaintance." ~ Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens "Next," said Mrs Wilfer with a wave of her gloves, expressive of abdication under protest from the culinary throne, "I would recommend examination of the bacon in the saucepan on the fire, and also of the potatoes by the application of a fork. Preparation of the greens will further become necessary if you persist in this unseemly demeanour." ~ Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens Love, though said to be afflicted with blindness, is a vigilant watchman. ~ Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens The true pleasure of life is to live with your inferiors. ~ The Newcomes by William Makepeace Thackeray One of the hardest conditions of boyhood is the almost continuous strain put upon the powers of invention by the constant and harassing necessity for explanations of every natural act. ~ Penrod by Booth Tarkington "Exactly.
