Charles dickens quotes

 

“Playful — playful warbler,’ said Mr Pecksniff. It may be observed in connection with his calling his daughter a ‘warbler,’ that she was not at all vocal, but that Mr Pecksniff was in the frequent habit of using any word that occurred to him as having a good sound, and rounding a sentence well without much care for its meaning. And he did this so boldly, and in such an imposing manner, that he would sometimes stagger the wisest people with his eloquence, and make them gasp again.”
― Charles Dickens, Martin Chuzzlewit

 

 

 

 

 

“I have been occupied with this story, during many working hours of two years. I must have been very ill employed, if I could not leave its merits and demerits as a whole, to express themselves on its being read as a whole. But, as it is not unreasonable to suppose that I may have held its threads with a more continuous attention than anyone else can have given them during its desultory publication, it is not unreasonable to ask that the weaving may be looked at in its completed state, and with the pattern finished.”
― Charles Dickens, Little Dorrit

 

 

 

 

“Por menos valor que tenha a vida quando é desperdiçada, vale, contudo, a pena defendê-la. Se assim não fosse, não custaria abandoná-la.”
― Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities

 

 

 

 

 

“It was the best of times,
it was the worst of times,
it was the age of wisdom,
it was the age of foolishness,
it was the epoch of belief,
it was the epoch of incredulity,
it was the season of Light,
it was the season of Darkness,
it was the spring of hope,
it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way— in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.”
― Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities

 

 

 

Charles Dickens Quotes Part 115

 

 

“And this is another spell against which the shedder of blood for ever strives in vain. There are fifty doors by which discovery may enter. With infinite pains and cunning, he double locks and bars forty-nine of them, and cannot see the fiftieth standing wide open.”
― Charles Dickens, Our Mutual Friend

 

 

 

 

 

“-La tua stessa coscienza ti dice che non sei più quello che eri, io invece sono rimasta la stessa, e mi rendo conto che tutto quello che ci prometteva felicità quando avevamo gli stessi sentimenti è diventato presagio d’infelicità ora che siamo diversi.
Quanto sovente e con quanta pena abbia pensato ciò non voglio dirtelo.
E’ sufficiente che vi abbia pensato e che sia in grado ora di renderti la tua libertà.
-Te l’ho forse mai chiesta?
-A parole no, mai.
– E in quale modo allora?
-Mutando il tuo carattere, il tuo umore, la tua atmosfera di vita, le tue speranze, tutto ciò che rendeva il mio amore bello ai tuoi occhi. Se nulla mai ci fosse stato fra di noi, dimmi, mi sceglieresti ancora, cercheresti ancora di conquistarmi? Oh no, certo!”
― Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Devolva-se a humanidade à forja que a criou e utilizem-se martelos semelhantes para tornar a esculpi-la e ela se contorcerá na mesma imagem torturada. Cultivem-se de novo as mesmas sementes de desordem e opressão rapaces e certamente serão colhidos os mesmos frutos amargos.”
― Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities

 

 

 

 

 

“It is a dangerous thing to see anything in the sphere of a vain blusterer, before the vain blusterer sees it himself.”
― Charles Dickens, Hard Times

 

 

 

Charles Dickens Quotes Part 115

 

 

“His noble earnestness, his fidelity, his gallant shielding of her, his generous conquest of his own wrong and his own pride for her sake, are simply honourable, manly, and true. Nothing less worthy can be seen through the lustre of such qualities in the commonest mechanic, nothing less worthy can be seen in the best-born gentleman. In such a light both aspire alike, both rise alike, both children of the dust shine equally.”
― Charles Dickens, Bleak House

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Yet the bells, when they sounded, told me sorrowfully of change in everything; told me of their own age, and my pretty Dora’s youth; and of the many, never old, who had lived and loved and died, while the reverberations of the bells had hummed through the rusty armour of the Black Prince hanging up within, and, motes upon the deep of Time, had lost themselves in air, as circles do in water.”
― Charles Dickens, David Copperfield
